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

Is Moving on a Holiday a Good Idea?

Most people tend to get some extra time off around major holidays. So, does that make moving around a holiday a good or a bad idea? We’ve assembled some pros, cons, and tips to help you decide.


As we just mentioned, a positive for moving around a major holiday is that you might have some extra time off. This means more time to prep and get everything done that needs to during your move. This may help you feel less stressed since you’ll have more time, plus help save some of your precious PTO! Another pro is that things in general should be less busy around town including stores and traffic. Depending on the exact day, it could be easier to drive your belongs around town and not have to worry about rush hour in Denver (which is a big bonus!). Parking could also be easier since most commuters will be at home instead of parking around their work buildings. Lastly, you may be able to get others to help you move easier since most people will also be off work. This doesn’t mean you want to ask your friends to help you move at 11AM on July 4th (wink wink), however people’s schedules should be more flexible around a holiday, which hopefully means more help for you!


During the holidays some businesses (including front office staff of apartments, townhomes, condos etc.) will have limited or abbreviated hours. Be sure to plan for your move and communicate clearly in advanced if you’re moving into a new building on a holiday so you don’t find yourself locked out! There could also be limited availability with moving truck and other rental companies. This could leave you strapped for time to return your rental before they close for the holiday and could result in extra fees. If you are in downtown Denver or another downtown area, there could be holiday parking limitations. Be sure to look at the street signage so you don’t end up with a hefty fine, or worse getting towed. Lastly, the fact is that instead of enjoying your time with friends and family doing something fun, you are moving. You could miss out on valuable time with loved ones depending on which holiday it is and your families traditions.


If you do decide to move over a holiday be sure to plan things well in advance. Make sure you have all your supplies and rental reservations made so you don’t get caught in a situation where a business is closed. Make sure you have everything you need to get into your new building or home since most people will be off work and likely unavailable. If you are renting a U-haul or truck, ask ahead of time what the return policy is over a holiday and whether or not you can bring it back the next day without paying extra. And at last make sure to communicate well ahead of time to whomever is helping you move that they realize it’s a holiday and are able to help you.
