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

Moving to Pitkin County

The famous town of Aspen is the Pitkin County seat. Aspen, located in what is also called the Roaring Fork Valley is one of the most affluent regions in Colorado and the United States. It is a part of a larger watershed in Pitkin Couty, namely called the Roaring Fork Watershed. The valley extends around 50 miles southeast of Aspen, then northwest to Glenwood Springs.

Aspen is the home to infamous ski lodges such as The Little Nell, Viceroy Snowmass, and The Gant Aspen. Aspen is very proud of their Aspen Music Festival and School founded in 1949. It is an annual classical music festival that showcases more than 400 classical recitals which last for eight weeks.

Another prosperous town in the Roaring Fork Valley, Basalt started out as a railroad town. Then, it eventually became a bedroom community for Aspen. Now, also a resort in its own right, Basalt houses excellent restaurants, boutiques, and so much more.

Further down the road, Carbondale is a thriving arts center which boasts its artistic heritage each year. The Carbondale Mountain Fair is one of the most prominent summer festivals in the valley. The locals hold this fair annually around Mount Sopris, the most impressive landmark of Carbondale. This 13,000-foot twin peak mountain was named after the explorer, Captain Richard Sopris.

With all the impressive communities throughout Pitkin County, moving to the Roaring Fork Valley will definitely expose you to a whole new experience. Choosing this corner of Colorado as your new home will open doors to overflowing historical and cultural adventures.

Moving to Summit County

One of the 17 original counties of Colorado, Summit County is home to municipalities such as Breckenridge, Frisco, Silverthorne, Dillion, Keystone and more. Moving to Summit County means that you are moving to a place that offers outdoor experiences like no other. 

Breckenridge is home to the Breckenridge Ski Resort, which opened in 1961. During the summer season, the area attracts outdoor adventurers who want to go hiking, fly-fishing, and boating. At the same time, this ski resort also holds an annual Breckenridge Festival of Film during September.

Frisco, like many other places in Colorado, is also famous for its proximity to ski resorts. Four major ski resorts are near Frisco, such as Copper Mountain, Breckenridge, Keystone, and Arapaho Basin. In addition, the area is also famous for its annual Frisco Colorado Barbecue Challenge, which started in 1993 and benefits area nonprofits.

Another growing town of Summit County is Silverthorne. The municipality of Silverthorne proves that their area is just as rich as the other cities in Summit County. Famous for their Ice Castles and outlet stores, Silverthorne has been a go-to place for adventurers as well as shoppers.

Moving to Eagle County

Eagle County was formed from the adjusted boundaries of Summit County in 1883 and is flourishing with tourism. If you are thinking of moving to Eagle County, there are lots of residential areas you can choose from within the Vail Valley with names like Beaver Creek, Arrowhead, Cordillera, Singletree, Homestake, and Wildridge. The towns of Vail, Avon, Edwards, Eagle, Gypsum, and Minturn are seeing exceptional growth.

Just as the Roaring Fork Valley has Aspen, Eagle County has Vail. It is the home of the Vail Ski Resort, the largest ski mountain in Colorado. Despite being popular during the winter, Vail is also an excellent destination for summer activities like guided hikes, horseback riding, mountain biking, carriage rides, and fishing. 

Avon is home to world-famous Beaver Creek Ski Resort and offers winter activities as well, such as ice skating, old-fashioned pond hockey on Nottingham Lake and other recreational adventures for tourists and locals alike.

Next town going west is actually an “unincorporated community”. Edwards is a census-designated area that has populated rapidly due to its close access to ski areas and more available longterm housing. It is also becoming a destination for outdoor activities such as zip lining, hiking, shopping, dining, and more.

Another exciting area to explore is the historic town of Eagle, the county seat of Eagle County. The city of Eagle is gaining even more popularity for its extensive trail system for mountain biking, hiking and trail running. Just like the other towns in Eagle County, this town is a hub for recreational activities.

Gypsum, named after the abundant mineral in the area, is also a must-see town. With new homes and restaurants filling the area, Gypsum offers water recreation along the lakeside of Sylvan Lake State Park.

Moving to Grand County

Just like Eagle County, the boundaries of Grand County were also carved from historic Summit County. Here, you can experience Colorado living in towns like Winter Park, Granby, Grand Lake, and Hot Sulphur Springs.

Winter Park is home to Winter Park Resort, a well-known ski resort in the area. It also boasts cross-country skiing opportunities like the Devil’s Thumb Ranch. During spring and summer, Winter Park is also popular for mountain biking, concerts, hiking, and fishing.

Granby, the most populous town in Grand County, features its own ski ranch which caters to families. While the Ski Granby Ranch is known for family-style skiing it also welcomes the ski adventurer. Meanwhile, there are abundant hiking trails in the nearby Arapaho National Forest.

Another place in Grand County, Grand Lake, although not an “official” town, is a charming destination surrounded by the Rocky Mountains and national forest. Grand County was named after this natural lake, which is also the largest and deepest lake in Colorado. You’ll never run out of activities here since the landscape offers exciting things such as hiking, fishing, sailboat gliding, and more.

Located between Granby and Kremmling, another town to watch for is Hot Sulphur Springs. Initially, a medicinal getaway and campground, this town is now gaining recognition for spa relaxation. It has several hot spring resorts and spas, including the popular, Hot Sulphur Springs Resort & Spa.


Whether you are moving to Pitkin County, Summit County, Eagle County, or Grand County, each area has remarkable things to offer. And while all of the towns within offer year-round mountain attractions and lifestyle, each is unique to its own natural treasures and historical Colorado significance.
