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 your apartment tips

Once the moving process starts, people can often feel a little overwhelmed. There is just so much to do and think about and probably very little time to do it. But worry not because we do have some aces up our sleeves. Let us help you with moving your apartment and doing it without stressing out.

Make a solid plan before you start moving your apartment

Every big decision you make will require a solid plan before executing it and that includes moving. Relocating isn’t simple and can often stress people out a lot. This is why you have to start planning weeks before your move is scheduled to happen. If you are living on your own that means calling someone to help, whether its apartment movers Denver or your friends and family.

Your plan should include a week to week actions you are going to take as the relocation is closing in. A week to week plan is something that will give you an excellent working ethic and also time to relax. After you are finished with your weekly tasks, get back to living your life and do not worry about it until the next week. Just because you are moving doesn’t mean your life will pause around you. Daily activities are crucial to keeping you sane and healthy as this stressful process is in motion.

Ask for professional help

Moving your apartment without professional help can be somewhat difficult. There are a lot of items you probably can’t manage to move on your own. Or you can but not quite effortlessly or without damaging them. This is what Homegrown Moving and Storage Company Colorado is here for. To relieve you of the difficult task you may face while moving your apartment.

Alongside movers, a professional cleaning crew can also come in handy. You may need a helping hand regarding the cleaning part after all the furniture is gone. Those were some hard to reach places that probably piled up dirt witch is hard to take care of. While the crews are doing their job helping you, you can focus on your weekly tasks and other important aspects that need your attention. The process itself will be a lot cleaner and faster with some help from professionals.

Declutter before you start packing

Before you start with the difficult task of packing, you must leave something behind. Especially if you are moving into a smaller place. But none the less, decluttering is an essential part of moving your apartment or house. Downsizing and cleaning out will help you save time and money as well. You will have fewer things to pack and that means fewer boxes to use and buy. Another great thing is that even though you are spending time decluttering, you are shrinking your packing time. It takes way less effort and time spent to throw something out than to pack it.

Declutter your home before moving

There is no need to throw everything in the trash just yet. You can use this to your advantage and do some good as well. For some of your items, you can opt-out to donate. There is no wrong time to try and help people in need. And trust us it feels just as great as moving your apartment. Other stuff you can sell over some online selling sites and earn some money. Learn how to manage your selling platform to make the best out of it. This money can be well spent on packing supplies that you are going to need, Just make sure to sort out what you have at hand first. Use stuff like towels and blankets to wrap up fragile items. Using up what you have at home as supplies for packing will save you money and boxes as well. So don’t go fishing for supplies just yet.

Pack room by room to spare yourself the stress

Room by room packing is by far the most efficient way to pack and here is why. You can start with the rooms you use the least in your apartment. When you are done packing them, use them as storage for the rest of the packing process. This way you can function normally throughout your apartment as the moving is in process. It will also spare you the stress of having to go through piles and piles of stuff you have no idea they came from.

Go through this process in the same manner as decluttering. After you have decluttered your apartment, go with the packing process in the same order. Do not forget to label all of your boxes with the content of it and the room they belong to. Learn how to prepare fragile items for transport as well. Save yourself the trouble of opening up every box in your new place just to find some linen. Unpacking after relocation will be so much easier as well.

Pack your essential bag

Your essential bag is the most important thing to get you through the first few nights. After you are done moving your apartment you will probably be all exhausted. The bag of essentials for moving your apartment should include:

  1. Basic hygiene equipment
  2. Change of clothes
  3. Linen
  4. Some canned food and snacks
  5. Water
  6. Important paperwork

Of course, everything depends on the person packing it but some of these are probably in everyone’s essentials bag or box. Pack anything you will probably need and tailor it to yourself, as long as you are covered for the first few nights in. Learn why your emergency bag is crucial for your moving process. This way you can relax and start the process of unpacking how and when you like it without the rush.

Moving your apartment can be tricky if you are not as experienced. But with a little help from us and experienced professionals, anything can be managed. No need to stress out. Just make sure you start early and make a solid plan and you are good to go!
