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

Let’s say over the years while you were making your home gym you accumulated many different types of equipment and machines. And now after you decided to move those same things are causing you headaches. Gym equipment can be quite heavy as well as easy to damage. Not to mention that much of it is also quite expensive. So let’s say you decided to move and contacted movers Aurora CO. You picked out the date and now all that’s left to do is pack! But before you even try to pack and relocate your home gym equipment in Aurora you should make a plan. That plan should consist of two important parts.

When cleaning the gym equipment make sure you pay more attention to the ones you use on daily basis.

Packing gym equipment

It’s important you start packing your gym equipment on time! Don’t wait until the last moment and rush it. Be responsible with your time. The packing plan should also have some checkpoints.

  1. Cleaning
  2. Free weights
  3. Elliptical
  4. Treadmill


Before you attempt to pack and move your gym in Aurora cleaning is a must! There are many things to consider. From sweating while training to the usual dust that accumulates over time. And all of these are potential health hazards. So why would you risk bringing any bacteria into your new home, or exposing your home movers Denver to them? So pick up your cleaning supplies and a cloth and clean everything!

Free weights

After cleaning the actually packing can start. Usually, every gym has a lot of free weights lying around. In order to pack them you will need boxes. Although you can pick any type of box, in order to safely move heavy weights a plastic container or hard cardboard box is recommended. Also, get a lot of bubble wrap or paper wrap.

  • All of your weights should be wrapped tightly in order to be safe during the move.
  • Don’t overload a box. It’s best to have many smaller boxes than one big one. This way the weights will be secured in place and the boxes will be easier to move.
  • Use tape to make sure the box doesn’t brake.

Pack and relocate your home gym equipment in Aurora carefully. But before you do so you can enjoy one last training session in this home.


In order to pack and move your home gym equipment in Aurora sometimes taking apart your equipment will be mandatory. And this happens to be the case for an Elliptical. Due to its shape, it is hard to move in one piece. So start by unscrewing the nuts and bolts and slowly removing the moving legs and pedals. Get a Ziplock bag or jar to keep all of the small parts in. As for the big parts, wrap them in moving blankets and secure them with tape.


When you think of a piece of equipment usually found in most homes, a treadmill pops to mind. That means most people have trouble moving it safely. But don’t worry it’s not hard if you know the steps.

  • Make sure everything is cleaned
  • Disconnect all the wires from the wall(unplug them)
  • Fold your treadmill up, and secure it in place
  • While the treadmill is still folded use moving blankets to wrap around it and secure them with tape

Moving gym equipment

The next step after packing is naturally moving. So it’s no surprise that in order for you to pack and move your home gym equipment in Aurora a moving guide is also needed. So it is only natural that this too needs a plan. Although you can always contact packing services Denver CO has in order to get the so much-needed help, there are still ways to do it alone or with the help of friends.

  1. Start light
  2. Free weights
  3. Elliptical
  4. Treadmill

Start light

How will you start the packing process? Well, you should start it lightly. Meaning that the first things you should move are your yoga mats, gym towels, and other types of things commonly found in gyms.

Free weights

Make sure that you place the weight boxes on the bottom of the moving truck. Due to their weight, they can be a risk if placed higher up. There is a chance of them crushing other boxes or falling.

Although there are different types of gym equipment all of them should be handled with care.


After carefully taking it apart you should be capable to carry the parts of the elliptical into the moving truck all by yourself. While you do that make sure to check if everything is wrapped properly and secured. After placing everything in the truck one more step is left. Making sure there is no room for the Elliptical and its parts to move. After earning into your new home all that’s left is to unload it and assemble the parts! And you can build your dream home gym again


When you are trying to pack and move your home gym equipment in Aurora know that you can do most of it on your own. But there are still some things you will need help with. And being extremely heavy the treadmill is one of them. The safest way for you and everyone is to find a furniture dolly. Then place the treadmill on a furniture dolly (after getting it folded up and wrapping it with a blanket). While on the dolly, center the treadmill properly. You can ask someone to help you with that. Loading it into the truck is also made easy with the help of a ramp!
