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

Insiders Packing List Guide

Insiders Packing List for Moving

At Homegrown Moving and Storage Company, we’re all about helping the fine folks of Colorado save money during their move. This is why we’ve come up with the “Insiders Packing List” to make sure you are getting the items you need for your move and avoid any big surprises. We hope you find this list helpful and use it as a resource to help you save time and money while you plan your Colorado move.

Must Haves for Packing Up Your Home

  • A variety of small, medium, and large boxes: Depending on the size of your home, you’ll want some bundles of boxes in a variety of sizes. We recommend purchasing a variety of small, medium, and large boxes from a local supplier. This will prove the most efficient process for packing up your belongings.  Please load the heavier items like books, and canned goods in small boxes. Try not to load the medium and large boxes with too much weight as this will significantly slow down your move and add more cost because we are not able to move as many heavy boxes at one time.
  • Packing tape and tape gun: You want to be sure to have some quality packing tape and tape-gun to make sure boxes are securely taped up for packing and moving
  • Packing paper: You’ll want to invest in some rolls of packing paper for boxing up your dishes, decor, and delicate items in boxes to help keep them safe and secure.
  • Sharpie markers and labels: Buy a pack of colored permanent markers to help with box labeling and organization or buy different color labels for different rooms in your home.  This is very helpful when moving into your new place as everything is color coded and easy fo the movers to identify which room they go into.
  • Moving blankets: 4 to 12 depending on how much artwork and furniture you have. These help keep wood and leather from getting scratched
  • Wardrobe boxes: Depending how many clothes you have, especially nicer garments, you may want to have a handful of wardrobe boxes for hanging/packing some of your finer clothes
  • Ratchet straps: 4-6 straps to help keep large items secure during your move (even if closeby)
  • Sticky notes: To help with any last minute labeling or organizing/staging
  • Dolly: To assist with moving large items and appliances
  • Hammer & Screwdrivers: For taking down nails, hanging brackets, bed frames
