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 temporary housing in Boulder County

There can be many reasons behind the decision to find temporary housing in Boulder County. A career can play a decisive role. Many people complete an internship or look for a temporary living solution in a project-related job. These so-called job nomads shy away from the expensive and time-consuming search. Temporary living has the advantage that it is cheaper than a hotel or other accommodation and can also be convincing in terms of coziness. When living temporarily, the stressed employee can already look for the right apartment in peace and quiet on the spot and has a place to relax and retreat in the meantime. Contact movers Boulder County to find out how can they help you in this process

Is temporary housing suitable for you?

Temporary housing is suitable for people who are looking for accommodation at short notice or for a shorter time. Some people do an internship during their studies and need a temporary apartment in another city for this purpose. Temporary housing can also be an advantage for people who are starting a temporary or new job in another city. They can then search for their dream apartment in peace and quiet on site. The model is also preferred by employees in the construction industry, who are often deployed at various locations on a short-term basis and for a certain period of time. But private reasons can also lead to people taking advantage of the housing concept, for example after a separation from their partner.  Still, because of possible high relocations costs, you need to make sure that you calculate everything well before moving.

A good interim solution is furnished living, even for people who have already terminated their old rental contract but whose new apartment is not yet ready for occupancy.

Things to pay attention to when looking for temporary housing in Boulder County

There are some things that you should pay attention to when looking for temporary housing in Boulder County:

  • Rental period. You should check in advance whether the apartment has a minimum rental period.
  • Costs. You need to clarify in advance whether there are any extra costs for final cleaning or the use of furniture in addition to rent and additional costs. The costs for electricity, telephone, and internet bills must also be taken into account.
  • Deposit. If a deposit is due, tenants should have it receipted by the landlord.
  • Inventory list for furnished apartments, it makes sense to make an inventory list in addition to the handover certificate. This will list all furniture that will remain in the apartment.
  • Contact details. Tenants should get the telephone numbers of important contact persons for emergencies such as the landlord or the janitor.
  • Contact your residential movers Denver and schedule your move on time.

Temporary housing for vacation purposes

Besides the presented concepts there is a limited housing form in Boulder County for the vacation period. This way offers more than the usual vacation homes. The concept is conceivably simple. For vacation time you can move into the home of another person. Thus the costs for the accommodation are void, the own dwelling is protected against burglars, domestic animals, etc. With most exchange portals there is only an annual fee in the upper two-digit to lower three-digit range. The larger the portal, the more attractive the offer. Any risks can usually already be covered by liability and household insurance. Some portals offer guarantee funds that can be used to pay for damages that are not covered by the insurance.

This offers financial compensation for lost vacation enjoyment – the main problem can be the search for a vacation date that suits both parties.

Become a roommate – temporary housing in Boulder County

If you are looking to find temporary housing in Boulder County one of the options is to find a roommate. If this is something that you can do you can live for a certain period with a roommate. In that way, you can share all the costs. There are many pros and cons. As already mentioned, you can save money by sharing the cost of the rent and utilities. This means that you can probably afford a nicer and better apartment than you could if you were living by yourself. Having a roommate can mean that you always have someone to hang out with. On the other hand, it can make your life much more complicated in case you do not get along. But in case you do, having a roommate can have a lot of benefits. Homegrown Moving and Storage Company Colorado can help you settle in.

Extended-stay in a hotel

One of the options when looking for temporary housing in Boulder County is to extend stay in a hotel. You can find a hotel that has either a full kitchen or kitchenette. Many of these extended-stay hotels offer as well as free breakfast, happy hour, and front desk service. These services can help with some of the stress of staying in a temporary apartment, especially if you have to feed and entertain a few kids while you’re waiting to relocate to your new home. There is a rule that if you stay longer the rates are cheaper. Many of these accommodations have extended-stay rooms, so be sure to inquire if a certain property is ideal for you.
