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 for Moving House with a Large Family

Moving is already a complex and demanding thing. But if you are moving house with a large family, then it becomes a real challenge. If you are about to hire some of the long distance moving companies Denver, this move might just become a bit easier. Even with the help of a professional company, you will still need a lot of time to prepare and do things on your own. If, for example, a person moving alone or with a spouse needs a month’s worth of preparation for the move, with a large family you can count on two or three times more. Especially if the majority of your family are kids. Then you will need to do most of their work unless they are in their early teens and can be of immense help.

First steps toward planning a house moving with a large family

Since you need to plan much ahead, one of the first things would be to find the best residential movers Denver can offer.  Once done with that part, start organizing yourself and your family. Make an inventory list, it will be of much help once you arrive at your new home. Thing considered as a must is packing an essential box. Think of all the things you will need for you and your kids while on the way. From chargers, laptops, and tablets to coloring books and snacks. You do not want this moving house with a large family to turn into a nightmare, trust us.

Understanding the stress that awaits

When moving house with a large family you must understand that you will be under a great amount of pressure. This will produce both physical and psychological stress. You can reduce physical stress by starting the whole process ahead of time and involving all family members into helping. With psychological stress, there are other systems to either avoid it or keep it under control. Working as a team and having an incredible amount of solidarity is one way towards the stress-free move.

Involving family members in the process

Start by engaging kids in the packing process as much as possible. When moving house with a large family, it is crucial you all function as one. There will probably be resistance to this whole moving idea, but you need to stay strong. Keep your kids in the loop and try to make this process fun for them. You and your spouse can take care of packing the fragile items you want to be kept undamaged. Also, you should take care of moving your most valuable items. Clothes and toys can be packed by kids if they have grown enough. Make a coloring code or invent some other system to keep them occupied and entertained.

Declutter relentlessly when planning a house move with a large family

There are so many things you have collected over the years, you surely do not need to bring them all with you. Take one large box or more than one and put in there all the things that you plan leaving behind. You can decide later what to do with it, but selling or donating are the best ways to go. The less you pack, the fewer boxes you’ll need and less time will be spent on packing.
