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 on moving from a house to an apartment

Moving from a house to an apartment in a great change in the lifestyle of many Americans will have to face at some point. It is not a bad thing by any stretch of the imagination and could be quite positive indeed, but it is also a challenging affair for those who are ill-prepared. Therefore, let’s make sure you are well prepared for the challenges and opportunities ahead of you.

Less space, but there are other advantages

When apartment movers CO relocate you to your new home, you might notice that space feels cramped. Houses are, on average, quite bigger. It is not the living quarters that you might find troubling, but the lack of storage room, as everything has to go somewhere and there is no basement or addict (storage units are of great help here). This is why downsizing before going is such a great idea. However, you will also have bigger opportunities in the city, such as education, better healthcare, and the greater job market. 

Downsizing before moving from a house to an apartment

Residential moving company Denver might help you move whatever your load is, but downsizing before moving to a smaller housing unit is still a good idea. Be sure to take inventory of the things you have and the items you wish to throw away.

How small can your home get?

When reviewing your list, you should consider what items are throwaways and what to do with them. You have several options.

  • First and foremost, you can always store them. There is no reason to throw them away. Even if you are not using something much, it might be of use later.
  • If for whatever reason, the possession is deemed irredeemably useless, then it is best to throw them away before moving from a house to an apartment. Just remember that most of the items can be, in some form, recycled. Be sure to try!
  • You can also sell them online or in a garage sale. It will both get rid of them and earn you a pretty penny.
  • Alternatively, you can also donate the items. Be it furniture, home appliances, instruments – everything is needed in one charity or the other…

Hiring professional movers

Finally, it is very important that you hire good, professional movers. This is because, when moving into an apartment, you might need some additional services that only well equipped and trained moving companies are ready to provide. These include things like home appliance installation and furniture assembly.

Be sure to hire good apartment movers

Having trouble finding out what companies are truly reliable movers? Be sure to check their Yelp, Google or Facebook reviews. That is the best way to see what kind of movers they really are.

So, when are you moving?

All of that said, it is time for you to start planning. Moving from a house to an apartment takes time to plan so you should start as soon as possible. Best of luck and remember the advantages as well as the pitfalls!
