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 Vail guide

Moving to Vail is similar to moving anywhere else, in many regards. You will still need to do a lot of research on the climate, economy, culture, and so on, like you would need if you’re moving anywhere else. All of the standard “moving stuff” will still apply, as well. You will need proper packing supplies, great movers Vail CO, and so on. However, perhaps the most important thing that you need to do when it comes to Vail is to find a job for yourself and a good school for your kids. This is something that can benefit you greatly in your life in Vail. It is not always easy to rush these things, especially in this area. That is something that you need to consider.

How to prepare when moving to Vail?

Your preparation needs to include everything that moving usually does. You will need to transfer utilities, make sure that your mail is changed to the new location and so on. The best thing to do when you are facing this process is to create a moving checklist. This document will list all the processes and activities that you need to accomplish prior to your relocation. It will also list the things that you need to pay attention to during the moving process, as well. Make sure to devote some time into the creation of this document, it will make your life a lot easier down the road.

Create a checklist at least two months before the move!

You may also want to add a few tasks that say:

Research Vail

In a nutshell, here is what you should research prior to your move to Vail:

  • Climate
  • Economy
  • Demographics
  • Culture
  • Transportation

Vail is a unique place and you need to be aware of everything that it has to offer. You also need to be mindful of the things that it simply can’t offer. By researching these factors and circumstances, you will have a much better idea of what you are getting yourself into. Perhaps the climate is great but you simply can’t live with the economy. Or maybe you simply are not comfortable with the people that make up the demographic. Sure, it is 2020 and everyone is equal and all but the facts remain. The best part is that you don’t even need to leave your home in order to learn about the new city!

On the other hand, by doing some research you will definitely find the things that you love about the place. Maybe you will really dig the culture that is thriving in Vail. This can make you even more excited about the move and bring you a lot of positive feelings. Ultimately, that is what you are looking for, reasons for and against moving to Vail. If you are on the fence then this activity will solidify your decision, one way or another. Make sure to allocate plenty of time to research!

Gather boxes and packing supplies before moving to Vail

After you’ve figured out that you want to move to Vail and reap all the benefits that it has to offer, it is time to get practical. If you wait for the last minute to acquire packing supplies and moving boxes you may end up either paying a lot more or having unnecessary stress of not finding enough of them. The best practice is to have these supplies in hand well before your relocation. If you want to save some money on these items, you can search for bargains online and offline.

Online, you have sites such as Craigslist, eBay, and similar. Offline you need to go to your local stores and ask them if they have some boxes that you might use for your move. Most of the time the stores will have an extra supply of boxes they are not doing anything with since they do receive them all the time. You can become the new proud owner of these boxes for a fraction of the cost or even free! Alternatively, you can ask your local movers CO if they can assist or point you in the right direction. They will be happy to assist you.

Gather cardboard boxes and packing supplies well in advance.

All in all, the early bird gets the worm. Or so they say.

Find a job in advance

This is absolutely critical. In more ways than one. You absolutely need to make sure that you have a job ready and waiting for you before you make the move to Vail. This will cut down on the stress levels considerably and will give you a great, positive, outlook once you move in. And this is really important as you will be making first impressions for quite some time. First impressions are often the most important ones in relationships and you want to make sure that you are at your best when it comes to them. And you can’t be your best if you worry about even having a job! And there are, of course, financial implications of having a job straight away. All in all, it may not always be possible but you should not wait to arrive at Vail before you go looking for jobs.

Search for a good school if you are moving to Vail with your kids!

The same goes for the schools that your kids need to attend. You don’t want to leave this for the last minute. You need to spend some time figuring out which school is the best for the advancement of your children. Every kid is different and you need to play to your kid’s strengths when choosing a school. However, since the moving process is tiring and takes a lot of time, you might also need some advice for moving with children!

Do you have kids? Search for a good school for your children before the move.

Hire Professional moving company

Finally, in order for you to be fresh and relaxed once you arrive at Vail, you will need the help of a moving company. Therefore, you should contact your professional mover and schedule an appointment! They will make the whole process infinitely easier and more enjoyable. All you will need to do is figure out how to throw the best housewarming party ever!
