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

Moving during the pandemic

The coronavirus has been here for a while and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. But our lives can’t stop just because of it. You might have to move despite the pandemic. And considering that relocating is always pretty stressful and demanding, you can only imagine what it’s like now. But don’t worry, we’ve got your back. We’re here to tell you some tips that will help make moving during the pandemic a little easier and more manageable. From tips about movers Aurora CO to advice about your safety, we’ll cover it all. So, if you want to learn how to successfully move into your new home during the COVID-19 pandemic, this is the article for you. Let’s dive in and see what you can do to make this relocation a better experience.

Is moving necessary?

First of all, start by asking yourself if moving is really essential right now. Are you moving because you have to or is it something that you could postpone? Of course, because we don’t know how long we’ll have this pandemic to deal with, it’s hard to tell when the best time for your move will be. So, if you’re unhappy in your current space or you need to relocate for a different reason, that’s fine. The pandemic doesn’t have to stop you.

But if possible, maybe you’d like to consider the idea of delaying this transition. If you are in a high-risk group or you’re experiencing any symptoms, it’s best to move at a later date. But if you’ve decided that you 100% want to move during the pandemic, there are things you can do to make sure you’re staying safe.

Take care of your health and safety while relocating during the pandemic

Taking care of your health and safety is the number one priority during this time, especially when you’re relocating during the coronavirus pandemic. Usually, when moving, you’re mainly worried about your items arriving at the destination safely and avoiding any injuries. But this time, you also want to avoid getting the virus. So, here are some precautionary measures you want to take.

  1. Wear a mask while relocating during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the masks aren’t a 100% guarantee that you won’t get infected, they significantly reduce the chances of that happening. Also, by wearing the mask you’re protecting those around you. So, if when you’re in contact with other people while moving, wear your mask.
  2. Keep your hands as clean as possible. Throughout the day we touch countless objects and collect a lot of dirt and bacteria on our hands. That’s why it’s super important to keep your hands clean by washing them as often as you can or disinfecting them.
  3. Don’t touch your face. Just like you’ve probably heard ”wash your hands” about a million times, our guess is that you’ve also heard that you shouldn’t touch your face. But we’ll remind you once again. To avoid getting the virus into your mouth, nose, or eyes, just refrain from touching your face. At least until you wash your hands.
  4. Keep your distance. Social distancing is crucial if you want to be careful and responsible. So, if you’re working with full service moving companies Denver, remember to keep a safe distance from the movers.
  5. Sanitize the high traffic areas like doorknobs and handles, light switches, faucets, etc.

Check out moving companies’ COVID-19 statements

If you were worried that you’ll have to do it all alone because of the pandemic, don’t fret. Despite the pandemic,  moving companies are still open for business. So, if you’d like to hire residential movers Dever, you still can. But before you do, we suggest reading the company’s COVID-19 statement.

Before hiring movers, check out its COVID-19 statement to learn how they’re operating during the pandemic.

This includes all the information that lets you know how the movers are operating during the pandemic. It also tells you about the precautionary measures the movers are taking. For example, they need to keep the trucks sanitized, wear masks, and keep hand sanitizer in the trucks. So, it’s good to take a look at this statement to be aware of how they are conducting business at this time. But working with professionals is definitely going to make moving during the pandemic much easier to bear.

Handle whatever you can online when moving during the pandemic

Because we’re meant to be staying inside and avoiding contact with other people, the Internet is our friend. Luckily, there are a lot of things you can get done online and avoid leaving your home. So, when you’re relocating during the coronavirus outbreak, we suggest handling some of your moving tasks online.

  • Ask the movers for virtual moving estimates.
  • Research the movers online. Ask them for a video call instead of going for a face-to-face meeting.
  • Change your address over the USPS website.
  • See if you can get a virtual house tour when looking for a new home.
  • Do all the paperwork you can online.

Sanitize your new home

Once you get to your new home, all you want to do is relax and put your feet up. But, there’s something you should do first. Take the time to disinfect your new home. Focus on the high-traffic areas, as mentioned above, but don’t forget about all the other surfaces as well. Because the virus can remain on surfaces for a long time, you want to make sure your home is clean and safe before you start getting comfortable. So, clean the kitchen counters, the appliances, tables, shelves, disinfect your bathroom, etc. This is something you can’t leave for later if you’re moving during the coronavirus.

Keep yourself and others safe – be responsible

Lastly, we just want to remind you that you should be responsible and think of your health but also the health of those around you. This doesn’t only mean wearing a mask. It also means letting the local movers CO know if you’ve had any symptoms or if you’ve been in contact with someone who’s sick. Don’t put others at risk if you know that you’re potentially contagious. Also, take care of yourself, follow the rules, and try to keep yourself safe and healthy. We wish you luck if you’re moving during the pandemic and we hope that it will be a success.
