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

A simple guide to packing your furniture like a pro

When moving, you will have to take the majority of items with you. No matter how much you declutter, you will have some sort of moving inventory. Furniture is one of the items that many people dread moving. It is heavy, oddly shaped, and can easily damage the surroundings and injure the people that move it. Luckily, you can get some moving quotes in Denver and decide which movers can help you with your move. But even if you have professional help, you can benefit from learning a few tips on packing your furniture like a professional.

How should you be packing your furniture?

When you want to start preparing your furniture for moving, you need to start on time. Packing takes a long time if you want to do it correctly, and you should. Many furniture pieces are fragile and expensive. That is likely the reason why you are not leaving it behind, but giving it to some furniture movers Denver. Some of the best things you can do before starting to pack are:

  • Clean furniture
  • Disassemble what can be taken apart
  • Wrap in protective material

Clean furniture

Whatever you bring to your new home, it shouldn’t be dirty. Moving is a chance to start fresh, and your furniture should be the same. And apart, it is unlikely that you will clean your furniture post moving. Once some movers Evergreen CO drop you off, all you will want to do is relax. Depending on the material of your furniture, you should use a cleaner made for that material. You can easily damage your furniture if you use the wrong cleaner.

Disassemble furniture

The furniture is heavy but it can be taken apart. Everything that can be disassembled should be done. It will lessen the load and your furniture will be easier to move and maneuver. You should take the legs off of the tables and the drawers out of the dressers. All the pieces should be protected and labeled so that you know which ones go where. Some home movers Denver always do this, and you should also.

Wrap in protective material

Furniture is bulky, but that doesn’t mean that it is durable. Maybe they won’t break but they can sure get scratched. Those will diminish their price and make them look unattractive. Materials like bubble wrap and packing paper should be always used for this. No matter how many layers you decide to put, tape them with packing tape so that they don’t slide off.

Hiring professional packers in this situation doesn’t mean that you are wasting money

When you are packing your furniture, don’t be scared to spend money on hiring professional packers. Your furniture was an investment and you should invest in moving it. Apart you never know when something bad can happen, and that won’t happen with movers. It might seem like the more expensive option, but getting new furniture or getting damaged pieces repaired is much more troublesome and expensive than getting help. And sometimes even your strong friends can help. Good luck with preparing your furniture for moving!
