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 Take Care of Your Pets During a Move

Moving day can be stressful on your cats, dogs, and other pets. What should you do when moving day comes to take care of your beloved critter? Here’s some tips to help you plan a stress free move for your pets!

  1. Take Your Pet to a Daycare: It could be worth the extra money to find a place to take your pet for the day that’s nearby where you are moving to. This way you know they are safe and won’t be affected by the chaos of seeing everything moved out of the house. Plus they may even get worn out play with other pets while they’re there!
  2. Hire a Walker or Pet Sitter: Another alternative option to a pet care center would be to hire someone to come watch them in part of your house, or take them on a long walk. If it’s a dog, some businesses even offer day adventures for your furry friend. They’ll pick them up and bring them back to you happy and well cared for!
  3. Move Your Pet First: If you have a pet that’s more adaptable, you could consider moving them to your new home first so they can get settle in and adjusted until you show up. We wouldn’t recommend this if your pet has anxiety issues and certainly don’t leave them alone longer than their normal routine.
  4. Drop Your Pet Off at a Fellow Pet Friends House: Does your pet have a playmate? If so, consider arranging a playdate at their friend’s house for the day! This way your pet can have a carefree fun day while you handle the move. There’s also a good chance that their energy will be low after playing which could help them settle in nicely.

You may want to talk to a local pet coach or pet store for additional advice pertaining specifically to your pet and their personality/behaviors. It’s ideal if you can take your pet ahead of time to their new home and introduce them before making the move. Try and take things slowly in order to let them get adjusted easily. Positive reinforcement like a toy, treats, or special meal once they are in their new home could also help!

If you have any questions about planning a move for you and your family, please feel free to contact us at Homegrown Moving and Storage Company of Colorado 303-587-6200.
