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 cut moving costs and expenses

Relocation is usually referred to as one of the most stressful processes you will go through. In addition to this, it is also mentioned as an expensive process. However, neither of these scenarios has to happen. First of all, you can get some help which will make your relocation a stress-free process. On the other hand, there are some ways in which you can cut moving costs and expenses. We got your back- just read the article and you will know what to do when the time comes.

Finding a reliable mover can be helpful

Even though this does not seem so, hiring a moving company can help you cut moving costs and expenses. You will be paying for their services but you will get much more in return. For example, it will be possible to add packing services to your moving agreement. Your movers will bring their packing supplies and do their best to protect your belongings. This means that you will not have to get packing supplies on your own and to spend quite a lot of time packing everything.

In addition to this, you will also not have to waste time finding a suitable moving truck. You will have to pay for renting it and all of that may be more expensive than hiring a mover. For this reason, feel free to put your trust in Homegrown Moving Company Colorado. Their professionals are going to be by your side every step of the way.

Set up a budget in order to cut moving costs and expenses

One of the best ways in which you can cut moving costs is by setting up a budget. In order to do it properly, you should think about several things. First of all, you should ask for moving quotes Denver. As a matter of fact, feel free to ask for several moving quotes. By doing this, you will see how much money several companies will ask and it will be easier for you to make a decision. In addition to this, you should also think about insurance, hidden fees, moving equipment, etc. Once you know how much money all of this can cost, it will be much easier to set up a budget. So, before you start completing the tasks from your moving checklist, make sure you have saved enough money.

Choose wisely your time of relocation

It is a well-known fact that summer is the busiest time of the year when relocations are in question. This means that moving during summer costs more in comparison to moving during other seasons. So, if you have the luxury to choose when you are going to move, feel free even to choose winter.

Yes, it will maybe be cold, but if you are relocating locally, this will not be a big deal. Just make sure you prepare everything on time and call local movers Denver. You will have nothing to worry about. Your moving costs will be significantly lower, maybe even 20-30%. Use this opportunity and everything else will be much easier to handle.

You may not have to buy packing supplies

In case you decide to pack your belongings on your own, you will probably start thinking about where and when to get packing supplies. However, you should not do this until you have used everything you already have. For example, if you still own the original boxes of your electronic devices, feel free to use them. Naturally, you should do this only if they are in good condition.

In addition to this, you can use your linen, towels, pillowcases, etc. instead of packing paper and bubble pack. By doing this, you will get to save a lot of space, that is, you will have several boxes less. You will not have to worry even if you are relocating interstate. Your items will be packed well and they will be safe. On the other hand, you can hire Denver packing services. They will supply you with all the necessary materials and pack your items for you.

Not bringing everything with you will be helpful

One more way in which you can cut costs and expenses is by not bringing all of the items with you. Instead, what you should do is to put some of them in a storage unit. For example, if it is summertime, you can store your winter clothes and vice versa. In addition to this, you can also think about what appliances you are not going to need for some time and store them as well.

What is great about renting a storage unit is a fact that you will know your belongings are safe. The unit is monitored 24/7 which means that you will get to preserve your peace of mind when this is in question. Also, you will get to decide how to organize your storage unit. In this way, you will know what item is in what place. There will be no need for you to wander around looking for a specific item.

If you have thought that it was impossible to cut moving costs and expenses, we have shown you that it is possible. There are several ways in which you can do this without affecting the whole moving process. Now, what you should do is to start thinking about these pieces of advice and put them into practice. Once you start, you may even get some ideas of your own. You will get to survive your relocation without going bankrupt. When you arrive at your new home, you will not be worried about whether you will have enough money for the bills or for grocery shopping.
