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

Tips for organizing your home after retirement

Moving out is a big change for everyone, especially if you’re retired. Planning your move, packing and organization are difficult tasks, and you might find yourself needing help and advice for your relocation. However, you are in luck, for we are one of the best full service Denver moving companies, and our tips for organizing your home after retirement will definitely help you feel less stressed about this upcoming change and be more prepared to pack and organize.

Choose A Location For Your Home After Retirement

After retirement, you will realize that you have plenty of free time on your hands. This is why you want to carefully choose a location to move to.

Carefully choose where you want your home to be after retirement!

You have to ask yourself the following questions 

  • How will you spend your free time after retiring? Without a job, you might find yourself picking up new hobbies and interests, so you’ll want to move to a place where you can explore more options to spend time.
  • Do you want to live alone in a remote place or in a community? Keep in mind that retirement means you will have to find different ways to make connections with people, and also remember that you are most likely going to need help and aid from other people, whether it’s your family or neighbors. Also, an important factor is a distance from the nearest hospital, as well as stores and other points of interest, such as stores.
  • Do you want to move into a smaller home? A smaller home means fewer expenses, fewer bills, less maintenance, but it also means less space. You should also consider the possibility of your new home having a homeowner association, which would mean additional fees.
  • Last but not least, what does your ideal home after retiring look like? Maybe you are a lover of nature, you have pets or plan on keeping them, or perhaps you prefer colder or warmer climates because of health issues- all of these things are small but important details to make your life after retirement more enjoyable.  

A good choice for your upcoming relocation could be Broomfield: there are plenty of recreation facilities, trails connecting beautiful sights of nature and overall plenty of senior services which are surely going to be helpful during your retirement days. Homegrown Moving and Storage’s movers in Broomfield CO will more than gladly help you with organizing your upcoming move and home.

Organizing your home after retirement takes a lot of preparation and planning.

Speaking of which, there is also an official Broomfield website where you can find all the information and news you need before and after considering moving there. Wherever you’re planning to move after retirement, you should search for the state’s official web page to check for any useful information that can help during your relocation.

Pack Your Home For Relocating After Retirement

Once you have chosen your location and moving company, you are ready to start packing. Clothes, fine china, furniture, and paperwork are just some items you will bring to your new home. However, packing is very overwhelming and takes a lot of patience and planning. Rest assured, our company offers packing services Denver which will keep your belongings safe and protected from damage with our high-quality packing materials and supplies.

How To Organize Your Home If You Have Too Many Items?

However, if you feel like doing something yourself, decluttering is always useful, whether you’re moving or not. Decluttering, however, is not an easy process, either. You will often find things that make you feel sentimental and remind you of people or events in your life. It is hard to let go of these things, but there is a way to make the decision. You should ask yourself if you’ll use them in your new home and if you want them taking up space. To declutter, you will need quite a lot of time. It can take a couple of hours or days before finally deciding that you’re done. The newfound storage space might tempt you to keep some discarded items, but do not let them get to you.

If you really don’t want to throw away the things you put aside, you may sell them or give them to charity, or even better, give them to your family members as gifts or mementos. That way, they will stay in the family, even though they are not with you after retirement. By decluttering, you are also making the organization of your future retirement home much easier. The more things you get rid of, the more storage space you will have for new stuff. Fewer items mean easier home organizing.

Tips For Organizing Your Home To Make It Age-Friendly

You will agree that living as a young person and living as a senior is not the same. As you grow older, you will have different needs, so you want to make sure that the home you are moving to is safe for you and anyone who might live with you.

Organize Your Home In A Safe Way

At some point, you might find that it’s becoming difficult for you to move too much. Make sure that the things you need the most are placed in easy-to-reach places. You don’t want to risk your health trying to reach stuff in difficult-to-reach places. Avoid storing them in low places that will need you to bend over and crouch. High places that force you to stretch should also be avoided. Avoiding injury and health complications during retirement should be one of your top priorities, and properly placing and organizing your belongings can help.

Reconsider Your Retirement Home

You might want to move to a bigger house with more rooms. This should be reconsidered if the house in question has stairways. Stairs might turn out to be problematic in your new home. You will find it increasingly difficult to move on normal terrain, let alone stairs. Not to mention that you can expect future fees for making adaptations and changes to make your home more age-friendly. Another thing to consider is garage placement. You want your garage to be next to the front door for easier access and item transport. Remember that you are trying to make a home that will meet your needs after retirement and that you should organize it as such.

We know how difficult moving and organizing your home can be, especially in your retirement days. It is difficult for younger people and especially difficult for retirees. With our moving services Denver, we can help make your life after retirement easier. After reading our tips for organizing your home after retirement, your move will go smoothly.
