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

You must know that movers won’t release the cargo without the payment. It is simply how most furniture movers Denver operate, if not all moving companies. They are obligated by the contract to keep your items until you receive the bill of lading and they have the payment in full. For this reason, you must prepare your moving budget as well as your rent. Although, you can always rent your apartment and move a bit later if you are short on cash at the moment.

Down payment is something to think about when renting a small home in Denver

Now, the deposit is something no one can’t escape when renting a small home in Denver. You must ask your landlord straight away what is the size of it. Usually, it should be the size of one rent. But some landlords are greedy or to protect themselves, they ask for three rents upfront, or in some cases, even 6. So, to avoid being a victim of a scam communicate this part straight away. Do not sign anything before you talk to your realtor, real-estate agent, landlord, and whoever is helping you to find your new apartment. Also, inspect the property in person straight away.

What is the size of the rent?

Ok, the size of the rent is the main decider in this story. Obviously, it will tell you if you can support your monthly payments or not. So, you must crunch your numbers before you even begin looking for a Denver neighborhood. Renting a small apartment in Denver is not so easy if you are on a budget. Hence, put a limit on it or decide if you have a stretching one. Once you have the numbers on paper, start browsing through the real estate market and the moving industry. Your new home is waiting for you as well as Denver professional movers.

Renovation and legalities

Another cost related to renting that might fall onto you are the home repairs and renovation. Some landlords try to pin various repairs to new renters. For example, a barely working TV or an AC. Or holes in the wall behind paintings and similar things. They will later accuse you that those damages occurred on your watch so you better inspect everything beforehand and put it all on paper before signing a lease. Most landlords are honest and they communicate with you regarding those repairs. In other situations, they even help you downsize your new home and take what you do not need out of the apartment so you have more space for your furniture. There are many ways to reduce costs or to be a victim of unnecessary ones. It all depends on what kind of landlord you stumble upon.

And now you know what costs are related to renting an apartment. Renting a small apartment in Denver is fairly easy if you know what you are looking for. Hopefully, now you do. Good luck and happy hunting.
