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 find reliable moving company in Colorado

Most of the time, you will need to enlist the help of the moving company for your relocation. However, finding a reliable and trustworthy company is something that you may want to pay closer attention to. Unfortunately, not all Colorado movers are equal. Some moving companies, unlike Home Grown Moving, might actually want to scam you out of your hard-earned money. You need to pay close attention when looking for a reliable moving company in Colorado if you want to avoid this happening to you. Luckily, you have plenty of resources at your disposal.

The best way to start looking for trustworthy moving companies is to find some referrals. Then you may also want to do a background check of the company in question, just to make sure. Finally, make sure to check what is it exactly that the moving company offers. But we will get more in-depth about it in our:

Guide to finding a reliable moving company in Colorado

If you follow the steps below, you will have no trouble finding a company that will be both trustworthy and reliable. Simply see if movers have all the requirements that we will present here. First things first, though. The best way to start evaluating moving companies is to:

Visit your mover’s website and read all the reviews!

Want to hire a reliable moving company in Colorado – Get referrals

When looking for interstate moving company Colorado, referrals are your best friends. These experiences of others will definitely help you make a better decision. The people that you may wish to ask are:

  • Family and friends – Always a great source of referrals. If you got a referral from a family member or a close friend, you will never need to doubt its authenticity. These referrals are the best ones to gather if you can.
  • Your acquaintances – Second grade of referrals, you can always ask all of your acquaintances if they had any positive experiences with moving companies. The small issue here is that people might want to impress you and may provide information that they do not actually have, but have read somewhere. People will be people, after all.
  • Other sources – You can also try to find referrals in other places, such as on the internet. There are a lot of places where people write reviews and they also might be worth checking out. Do note that this type of referrals holds the least amount of value for you, as you can never be 100% sure about anything that you read on the internet. You should also know how to recognize fake online moving reviews!
You can ask your friends for referrals too!

However you get them, the important part is that you have them. Next up, you will need to do:

A background check

A background check is something that you absolutely need to do before even considering hiring a moving company. Many people do not do this and they end up with their stuff being taken hostage. Avoid this and make sure to figure out:

  • Do they own a required license – Simple enough, every moving company needs to have a license for their operations. Failure to provide you with a proper license usually means one of two things. Either the moving company is really new in the industry and is in the process of obtaining one, or it is trying to scam its customers. Simple as that. Make sure that you know which type of company you are dealing with. Better yet, do not deal with companies that don’t have licenses at all. That is the safest option.
  • Experiences of the previous customers – Some of the customers will definitely want to leave a review. Check it out, see what they have to say. Always take it with a grain of salt, though.
  • How long does the company exist? – This one is also important, the best thing is to deal with a moving company that is at least several years old. That way you know they are here to stay.
  • Do their trucks have a company logo – Finally, if your moving company does not have their own logo on their moving trucks, something is fishy. You don’t really need to know what, simply don’t entrust your belongings to people who can’t be bothered to put their own logo on their moving trucks. Simple as that.
Check for the logo on the moving company’s trucks.

How to choose the right and reliable moving company in Colorado

Finally, after you’ve done everything above, it is time to communicate with the company and:

  • Ask for a moving estimate – First things first, see how much they want for your relocation. Then ask some other companies the same and see if the offers are at least at the same ballpark. A really low offer is automatically suspicious.
  • Get a list of moving services – See what kind of moving services the company offers. The more they can offer to you, the more professional they most likely are. If all you can see is “residential moving” and “long-distance relocations”, again something is fishy. Not a single moving company in good standing will have only those two moving services in their repertoire.
  • Professionals always offer moving insurance included in the price – Also something that you need to pay attention to. Some moving companies will give a great price for your relocation and everything might add up, but for one thing. Insurance. By cutting down on insurance costs, your movers might be able to give you a great looking estimate. Which is not complete without the insurance, of course. Don’t fall victim to this, always check if your stuff will be insured.
  • Do they offer storage solutions – Finally, if a moving company does not offer storage solutions, they might not be that great. The fact of the matter is that professional movers need to be a “complete package”. If you need something that is connected to your move, like storage solutions are, they need to have it. Simple as that.
