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 simplify unpacking after moving to Lakewood

Colorado is the state of choice for many people. It is the eighth biggest state in size and the 21st most populous of the 50 states. People living here enjoy its magnificent connection to nature, the diverse cities, and the recreation opportunities. If Colorado sparks an interest, you should know that there are 73 cities and 197 towns to choose from. If you consider moving to one of them, Lakewood, you are in the right place. We can recommend you our moving companies in Denver area for your move, and we can help you by sharing a few tips on how to simplify and speed up unpacking after moving to Lakewood.

What can you expect when moving to Lakewood?

Lakewood is a small-sized city in Colorado that close to 156,000 residents call home. It is located in Jefferson County, 7.5 miles away from the capital of the state, Denver. The main reason why people choose this city over Denver is the suburban spacious feel it offers since the population density is 3,588 people per square mile. Other good sides of living in Lakewood are:

  • Moderate winter temperatures
  • Good educational system
  • Affordable costs of living
  • Plenty of job opportunities

Most people own their homes in Lakewood, so they can even enjoy having a backyard. The spacious feel and connection to nature draw people in, more precisely 3,900 people in the last two years. This shows that some of the best movers Lakewood CO has to offer have been busy, and they will also relocate your household with pleasure. They can also unpack your items, or you can learn more about unpacking after relocating to Lakewood below.

Is it even possible to speed up unpacking?

Packing is a notoriously time-consuming task, ideally taking 2-3 months to complete. Unpacking is the reverse of packing, so it will be faster to accomplish, or so it seems. It might not take you months, but weeks for sure. It will greatly depend on the size of your inventory, home, and unpacking speed. The speed of professional packing services Denver CO moving companies offer is unmatched, but practice makes perfect. Motivation plays a big role, so it is possible to speed up the process if you are motivated to do it. So, the real question is, how to motivate yourself to unpack faster?

You can make unpacking simpler by packing in a more organized way

Packing greatly influences unpacking, so you should use the one technique that makes unpacking faster – the color-coded labeling system. It will take one hour at most to set up, and it will save you time and strength. First, you need to assign a color to each room, for example, green for the kitchen. Everything from your old kitchen will be packed in boxes with green labels. Those same boxes will be unloaded in your new kitchen. For successful use of this method, you need to inform your helpers of the colors used.

Simplify unpacking after moving to Lakewood by taking a slow, organized approach

If you start unpacking without an order, you will be left with a mess. It can be tempting to take out things as you need them. But a better way is to start unpacking room after room. For example, you will likely need the kitchen as soon as your movers drop you off. Long-distance moving is tiring, and you will be hungry. Start by taking out the essentials, and slowly build your way up to less frequently used items. Use this approach for every room in your home, and watch the packed boxes disappear without chaos. Naturally, it is good to ensure you have the best cross county movers Denver has to offer by your side as they will greatly affect the speed of the process.

If you moved locally, they will for sure accept to help. In case you relocated further away from them, it can be a good excuse to see each other again!
