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

Should I Have a Moving Sale Before or After I Move?

Moving Sale Pros & Cons

Moving can be an emotional time and also cause you consider “cleaning house” a bit. There’s a  part during every move where you have to figure out the details for getting boxes and a truck from one area to another, but there is also the aspect of moving that touches wide swaths of your life.You start to evaluate everything you have by dimensions of space, finance, and even memories. Questions start pouring through your mind: “Do I like this?”  “When did I last touch this?” “Will this fit in my new space?” You might also be looking at things and remembering your young adulthood with nostalgic home items.

So now you have to a answer these questions in an honest order and make sure your belongings are suitable for your new space. Having a moving sale before a move can help clear up space, but your basic inventory should really dive into why you’re selling things. If you are selling to get money, make sure you know your market/items value. Try using apps like NextDoor, Letgo, and even Facebook to sell larger or more expensive pieces. Get on Craigslist well before your move date so you have the time to look at your competitors and price things appropriately. If you are selling to clear space and press reset on your belongings than a garage sale might be the way to go. Price things to sell, advertise your garage sale for a week or two in your neighborhood online and with posters. Be willing to negotiate on price, this might feel like you’re just giving things away and in a way you are… But at the end of the day, clearing out half a garage full of stuff means you don’t have to pack, label, and move that stuff.  The time and money you save on the front end might be worth it for you.

Another point to consider is if your items can fit into your new living space. This includes fitting through doors or windows, but also consider if your new space can accommodate your furniture in a way that won’t be overly cramped. Moving into a new place sometimes means you evaluate your style and figure out if you want to move forward with it. You may decide to change your decor all together in order have a new theme or motif. If this is the case, clear out as much of your current items prior to moving as you can!

A moving sale is a great way to move into a new stage of life. If you have items that no longer hold meaning or get much use, selling them prior to moving is the best time to get rid of these things. You should have a moving sale before you move for multiple reasons. You will free up space, cash, and even headspace. Think of it this way… if you have a sale and no one buys anything, you have not lost anything. You still have the stuff that needs to be boxed and moved.
