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

Why hire movers even if moving locally

You might think that a local relocation is much easier than a long-distance one. This statement is something that we hear a lot lately. Sadly, it is wrong. Both local and long-distance relocation can be equally hard depending on the complexity of the move. The only question is, should your hire movers even if moving locally? Let us provide an answer to this question and figure out if you should hire your local Colorado moving company even if you are moving just around the corner. Let’s take a look.

Movers will help you create a better moving plan

You can create your own moving plan as you would for any other relocation. But your movers Lakewood CO can help you create much better, safer, and more affordable ones. The efficiency of the whole moving project is a reason to hire movers even if moving locally. If you have no time to organize properly, this is the way to go. As you already know, movers have all the tools, knowledge, experience, and moving services required. So, no matter how hard your relocation is or what is the distance between the two locations, you should consider hiring professionals and make it all easier and quicker.

Easier packing is the reason to hire movers even if moving locally

Again, even if you are moving next door, you must pack accordingly. Yes, you can pack most of your things in cardboard boxes and garbage bags. But you still need laborers to haul everything over. This is where your movers can jump in and help out. And if you want to skip the packing process entirely, purchase packing services Denver CO and have them pack you within a couple of hours. You can pack and relocate in a single day. Amazing, right?

Physical labor is another reason to hire movers

As we already stipulated, moving is physical labor and this is another reason why you should hire professionals even if moving locally. Someone needs to cover this stage of the relocation even if you are hiring movers only to haul heavy furniture. Therefore, check online and find suitable local movers Denver that can take care of this part. Just make sure they are licensed and that they have all the equipment to cover this task properly.

Someone must carry all those heavy furniture pieces around. Might as well be a professional moving team.

Transporting items was always a problem no matter the distance

Ok, you must transport your items no matter the distance. You have only a few options there:

  • Use your personal vehicle.
  • Hire local movers.
  • Rent a truck and drive it yourself.

Although, if you decide on renting a moving truck, remember that you’ll need a permit to drive one along with all the knowledge on how to load it. Not to mention the knowledge about the road ahead and so on. So it is highly unlikely that anyone will pick this option. Hence, it all comes down to local movers and yourself. If you have a few items, use your personal vehicle, if not, hire movers and do not think about it anymore.

Now you know why you should consider and hire movers even if moving locally. The price of your relocation will scale with the complexity of the relocation and the mileage. So, you do not have to worry that you’ll spend more than you intended and that you could handle it all by yourself. Just remember, the nature of the relocation business is dangerous and delicate, so you better let it be covered by professionals. Good luck.
