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 fragile items

In the moving process, special treatment has fragile items. Package for fragile items needs to be prepared and it takes some time. We made the best guide to pack fragile items:

  • Make an inventory list of fragile items
  • Find wrappings for them
  • Prepare the moving boxes different size
  • Get tapes
  • Label the moving boxes

Make an inventory list to pack fragile items

Take a good look at your fragile items. They are very different. They can be small, breakable and soft. Or they can be massive and expensive. Make a list of them so you can pack fragile items in the right way. For example, the piano is massive and heavy, not very breakable, but it is expensive and valuable for you. Tell your movers about it. Then you have the dishes, china that you get from your grandmother that has emotional value for you. Very breakable and fragile. Think about it. On the inventory list make a table and divide things that are massive and the things that are small and breakable.

Find wrappings for fragile items

When you need to pack fragile items you must find adequate wrapping for them first. We are talking about blankets, sheets, bubble wrap, and sponge. You can wrap and surround the dishes and china with a sponge, but the piano needs to be wrapped in the sheets and blankets. The ropes can be used for tightening up the item. Electronics need to be packed in the bubble wrap and protected from bouncing when they are a load to the moving truck. You can use bubble wrap in a different way.

By using the bubble wrap while you pack fragile items you will be sure that your electronics have no scratch!

You should prepare the moving boxes for all sizes. When the movers load the truck every inch needs to be used properly. That will help to reduce the bounces in driving. Small fragile items packed in the small moving boxes.

Label the moving boxes

All movers need to know in which moving boxes are fragile items packed. Label them with “FRAGILE”.

That will help them to pay special attention to those boxes. They will treat them with care, load them in the moving truck and unload them gently. Pack fragile items in the right way and you will have no problem when you arrive at your new home. They will be intact.
