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

The ideal winter month for moving

We all know that you can’t always pick the time when you’re going to move house. Sometimes, it will be because of your job, school, or other reasons. It is only when you’re moving for a change of scenery and for personal reasons that you can pick your own moving date. In this case, you have two options – move during the busiest season or move in the off-season. Well, if you’ve at least researched a bit about moving companies Littleton CO, you’ll know that their off-season is during the fall and winter months. There are both pros and cons to moving at this time of the year, but there is still the ideal winter month for moving you can choose. Read on and find out what it is!

If you want to have a stress-free move and have your movers available at almost any date, you should move in the winter.

Is there the ideal winter month for moving at all?

All the pros and cons of moving in the off-season mainly have to do with other aspects of the relocation, not with the month you choose. Let’s talk about the pros first. The main benefit of hiring moving companies Denver during this time of year is that they won’t be as busy and you’ll have more freedom to pick your moving date. Moreover, they will have more time to focus on your relocation and you won’t have to schedule your team months in advance. Relocating in the winter months is more relaxed and less stressful. It won’t be as hectic as it would in the middle of the summer. 

On the other hand, one of the cons of winter relocation is that traffic can be bad around the holidays. Therefore, the ideal winter month for moving will definitely not be December, nor the end of November. Many people are on the road, visiting their family and relatives for the holidays. If you’re also moving, you can expect delays due to bad traffic. Now, if you are moving locally, this probably wouldn’t be an issue for you.

What about moving after New Year’s?

This is a bit of a different story. January and February are great contestants for the ideal winter month for moving. For instance, there are no holidays that can cause delays for your moving crew on the road. Secondly, the weather is slowly getting better and the days are longer – making it easier overall to move. If we had to choose, we would say that February is a better choice. Why? Well, because there may be some college students that are moving back into their dorms for the semester in January, and some may hire moving companies at the last minute.

February still belongs to the off-season but is far enough from the holidays. This way, you don’t have to worry about the traffic and the working hours of your movers. Additionally, you can choose to move in the middle of the month. This may be the best way to save money during your relocation as well! Most leases begin at the first of the month, and this is the time when people will hire moving services, making them more expensive due to demand. So, while there isn’t one specific good time to move, scheduling your relocation in January and February may be your best bet for your winter relocation overall!
