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 rules you should follow when relocating an office

There is a big difference between residential and corporate moving. The corporate move usually includes a lot more people and furniture, such as employees and a lot of offices and machines. This means that your corporate move will include a lot more steps and that you will need to give yourself more time. The crucial advice is to start planning ahead and be organized. So, you need to think this through even before contacting moving companies Denver. With all of this, there are some other moving rules you should follow when relocating an office, and they are listed below to help you get this move done.

Moving rules you should follow when relocating an office
There are some specific moving rules you should follow when relocating an office.

Why is relocating an office difficult?

There are a few factors that differentiate commercial moving services from residential moving. If not done right, office moving can be a really stressful process. Additionally, it can even significantly diminish office productivity and morale. This is because the move will be a big change for everyone included in the business, and you will need to give them time to adapt. With all of this, there is also the functional part of the relocation. You will need to move big and bulky furniture, a lot of electronics and even more small things that have been accumulated in the office during the years.

Early planning is the most important of all the moving rules you should follow

This cannot be stressed enough; planning is half of the job. Contact your office movers Denver on time and give them all of the information relevant to the office. You will need to assign tasks to your team as soon as possible. It is really important that you figure out who will be doing what, how will they do it, and when will they do it. Last-minute moving is not something that can go smoothly with relocating an entire business.

One person should be in charge

You should assign one person to be the move manager. This way, somebody will always be on top of things and there is no chance of any oversight. See if anybody in your team has any prior experience with commercial moving and if they are willing to step up and take charge. If not, the best candidates will be the people that work in administration, and they already know how to handle similar projects.

Everyone should pack up their desk

The move will go a lot smoother if everyone is responsible for their own desk. Sure, you need to hire packing services CO for all the bulky furniture and machines, but when it comes to the smaller things your staff should resolve it. All you need to do is give them a due date. They will need to know the date by which all of their stuff needs to be packed so they can prepare in advance and not do it at the last minute.

I.T. team
Your I.T. team should make a relocating plan as soon as possible.

Tech is really important

I.T can be one of the biggest complications related to relocating an office. Do not underestimate the amount of time that is needed to disconnect and reconnect all of your technological equipment. After you set a final move date, you will need to have your I.T. department make a plan for relocating all of your technological equipment. They will also need to assess how much of the equipment do you really need to take with you. If you are working in the same office for an extended amount of time, there is a chance that some of your technology may be outdated or needs to be replaced. It is easier to assess this before the move as opposed to after the move. Why would you want to move something that you will not need? If there is a surplus of equipment, you can always donate to Computers with Causes.

Get to know the rules of the new office space

If you are moving to an office that is a part of a bigger building, you will need to check for any new rules before the relocation. Maybe the building has some rules about relocations, for instance, they may allow relocation only outside business hours. Make sure to get these rules as early as you can, it is always better to be safe than sorry.

Update your documents is one of the moving rules you should follow

There is a lot of documents that are linked to your business. A lot of these documents have to have the address of the office changed before the relocation. You will need to make new business cards, letterheads, envelopes, return labels, and a lot more. Another thing you need to do is to update your business partners and clients. You need to be really diligent about this step so you do not lose any business.

Labeling is key

Correctly labeling boxes is especially important when you are doing a commercial relocation. You need to carefully label every box and label them by the contents and the room to which they belong. This will prevent the fuss of finding things once you relocate. Additionally, the unpacking part of the move will go much more smoothly if you do this. All of this preparation will ensure to keep your business operations running during and after the move.

Measure everything

You will need to make sure that everything from the old office fits in the new office. Maybe the dimensions of the new office kitchen are smaller and the fridge will not fit. You will need to think about this sort of thing in advance, so you know what you can take and what you need to replace. So, get the dimensions of all of your bulky furniture and items and compare them to the dimensions of your new office space.
