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 your rugs and carpets

Organizing a move to a new home is always an interesting challenge, no matter how many times you have moved before. Every element of a move, from hiring quality movers such as the Home Grown Moving Company, or planning the packing schedule, have their own particular set of steps that you should follow in order to successfully execute the move. The same goes for packing your belongings. Different types of items require different types of care and a different type of packing. Rugs and carpets are no different. That is why we have created this short, handy guide on how to pack your rugs and carpets in the most efficient way possible. 

Step 1. – Clean them properly before you do anything else 

In order to prepare rugs and carpets for whichever long distance moving companies Denver you have hired, you first need to clean them. Vacuum them carefully one by one. It is really important to do this properly so that any pests residing in them are removed. This is especially important if you plan to put them in storage somewhere. A great way to make sure you did the job is to put them in the sun for a few hours

Step 2. – Figure out the direction of the nap and turn them upside down

Every rug’s fibers have a certain direction. Use your hand to determine this by rubbing it over the surface of the rug. Smooth them over towards the correct side. Once you have done that, turn the rug upside down. The reason for this is that most of the rugs (at least those of the cheaper kind) have stiff backsides. If you did not do this, rolling them would lead to backside cracking and deforming. Movers relocating to Denver your belongings can really damage the carpets permanently. So, make sure that you do not skip this step.

Step 3. – In order to pack your rugs and carpets, you must roll them and tie them up

Remember the nap part of the rug? Well, now you have to roll the rugs against the direction of their naps. If you have followed all the steps, once you roll the carpets this way, you will have prepared them in a way that will reduce the risk of damaging them to a minimum. In order to be as efficient as possible, roll them into the smallest cylinder you can. To do this, simply roll them slowly and tightly. Now you only need to tie them up. Use two pieces of string or twine for each and tie them up towards each end. Depending on their size, around a foot or two from the edge. Then simply roll them up (not with plastic) with sheets of hard brown or craft paper. Tape it all and they are ready for action. 

Another thing that you should be aware of when preparing to pack your rugs and carpets is that packing services  Denver could do it much better than you. This will only save your time but it will be much better for your carpets as well.
