Dear valued clients,
Our business is continuing to operate as we navigate the current COVID-19 situation, and we are adapting our operations by practicing social distancing, and reiterating the practices of good hygiene, like frequent hand washing, providing hand sanitizer and gloves for the moving crews. We are also offering virtual onsites for current/ future clients during the current situation. We will do our best to keep our current clientele informed of any changes to current/ future moves.

As our client, your safety and health is our #1 priority during this state of emergency. Please consider the following guidelines to prepare for your move with us:

⚠ADVICE FOR CLIENTS REGARDING SETTING UP CONDITIONS FOR A MOVE: • Upon our arrival, please have your residence/ office/ items as ready as possible (cleaned/ sanitized and ventilated in advance) for the removal of your items. • It is recommended that you/ your representatives will keep, at a minimum, 6 feet of distance from our crew. Our crew members will keep, at a minimum, 6 feet of distance or more at the time of service. • You will assure continuous ventilation of the spaces we work in at all times. • Please provide dedicated bathroom(s), equipped with soap and paper towels for our crew members.

⚠LIMITATION OF LIABILITIES OF MOVING COMPANIES AND THEIR RIGHT TO CANCEL WORK (NATIONAL LOCAL MOVES): The Government has stated it is or will be implementing (as yet) measures to combat the spread of the virus. Such measures in place might impact our ability to provide services to you (including but not limited for us having to suspend or cancel in full the services) or the virus otherwise affects our ability to fulfill your relocation. This may place us in a position where we will not be able to accept any ability for any losses that may arise and we limit our liability accordingly. We are keeping the matter under careful review and will ensure that all customers are advised of any developments that may affect fulfillment of contracted services.

As our team at Homegrown Moving Company has been following updates, we are choosing to work with & adhere to the guidelines set forth by health officials and authorities. We want to do our part in mitigating the impact and spread of COVID-19 to the businesses and communities we serve, and we are implementing the following strategies to do so:

We have discussed with our team members what to do in the scenario that anyone is experiencing symptoms or may have been exposed to the virus. We have an understanding among ourselves to be transparent if somebody's not feeling good or may have been exposed. We understand the need to self quarantine for the proper amount of time, if this occurs, to avoid any further spread. In turn, we ask the same from our customers. In the event that you are feeling sick or may have been exposed, we are happy to make arrangements for another move date.

Use of examination gloves: Our teams will wear examination gloves while servicing moves as an additional hygiene measure and self protection. Gloves will be discarded after each move.

Due to the high demand of masks, we are unable to provide them at the moment, but if you would like masks to be provided for your move, please provide them and we can use them.

Our team will also have hand sanitizer, and we ask that they are allowed to use a sink or water source to wash their hands when available. Social distancing: Upon arrival to our customers' homes or offices, team members will follow the protocol of social distancing, allowing 6' between team members and you, our customer. We have always valued the professionalism and respect that accompany an introductory handshake, however during the COVID-19 outbreak, we ask that our customers understand for safety purposes that we will refrain from shaking hands or making physical contact.

Proper ventilation: In move settings when available, we request that our customers open outside doors and/or windows to increase air circulation. All of the above will be effective immediately and remain in place until April 20th, until we can reassess the situation and make further announcements. We strive to continue to practice CDC/ Federal / State/ WHO (World Health Organization) guidelines for health and safety to prevent contagion in our community.

Thank you, Homegrown Moving

3 Tips to Plan Your Cross Country Move

3 Tips to Plan your move across the country

Are you or your family looking to move either to or from Colorado? As you could imagine, there’s a lot that goes into planning moving across state lines. We’ve compiled some things to keep in mind while you plan your big move.
  1. Packing: Boxing up your belonging can seem like the most daunting task when beginning to plan your family’s large move. For starters, you should take an inventory of your home room by room to see if moving is a good opportunity to purge or downsize some items. If don’t like the idea of having an estate sale, especially if you’re only listing a handful of items, then consider posting them on a local classified page like NextDoor or Craigslist. This will cut down on some packing and expense to your move. You should start stockpiling boxes early and even consider packing your house in stages starting with the rooms/items you use the least and that are non essential to your daily life. This phase of the move may be worth hiring some help for packing to expedite things and ensure your belongings are safe and ready for moving. Make sure you clearly label boxes by room and item clearly with a permanent marker on all 4 sides of the box for the other side of your move! Get creative with packing materials, however some materials may be worth purchasing for things like dishes, collectibles, fine china etc.
  2. Storage: Hopefully you’re able to move directly from one home to another, however if you’re not planning on that, some temporary storage will be vital. If you want to cut down on the number of times you have to load/unload your items options like PODs and shipping containers are a nice alternative.  Although they’re not nearly as affordable as a storage unit which typically offer free storage for the first month. Consider hiring some loading help if you plan to store your belongings to cut down on the number of times you’ll personally have to move things.
  3. Moving Day: We recommend writing out a detailed schedule and list for your big moving day. This should include any last minute items that need to be packed, an inventory or larger items (for best packing), and anything that needs to be cleaned or finalized before you leave your residence. You really can’t over prepare this day so try to buffer in an extra day before to plan, pack, and prep so you’re not too stressed. Moving is a big deal so the more prepared you can be for your move the better it will go! So be sure to give it the time and attention it deserves. If you are moving using friends and family be sure to account for some extra time vs. using a professional moving company. Having moving volunteers is great, but it’s undoubtedly going to take extra time and effort.
If you have any questions on how to plan a large cross-state move please reach out to us at Homegrown Moving and Storage Company Co 303-587-6200! We are happy to help plan your entire move and we even provide free moving quotes for local and across country moves.
