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

Packing IT equipment 101

When moving, be careful and take care of everything. However, there are some items that are more important and sensitive than others. For that reason, it’s a good idea to keep them safe. There aren’t many moving companies in Denver area that can help you out. Especially if you’re packing IT equipment that can be crucial to your home or office. So make sure that you find good movers. Nevertheless, here are just some of the things to do before you start packing.

Take photos before packing your IT equipment

When packing you want to make sure what and in which condition you’re packing it in. For that reason, make sure that you snap a couple of photos before you start packing your IT devices. Above all, it can be really a great thing to have if movers transport your equipment. Of course, movers Aurora CO use only the safest methods, but mistakes happen to the best of us. Be ready for even the worst situation and have evidence in case of problems.

Get everything you need to pack

Before you can actually get to packing, make sure to have everything you need to start it. Obviously, that includes boxes, tape, packing paper, bubble wrap, and many other essential items. Of course, the best thing to have is the original boxes of your IT equipment. That’s what the guys from our packing services Denver will tell you 100% of the time. That’s because the company that made your equipment gave it a package that will protect it in the best possible way. If not you will have to get creative with the packing material.

Label when packing IT equipment

There’s no more obvious advice for moving than to have your boxes labeled correctly. Even if that seems logical, many people forget to do so. Unfortunately, when packing you need to have unpacking in mind. Even our last minute movers will make sure that all the moving boxes are labeled. That’s because when they are all in your home or office, it’s very difficult to find the things you need. By knowing where your IT equipment is, everything will be much easier.

Disconnect and unplug all devices

If you’re relocating a big office, there are miles of cables around. For that reason, be sure that everything is safely disconnected and unplugged. Make sure that you get help from your coworkers to see if everything is ready to go. On the other hand, you can always use BBB-approved movers to help you out. Unfortunately, when you don’t disconnect and unplug your devices there’s a big chance that they will get damaged or you’ll use your important data. Make sure to do everything according to protocol.

It’s time to relocate your home and office. Be careful on how you do it or some of your most expensive items might be in danger. For that reason, make sure that when packing IT equipment you follow all protocols. It’s better to be safe than sorry. From getting all the evidence, to carefully plugging everything out, it’s more difficult than it sounds. We wish you all the best of luck with your move, and we’re sure everything will be fine.
