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 tips for car inspection before moving to Parker

Relocation can be a problem sometimes. Especially if you are bringing big and heavy things like your car. Transferring your car to Parker, for example, is often difficult and expensive. And can be a bigger problem than, let’s say, selling the car and then buying a new one afterward. If you, however, decide to move your car, regardless of the possible problems, make sure that you have professional moving companies Denver by your side. Their experience is crucial in this matter. And if you decide to go on your own, and drive yourself to your new home, you will need to make sure that your car is in perfect condition! You need your car safe and steady for your long trip. Never mess with the safety of you and your family! So here is how to do a car inspection before moving to Parker.

Oil change

You all know what can happen to the engine when the oil runs out. You can end up with expenses so big that your headache is going to last for a long time. And maybe there is a possibility that you will need an engine replacement. The whole engine! There are two things to memorize about oil. For engines that are driven under 150000km, an oil change should be done between 10000km-15000km. For engines that passed more than 150000, 10000km is the maximum range where you should replace the oil. And the other thing is that you need to check if your engine doesn’t spend oil. You can always check that on the long metal stick that can be pulled out. Memorize these two things. Range and volume! You can always check with moving services Denver if they can help you with your car transfer.

Tires and breaks

These two things are crucial when it comes to stopping! Your breaks are the most important thing in your car. Without them, you will probably die or kill somebody. If you don’t have good breaks on technical inspection, you will not pass! The computer will detect any problems with breaks. Even a little deviation will result in a failed test. Before a long distance move, recheck them! Good breaks with bad tires are also a disaster. All tires have their limit for driving. You should consider replacing them at about 50000-60000km. And they last for 5-6 years. After that, they lose their properties and you can slide when you break. You will lose a grip on the road. Movers Parker can do the relocation of your car if you are not ready to invest in your car and if you are moving only locally.

Filters and other liquids in your car

When you change oil, you should also change filters for oil, fuel, air suction, and air condition. If you don’t have enough, you can change the filter for air conditioning later. It is not crucial for the safety of the car. And you can change it by yourself, it is not hard. The oil filter changes every time you change the oil! The fuel and air filter should also change with the oil filter. Pay attention to the cooling liquid of the car. It can evaporate and cause overheating of your car which is not a good idea at all! Windshield liquid is not crucial for safety, but it will clean your windshield and you will see better! Do your car inspection before moving to Parker!

Electric cars

Electric cars require batteries. And batteries have their period of working. When years pass by, their capacity can lower. And this can cause you some trouble. If the capacity lowers, and you don’t have enough power sources on the road, it can result in stopping in the middle of nowhere! Then you need to call a towing service and it will result in a big money loss! Check your batteries with an expert. Replacement can be expensive, so you need to decide what is the best option for you. Selling, relocation by movers, or driving by yourself. And when it comes to your home, there are also things that you can move by yourself in a car that you are diving. But, for the big stuff, Denver small movers can help you relocate fast and stress-free.

Verify lights and electrical equipment are working

Driving at night without your lights is a disaster. You don’t see. And if the police catch you, you can end up with a ticket and they can exclude you from traffic. Before every move, check your lights. All of them. People forget to check their backlights and that can end up in a crash. People who are driving behind you don’t know if you are breaking or going left or right. And it takes maybe 2 minutes to check all your lights. Don’t be lazy and be responsible for yourself and others.

Another thing that people forget they have when doing a car inspection before moving to Parker

When it comes to long distance moving you should also check for these things:

  • Exhaust system – If they have holes of rust, your car will be loud and it will have visible smoke coming out of your car.
  • Steering and suspension – Every 10000km you should adjust your suspension and steering. Mechanics do that with a help of a machine.
  • Spark plugs – They last for a certain period. They need to be replaced regularly.
  • Summer/winter tires – Even if your tires are new, summer tires in the winter will behave like plastic on the road. You will slide.
  • Belts & hoses check – They can jam and cause you a headache. Don’t go on a road without this.

And don’t forget that you need to be responsible for your house also. Home movers Denver can help with that.

To Sum Up

A general inspection of your car is needed! Your car must be safe before the big trip and a car inspection before moving to Parker must be done! Don’t play with life. We gave some tips on what to do when you want to check your car. Breaks are the most important in your car. Your car engine can malfunction, but breaks must work at all times! They save lives!
