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

Risks of moving on your own

It is a known fact that planning a move is not a simple task. There are many things that one has to do, from choosing the perfect moving date to organizing the packing schedule, to dealing with all the paperwork necessary to pull off such a massive task. One of the key elements of almost every move is hiring a reliable moving company such as Denver professional movers. The famous question regarding hiring movers is if it is actually necessary? There are certain arguments that could make it a valid choice, under the right circumstances. That is why we have decided to address the other side – the risks of moving on your own – so that you can make an informed choice. 

It is more like that your belongings will sustain damage

Moving companies exist for one very specific and clear reason – They are there to help you move. Still, people often underestimate just how useful movers like the Denver small movers are in the entire process. They are not just some random people that will come over and take your belongings through the doors. 

One of the risks of moving on your own is losing time and money
Professional movers know how to handle even the trickiest of items safely and you want your lovely sofa to stay in one piece

Movers are trained professionals that know how to handle different types of items in the safest way possible. They know how to handle all that bulky furniture in a safe way. One of the chief risks of moving on your own is that you are more likely to damage your belongings. Since that is not something you want, this is a very good reason why you should indeed hire movers. 

Accidents happen and people get hurt

Another aspect you need to consider is the safety of the people taking part in the moving process. If you decide that you want to move on your own, you will probably have to get some help. No matter the life experience, it is likely that all of you are amateurs in this line of work. In such situations, when inexperienced people are carrying large, heavy pieces of furniture, it is a distinct possibility that someone may get hurt. Damaging an item is one thing, but having your friend or yourself break your leg, or worse, while trying to take your large sofa down from the fifth floor is not something you really need. On the other hand, Denver residential movers know what they are getting into.

One of the biggest risks of moving on your own are lost time and money

Having local movers Denver handling your belongings is going to save you a lot of time. There are many things only you can take care of as the moving process progresses onwards. Having to pack and then transport all the belongings on your own is going to take a lot of time. The time that you probably won’t have enough of. However, besides losing precious time, you may also potentially lose money this way.

When moving without movers, it is possible that you or your friends may injure yourselves

It is quite likely, as we have explained above, that your belongings may sustain damage during the move. It is also quite possible that you may damage the property of your soon-to-be-ex landlord or someone else’s as you try to carry out your belongings, which can lead to greater costs than you would have to pay if you simply hired a moving company.
