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

Be ready for a rainy weather

Moving during rainy days can be very challenging, sometimes even dangerous. You should prepare everything in advance just to be sure you are secure and safe on the road. One of the good tips that can maybe help is that you should keep the truck close to your apartment. It will be easier for you to move furniture and belongings right to the truck.

Make sure that there is no water inside the moving truck. Therefore, rain can’t come inside the back of the truck when the truck is full of items and furniture. Moreover, you should get your truck ready for a long drive for moving on a rainy day. Firstly, check that all your truck’s lights are working properly. Secondly, pay attention to your windscreen when relocating on a rainy day. Thirdly, and also not the last important thing is that you should have 1.5mm good tire tread.

Drive safely in a rainy weather

Plan your drive for moving before anything else. A good recommendation is to look at weather reports and updates before you get on a long-distance trip. This could help you to avoid unsafe conditions and moving in really bad weather. However, if you find yourself stuck on the road with unexpected rain you could pay attention to this advice in further text.

To avoid aquaplaning you should drive slowly. Try to avoid roads covered by water. When are you driving pay attention to road markings. You should stay in the middle of your lane. Therefore, the good position of your truck is really important for your safety on the road. On the other hand, perhaps it is a good idea to hire Fort Collins movers to do moving on a rainy day for you. And for sure, you can feel more relaxed and comfortable when someone else is driving instead of you.

Pay attention to the distance between your car and a car in front

When are you moving in wet weather, you should remember that you need to drive slowly and that you have limited speed. If you are driving close to the car or any kind of vehicle in front of you, chances to crush into another vehicle are much bigger than in ideal weather conditions. Keep your vehicle 10 meters behind the vehicle in front of you. When you are relocating on a rainy day you need to double your stopping time on the road.

Then, if you are driving a truck with a trailer you need much more time to stop your vehicle on the wet road. So, keep far enough so that you can stop in time if you need that. You could always hire residential movers Denver that can help you with their services. They have professional and well-trained staff driving professional trucks and vehicles.
