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

Equipment you should have when moving during the winter

Moving during the winter season has its pros and cons. While you may get a lower moving estimate and the moving date you wanted, there are some downsides as well. You can never plan for the weather you’re going to have on your moving day. Chances are you may get stuck in a blizzard or it can get really cold, making it harder to work. Preparing properly for your winter relocation is key to a successful moving process. One of the things that you should put on your moving list is getting all the equipment you should have when moving during the winter. We’re here to help you with that! Read on all learn what you need to get before you start moving.

Driving on icy roads, unpredictable weather conditions, and low temperatures are just some of the obstacles when moving in the winter.

Moving in the winter may require professional assistance

We know that many people think that they can move perfectly safely all on their own. However, during the fall and winter seasons, there are more risks than you might think at first. Slippery roads, bad weather, and traffic can really stress people out. All of this stress can lead to mistakes and a very hectic moving process. When you hire movers Highlands Ranch CO to help you out, they’ll know exactly what they need to do. Not only will they plan out the entire process for you, but you’ll get peace of mind knowing that everything will go smoothly and without any issues. 

When it comes to the equipment you should have when moving during the winter, you have to think of your own safety first. That means wearing proper clothing and footwear on moving day. Wear boots that will be warm and that won’t slip as easily on the icy pavement and roads. Gloves are a must, to keep your fingers safe from frostbite, and waterproof and windproof jackets will make a big difference.

Other things to keep in mind

When you’re relocating during the winter months, you might want to consider packing everything in plastic bins instead of using cardboard boxes. In case it rains or snows on your moving day, your cardboard boxes can get soaked and the items inside will get damaged. As we all want to keep them safe during transport, plastic bins will be a great choice. If you decide to hire full service moving companies Denver, they can also help you pack for the move and they will have the equipment you need.

Cardboard boxes may not be the ideal packing material when moving in the winter. Consider getting plastic bins instead!

Last, but not least, secure your car before you relocate. No matter if you’re moving locally or long-distance, driving on snowy roads is something you shouldn’t take lightly. Snow tires are a must when moving in Colorado in the wintertime. Sprinkling salt on your driveway to melt the snow will help out your movers as well! Drive slowly and don’t brake suddenly – this is something every driver should know!
