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

Getting settled after a long distance move from Arvada to Vail

After you’re done with your long-distance move, it’s time to get cozy and ready for life in your new home! This is the time when you’ll meet new neighbors and make many changes, such as your address for important mail and shipping. You may feel tempted to take a short break after the move to Vail, but taking care of crucial tasks as soon as possible is for your own good. Getting settled after a long distance move from Arvada to Vail is a must, and Home Grown Moving Company is here to tell you how! Don’t worry, we know that this is a stressful time, so we will do our best to give you as much helpful advice as possible.

Take the first steps to get settled after your long distance move from Arvada to Vail

The best first step is to set small goals. In other words, make your tasks small and easy to do after the move. For example, your goal can be unpacking and setting up your kitchen by the end of the week since the movers Vail CO offered you to deliver your items. For now, focus on the main rooms first, and then the ones you use less frequently. Make a list of priorities and stick to it: don’t think of your new Vail house as one big mission. You can, for example, break up the tasks by unpacking one room at a time. Of course, the piles of moving boxes and materials will get on your nerves. There are things you have to do besides packing after the move from Arvada, however.

There are some things you should do first after you move to your new home.

After you finish moving with your Arvada movers, you should change your address. Either visit a local post office to do so or fill out an order for an address change online. Doing this will make the post office know to forward your mail to your new home address. On top of that, change your address with any financial institutions or banks where you have accounts or credit cards. One last thing you should do is to visit your local DMV to keep your driver’s license up-to-date. Overall, your main goals are to make your new Vail home habitable and to sort out your documentation. 

Start getting used to your new home

To settle down after a relocation, whether it’s a move from Arvada to Vail or elsewhere, isn’t a simple process. You might want to fulfill tasks one by one, but the truth is you’ll have to do many things at once. 

  • Meet your new neighbors as soon as possible. You can’t really go around and ask people to be your friend, but the least you can do is be acquaintances.
  • When it comes to unpacking, it will take some time so don’t rush it, and make a plan. By taking small steps, you will feel accomplished when going from room to room. You won’t feel overwhelmed and will actually feel relieved every time you can check something off the list. Or, if you don’t want to do everything yourself, see if your Denver residential movers offer services such as furniture assembly and more. 
  • Change the locks to your new home. You can either call a locksmith or buy a new lock and install it yourself. The previous owners or brokers may still have the keys to the current lock. While this might not necessarily be a bad thing, you should still feel the need to change the locks.
  • There are many different long distance moving companies Denver can offer you, and each has its own moving services. If you have things that need to be handled with care, don’t worry. Certain companies move special items such as pool tables, art, and such.
  • If you find yourself having too many items or even have sensitive items, don’t worry. You can use your moving company’s storage services, or look for storage units in Vail and the surrounding area.

If you break your duties down into smaller tasks, you’ll find them easy to do.

Once you start and do it for a while, it gets easier

Now that you have started the whole process of unpacking and sorting things out, you’ll see that it does get better if you give it time. However, just because it started doesn’t mean it’s going to be over soon.  In fact, there are still many things you can do after moving to Vail from Arvada to make your life in this new area better, like making an effort to explore your neighborhood. Don’t think that this is something you can do within a week or a month. Find out where the grocery stores, retailers, parks, and restaurants are at to make things easier for you. If you have a car or a motorcycle, you can go for a ride and see where the roads will take you. Though, you can also do this by walking on foot.

After a long distance move from Arvada to Vail, you might want to rest.

You should also find ways to keep yourself entertained in your new home. Libraries, sports clubs, and various different communities are worth it. Not only is joining them a good way to pass the time, but they are also a great way to meet new people. On top of that, you can just go to a park or café in Vail. You might not get to know someone right off the bat, but it will still be a nice experience. Don’t feel like going out? Don’t worry! Just stay inside and start settling down in your new home! You can order takeout if you don’t want to eat out or cook. You can also watch a movie at home and huddle under piles of pillows and blankets. Overall, getting settled after a long distance move from Arvada to Vail isn’t so bad.
