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 plan a long-distance corporate relocation

Corporate relocations are sensitive things. Even more so if the move is a long-distance one. You really need to plan a long-distance corporate relocation. You can’t simply just “wing it”. First, you need to look into some of the long distance moving companies Denver and figure out which one is the best for you and your situation. After that, you will need to figure out all the other factors that might influence your corporate move. Your employees also need to be notified, supplies need to be gathered, and so on. Finally, you may need to look into moving some of your items on your own. This article will provide you with the knowledge that you will need in order to accomplish this relocation as easy as possible.

How to create a proper plan for your long-distance corporate relocation?

There will be a lot of things to do in this endeavor. However, some are more important than others. These are the most important ones to consider:

  • Organize and plan the move in advance
  • Plan a long-distance corporate relocation with your professional mover
  • Inform your employees and assign some tasks
  • Get proper packing supplies for your long-distance corporate relocation
  • Move some items on your own
Create a moving checklist and organize your time well in advance.

Organize and plan the move in advance

You never want to be in a situation that you need to move everything asap. For a good plan to take effect, you need to formulate it well in advance, before the moving truck arrives. The first thing on your list is to select one of the commercial movers Denver. After that, you can plan everything else. Hiring movers in advance will allow you greater freedom in selecting a moving date and will provide you with greater negotiating power. Businesses are all about reducing costs and this is one way to do it, by hiring movers early. There will be a lot more things to plan for and this is the time to do it. The sooner you get to it, the better.

Plan a long-distance corporate relocation with your professional mover

However, you don’t need to do all the planning on your own. Your professional mover will have expert advice and insight to provide, as well as manpower and moving expertise. The best way to plan your office move is to sit down with your mover and nail down the specifics. Every situation is specific and you need to make sure that your movers know what to expect, as well as you from them. Leave nothing to be “implied” though. You want every agreement in writing, just to be sure. Don’t take unnecessary risks when your business is on the line. Most of the time you will have nothing to worry about, but it is always good to protect your business.

Inform your employees and assign some tasks

Corporate relocation is a large beast, so to speak. You will need to delegate some of the tasks to your workforce. Thus, you will need to inform them on time and give them enough space to figure out their future lives. Try to involve them as much as you can in the relocation and to provide them with meaningful responsibilities. Of course, try to incentivize your employees but not too much that the people that don’t have any tasks feel left out. You want to have them hyped for the relocation if at all possible. This will be a tumultuous period and everyone will need some time to get to grips with it.

Organize a meeting and inform your employees about the move.


The best way to do this is to first make an official announcement. Even if you think that “everyone knows”, you will still need to send out at least a memo to everyone. Rumors can easily get out of hand and the moving stress can seriously cripple the productivity of your workforce. Set matters straight by officially stating that you will be undergoing a corporate move. By doing that, you will significantly reduce any negative impact that these rumors might otherwise have.


When it comes to the relocation process itself, you want to empower your workforce by involving them in the meetings with the movers and the process itself. A great way to get them on board is to create small videos that will show off the new location and its surroundings, as well as the amenities around it. If you are offering relocation packages to your employees, make sure to provide some information about the neighborhoods that are near the new office.

Also, make sure that you are constantly updating your employees as well. If you don’t have an update system in place already, you can appoint someone to serve as a contact person for all matters regarding the relocation. That person can also provide regular updates to the rest of the staff.

Talk to the IT department

However, the most important people to keep in the loop are the IT guys and gals. These need time to figure out how to relocate all of the tech equipment that the company owns. Your movers will not be able to do this for you, you will need to rely on your IT department. That is why you need to give them as much time as possible.

Get proper packing supplies for your long-distance corporate relocation

You will need tips for packing as well as plenty of packing supplies for all your stuff. The best way to go about this is to first create a big inventory list and then figure out how many boxes and assorted materials will you need. It is not a good idea to save on these as anything that gets damaged can cause a loss of profits. Use high-quality materials and boxes and your items will be a lot safer.

Get proper packing materials and cardboard boxes.

Move some items on your own

Finally, you don’t need to rely on movers to relocate all of your stuff for you. You can considerably reduce the costs by moving some office items on your own. When creating a plan a long-distance corporate relocation, figure out who can relocate what effortlessly. You don’t want to put any more strain on people but if they can move a box each, that will save you some money that you can use for office improvement.
