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 valuable items to Arvada

Moving can be a stressful and overwhelming process. There are many activities you have to plan, from packing items and labeling boxes to finding reliable Arvada movers. If you are moving valuable items to Arvada, you have to be particularly careful. You must learn how to protect and pack those items properly, in order to prevent any damage. Experienced movers can help you with that and offer valuable advice. On the other hand, if you decide to pack on your own make sure to gather the necessary packing supplies in advance. Read on and find out how to find good movers and protect your valuables before transport.

Find reliable movers when moving valuable items to Arvada

Hiring a moving company that can meet all your needs is the key step to a successful move. If you have a small inventory it will not be difficult to organize and pack your belongings. However, even in this situation, small movers CO can accelerate and facilitate your relocation. They can help you plan your moving day and even offer a packing service. In case you are wondering how to find a great moving company that fits your budget, we have some suggestions.

Find reliable and experienced movers.
Hire a good moving company to transport your valuables to Arvada

First, ask your family and friends whether they can recommend good movers. Maybe they know somebody who has moved recently. In that case, you will save a lot of time and energy. You can ask them about their experience and be sure that people you trust will offer honest and objective feedback. Also, it’s recommendable to check companies’ reviews on specialized moving websites such as the Better Business Bureau. Here you can find basic information about a particular company, previously submitted comments and complaints. Don’t forget to check not only customers’ feedback but also the companies’ responses. This should give you a clear idea about the quality of service the company offers and the way they deal with customer demands and complaints.

Gather packing supplies

As we already explained, you can hire a company that offers packing services or pack your belongings yourself. Before you make a decision, you should know that packing is the activity that lasts the longest. It requires a lot of time and energy. Before you start packing, organize all your possessions and decide which items you want to move. The cost of your relocation depends mostly on the weight and number of moving boxes, so make sure to get rid of the items you no longer need. This includes furniture that won’t fit in your new home, clothes you no longer wear, old gadgets and appliances, kids’ toys, etc. You can either donate all these items or sell them on eBay and make some additional money. Moving can be quite costly so extra cash will come in handy.

Now that you have decided which items you want to transport to your new apartment, start gathering moving supplies. This is particularly important when moving valuable items to Arvada. Basic moving supplies include

  • Cardboard boxes of different sizes
  • Bubble wrap and packing paper to protect your belongings
  • Markers for labeling boxes
  • Scissors and tape

Moving boxes don’t have to be new but they must be sturdy and durable. You don’t want to risk damaging your valuable items in case they break during the move. Instead of cardboard boxes, you can rent plastic containers or even containers you already have, such as suitcases and laundry boxes. Remember that packing is the most important part of your relocation so don’t rush it. If you own bulky, heavy, fragile or very expensive items, our recommendation is to leave it to professionals. In this way, you will ensure the safety of your belongings and avoid any possible moving injuries.

Are you moving valuable items to Arvada? Here is how you should protect them

Artwork must be wrapped in bubble wrap.
Protect and pack your artwork carefully before the move

Protecting your high-value items such as antiques, fine china, art collection, expensive jewelry or silverware during a move is very important. You can either inform your movers about which valuable items need extra protection or you can protect and pack them yourself. Not only can they get broken or damaged during the move, but also stolen. If you own expensive jewelry the best option is to keep it with you at all times, safely packed in a bag.

Artwork should be wrapped in bubble wrap – use several layers and packing tape to secure that the bubble wrap stays in place. Don’t leave any exposed corners and, if necessary, purchase specialized cardboard corner protectors. Pad the box before placing the artwork in it and use packing paper to fill all spaces between the artwork and the box so that it wouldn’t move during the transport. Make sure to label the box with “fragile”. Take pictures of your belongings during packing. This will be useful in case something gets lost or damaged during the move.

Inform yourself about valuation coverage

The coverage that most companies offer is basic and it is called released value protection. It is included in the price but doesn’t cover the actual value of your belongings. It is usually set at 60 cents per pound per article, so if you are moving valuable items to Arvada consider buying additional insurance. Full value protection means that the moving company is liable for the full value of your items, and in case something gets damaged during transport the moving company is obliged to replace them or compensate for its current dollar value.

Research valuating coverage before the move.

Another important information is that the moving company is not responsible for the protection of items of extraordinary value. These are items with a value of more than $100 per pound, such as jewelry, artwork or fine china. If you own these items, consider buying third-party moving insurance, which is usually priced at 1-2% of the value of your belongings.
