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

Items your movers will not handle for you

When moving you want the best professionals on the job. However, people sometimes forget that even the best moving companies can’t do it all. Not for any type of their inability to do something, but for certain regulations. For that reason, we from the Homegrown Moving Company have decided to talk with you about items your movers will not handle for you. Here are just some examples of them. Do you think some unexpected items will be found here? Let’s take a look.

Movers won’t transport your pets

One of the first things that our movers will tell you is that they don’t move your pets. We love animals, but a moving truck is no place for them. Even if they are in their cages or containers it really isn’t a good enough place for them. There are many moving companies Westminster CO that will assure you that it’s best to take your pets with you when you’re moving. They will feel much safer and you’ll feel better having them around on the road.

Perishable foods are no place for a moving truck

Depending on the moving company your pantry will be off-limits to us. That’s because it can create more problems than you think. Crumbs and leftovers can attract rodents and animals that will enter our moving truck and not only eat your food but also nibble at your furniture and other items. That’s why it’s important to have professional packing services Denver CO to protect everything in the best possible way. For the case that your movers allow it to protect your items as best as you can, if not you’ll have to find alternatives.

Valuables are among items your movers will not handle

Be it that you’re moving down the street or across town you need to take special care of your valuables. That includes antiques and jewelry. It’s not that you can’t for some reason ask your movers to relocate them,but the problem is the estimated price of those valuables. It’s no problem for our residential movers Denver to take it with them, but in case of any mishap, your average insurance wouldn’t cover the losses. For that reason, pack your valuables well and hide them when you’re moving them with you.

Hazardous items your movers will not handle

It seems logical, but flammable and hazardous objects are not something that should and can be handled by movers. However, the main problem is that many people actually don’t know what items count in those categories. You can check the FMCSA regulations and other rules that determine what’s ok and what not to move with movers. Among them, there are fertilizers, nail polish, and different types of fuel and oil, chemicals, and much more. For that reason, be careful what you pack and want your movers to get in the moving truck.

Moving can be challenging as there are so many different items that you need to pack and move. Your new home is waiting for your pets, plants, and other items to arrive. However, some of them just won’t be able to arrive with the help of movers. For that reason, your best choice would be to ask about how much of a threat your items can be before actually moving them. Some of the items your movers will not handle can be safely transported in your vehicle, however other problems may arise. Have a safe relocation!
