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 to Denver with kids: How to prepare

A new business or other life opportunity has come up and you have decided to move to Denver, CO. You probably know already what awaits you if you have moved at least once in your life. But this time, it might be different as you are not relocating to Denver alone. Moving, in general, requires a lot of patience and planning ahead. Moving to Denver with kids means even more careful planning and organizing. Not just because there are a lot more things to pack and think about. There is a psychological factor you need to consider, depending on the age of your children. Change is stressful for anyone but can especially be tough on young kids.

Finding a reliable company in order to move to Denver with kids

Finding a company you can rely on means you will have more time for other important things. After an in-home survey and the estimate given by the movers, the only thing you need to do is decide on the number of services you want to use. There are some that can be an additional cost but on the other hand enormous time-savers. Things like obtaining packing supplies and packing are such time-wasters. If you can afford to hire packing services Denver CO movers will offer, go for it. Moving to Denver with kids will be stressful enough, without you having to spend time on something others can do for you.

Which season is the best for relocation to Denver?

When moving to Denver with children, the best season for it will depend on your child’s age. If your kids are still toddlers and are not going to school, you can make a decision more easily. You should choose the season based on your needs and responsibilities. Also, moving costs vary across seasons, so take that into account as well. But if you have schoolers, then you might want to wait for the school year to be finished. Or at least wait for the break between semesters. Change of school and meeting new friends can be a cause of early anxiety with teenagers.

Upsides of moving to Denver with kids

If your kids are still too little to understand what is happening you are lucky, as it clears you from answering endless questions of what and why. On the other hand, if your kids are of an age when they can assist you in anything, use that. They should be able to assist in packing their own rooms and toys. Also, in case you opt for a yard sale, involving kids will make it way more fun. When moving house with a large family, the delegation of works is the key to success. With everyone being aware of their responsibilities, moving to Denver with kids does not have to be such a dreadful experience.

Things to do and look forward to after moving

While still planning the move, you should start researching the new city and area you are moving to. Not only because of the kids, but for you as well. It is good to be able to show your kids a new school where they will go to. Also, try and find all the amusement centers and recreation suggestions. This should take off the burden from your shoulders a bit, as children will know what to expect and what to look forward to. After settling down, the best way to spend a day off is to explore the city and make a picnic in the nearby park. Family time should be the best time to overcome the stress from the move.
