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 family to bigger house

Moving your family to a bigger house is going to be a wonderful change in your life. Whether you are moving to a bigger house because your family is expanding. Or because you seek a change in lifestyle and more comfort which a bigger house provides. Or for many other benefits of living in a house of that size. But it can also have its downsides and the move prove to be challenging. This is why one of the most important things to do to make the move as easy as possible is to hire one of the experienced moving companies in Denver. They can help you with your move in more ways than you think and will make the move easy and safe.

Advantages and disadvantages of moving your family to a bigger home

There are some important advantages and disadvantages of moving your family to a bigger home. And you should have them in mind when deciding on the size of the house to which you will move.

There is much more room

Whether you need more space for your expanding family or a room for your home office. A room for your hobbies. Big guest room with enough space for guests to be comfortable. The possibilities are endless. And importantly, your children and pets will have more room and a bigger yard to play in too. Whichever way you look at it a bigger home will be more comfortable with more options for you to decide how to live in it and arrange everything.

A change of scenery and surroundings

This encompasses many things. With moving to a different location you will have a different neighborhood and different school systems available to you. Maybe the current neighborhood doesn’t fit in with your lifestyle anymore and a different one would be much more agreeable. Or you want better schools for your children, and for that location matters.

Moving your family to a bigger house means that you can work from home

As mentioned above, having a bigger home with more rooms you will be able to have a comfortable home office. And whether you are allowed to sometimes work from home at your current job. Or are planning on starting your own business. Either way, it will be much easier to work from a dedicated room for it rather than improvising at the kitchen table or on a couch with the laptop in your lap.

Everything will be more expensive

This is to be expected, but it is still something to keep in mind when deciding whether you want to move to a bigger house. Can you afford to pay higher property taxes, utility, and energy bills? Also the renovation and maintenance cost.

It takes more work to keep the house clean

Having more room in general, bigger bedrooms, living room, yard, and everything else is going to be wonderful. But at the same time, it takes much more time and work to keep it all clean. You have to figure out whether you and your family have enough time and energy to keep the home clean. Alternatively, you could hire a house cleaning service, but that would mean additional costs which you have to figure out whether you can afford or not.

What is your new home’s resale potential?

It is smart to have in consideration all the possibilities and to think ahead because life is unpredictable. You might at some point decide or have to move again for a variety of reasons. That is why it is important to have your home’s resale potential in mind and to make sure your home is well maintained.

Decide what to bring with you and what to scrap

Relocating your family to a bigger house is going to mean that a lot of things, like for example your furniture, might not fit in your new home. That is why it is important to decide what to bring with you and what to leave, what will fit in your new home, and what won’t, long ahead of the move. To make the move easier and so that you can have more time for other important things you can use experienced packing services Denver, CO to make the packing easier and quicker.
