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 prepare your art collection for a long distance move

If you are planning to move home and have an art collection, you will need to put in time and effort to pack it properly. We will explain how to prepare your art collection for a long-distance move without damaging it. Prints and paintings are delicate and you have to be careful not to shatter the glass. On the other hand, sculptures are heavy and of unusual shape, which makes them difficult to transport. If you are an inexperienced mover we would recommend hiring one of the reliable long distance moving companies Denver to handle the relocation.

Collect the necessary packing materials to prepare your art collection for a long distance move

Collecting quality packing materials is a crucial part of your move. If you decide to pack and relocate on your own, you will have to start this process weeks, even months before the big day. However, if you hire moving professionals, they will provide packing services and accelerate the whole process. Packing materials are especially important when you start to prepare your art collection for a long-distance move.

Protect painting with bubble wrap and packing paper.
Delicate items, such as paintings, have to be properly packed for relocation

Packing supplies that you will need to protect prints and painting are bubble wrap, moving boxes of various sizes, markers for labeling boxes, scissors, tape, packing paper, etc. Bear in mind that you don’t have to buy all these supplies. You can get free moving boxes in local bookstores, grocery stores, or liquor stores. Just make sure they are durable, sturdy, and in good condition. Also, instead of using bubble wrap, you can protect your items with towels, clothes, or bed sheets.

Gather packing supplies in advance.
Use quality packing supplies to prepare your art collection for a long-distance move

When it comes to sculptures, the choice of packing materials will depend on the size and shape of the piece. Sculptures can be placed in wooden crates or moving boxes if they small. Also, you can use bubble wrap, shredded paper, or packing peanuts for protection. Use markers to label your boxes – write essential information on them so that your Denver movers know what is inside. This is particularly important as you should write handling instructions such as “fragile” or “handle with care”. Sculptures are heavy, bulky, and of unusual shape so, if possible, leave their packing and transport to professionals.

Prepare your art collection for a long-distance move

Once you gather all the necessary supplies, you can start packing your art collection. It’s necessary to protect each painting and pad the box you will be placing it in. If your artwork has a glass pane, go around the edge with tape. If the glass breaks during transit, this will prevent it from damaging your painting. Then use several layers of bubble wrap to protect it and make sure you don’t leave any exposed corners. You can also buy specialized cardboard corner protectors if necessary. Once you place your paintings fill all spaces between the artwork and the box with more paper. Your sculptures and statues should also be wrapped with bubble wrap. Use several layers of bubble wrap and then seal it with tape. After you put the wrapped sculpture in a box or wooden crate, fill the inside space with shredded paper or packing peanuts. This will prevent the sculpture from moving in transit.

Find a reliable moving company to transport your belongings

Hiring experienced apartment movers Denver is a crucial part of your relocation. They will ensure the safe transport of your valuable items. Also, professional movers are well-informed about struggles and challenges you might have, and ways to overcome them. Their advice is invaluable, especially when you are moving pricey possessions such as painting and sculptures. In addition to that, reliable movers can help you find a storage facility where you can store some of your items. If you don’t know where to place some of your belongings, especially bulky and heavy sculptures, you can leave them there. Choose a facility with gates, cameras, and guards, and rest assured your things are safe.

Finding a moving company that meets all your needs and fits your budget requires thorough research. Check specialized moving websites where you can find general information about moving companies, overall marks, ratings, comments, and complaints. Based on this, you will be able to get an idea about the quality of service they offer. This research might take some time but it’s crucial to invest some time and effort if you want to make the right decision. Also, ask your friends, colleagues, and family members for a recommendation. Maybe they know someone who has recently moved. Their suggestions and advice would be valuable because there is nothing better than personal experience. In addition to that, these are people you trust so you know their feedback is honest and objective. Make a list of movers that meet your demands and then compare moving quotes.


Moving is a stressful and tiring process. This is especially true if you are transporting items which are very valuable. Artwork, sculptures, statues, fine china, jewelry are costly and you have to protect them properly. First of all, it’s necessary to plan your relocation carefully so that you would know exactly what you should be doing before, during, and after the move. In case you need to prepare your art collection for a long-distance move, make sure to learn packing techniques. You will need to collect quality packing materials in advance. Another option is to hire a reliable moving company to pack and transport your belongings. Accidents can happen even to the most careful people or most experienced moving companies. However, professional movers are well-trained and will make sure your belongings arrive safely to your new home. We wish you a happy and safe relocation.
