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

Moving a large household, how to pack in the right order?

In case you are moving a large household, you will need to do several things right. First and foremost, you will need to make sure that your packing order is flawless. This is exactly why our moving company decided to write this guide. We will, in short, tell you more about the packing order and, hopefully, help you with your relocation. So, your job is to acquire some really good supplies and materials and to follow our guide. Also, if you need any help with this, feel free to contact one of the best full service moving companies Denver offers. They will relocate you in no time. In any case, let us see what our guide is all about, shall we?

What to pack first when moving a large household?

In case you are moving a large household, you will need to make sure that you pack perfectly. You do not want to lose a lot of items during your relocation, but this is possible. Even more, you will need to make sure that all of your important items are there. So, you will have a lot of planning to do. One of the better ways to proceed with this, no matter if you relocate to New York City, Los Angeles, or to London, UK, is to make sure that you:

Pack your documents and all important items first
  • Pack your essentials first. Your documents, your valuables, PCs, TVs, everything that is expensive is your essential item. Also, your documents and the items you cannot live without belong in this category as well. Think about those items before everything else.
  • Then pack your necessary items. After you pack your essentials, you will need to pack all the items that are necessary for life. For example, your clothes, your beds, your refrigerators, and so on. Some might consider them essential, but documents and personal IDs are more important than that.
  • After that, pack everything else. You will, then, need to pack the items you can replace easily somewhere else. However, pack only the items that you will definitely need as soon as you relocate. In any case, do this before you contact the best movers Vail CO offers.

What else to think about?

You could, technically, do a room-by-room packing order, however, large households are not the best for that. You will end up having to do a lot more work than you usually would. In any case, you should make sure that you clean and declutter your items before you move them. You will be surprised that, approximately, 30% of your extra items can be decluttered from the start. This would, of course, mean that you will have 30% less work to do. If you want to completely lift this burden off your back you can always hire professional packing services Denver and let them handle the packing process for you.

Overall, when you are moving a large household, you will need to make sure that everything goes according to plan. So, declutter first, then make sure to pack your essentials. After you do that, move to your next tier of items (based on importance). We are certain that you will do this without any problems. Hope we helped!
