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

Best ways to commute in Denver

Commuting is a way of life nowadays. Rarely we can find a great job that is right next to our homes. Thus, we are forced to commute whether we like it or not. Having your Denver movers move you to your new home is just the start. You will need to figure out the best ways to commute in Denver and that is what you will find in this article! From carpooling, through rail&bus commutes, all the way to Vanpool and Schoolpool, we will be explaining various commute options. So, without further ado, let’s begin!

Best ways to commute in Denver – The list

Here is a handy little list of all the possible Denver commute options, for easy reference. We will be going into detail further down, but if all you need is a list, here it is:

  • Carpool
  • Vanpool
  • Schoolpool
  • Biking
  • Rail&bus
  • Various employer programs


This is one of the greatest and fastest ways to commute in Denver. If you have never considered carpooling, we implore you to do so. The benefits are numerous, from reduced stress to saving a lot of vehicle miles. In fact, with the Way to Go carpool program, more than 3,500 vehicle miles per year are saved. It is easier than ever to find people to carpool with!

One of the fastest and greatest ways to commute in Denver!

If all of that does not have you convinced, this is the greatest thing about carpool: free time. You will be able to do whatever you want on the occasions that you are not driving (and there should be plenty). Whether you want to sleep, listen to an audiobook, chat with others, or anything else that you want to do, you can do it while carpooling. It is perhaps the most enjoyable way to commute. If you don’t want to, that is understandable as well, and you have more options, such as:


Perhaps you want a bit more privacy in your commute. We asked commercial movers Denver what is their preferred commute method and they said “Vanpool”, without hesitation. The great thing about this Way to Go Vanpool program is that you will not need to deal with any repairs or maintenance. You won’t have to use bike racks or any fuel, either. And, finally, you can have a bit more privacy, depending on the van and your commute. An interesting fact about the Vanpool is that there are more than a hundred of them currently, constantly growing, and they save more than 22,000 vehicle miles each working day!

Best ways to commute in Denver – Schoolpool

While the yellow bus is available in most places, there are some that are simply not that lucky. With many more well-regarded schools, alongside great enrollment options, comes the need for more commute solutions. And that is what schoolpool aims to solve. Some of the best neighborhoods in Denver are using this commute option. There are currently over 18,000 students that are using this solution, with 150 schools that are supporting cleaner air by utilizing this method.

If your area is not serviced by the yellow bus, the schoolpool program might be your only option. It is well worth checking it out.


If you are living within five miles or so from your workplace, there is nothing better than commuting via bike. Biking is healthy, gets you to work faster and does not produce anything that pollutes our planet. Even if your workplace is farther away,  you can bike for five miles and get on a bus or a rail and you will still save both money and the planet. You can also check out some instagrammable places in Denver while you’re at it! There are also numerous programs, such as Bike to Work Day, where more than 30,000 people participate.

It is healthy and it helps the planet. If you can, it is always best to bike to work. Unless there is heavy precipitation, then you might want to leave your bike at home.

Biking is also a great idea!


If your commute is near rail lines, you should definitely consider this commute option. If not, there is always the bus. Denver has a really good infrastructure when it comes to this transportation option. With over nine thousand bus stops and 53 rail stops, you should be able to find a perfect route.

Commuting by rail is the most comfortable commute there is and that is a fact. Unless you are on a highly congested route, that is. The same goes for the bus, too. Again, the Way to Go program will help you make those plans. If your commute is particularly long, you can get back some time for yourself by having someone else drive you to your destination. After all, time is the most precious resource we have, even if it does not look that way always. Respect your time and always try to fill it with something meaningful.

Ways to commute in Denver – Employer programs

While not exactly something you can count on, there are various employer commute programs going on in Denver. One of these is the Go-Tober Challenge, which is a yearly competition between employers that have their employees try out different commute options in October. This is only one of the programs that are going on and several companies have their own commute programs and ideas.

The goal is to have a healthier environment and to allow everyone to arrive at work fresh and happy. For this, employers can go to great lengths but they need your help. Make sure to let the people at your workplace if you have any great ideas on how to improve the overall commute in Denver. Who knows, maybe your idea will become the next employer program!

Denver also has a lot of employer commute programs!

Denver has a lot of commute options and you are sure to find the perfect one for you if you but take some time to consider it. Sure, it is comfortable to drive your own car to work but it congests the roads, creates a lot more emissions than literally any other commute option. Don’t be selfish – get with the program!
