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

Tips and trick for packing your home in a day

Packing is one of the parts of the moving process that can last the longest. After all, you need to pack everything that you own into boxes and other containers. And people tend to own quite a lot of stuff when it comes down to it. That is why small movers CO offer their packing services for any kind of move. Usually, packing is something that people that are moving do by themselves. There are a few reasons for it but the main one is that they know exactly which items require additional care. If you need to finish everything in a day, however, it becomes a bit tricky. Packing your home in a day can be a daunting prospect and, admittedly, a hard one as well. But we will see to help you with that! So, let’s start with the question:

Is Packing Your Home In a Day Possible?

The short answer is, it depends. While it is definitely possible for most of the households to finish packing in just one day, it is impossible for an overwhelming amount of items. But we will presume that the quantity of items is not over the limit. You will need to follow the steps that are in the list below. You don’t need to do them in the exact order that is below, apart from getting the packing supplies first.

Start early! Pack books and seasonal items in advance!

Packing Your Home In A Day – Get Packing Supplies

The first thing that you need to do is obtain packing materials. If you want to pack everything in a day, you need to have all of the supplies on hand. Obtaining the necessary materials such as moving boxes, packing tape, bubble packs, cloth wraps, etc. on the same day that you reserve for packing is more or less impossible. That is why you need to do your obtaining well before the packing day comes. Some tips about these materials include obtaining them for free or really cheap. The more time you give to yourself to obtain these items, the less money you will need to provide.

You are not the only one that is moving and requiring packing materials. There are many people that recently moved into your area and have a lot of these materials on hand, not knowing what to do with them. You need to see to connect with these people and see what kind of deal you can get. Usually, if they are your neighbors, you can get these materials for free as they would otherwise simply throw them in the trash. But even if you are looking for these materials online you can expect a much better price than if you go to a shop and buy brand new ones.

Start Early And Pack Seasonal Items Ahead

An early start is absolutely essential when you are packing your home in a day. If you are not an early bird then you can’t really accomplish everything in a single day.  If you absolutely can’t start early and your move needs to be done in a day then you might enlist some help from last minute movers Denver. With their help, everything can be done in a day! But let’s presume that you listen to reason and start your packing day as early as possible.

Your seasonal items, as in those items that you are not currently in season such as swimwear in winter or snow jackets in summer should have been packed already. I understand that this might not be “packing in a day” after all, but these items really should have been packed way before you get to pack in a day. You will not be using them at all and there is no reason whatsoever that they are not in a moving box already.

Pack Room By Room

The organization is the key when you need to pack in a day.  Divide your work into as many rooms as you have and do them one by one. This will serve several purposes. First, you will have a sense of achievement and accomplishment after every room, something that will have you working in top condition throughout the day. Second, you will organize everything at the same time, making your unpacking that much easier. And finally, packing room by room will have you focused on one thing at a time, without any distractions.

Packing Your Home In A Day – Start With Kitchen

The best place to start with when you want to pack in a day is the kitchen. The reason for this is that this is part of the packing process that is most time-consuming. There are all these big appliances and numerous dishes, plates and kitchen utensils that you need to pack. It will take a lot of time and effort and this is something that is best finished with way before the moving day actually comes.

Declutter While You Are Packing

While you are packing your things, there will be a lot of things that you actually do not need anymore. Packing is the perfect opportunity to declutter your house and you need to take it. Don’t overdo it, though, as you might spend more time considering if your old almanac is worth keeping or not. Make two piles for the clutter, “throwaway” and “maybe”. You pack the rest.

Hire Professional Mover

But honestly, the best thing to do when you get to packing your home in a day is to hire a professional moving company. Their packing services will save you a lot of time, effort and stress. You can then focus on other aspects of the moving process. There are many great reasons why there are thousands of moving companies around. Moving is simply a lot easier with them.
