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 protect your home during a relocation

There you are, going around your business, planning the move, and thinking about what awaits you. You have your to-do list and one by one, you are checking the items on the list. Calling one of the long distance moving companies Denver has – check. Making an inventory of the stuff you own – check. Arranging for the utilities at your new home to be turned on, on a certain date – check. The list goes on and on. There is a great chance that there is no item called ‘protect your home during a relocation’ on this list. Many people tend to forget about security measures when they are planning the move. It somehow slips their mind with all the other things that are going on. That is why we are here to provide advice and guidance for these stressful times.

Protect your home during a relocation by locking all the doors and windows

Locking everything behind you should go without saying. When moving long-distance it means you are not coming back and the house you are leaving might have its new owner soon. Sometimes, your move is to the local neighborhood, or town nearby, so the move will happen in several phases. In both cases, it is important to check all the locks you have on the gate, doors, garage. Windows should be sealed shut as well. No matter if you are leaving for good or only for a few days before you get back with small movers CO to get the rest of your things, you need to be careful. Thieves or local delinquents can barge into your home if they find anything open or unlocked. They can cause damage to your remaining things or bare walls in case you already took everything with you.

Do not leave spare keys where someone can find them

A lot of people have some places where they keep a spare key for emergency situations. In this instance, no need to leave the spare key under a rock or ceramic flowerpot. If there is a need to have the spare key somewhere, leave it with your family member or first door neighbor. If there is ever an emergency, your next-door neighbors can react on time and use the key if needed.

Take the valuable items with you

If you want to protect your home during a relocation, you need to think about all the valuable things you own that someone can take advantage of. In case you are not moving too far away and are packing and moving in phases, make sure to pack the valuables first. Jewelry is easy to move as it does not require too much space, just a proper box. But it is different when it comes to antique furniture pieces or even some art sculptures or paintings. In order to pack artwork for moving, you need to consult with professionals. If you cannot move the large valuable pieces immediately, you must find a storage space for them.

 Security cameras – a way to protect your home during the move

Having security cameras is a must these days. We should expect you to already have them and not necessarily install them a few days before you leave your home. What is important is to leave the security system on, until you are completely out of the house. And if it does not cost you extra, keep it until new owners of the house come. They will surely be grateful for this and you will be able to keep your home from harm during relocation. Even if you decide to disconnect the security system, leave the security system sign to repel the unwanted. If you have insurance on the house, no need to worry too much, but why not do all the precautionary measures if you can.
