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 Tips for Finding Affordable Places to Live in Denver

5 Free Resources for Finding Cheap Places to Live in Denver

It can be difficult to find an affordable place to rent in Denver, that’s why we’ve come up with 5 resources to help you with your search! Leveraging these tools can help make sure you find the best place to rent at the right price for you.

Zillow:

This app and website is super handy for looking at both places to rent and purchase. You can add multiple filters for things like number of bedrooms, bathrooms, yard size and obviously location. You can even custom draw what area you are searching in, which helps your search be more specific than a general zip code search. You can also communicate with landlords directly through the app for easy and safe use.

Craigslist:

Craigslist is still a great free listing for finding local places to rent. Although scams have increased over the years, it is still a very viable option for searching for rentals. The nice thing about this platform is you will find more “diamonds in the rough” if your looking for things like a basement to rent out of a home or a carriage house. There are still plenty of apartment listings on this site too. You can typically find better deals on this platform because you are usually dealing with owner directly instead of a rental company. Be sure to use caution when looking into a listing. Never send anyone your personal information or money prior to viewing the place. Additionally, never go view a rental by yourself, take a friend with you to make sure that your experience is safe!

Facebook Groups:

Facebook community groups have grown rapidly in recent years. You can search and join local community groups and connect with individuals directly. These groups list everything from places to rent to furniture. Try finding some for the areas you’re looking to move to. You have a better chance of finding something more unique and affording with this platform than going to apartment directly.

Nextdoor:

NextDoor is a very helpful free app that can help you keep a pulse on your neighborhood. This directory houses everything from safety issues, free stuff, for sale items, and places to rent. The caveat here is that you have to register with your address to use the app. This can work great if you are just trying to move to a new place nearby, however if you’re trying to move across Denver you’d be hard pressed since you are connected to you immediate community group. However you can still try searching the platform. People often post rental properties on the group, or you can post your own query about looking for somewhere to rent.

Networking:

Lastly, nothing beats some good old fashion networking. Asking your friends, family, and connections about places to live can be the easiest way to find something easily and affordably. You may get connected to a place that hasn’t even come on the market yet through knowing someone. Don’t be afraid to reach out to people and see if anyone knows of any rental opportunities. We all have that one friend who seems to know everybody, so ask them if they know of anyone having a place to rent opening up! This can also be a great way to find roommates if you are trying to cut you rent by sharing a place.

As always, please feel free to reach out to us at Homegrown Moving Company for all of your Denver, Vail, and across Colorado moving needs!
