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 ski equipment when moving to Conifer

If you are a fan of winter sports and planning on moving or visiting Conifer, we can understand why. There are lots of amazing ski resorts making it the perfect destination for skiing. However, you’ll need to know how to pack your ski equipment. So if you decided to make it harder for yourself and avoid hiring the packing services Denver CO moving companies offer, here’s a guide on how to pack your ski equipment when moving to Conifer on your own.

How to pack the skis when moving to Conifer

If you can, buy a ski bag online before the relocation day. A ski bag will ensure that your equipment is safe and at no risk of being damaged during transportation. However, if you don’t have the time to buy a ski bag, here are the steps on how to pack your ski equipment when moving to Conifer:

  • Wrap the skis and pols separately in the stretch wrap so they don’t scratch.
  • Put the equipment in the ski bag if you have one, and cover it with moving blankets. Use duct tape or zip ties around the ends to prevent the equipment from slipping out.
  • Additionally, you can use foam pipe insulation to cover the poles.

Packing the helmet

Look for a box that’s a bit bigger than the helmet and line it using a soft cloth. Put the helmet inside the box and cover it with another soft cloth. You can use packing peanuts or newspaper to fill the empty space inside the box. Or you can even use your ski underwear to fill any empty space.

Packing the boots

Because the boots are less fragile than the skis, they’re easier for packing and moving. However, they’re still expensive which means you’ll have to take extra care. Fill both boots with packing paper to keep their shape. After you do this, cover the boots with a soft cloth so they don’t scratch. Denver small movers recommend you put the boots in a moving box and fill it with packing peanuts in case there’s movement so they don’t damage during transportation.

Packing the accessories

Pack accessories such as bindings, goggles, wax, etc. in a small box and label it. Wrap the goggles in a case or foam packing wrap to prevent scratching. In addition, tape the box of wax containers shut and put it in individual plastic bags. This will protect the rest of the box in case the wax melts.

Keeping your ski equipment safe

When you follow our guide on how to pack your ski equipment when moving to Confier, you’ll move it to your new home safely. When the movers Conifer CO come to your home to load your belongings onto the moving truck, make sure that your ski equipment is the last thing that’s loaded.

Final words

Packing your ski equipment when moving to Conifer is important to make sure it arrives safely at your new home. However, if you don’t have the time to pack it yourself, consider hiring one of the moving companies Denver offers. With their experience and skills, they’ll pack and move your equipment to your new home with ease.
