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 you should buy moving boxes rather than borrow

When you’re moving you need to think about the materials you use for it. Sometimes it can be helpful to get your hands on anything. But what to do when you have more options? That’s why we want to discuss the importance of moving boxes today. We feel like there are a lot of full service moving companies Denver that have the experience, and think we are one of them. For that reason, here are some reasons why you should buy moving boxes rather than borrow them from your friends, neighbors, or family.

New moving boxes will keep your items clean

Certain items don’t tolerate dirty surroundings. So why would you risk it by using a borrowed box that has already been in use? For that reason, always aim to buy new moving boxes. They are fresh and clean and will keep your belongings in the same way. For example, the most long distance moving companies Denver will strongly advise you against borrowed moving boxes for bigger relocations. You don’t want any sensitive item to break because you didn’t want to invest a couple more dollars into a moving box. Dust can be a huge problem, especially for appliances and electronics.

Buy moving boxes rather than borrow for sanitary reasons

With the ongoing pandemic still going on, you don’t want to take on any additional risks. One of those is using other people’s items. The chances of you getting infected are low, however, if the virus is still fresh it could have an impact on you getting sick. Of course, another reason, according to our Denver movers, is that you want a moving box that wasn’t exposed to moisture and the harsh climate. With moving boxes that are already veterans, you can expect some insects to be in them. You don’t want those to enter your brand new and clean house.

New moving boxes will always be stronger than used ones

Moving boxes come in different shapes and sizes. And however your move might seem small or big, you want only the best and strongest moving boxes for your items. Even items like books that seem light can get very heavy when you put them on top of each other. That’s why when you get help with our packing services CO you can expect that only new moving boxes are used for your relocation. There’s no way that you should trust a moving box that had its own share of relocations.

Buy moving boxes rather than borrow in order to get more versatility

Not every moving box is equal. Depending on what you’re using it for, a moving box can have different uses. For example, when you’re putting your belongings in storage you might want a different and more stable moving box. The boxes that you can get for free on online groups just won’t do the trick in this case. Even if you’re borrowing moving boxes from a good friend the principle is always the same. A new moving box can just have so many more uses than an old and worn-out box.

When it’s time for relocation people start looking for moving boxes like it’s the gold rush. We fully understand why at times people can utilize used moving boxes and take them for other people. However, that’s not good for every situation. We hope that we convinced you that when you buy moving boxes rather than borrow as you’ll have a lot more options and stability. Whatever you decide to do with our advice we still wish you good luck with the move and hope everything goes well.
