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

Difficulties you face when moving by yourself

The time has come to relocate your home. Sadly, this time you must do everything by yourself. Moving home can be hard even if you have a few helpers and now when you must do it all by yourself, it can be almost impossible. Although, with a good organization and a bit of help from Denver area movers it can be done after all. Therefore, let us prepare for difficulties you face when moving by yourself and try to avoid them as much as possible.

Preparations can be quite hard

Ok, it is understandable that you do not know where to start. There are plenty of tasks you must cover in such a short time. Hence, we advise you to begin with a thorough home inspection. Cover each room and note down all your items along with all furniture you possess. This is a mandatory step that will tell you the complexity of your moving project. And of course, the number of packing materials required. Then, figure out your moving date and set aside a moving budget. Once you have the basics on paper along with the inventory list, you can call your Denver small movers and start working on your moving contract. There are quite a few difficulties you face when moving by yourself but if you keep everything on paper and follow your notes, you will stay on schedule. Most importantly, you will never forget a thing.

Preparations will be difficult for sure. But if you focus and create a detailed plan, it can work after all.

Searching for movers

You will search and choose your movers depending on the time and budget you have. Browse on the internet and in a matter of minutes, you’ll find a few fine choices. Apply your search criteria and personal preferences and choices will narrow down. Call cross country movers Denver you have found and check if they are up to the task. They must possess the following:

  • Licenses and permits.
  • Tools and equipment.
  • Sizeable moving vehicles.
  • Knowledgeable and experienced manpower.
  • Appropriately priced moving services.
  • Moving insurance.

Those are just the basics. If you need special moving services to find a moving company that provides them. Communicate with your moving representative and find the best solution for your situation. Let them help you find the best way to prepare for the relocation and they will do so. Utilize free onsite estimates, obtain the moving quote, and work your way from there.

Packing is one of the difficulties you face when moving by yourself

Another among the difficulties you face when relocating by yourself and probably the most annoying one is the packing process. This is something that can take almost all of your time, energy, and sanity. Therefore, this is a moment to seek additional help. Call your friends, relatives, coworkers, neighbors, or whoever you think that can assist with this task. You need them only for a couple of hours if you do the preparations for packing that is. Hence, purchase cardboard boxes, labels, adhesive tape, and blister packs online or at the nearest hardware store. Have all the materials ready and once your helpers arrive, do the magic. On the other hand, if no one replies, you must pack alone.

Packing all by yourself is almost impossible. But if you have enough time, you will get there eventually.

Do it gradually and over time. Cover room by room until you are done. Hopefully, you have at least a month until your moving date. If you do, it should be enough. And if you can’t cover this task alone, ask your movers if they can do it instead. Browse through the moving services Denver offer and purchase packing services. Let movers do it instead while you do everything else. Packing is half of the relocation anyway so if you do it this way, it would be a game-changer.

Difficulties you face when moving by yourself are tied to legalities as well

Lastly, legalities are not so hard to cover but they are time-consuming and they require you to commit and walk the distance. Most of it can be covered online but in a certain situation, you must be present physically. Therefore, start removing these tasks as soon as you realize you are moving. Check your ID, driver’s license, school diplomas, medical records, bank documents, etc. Ensure everything is up to date and ready to be used in your new environment. You can submit all forms and requests online and for DMV in Colorado, just stop by and renew it within an hour.

Those were the difficulties you face when moving by yourself. At least the main ones. We all have different situations in our lives but most of us have similar problems when relocating home. Hopefully, now you will be ready to act accordingly if you find yourself in this situation. Good luck.
