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

What Coloradoans Are Looking for When Buying a Home

At Homegrown, we get to know a lot of our clients pretty well by helping them move into their new home. Sometimes it’s upsizing for a growing family, other times it’s downsizing and moving to the mountains to retire. Lately we’ve been able to talk to some of our clients and realtor connections about what people around Denver are expecting when looking to purchase their next home. We hope that this blog helps whether you are thinking of listing your home for sale, or in the market for a house. Either way be sure to keep us in mind for your Colorado moving needs!

  1. Clean/Updated: Most people in and around Denver want a home that is updated and fairly move-in ready. Now that the real estate boom has started to level out some, people desire updated bathrooms and a kitchen, especially if the asking price is 400k or above. Many home buyers are not as interested in a “fixer upper” but want a nice home without having to imagine “what could be” too much.
  2. Staged/Ready: When listing your home, many buyers are expecting things to be professionally staged. Much of the Denver market has transitioned into a less lived-in looked and have things professional setup to optimize the look and feel of the home. A cluttered home with outdated furniture and decor could work against someone selling their home in Denver metro.
  3. First Week, Best Week: Even though Colorado real estate has tempered, the time homes are staying on the market has not. If a home is appropriately priced and updated it will likely have multiple offers within the first week and be under contract within 2 weeks. Although the inventory has improved for housing, the number of people moving here/home buyers has not fallen off. Make sure if you are listing your home to speak with a competent real estate agent to make sure you list well from the very start. If a house sits too long on the market, buyers will become wary and wonder if there are issues with the home.

Again, if you are looking sell your home or buy a home and need assistance moving around Denver – we’re here to help! Contact us at Homegrown Moving Company (a locally owned and operated Colorado business), for all of your moving needs. We handle moves both large and small and offer free quotes with no obligation!
