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 myths you can forget about

There is a lot of misconception about the process of moving. All of this can add a lot of stress that is unneeded. There is already all the actual stress and organization needed to make the move. These moving myths can lead to a lot of mistakes and damages. It may lead to problems with handling your belongings, and even to financial loss. You will need to invest some time to research all the tips and tricks. These tips and tricks will make the move go as smoothly as possible. Also, these tips will help you with everything from picking the best movers in Denver to knowing how to properly pack your belongings.

Moving boxes are not important is one of the biggest moving myths

A lot of people will just search through their house for old and used boxes and will think that they are sturdy enough for the move. Another common practice is to go and ask for free boxes at the grocery store. One of the biggest moving myths is that any box will do. Used boxes are usually not as sturdy and reliable as boxes that are made especially for moving. Maybe your old boxes will be good enough for a door-to-door move, but that is about all they are good for. If you are planning a bigger, long distance move you will need to get boxes that are made for moving to prevent any damage to your belongings. Another great thing about buying moving boxes is that they will all have the same dimensions and that it will be easier to stack them in the moving truck.

Moving myths
Getting appropriate moving boxes will break one of the greatest moving myths, the one that states that there will always be damaged in the moving process.

You can wrap your things in anything

Another great moving myth is that it is a good thing to wrap everything in newspaper paper. Newspaper is not reliable and it will leak ink onto your things at the first sight of rain. You will never see professional movers such as movers Parker CO wrap your things in newspaper paper. They will always use packing paper because its design will protect your things better and the packing paper will not leave a mark on them.

It is not important to label and inventor your belongings

Inventorying everything and labeling your things and boxes as you go will take a lot of time, but it is worth it. It will make it easy to find anything you need once you are all packed up. It will also help you know if you have lost anything in transport. Labeling your boxes by the principle of which room do they go to after the move will make it a whole lot easier to unpack in your new home. Research the best ways to pack your boxes as they will come as a great help after the move.

Label everything
Even though labeling and inventorying all of your items takes time, it will be worth it.

You have to do all the packing

The most stressful part of moving is packing. Labeling and organizing your things is really important, but some people are just not cut out to do this job properly. If you are feeling overwhelmed by just the idea of packing, you can always hire professional help. If you have a really busy schedule this might help you by significantly expediting your move. Some moving companies offer packing services CO and will do all the labeling and inventory for you.

You cannot avoid damage is a moving myth you need to forget

While this may be true if you are moving for the first time and decide to do everything on your own, if you decide to work with a professional moving company this will never be the case. Hiring a professional service will give you the guarantee that you are working with trained and skilled professionals that know everything that there is about the service you are paying for. Professional movers will also put down floor runners and cover doorways and stair rails to ensure that your old home and new home suffer no damage.

With the right tools and professional help, you can avoid any cause of damage.

There is no difference in moving companies

A lot of people have the perception that all moving companies are the same. This is a huge misconception and a moving myth. You need to do research and compare moving companies by their moving quotes and the availability of information. Another thing that all responsible moving companies have is a USDOT number. This number means that they have a legal registration. If they have a USDOT number, their business is legal. And there is surveillance which means that there is no risk of fraudulent work.

You need to look up online reviews from former customers and get referrals from the people you know. When you narrow your search to a few companies it is time to ask anything and everything that you need to know. This can be in relation to moving details or any kind of specialized services that you could need. If the company is willing to put their time into giving you all the details that you seek that means that they are responsible.  Working with this kind of company means that you will have no problems in finalizing your move.

Moving needs to be chaotic is one of the most stress-causing moving myths

Moving is a huge process, and it can be a stressful experience for a number of factors involved. However, neither does the move itself need to be stressful nor does the moving process need to take a lot of your time. Moves are chaotic only if you do them at the last minute or with unprepared help and unprofessional movers. Lack of organization will surely lead to chaos, but you have all the power to prevent that from happening. Just take your time to organize your move.  Finally, you need to make sure you are working with trained professionals and your move will be done before you know it.
