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

That is why planning the first day after the move is important. And to make it less stressful and exhausting, you can always hire Denver movers, to make sure that the packing and the moving process does not take all of your energy and positive vibes.

Get to know your new hometown

A lot of people leave this part of the relocation to be the last. This is the most common mistake you can make when relocating. You need to do a little research about Denver, even if you have been there as a tourist. It is not the same visiting that place once or twice and living there. To get to know Denver more, you can search about the costs of living here, how are they different from Lakewood, and the ways of living. After you have checked all of these important things, you can hire some of the best residential movers Denver has to offer.

For instance, speaking of the costs of living, Denver is a little above the national average. But this is actually not so bad. There are tons of opportunities here. Lakewood is a great place, but Denver can provide you with more opportunities and chances for a new job or to expand a business.

When it comes to school and educational systems, Denver has some great public schools that your kids will enjoy. There are tons of activities, both in school and after classes. People here are friendly and your kid will feel accepted no matter what age you move with him there. If this is everything you have been searching for someplace, you should not hesitate and hire some of the best local movers Denver has, and do it as soon as possible.

Things you can do after Lakewood to Denver move

As much as the moving process can be hard, the first day after the move does not have to be if you are well organized and you have made some plans. We all know how tired you must be, but if you have done some work before moving, your first day after will be fun. The things some of the apartment movers Denver will recommend you to do is to inspect your home, clean it from top to bottom, and not hurry with the unpacking process. Especially if you have found some activities you can do after the move.

Check your new home first

After moving to your new home you should inspect it. Make sure you are going through the inspection during the day. It is more visible and you will be able to contact whoever you are in need of. See if the utility work. If you have paid for everything before the relocation you need to have papers that show it. If for some reason water, gas, or electricity does not work, make sure you contact the landowner of the person in charge. You should also check if there is some damage to the walls or furniture if you have bought or rented a furnished place. But, if you like to think about people as nice and understanding, the person you got your house from will leave no damage behind. At the end of the inspection, do not forget to change the locks.

A clean home is a happy home

After you have done inspecting your new home it is time to clean it. Think about doing it before and after the unpacking process. The reason to do it before the unpacking process is simple. You want all the surfaces to be clean before you put your items on them. After unpacking is important too because there might be some dirt and dust that got on your moving boxes during the transportation.

Clean the bathroom first

The best rule you can find is to clean from top to bottom. All the dust will fall down and you will collect it in the end. Floors should be cleaned last. And while you are cleaning it, you can see where will certain items find their place in your new home.

How to unpack after Lakewood to Denver move?

Now when everything is clean, you can start unpacking. Keep in mind that you do not have to unpack instantly. You can unpack only the things that are necessary for your first night in your new home. However, if you really want to finish this moving process, you should unpack room by room. It will be easier if you have packed in the same way. The bathroom and kitchen are the number one room that needs to be settled. You are using these rooms the most, therefore, stuff in there must be available all the time.

On the other hand, if you decide on unpacking just the boxes that you are in need of, you can sit down and make a plan and a list of the items you will need in your new home. Alternatively, you can find movers Lakewood CO that will do this task for you.

Use this shopping time to get the know the neighborhood

Even though you have done your research about Denver, you cannot get to know your neighborhood until you take a walk. So this list you have made for new items that need to be bought you can use as an excuse for a long walk and getting to know the stores you have. You might also meet new people here, by using them for directions or some great restaurants. Denver is a great place for people of all ages and you will have no trouble finding someone who suits you.
