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

Today, we are here to explain any extra fees to expect when moving your business in January.

The cost of moving in January may depend on a number of factors:

  • Are you moving at the last-minute? Your cost may be higher if you need to relocate your office at the last moment.
  • Distances of the location you are moving to. If you are moving long-distance the price is higher than the local move. The farther the location of the new office is from the existing one, the moving price may increase.
  • A number of floors. As a rule, the higher the floor, the greater the complication during the move, so the price of moving increases accordingly. If there is no elevator, the price may be even higher.
  • Means of transport. You can choose a truck, van or pickup and the price of transport depends on the type of means of transport, and thus the price of moving.
  • The capacity of things. Depending on whether you move a few pieces of furniture or an entire office building, the price can be different;
  • Types of things that are transported. If you have sensitive items, which require special careful handling or hiring a special expert, it can additionally burden the cost of the move;
  • Additional services. If, in addition to moving, you hire us for activities such as packing your things, protection with foils or special loading, unloading, installation, etc., the total price of moving increases with the number of services we offer.

Based on your needs and requirements when moving, we perform a free moving assessment and provide you with a calculation of potential costs that may arise during the move. We think it is fair to know in advance your moving budget so that there are no hidden costs.

There are other things that can further increase when you move your office in January

Not having a detailed relocation plan

If you don’t have a moving plan, you should better make one asap. And we don’t mean a plan on how you’re decorating your office once you move. There is a whole list of tips that can contribute to the maximum facilitation and simplification of the entire relocation process. The detailed plan includes the date of the move as well as the whole list of things you are moving. With this, there are to-do lists on what to do before and after your corporate relocation.

Depending on whether you move a few pieces of furniture or an entire office building, the price can be different.

The beginning of the move requires a detailed list of items as well as the transfer schedule in order to minimize additional costs and move the entire interior to the new space as quickly and efficiently as possible. The next serious items when it comes to fees are the elevators in the buildings. With that, it’s their carrying capacity, the width of the corridor, the proximity of the parking space, as well as the appropriate day of the move. All this has a great impact on the course of the move and the entire relocation. Not thinking in advance may cause additional fees.

Moving bulky items or heavy machinery

If you have bulky items or heavy machinery in your office building this may impact the price too… Especially during the colder period in January. This may happen if your equipment needs a special climate-controlled storage unit or other kinds of special handling.

Unpacking things

This is the one thing on the list that should not be taken for granted. Unpacking may take a lot of time and this may impact your work. Also, your new office may not be heated up yet so you may have to spend more money on electric bills. Still, if you mark each box and list the things in them, it will make the whole procedure easier and save you additional trouble and annoyance.

Price of international relocation

For international relocation, you may need additional documentation of moving items and trucks, which is regulated by international regulations. Hiring a freight forwarder helps you with the complete customs documentation. Still, with the pandemic going on, you may need additional documents. Unlike local relocation, it is necessary to mark and list in detail all things from the largest furniture to the smallest details. If there are books, paintings, or other valuables among the items, you need to obtain the appropriate approval from the competent authorities that deal with the review and assessment.

As you see, there are no additional fees when moving your office in January than any other month. Colder weather may a bit delay in the transport, but that’s basically it. With this, you can always consult us and we’ll be glad to help you out.
