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

Preparing antique furniture for the move

Before packing make an inventory of all the vintage items you have. Take photos of the state of the antique furniture before you have it packed. This will be some sort of evidence in case of any damage. Also, if some of the pieces already have some slight damages or flaws, let the movers know. Take the measures of the door and windows at your new place. This way you can calculate if your antique pieces will be able to go through them. Alternative options for getting furniture in the house are more complicated and more expensive. Last but most important, get your antiques appraised by a qualified appraiser, so you know their total worth. Also, buy insurance for all your vintage items, you will need it.

Antique furniture packing

As mentioned already, we recommend leaving the whole packing and moving to professionals. You do not want to end up with your favorite piece damaged because you wanted a cheap move. If by any chance you need to go with DYI approach instead of hiring movers, remember the below:

  • careful disassemblingremove all detachable and removable parts such as drawers, legs, shelves and pack them separately
  • securing of the antiques – fix all loose elements, lock the drawers and doors where possible
  • proper protection – protection of the items during packing is usually done in three steps. First, protect the surface from dust, moisture, and dirt by using thin plastic wrap. Second, protect the items from shock and any vibrations by wrapping them in blankets or foam sheets. Third, a waterproof shell in which items will be transported, preferably a custom crate.


Whatever approach you decide on, make sure your beloved vintage furniture is safe and intact. Do not use the tape directly on furniture surfaces. It can leave sticky marks that will be hard to remove without damaging the surface. When thinking about how to move your antique furniture in Denver, think about the people who will one day inherit this vintage treasure.
