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 speed up your moving process

Moving is a tiring and time-consuming process. It involves many different activities, such as packing, cleaning, gathering moving supplies, finding moving services Denver, etc. The faster you move out of your old home and into the new one, the sooner this whole stressful period will be over. Of course, you can’t always predict everything, accidents happen, and unexpected circumstances can slow down your relocation. But there are some things you can do to speed up your moving process. Read on and find out how to move into your new home as soon as possible.

Organize your belongings well ahead of the moving day

Relocation is all about being organized and prepared. Do everything you can in advance so that you don’t have to waste time on a moving day on unnecessary activities. Go through all your items and decide on which things you will keep and which ones you will get rid of. If you have things that you no longer use, furniture that won’t fit into your new home, clothes that you don’t wear anymore, there is no point taking them with you. Remember that the size of your move determines its cost. Sometimes it’s even cheaper to buy some new items than to move heavy and bulky things.

Divide all your possessions into three piles – keep, toss, donate. You can give old gadgets, lightly used books, magazines, clothes to charity, and help those in need. Also, you can organize a yard sale or sell things you don’t want to transport on eBay. As you already know, relocations are quite costly and this is a great way to make some extra money.

Start packing early to speed up your moving process

Once you organize all your belongings and decide which ones you want to keep, it’s time to start packing. Packing is the most time-consuming part of the relocation. That’s why it’s very important to pack everything in advance. You can either find a company that offers packing services or pack on your own. If you decide to pack yourself, start gathering supplies and packing items several weeks before the moving day.

Use bubble wrap to protect your items.

Packing supplies that you will need are moving boxes, packing paper, plastic containers, furniture blankets, tape, scissors, bubble wrap, markers. It’s crucial to protect every item before boxing it. Be particularly careful when moving valuable items and fragile things – use several layers of bubble wrap. Once you pack everything in moving boxes label each box. Write essential information on the side on the box – content, destination room, handling instructions. This will speed up the unpacking process after you arrive in your new home.

Find reliable movers

Hiring reliable and experienced movers to pack, load, and transport all your belongings will greatly speed up your moving process. A professional moving company such as Homegrown Moving Company Colorado will facilitate your relocation no matter the size of the move. Well-trained professionals will handle your belongings with care, offer valuable advice, and you won’t have to lift a finger.

Label your moving boxes.

All you need to do is research companies near you and choose the one that meets your needs and fits your budget. Make sure the company you choose is licensed and offers moving insurance. There are many fraudulent companies so make sure to do thorough research before choosing one. You can ask friends and family for a recommendation. This will save you a lot of time and effort. Also, these are people you trust so you can rest assured that their feedback will be honest and objective. In addition to that, check companies’ ratings on specialized moving websites. There you can find general information about the company, an overall mark, comments, and previously submitted complaints.

Ask friends to help you speed up the moving process

Your friends and family members can help you pack and move more quickly and efficiently. Let them know in advance if you are going to need their help so that they can make plans. If you have friends who have moved recently ask them for advice. There is nothing better than hands-on experience. Also, ask your friends and family to help you go through your stuff and declutter. Whether it’s organizing a garage sale or throwing some things away – their help will be invaluable. Don’t forget that moving also involves a lot of cleaning. Joining forces with your friends will facilitate the whole process. Finally, you will greatly accelerate the relocation if you ask several people to help you pack the things you want to move to your new home. In addition, you will save money because you won’t have to hire professional help.

Move some stuff early

Moving a part of your belongings beforehand will mean a lot on a moving day. Even if you move just a couple of boxes and suitcases, it will make a huge difference. Ask your new landlord to let you know whether the apartment will be ready and when you can start moving your things. Transporting some things before the moving day will give you a little extra time. As we already said, the goal is to do as much work as possible in advance.

Conclusion

It’s important that you make sure that everything is in order and ready to go before the moving day. Make a solid plan and include all the activities – from cleaning and decluttering to packing and loading. Hiring professional movers to help you pack and move your belongings will definitely speed up the moving process. However, you still have to organize all your stuff in advance and decide which ones you want to keep. If you decide to pack and move on your own, be prepared to spend more time on these activities. Ask your friends and family to help you with cleaning, organizing, and packing. In this way, you can save both time and money.
