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 stress free cross country move with kids

Did you know that when moving with kids, it does not have to be all stress and hardship? It will surely be slower and demand more time, but if you prepare well, you will end up with stress-free cross country move with kids. Whether you decide to go all DIY or hire cross country movers Denver, the rules of having a stress-free move are the same. In the next few paragraphs, we will try and summarize the very best tips for moving carefree with kids.

Plan for the trip to be longer than usual

Moving preparations take time. If you are moving locally or within the same state, two months should be enough to prepare. But if you are moving cross country, and with kids, you should start preparing at least three months ahead. Four would be ideal if you can afford to spend that much time on preparations. If you have small kids, toddlers, that probably will not remember the move, it is best to book a flight to your new destination. But if you have kids over 3 years, make the trip to the new home memorable. Plan for several days of just traveling. Make a detailed plan for all the stops along the way. While the movers from Homegrown Moving and Storage Company Colorado are transporting all of your things, you can drive through the country, creating memories that your kids will value once they grow up.

For stress-free cross country move with kids, keep them away during prep time

The packing phase is the most important and exhausting one. If your kids are not of the age where they can help out with the move, you need to keep them away. You do not want to have them around things where they can accidentally hurt themselves. Your moving insurance will not cover that. Also, little kids tend to make a mess in a minute out of everything. This is why you need to avoid it if you want this cross country move to be stress-free. While packing and having movers disassemble your furniture, ask for help. It can be your friends or members of the family. Whoever can look out for the kids while you pack, will be appreciated.

Make a first aid kit for traveling

By this, we do not mean only the stuff you would usually have in your first aid kit. Under this, we mean more like a survival kit, in the form of a box or a small suitcase, full of stuff you need for the road. If you plan on long driving and days of travel, you will need spare clothes for both you and the kids. You will definitely need things like toothpaste and brushes, and some other stuff for hygiene. Kids will require more things than you, of course. For them, make sure to bring snacks, so you do not end up stopping each time someone is hungry. Also bring some toys, children books, and other entertainment materials to make this trip easier.

The above were only some of the tips on how to carry on the cross country move with kids, with little or no stress at all. As you can see, it is quite possible. Think of this move as some sort of a challenge or a game, and make your kids feel the same. Enjoy the moments you will spend together on your road trip. Kids do not like changes, especially in certain years of age. This is why it is really important to make this as fun as possible for them. And while they are having fun, why wouldn’t you have it as well!
