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 ultimate pre-move checklist

Moving is far from a simple process. It is not something you just decide to do one day and then complete the next. Furthermore, when moving is planned, planning is not limited simply to picking out new locations for a home and a moving company. There are just so many things you need to keep in mind in order to make a moving process a success. So many things have to be taken care of. To keep track of these you need a pre-move checklist. And, of course, if you want to be extra prepared, we are offering a piece of extra advice. We will give you tips an all the major things you need to address in your pre-moving planning.

From the beginning pre-move checklist – the inventory

When it comes to making a checklist, it matters not if you are in a crunch, just hiring some last minute movers Denver while at the same time listing immediately available apartments in NYC, or rather if you have everything planned out months ahead, you still need this crucial step in every pre-move checklist – the inventory. 

To check of inventory as done, you first need to take a look at every single possession you have (not just the ones you intend to move. It means you are providing a thorough look into what you own, and therefore, into what you need to be moved.

From the beginning pre-move checklist
Clothes go through this process of selection as well

For making inventory you can pick any method imaginable. You can categorize by room, or by size, by complexity or value… it matters not to us. However, it most certainly matters to you for categorizing you absolutely must. It just has to make sense to you. If you do this correctly, you will be able to quickly decide what items to take with you (and how to pack them, unpack them, load, etc.) and what to do with those you do not desire at your new home.

Speaking of… what should you do with those? With the things not wanted… Maybe moving them would just be too hard of a task to accomplish. Maybe their use has passed, or quite possibly, you simply tired of them. In any case, what to do?

What to do with the things you do not want to move

Let us layout your options for you. Once you decide on what you want to move, and what will you dispose of, you have several options as to how to dispose of those said items.

  • First and foremost, you can always just sell them on Craigslist or a yard sale. There is no reason why you should not make money of the items from your pre-move checklist inventory, as long they are in an operable state. Do you have something that will not be of use in your future environment? Something useful that you find no use anymore, or something easily fixable but you cannot be bothered? Possibly even something rather outdated. Whatever it is, someone is definitely willing to pay for it. 
  • Secondly, you can donate them. As long as we talk about even remotely useful and usable things, why not donate them to a charity. Furniture, clothes, home appliances – all of those things are been taken by multiple charities that are certain to have some reforestation near you. Why not give it to them? You would certainly help a good cause.
  • Speaking of a good cause, you should definitely do something about recycling or reusing your items. There are a lot of ways to help the fight to save the planet, and recycling is quite certainly one of them.
  • Finally, as your last resort, you can simply dispose of them as garbage. Sometimes, it is just that simple…

Inform everybody concerned

Before your apartment movers CO of choice pick you up and you embark upon your relocation, you should do a lot of things that go into the pre-move checklist. With that in mind, what is the next thing you have to check off it? Well, we would strongly recommend making some phone calls.

Let us elaborate. In our lives, we have a lot of routines and hobbies and other activities we indulge in. In order to have this, we all make some arrangements. Be it that you are having a membership in a library, or a gym, or are a monthly subscriber to mail service or anything else. Even discount cards for movies. Anything that is meant to make your life easier where you live… However, and we are sure you see where this is going – you are not going to live there for much longer. For this reason, you need to discontinue all of these on time, in order to save yourself expenses for services and other things you have no benefit from.

In this category, we would also emphasize that you should make calls to frequent associates, friends, and family. Everyone should know you are moving.

Picking the right moving company should be on your pre-move checklist

If you are hiring Denver movers, you better make sure you are picking out good ones. A moving company is a collective of people that will, quite literary, relocate your whole life. This is why you want to be in good hands.

5 stars
Get a well-reviewed company!

Luckily, there are ways to determine if you are in such hands. First and foremost, be sure that the company is communicative, affordable and legal. Furthermore, and of great importance – check their reviews. They will tell you all about how this company treats its clients and duties.

Plan the route

Finally, your pre-move checklist for Denver small movers relocation should also have a plan of the route. Not only the route you will take, but also of the accessibility within your building block/home.

Plan your move out!

You want the movers to have a clear way to reach you.

Say goodbye

There is one more thing to check off of the pre-move checklist. And that is to say goodbye. Maybe even throw a party! Have some fun!
