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 business: how long does it take?

Relocating your home can be very stressful, but moving your business can be a very daunting challenge as well. Moving your office is a major project that requires careful planning. You need to consider how long it will take because the longer your office is closed, the less business you will get. So, you need to move your business quickly and painlessly. How long moving your business will take depends on many factors. And, Denver movers will show you the optimal time that you will need to relocate your office successfully and safely.

How long does it take to move your business?

Well, no one can tell you for sure how much time you will need to relocate your office. However, one thing you must remember. Your business will suffer more if you are closed for a long time. Relocating an average office can take up to 12 months. Yet, everything depends on the documents, equipment, employees, and others. However, there is one thing you can be sure of – you need to start planning on time. Sit down with your employees and discuss the moving plan. There are a lot of things that need to be discussed and prepared in advance. You need to search for some of the most reliable commercial moving companies Denver has to offer, talk to your landlords, set your budget, create a timeline, and much more.

Moving your business can be very stressful, but planning on time will make it much easier and more efficient.

Create a to-do list and a moving schedule

Before you start with the whole “moving your business” process, it is advisable to create a to-do list. The list will help you organize everything much easier, will keep you on track, and you will know how much time you will need to accomplish the tasks from the list. The things you definitely need to include in your checklist are:

  • inform your employees about the relocation
  • set up your moving budget
  • search for professional moving services Denver has to offer
  • pack your office stuff or hire packing services Denver to help you
  • relocate office furniture and IT equipment
  • prepare your new workspace

Also, when planning to move your office and need to do it quickly, it would be a good idea to come up with a realistic timeline for your upcoming move.  The questions you need to answer are:

  • How much time do you have before you need to move out from your current location?
  • When you can access your new location?
  • Is there overlap and how much is it before you can access your new business premises and when you need to be out of the old one?

For an efficient, safe, and timely office relocation, hire a reliable moving company.

Nevertheless, you will have to make sure that you schedule enough time so you can get packed and sorted out before the moving day.

Do not forget to set up your moving budget

Determining your relocation budget is of great importance when you decide to relocate your business. Knowing the amount of money you can afford is a very important factor.  Once you set up your moving budget, you can think about the long distance movers Denver you can have or decide what furniture you will take with you to your new office and which you will leave behind. Thus, you will get some idea about how much time you will need for the entire moving process. Depending on whether you are moving your whole office or just a part and whether you will hire a full service or you will organize a move by yourself, you will know how much time your business relocation is going to take.

Complete the negotiations with the landlords

When relocating your business, it is good to know how long it will take. However, it all depends on how huge your business office is. Usually, it takes up to 12 months to relocate an average office space. On the other hand, if you have small business premises it might need you at least three months to relocate. And, medium to large office spaces might need up to one year or more to be fully relocated. Also, if you are planning to rent a new office space, you need to take into consideration the time you will need to complete the negotiation with the landlords. Do not be surprised to find out that you might need 3 to 6 months to negotiate all the terms and conditions with your landlords.

packing office items
Start packing as soon as you decide to move your business, and save some time.

If you can, pack in advance

To cut back the time and make your move efficient, you should think about packing in advance. If you have something in your office that can be stored for a while and that you do not need on a daily basis, do yourself a favor and pack them early. Get enough packing material ready and inform yourself about how to pack your items so you can get the job done properly. Get enough moving boxes, rolls of bubble wrap, moving blankets, and packing tape.  However, packing IT equipment requires a lot of time and knowledge, so it is better to leave that job to the professionals. IT technicians will know how to properly shut down the systems and disconnect devices. Also, let professional movers and packers pack computers, devices, and gadgets. Packing office equipment will take from one to three weeks.

Give yourself some extra time

Relocating business often takes longer than expected. There are a lot of unplanned things that can happen along the way. Therefore, you need to be ready for unexpected circumstances and obstacles. Moving your business can cause you a lot of frustrations, thus, when you start planning to move your business, make sure you give yourself some extra time.
