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 bulky coats and jackets

When the time for the move comes, packing presents one of the biggest concerns for you. And most of you thinking about packing furniture, dishes, appliances. The last thing on your to-do list is packing clothes, jackets, coats. It seems like people don’t pay much attention when packing clothes, because they think they will do this task easily. However, if your clothes don’t have enough attention as they require, things could go wrong and packing could last more than you expect. What you need to do is to avoid potential problems such as damaging and ripping off your valuable clothes. The best way to make it is to stay with our experts from one of the finest moving companies Denver. We have prepared a simple guide on how to pack bulky coats and jackets on short notice. After you read this guide, packing your clothes will be efficient!

Prepare for packing your clothes

Before you start thinking about the ways to pack your winter clothes, you should decide whether you need them or not. Because if you are not going to wear them, you should not move them to your new home. So, before the packing starts, take relocating to Denver as an opportunity to declutter your closet. This is especially important when it comes to your winter clothes since there is a pretty number of heavy and bulky pieces. So, let your first step be sorting out your bulky coats and jackets. Take time to carefully examine if some of them are stained or ripped. Put aside jackets and coats that you can not use anymore. Further, try on the rest of your coats and jackets to see if they still fit you. If don’t, you should give up on packing them.

Even if your move is urgent, you will probably have enough time to decide should you pack all bulky coats for the move. And according to our experts for packing services Denver, there are so many reasons to skip packing all of them. As we already mentioned, some of them are damaged, they don’t fit you anymore, and if you still decide to pack them, the price of your move will be higher. Also, you will need more packing supplies to pack those bulky winter garments you actually don’t need. If you pack bulky jackets you will not use in the future, you will have less space in your closet, too. Instead of this, sell, donate or give your coats and jackets to charity before packing starts! This way you can dedicate yourself to properly packing the rest of your coats and jackets you truly need.

The right packing methods will help you save your clothes from getting dirty, stained, or ripped out. Also, if you use the right techniques you will save time and space while packing.

Packing techniques- pack jackets and coats step by step

Before you pack bulky coats, you will need to fold them neatly. So, button-up or zip your jacket or coat, because this will make them easier to fold. Firstly, fold the sleeves of your jacket or coat. Now lay the piece of clothes on its front side and fold each sleeve backward, then fold the coat or jacket in half. Use your bed, table, or any other surface to do this. Start from the collar and squeeze your jacket tighter by rolling it up. Now you can use a vacuum bag to vacuum it or just roll it up and pack it in a suitcase or box.

Stick to the right techniques when you need to pack your bulky coats and jackets.

In case your jacket or coat has a detachable hood, make sure to remove it right away. In case you need to pack a jacket with a non-detachable hood, try to roll a jacket into the hood. If this is not possible, fold the hood differently but before you fold the jacket in half. Wish you to pack your bulky coats and jackets trouble-free!
