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

Summer move to Longmont

Planning a summer move to Longmont can be quite complicated. Or it can be easy. It all depends on the amount of knowledge that you possess and the Longmont movers that you hire. The summer is the prime moving season and there are a lot of people that choose to move within its months. This does mean that there are some additional considerations when it comes to booking movers. But, as with more or less everything else in life, preparation is key. This article will provide you with the necessary moving knowledge that you will need for this endeavor.

How to prepare for your summer move to Longmont?

Here is a shortlist of the most important things to consider when moving to Longmont:

  • Start planning as soon as you can
  • Book a professional moving company well in advance
  • Gather moving boxes and necessary packing materials for your summer move to Longmont
  • Ask your friends and family for help
  • Avoid moving injuries  – Wear proper clothes, hydrate and take breaks
Organize your time and create a moving checklist before the move!

Start planning as soon as you can

This is really important. As soon as you know that you will need to move, you will want to start planning. Plans like these take time to form and there are many things that depend on each other. You will need as much time as you can have. You may want to research local movers CO, you may want to see which utility company you want to go with, and about a million other little things. All of this takes time. And you don’t really want to put more pressure on yourself than you need to. That is why you want to start early. If you don’t procrastinate overmuch, you will have a comfortable time span to plan everything in. If you don’t need to move within a week, that is.

Book a professional moving company well in advance

Professional moving companies are busiest in the summer. If you wait on hiring great movers, such as Homegrown Moving and Storage Company Colorado, you may not be able to choose the exact moving date that you wish. The best thing that you can do is to make the call as soon as you can. That is why you need to settle on a moving company as soon as possible. Unless you don’t really care about the exact date, in which case you will go with whichever date is available. But for the most part, the date is kind of important.

Contact your professional mover and schedule an appointment.

Gather moving boxes and necessary packing materials for your summer move to Longmont

You will need containers in which to transport your belongings. Usually, this is the job for cardboard moving boxes. You can find these at stores that sell them but a savvy person will want to get them on the cheap, or even for free. The way to do this is to visit your local stores, preferably ones you do your shopping in, and ask for some boxes. They may not have some right at that moment but if you wait a bit and ask nicely, you will be able to obtain all the moving boxes that you need.

When it comes to packing materials, it is a bit trickier to get them on the cheap. If you have time and energy, you can try and search for people in the area that have recently moved. Sites like Craigslist are especially useful in this regard. People usually buy more than they need and they are left with items that they will not use anymore. You can buy these materials from such people. It involves searching, both online and offline, and a bit of “legwork”. But it is the best way to obtain such materials. Whatever you can’t get that way, simply buy from a shop.

Ask your friends and family for help

You are not in this world alone. Your family and friends will be glad to help you with your relocation. They are a part of your life and they will want to help you in this critical moment. In fact, some people consider not asking for help to be rude. But for the most part, if you ask a friend for help in relocation, they will want to do it. Having multiple people helping with the relocation will make it easier to avoid moving injuries, as well. Just make sure that you present a great atmosphere. Relocations can be a ton of fun if approached correctly. Play some music, laugh and joke around and it will all be over with before you know it.

Think of it as spending quality time with your friends, while having a common goal. You deepen the bonds between you with every such situation. Think of that next time you think “I don’t really want to bother anyone”. Remember, you are not bothering anyone, you are allowing them to help, which they want to do in the first place.

Call your friends and ask them to help you with your relocation.

Avoid moving injuries during your summer move to Longmont – Wear proper clothes, hydrate and take breaks

Summer relocations come with some dangers. The temperatures may be overly hot which can dehydrate your body quite fast. It is really important to properly hydrate when you are working in the summer. You also need to consider what kind of clothes you wish to wear. Normally, you will want clothing that allows your body to breathe, which will not get caught in things and which is comfortable for you to move in. Additionally, while you may not feel overly tired after an hour or two of working, take a break anyway. Allow your body some time to recuperate with a cold drink and something to snack on.

All in all, proper preparation and great company is what will make your summer move to Longmont as easy and as memorable as possible. Make sure to keep yourself and your family safe, hire the best professional movers you can find, and try to have a good time!
