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 to do the first week after moving to Westminster, CO

Moving to a new home is always a big moment in a person’s life. It is a chance to start anew, and this is even more apparent when you move to another town or a city. As it is such an important moment, it is sometimes easy to get lost in it and to forget about the important things that need to be done around the actual moving part of your relocation. Most of the time, people talk about all the pre-move things that you should do, such as hiring full service moving companies Denver offers, but not many people talk about the post-move tasks. That is why we have made this shortlist of the key things that you should do during the first week after moving to Westminster, CO, or (anywhere else). So, let us begin. 

Check all the boxes

Practically the first thing that you need to do right after you come to your new home is to start inspecting all the boxes. Hopefully, you have created a quality inventory list, because it will be very useful here. If something has gotten lost or damaged, the sooner you realize it, the greater the chances to fix it. This is especially important as not every moving company is as forthcoming as Westminster CO movers, and those other companies may get dodgy if you do not confront them right away, but at a later date.

Unpack during the first week after moving

The natural following (and overlapping) step after checking all the boxes is to start unpacking. Whether you are relocating to Denver or somewhere else, this is really important. It is a proven fact that many people, if they postpone this step, tend to postpone it even further. So, start unpacking right away.

How to unpack properly

If you have a lot of belongings, give yourself daily goals to hit. Whether you will unpack one room per day, or more or less, it is important to do it during the first week after moving. Once you unpack, you will settle into your new home much more quickly. Of course, if you hired professional packing services CO, unpacking will be much easier.

Childproofing your new home is super important, so be quick about it

Make your home safe for your children

Moving to a new home can be challenging in many ways, even for adults. However, it is more challenging for kids in many ways. One of them is the unknown layout of the new home. This can be especially tricky for smaller kids. That is why it is important to childproof your home (and/or babyproof) as soon as possible. Start identifying the potential hazards for them as soon as you can make the time. First, start at their room and then move on from there. Prioritize the parts of the home where they will spend the most time and the paths between them. Once you are done with this, you can start settling in your new home for real.
