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 redecorate using what you have

The best part of moving is the change it brings along or just anticipation of the change that is to come. A new address, a new space, a new page in life, a lot is waiting to be done. But it is also a highly hectic time and it won’t relieve its positive aspects at the first glace. The whole picture becomes more blurred when you think of money, moving is a big job that can get expensive, once at your new home, you immediately want to decorate and make it look stylish, comfortable, and cozy. But your budget is tight for the moment due to all circumstances. What to do? How to redecorate using what you have? Here are some ideas.

Do it right away

You do not want to end up with a pile of unpacked boxes months after you have moved in and no home improvement projects done. Hire full service moving companies in Denver to do the heavy lifting and devote yourself to redecorating. Do it still the iron is hot or it may be forgotten when the daily routine starts to strike.  Home decorating has to happen right away. The best option is to do massive and messy projects such as painting and flooring before you move in. In case you can’t do them in advance, make them the first thing to do when you move in.

If you are rethinking colors, using one color on your walls indeed makes rooms feel bigger. But what do you think of an accent wall? Accent walls create an optical illusion, drawing the eye to a single focal point.  Think of a museum, everything is orderly there, your eye is on the painting exactly where it should be.   One single bold wall can do wonders for a room.

Redecorate using what you have – Furniture

It is gratifying to make something look and feel brand new without actually spending any money. Don’t buy new furniture paint or refinish it. After the professional help of cross country movers in Denver, it’s DIY time. If you like the shape of your old furniture refresh it with a designer or ordinary latex paints. Also, you can add some stencils. Move your furniture around, swap. What used to be in one room move it to another for a fresh look and feel of the space.

You will be surprised how much forgotten décor you already have. It’s possible to go shopping and not spend a dime. Go shopping at your house. You will rediscover beaufitul pieces. Long forgotten vases, pieces that your grandma gave you, center candlestick holders, and many more. What are the things that you can move from room to room:

  • rugs
  • lamps
  • artwork
  • decor accents
  • coffee tables
  • side tables
  • accent armchairs

Mix and match from different rooms to create a completely new interior to your liking. And if you haven’t purged before the Longmont movers relocated you, now it’s the right time to purge all the things that don’t ‘’spark joy’’.

Change drawer knobs and handles

A quick, cheap, and effective change of hardware comes with changing the knobs, pulls, and handles.   This simple redecoration can seriously transform dressers and cabinets, giving them a completely amazing look! New hardware will make inexpensive pieces look elegant, and modernize vintage pieces.

If you have some basic DIY skills and you are looking to refinish your kitchen without spending a lot of money, order unfinished solid wood cabinet doors, drawer fronts, cabinet boxes, and replacement drawers and fully redo your kitchen.


Lighting can completely transform a space — it can break it or and make it. Not to mention that it also affects your emotions and mood. Include at least three sources of light in each room: general lighting (overhead), specific lighting (table), and ambient lighting (sconces, candles, or decorative). Going from a lamp to a wall sconce puts a powerful statement. Not satisfied? Just try changing up the lampshade! It does not have to cost a lot to maximize the lighting in your home. What is more, look closer you might find in the boxes when you go shopping your own home again.

Pillows are a powerful decorating accessory. Accordingly, they can change the look of the whole room in seconds and provide extra comfort. Opt for larger well-stuffed throw pillows. Decorative pillows are inexpensive and the choice is unlimited. You can make a room feel light, bright, and cooling in summer. And then during winter, by changing the pillows, you can make the room feel cozy and warm. Don’t hesitate to experiment, the effects are instantly visible.

Reupholstering your furniture costs money. Instead, you can use textiles to give your sofas, chairs, and beds a new look. Make a headboard over the bed to freshen it up. Throw blankets can add style and a softer touch to any furnishing. Dress up upholstered chairs by adding a colorful scarf on top. This adds color to a room and you can change it easily. Hang the curtains higher and move the curtain rod closer to the ceiling to heighten the room. And choose fantastic fabric, texture, and color to accentuate your favorite armchair. This will also help your kids settle into your new home more quickly.
