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

How to budget for moving a four-bedroom apartment from Denver to Lakewood

At Home Grown Moving company, we know that moving out of your home is a very stressful change. One of the most common things you’ll ask yourself is whether you’ll have enough money to move. Moving a four-bedroom house can prove to be a very tough and lengthy task. There are many packers and movers Denver has to offer, and you want to know if you can afford them. That’s why we’ll show you how to budget for moving a four-bedroom apartment from Denver to Lakewood. In this article, we’ll show you how you’ll be charged for several kinds of moves. For each kind of relocation, we’ll discuss prices and fees. On top of that, we will also bring up any additional fees you might want to take into consideration.

Moving a four-bedroom apartment from Denver to Lakewood – how much can it really cost?

When talking about moving in general, the average cost can be anywhere between $400 and over $7,000. If we want to be more specific, the average cost of moving a four-bedroom house, locally or long distance, is $3,000 to $16,000. Of course, this all depends on how you plan to move. You could either search for Lakewood movers to do the job for you. On the other hand, since Lakewood isn’t too far from Denver, you could plan a DIY move! While you should always get an in-home estimate from any company you are considering for hire, the following will give you an idea of what to expect for your four-bedroom move.

Know the average cost of a move so you won’t be surprised.

When moving to a location that is less than 100 miles away, movers typically charge by the hour. The average rate at which they’ll charge you is about $100 per hour for two movers and a truck. In your case, however, a four-bedroom house will require three to four movers. This means that the hourly rate can be around $150 to $170. Moving a four-bedroom apartment will take around 8-12 hours. This means you’ll be paying $1,200 to $1,800 at least just for labor. Long carries may also mean extra fees. With a long-distance move, above 100 miles, the cost depends on the weight of your goods, the distance of the trip and plus the cost of extra services and additional insurance, if you get any. If you want to hire licensed movers, make sure to look for them on the FMCSA database, just to be safe.

Your budget depends on how you plan to move

Your exact moving budget can vary greatly. It depends on the things and services you’ll need. You might hire some of the many home movers Denver has to offer, or you might self-relocate. Another factor you must consider when making a moving budget is figuring out if there are new things you need to buy or not.

Moving a four-bedroom apartment from Denver to Lakewood can be expensive.

As we said earlier, you have several options when moving. A DIY move is better for smaller homes and distances, like apartments or small houses. Moving the contents of a four-bedroom apartment or house, especially long-distance, can be quite the task. However, there are expenses other than those related to moving that you should take into account.

  • Truck rental, if you opt for a DIY move.
  • Packing supplies
  • Food
  • Additional services
  • You might also need to use storage services

There are many moving services Denver available. However, that’s also where’s where things get expensive. Hiring professional movers will cost more because you’ll be paying for labor, services, insurance, and so on. Of course, this doesn’t mean you’ll necessarily break the bank, as it depends on your needs and such. Though, people will often do lots of planning and saving before a relocation as the prices can go up to thousands of dollars. When working on your moving budget, consider the following. If you end up opting for hiring professional movers in Denver, get quotes from several companies to see which offer suits your budget best. If needed, also consider costs for things like plane tickets, car shipment, fuel, a storage unit, etc.

Other things to consider when making a budget for moving a four-bedroom apartment from Denver to Lakewood

Your moving budget is far from set in stone. If only moving were that easy and if it didn’t come with consequences, it’d be so much easier to manage and budget. However, since you are moving out and will have to accompany your movers, that means you’ll be absent from work, which means your paycheck might be a little lower at the end of the month unless you get it covered. Then again, since you’re moving from Denver to Lakewood, you can definitely squeeze the move in during some days off. This is more of a problem when you’re moving cross-country and need to hire some of the most reliable long distance movers Colorado has ever seen. Keep in mind that you should only hire licensed movers to avoid getting scammed!
