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

5 Common Moving Day Mistakes

At Homegrown Moving and Storage Company, we’ve handled a lot of moves and helped a lot of folks. We’ve also seen some common mistakes people make when moving day comes. So, we’ve compiled this list to help you be more prepared and learn from others mistakes! We hope this helps you plan your day and have a safe and successful move. 

1. Not reserving your moving truck or trailer:

Once you have your move-in date planned, be sure to call and either reserve your moving truck rental or coordinate with your moving company a couple weeks in advance. If you show up day-of for your move you will likely have a hard time finding the truck you are wanting. Especially if it is over a popular moving weekend.

2. Failing to have everything boxed and packed:

You should plan to have all of your items packed and staged the day before moving, leave nothing for the day-of. Of course you may need a few bare necessities, but otherwise plan to take the time and have everything ready. It’s a common mishap to save some packing for moving day, this can cause added stress, loss of time, and even money if you aren’t able to get the appropriate truck and moving materials due to things not being ready.

3. Forgetting to hire or have volunteers to help move:

If you are planning to move entirely on your own you may want to reconsider. Moving is very time consuming and tiring. Hiring some help even for a few hours can make a huge impact and also help you save energy for unpacking.

4. Communicating with new place of residence:

If you are moving into a new apartment building or condo, be sure to communicate your moving details well in advance. You don’t want to show up with all your belongings only to realize they aren’t ready for you! Be sure to have everything planned out to make for a smooth transition.

5. Underestimating how long it will take:

It’s common to misjudge how long packing, moving and unpacking can take. Be sure to give yourself extra time on the before and after side of the move. Consider taking an extra day off work to help ensure you have enough time to get everything done. Moving all your belongings is a very involved and lengthy process and to do things safely takes even more time, so be sure to account for this in your plans!
