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 move to Denver on short notice

Denver, Colorado is a beautiful place to live in. It is an urban center with all the benefits that brings, but also with its unique spirit, rich culture and havens from the concrete jungle in the form of great parks. All of these things make Denver a rather beautiful and suitable location to pick to when planning to move… but what if you are not planning? What if something all of the sudden changes your life and uproots it. What if you have to move to Denver on short notice?

A little bit about Denver before we move on

Denver is the city of crossroads. Sitting right next to the Rocky Mountains, it was a place people travel through as they pass from shore to shore, but also travel to as they sought to exploit the mineral riches. In time, the city has grown, and now it is one of the biggest cities in America.

Let’s see what awaits you in Denver

It holds more than 700 000 people in the city proper, but also 3,5 million people in its wider metropolitan area. Denver is also something of an urban safe haven, being the most populous city within a 500-mile radius.

It is something of a magnet for big tech companies, but also has traditional economic branches such as infrastructure and mining. This diverse economy means there is something for everybody. Therefore, even if without a plan, if you move to Denver on short notice we have no doubt it will turn out for the best. Denver has a lot to offer to those who are not afraid to seek it.

Take inventory and plan ahead for your move to Denver on short notice

Since you didn’t have much time to prepare, you have a lot to do before local movers CO come to pick you up. First and foremost – grab a pen. You need to make a plan on how you will move. At what dates. How long you have to prepare etc.

Secondly, make a checklist of all the items you have in your possession. Categorize them however you like. The only important thing about the categories you creat is that they make absolute and perfect sense to you. If they don’t, then they serve no purpose what so ever, even if the applied system is best for most people. In other words – there is no one size fits all – you have to find your own way forward. 

Scout for the perfect apartment

If you are in a hurry to pick out last minute movers Denver, maybe also pick out where they will actually move you. Now, the perfect apartment has a somewhat different definition than usual in this particular case. Perfect is really “the best available at such short notice”. Be sure to handle your expectations.

Hire good movers

If you are going to move on such short notice you need a very best out of moving services Denver that will be capable of delivering what you ask of them in a short time and at reasonable prices. Accordingly, you should consider these particular factors when deciding on the moving company that will be doing the relocation.

  • First and foremost, get a flexible moving company. You are short on time, which means that you need someone who has shown previous experience in handling stressful situations that change from minute to minute. To find those, you will need to search for the best-reviewed moving company you can find.
  • Furthermore, make sure that they are on time. To move to Denver on short notice means you have no time to waste. Therefore, you need punctual professionals. When reading their reviews, make sure that they are praised for this particular attribute.
  • Communicative staff is also rather crucial. Because planning time is so short, you need a lot of things to go right in the planning phase. For that reason you need a company that is courteous and prepared to go step-by-step of the planning phase with you, helping you adjust the schedule and even the budget.
  • Affordability should not be compromised. This doesn’t mean that you are looking for a cheap job, but also be aware that a bigger bill doesn’t equal better service. Be sure to check all available options before committing to a company.

This last point ties in pretty well with another topic that we would wish to discuss with you.

Get as many moving estimates as you can

Before you pick out your mover, be sure to get as many moving estimates as possible. This will allow you to check which mover is the most affordable while still providing a reliable service. And remember, even non-binding estimates are subject to the 110% rule. Movers cannot charge you more than 110% of the original estimation.

Inform everybody that you are to move to Denver on short notice

If you have to leave your town in a hurry and move to a different city, be sure that you informed everybody who matters something to you that you left.

In the chaos of a sudden move that is a surprisingly easy thing to forget. And here, we mean not only family and friends, but also gym memberships, mail service, etc.

Have a farewell party

Even though you are to move to Denver on short notice, that is hardly a reason to miss out on a farewell. Before apartment movers Denver come and pick you up, call friends over.

You don’t have to put on a big party. Sit around, have drinks, enjoy yourself. You deserve at least some respite before the whole chaos starts and you are on your toes until you fall asleep in Denver.

Final points

Before you move to Denver on short notice, be sure to check all of your essentials. They should be on your person at all times. These are things like medication and hygiene… Documents as well. With that by your side, nothing else that you temporarily lose can be so bad.
