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

How to hang artwork on glass walls

First of all, you want to make sure that you are moving expensive artwork safely to your new home, Westminster, CO movers can help you with that. It might seem risky and dangerous to hang artwork on a glass wall. Since you can’t just take a hammer and a nail and do it. But there are ways you can do it easily.

Using Adhesive hooks on your glass walls

Adhesive hooks are a great solution if you don’t want to make any permanent changes to your walls. But they do have their limits, you cannot use them for heavier artworks. First, prepare the wall by cleaning it thoroughly with a good glass cleaner. Then make sure that it is completely dry, which is very important. Then hold the painting against the wall and mark the top of the frame with a dry erase marker. Now measure the distance between the hook on the back of the artwork and the top of the frame. Mark that spot on the wall so that you can position your artwork easily.

Hire professionals to do it for you

You can hire a company that provides a professional art installation and picture hanging service. You can choose from a variety of methods, they can drill holes into the walls and put hooks in to hang your artworks.

That way the art can hang in front of the wall without doing any damage to it. Of course, it is all your choice and it all depends on what kind of aesthetic you desire.

Clean the walls properly without damaging them

Once you move into a house with glass walls you will realize that your walls require more than just regular window cleaner. It’s best to start with water and soap, and then use a commercial strength window cleaner. It is also good to have professional window maintenance come at least twice a year to clean windows, debris and check all the windows. Taking good care of your windows will make them last longer and save you money in the long run.

Things to avoid:

  • Using the hose – hose water is hard and glass can absorb the mineral deposits
  • Washing them in direct sunlight – that is the time when windows are very porous
  • Keep the sprinklers away – same as with using the hose, the glass would absorb a lot of the mineral deposits

Give it away to family, friends, and neighbors

Use craigslist

Call waste management
