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 pack a fine china collection?

Each time you move, there is a problem with all the fragile items you have. A constant fear of breaking something can only create stress and headaches. On top of it, you must prepare the whole moving plan, obtain all the packing materials, and find an adequate movers Parker CO to work with you on this moving project. But do not worry, you will manage and cover all steps required. We will help you with a small guide on how to pack a fine china collection and keep your fragile pieces safe during transport. Let’s take a look.

Create a plan to pack a fine china collection

Firstly you must figure out how many fragile pieces you possess and dedicate the batch of packing materials to it. So, inspect your entire home, especially the kitchen, and note down your china collection and all similar items. Some people have more than one set which can create further problems while packing and relocating. The more you have the higher the chance of damages. Therefore, note everything down on your moving checklist and once you have your numbers on paper, call your affordable movers Denver to assist you further. Pack fine china but have a moving team ready to relocate it.

Obtain all the packing supplies required

To pack a fine china collection you’ll need a proper set of packing supplies. We will list down a mandatory batch you must obtain. You will find it at the nearest hardware store, home depot, order online, or purchase from your movers. Note the following:

  • Cardboard boxes
  • Blister packs
  • Packing tape
  • Labels

If you want to skip the whole packing process, you should check moving services Denver available to you. You will find packing services quite lucrative for this situation. You can supervise the process while moving professionals handle the rest. It is affordable and safe above all.

Pack a fine china patiently

As we said earlier if you decided on purchasing packing services Denver CO then you won’t have to worry for a second. On the other hand, if you decide on packing alone, these are the steps you must take. Firstly inspect all your fragile pieces to ensure they are in good shape. You do not want to pack and break something yourself and later on blame your movers for it unnecessarily. Then, clean each piece individually and then wrap it in bubble wrap or packing paper.

Label each box adequately. Make everyone know what is inside.

Once the whole batch is ready, prepare your box by placing a cushion on the bottom. You can use bubble wrap, blankets, sheets, old clothing, Styrofoam, packing peanuts, you name it. And when your box is nicely tucked in and cushiony, start placing items inside. Once your box is full, fill the gaps between items with more cushion and close the box. Apply several layers of adhesive tape and label each box adequately. Repeat this process for each box and you are good to go. And remember, these boxes should contain only your china collection and similar fragile items. Do not mix stone, wood, and metal with your ceramics.

Moving insurance

Now when you are ready to move, you must take one final step. Communicate with your movers about the moving insurance they offer. You want to know what kind of coverage you can purchase. If you are not satisfied with the outcome, seek proper insurance from the insurance company. You must know that no matter how you pack, a chance for damages is always there. It is the nature of the moving industry and if you want to be compensated at least monetary, purchase the insurance and take a breather.

Ok, now you know how to pack a fine china collection. We are sure you would manage this one yourself. But why risk when you can have a proper guide with all the details involved. Hopefully, we managed to give you a few more ideas on how to protect and relocate your precious possessions safely. Good luck.
