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

Handwritten checklist

Outlining how much time your relocation consumes

Every move is unique. There is not an exact formula that can calculate precisely the total time your relocation will take. Numerous factors determine the overall time and they may fall under the following categories

  • scheduling a moving company
  • packing your house
  • overall run time on a moving day
  • drive time
  • settling in/placement decisions

Scheduling a moving company

You know where you are moving to and now you need to choose a good moving company and set a date. Your first step is to book trusted and experienced moving professionals who will successfully carry out your relocation from the starting point to the end.

Finding the most suitable moving company will take some time – usually up to a week. Explore your options, do some research, ask for recommendations, fill in several moving quotes to get in touch with respectable moving companies in your region, and get free estimates.

Call or email the movers that best meet your requirements and needs. Have a meeting in person to interview them, discuss the details of your move, compare the offers you obtained, and choose movers Parker for your relocation.

Packing your house

How long does it take to pack your house to move?  Begin packing your house well in advance to take the stress off your neck and shoulders. Declutter and donate everything that is not of great sentimental value or you haven’t used in a year. You will start to feel lighter and deal with the packing with more ease. Pack one room at a time. Pay attention not to overload the boxes and exceed the recommended weight. It will take an average person to pack a typical studio/one-bedroom apartment for 1 -2 days. However, a professional movers crew will pack it and unload it in 4-6 hours. For other household sizes and estimated packing time read in more details here or request packing services CO to give you a full packing plan.

Find out how much time do relocations consume

How long will the moving day last? How long does it take to load the truck? Some aspects that affect the overall time of loading the truck are listed below:

  • Can we approach your location with the truck?
  • How many flights of stairs are there.
  • Are the hallways to the truck long and narrow?
  • Is it the long carry out in general?
  • How much furniture.
  • How many boxes.
  • Is anything still unpacked?
  • Size of the elevator.
  • Additional stops on the way and pickups.
  • How well organized you are with where you will place your items within the home and whether the items will fit.
  • Do we need to disassemble or reassemble any of your items in the moving process?

If you have prepared everything ahead of time and everything goes with a flow, our professional mover crew will load the truck in about:

  • 2 hours – when moving a studio or one-bedroom apartment
  • 3 hours –  to relocate  a two-bedroom home
  • 4-5 hours – when moving a three-bedroom home
  • 6 hours – when relocating a four-bedroom house

Drive duration

We at Homegrown Moving and Storage Company try our best to meet your moving needs and provide you with the best possible service whether you need a short distance or interstate movers Denver. Short distance move, across a town, will take a few hours.  Accordingly, if you are moving across the country transportation will last for several days or even a week. A lot of factors may affect the duration such as the intensity of traffic or weather conditions.

Tip: If we have enough time to plan and schedule our move, the ideal time would be from mid-September through April (as far as the cost is concerned). If we define the ideal time by how fast and smooth the whole relocation may be conducted, the ideal time would be the mid-month in the middle of the week (or Monday to Thursday at least), most preferably early in the morning.

Settling in finally

Congratulations, you’ve made it, you are there. moreover, all the planning, all the costs paid off by hiring a moving company. You’ve had professional support and guidance throughout the whole process of relocation. Homegrown Moving and Storage Company conducted your relocation impeccably, they paid attention to every detail of your move and they ensured a safe, smooth, stress-free relocation.   We unloaded and placed your items according to the given plan. You will need a few extra days to unpack and arrange your new home to your liking, but settling in and feeling really at home may take a few months. Breathe out, make yourself a well-deserved cup of coffee and start adapting to your new home.
