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 help your kids settle in the new home

Relocation is a difficult period for anyone involved in the process. It can be most difficult for children who are moving with you. The change of scenery is not something they might adapt to very easily. You can hire moving companies Denver to help you prepare for this relocation, but remember to involve your children in the process as well. This will allow them to feel more confident about the relocation and feel like they are a part of it. However, you will probably have to figure out how to help your kids settle in the new home after you arrive there and we have some advice for you.

Things to do to help your kids settle in the new home

Moving with children is not only about them being unable to adapt immediately to their new surroundings. It is actually more than that. Especially if your children are pre-teens or teens. This change will impact their social life, as well as their own mental being.

However, we all know that relocation does not mean the end of the world. This is why it is important that you communicate with your children before and after the relocation, to learn what they think about it. Moreover, before your Thornton CO movers arrive, create plans on how to help your children adapt. For instance:

  1. Take your children on a tour of your new home
  2. Unpack the children bedroom and items first
  3. Engage in family activities together

Take your children on a tour of your new home

Moving into the unknown can have serious mental consequences on your children. Their unfamiliarity with new surroundings might create anxiety and low confidence in the future. That is why it is important that you take a tour with your children to introduce them to their new home. Do this before you start packing, so you do not waste any time while in the process of preparing for the move. More importantly, this will help your children get to know their new surroundings and have an easier time adapting to them.

Unpack the children bedroom and items first

The best way to help your kids settle in the new place is to allow them to have their own space as soon as possible. As a matter of fact, you can let them choose their rooms before you unpack. This way, they will have a higher sense of control over the situation. More importantly, they will have an easier time adapting as they will find out that this might be a good way to change things up a little bit.

Engage in family activities together to help your kids settle in the new home

Finally, create some fun activities to do when in your new home. For instance, you can host a neighborhood garden party to get to know the neighbors. This will help your children feel less “out of place” in their new surroundings.

On the other hand, they might get to know some children from the area and make friends. Additionally, you can help your kids settle in the new home by going on frequent walks. That will allow you all to de-stress and learn what you can do in the area.
