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

Packing and moving small kitchen appliances

Packing is that one part of the moving process that everyone dreads. It takes a long time to do it and if you don’t do it right, you can end up with a heartbreaking result. If we could pick one room as the most difficult to pack, it would be the kitchen. Apart from the fact that it usually is one of the biggest rooms, it also has many items. The majority of them are weirdly shaped and/or delicate. Because of these items, and many other reasons, it is best to hire some full service moving companies Denver. But packing is also doable on your own. All you need is a little bit of knowledge on packing and moving small kitchen appliances.

Our best tips on packing and moving small kitchen appliances

If you are living a minimalist lifestyle, you might have only a few kitchen appliances. But let’s face it, kitchen appliances have a certain charm to them. When you see them, you just want to buy more and more. And let’s not lie, the majority of them can make everyday cooking tasks much easier. Some of the most frequently seen kitchen appliances are:

  • Coffee makers
  • Microwaves
  • Blenders
  • Toasters
  • Mixers
  • Air fryer

But once you decide to hire some packing services Denver CO, the number of kitchen appliances can be overwhelming. Fear not, because, with the right tips on packing and moving small kitchen appliances, it will be much easier to do.

Clean kitchen appliances first

Since these items are used in the kitchen, the majority of them will have grease, crumbs, and other food remaining on them. You don’t want any of that in your new home. So, before you pack them up and give them to some movers Lakewood CO, clean each one thoroughly. Once you finish, let them dry before wrapping them up, to prevent moisture from being trapped inside.

Remove parts that can be removed

Even though the additional parts of the appliances don’t add much weight to them, it will be safer to pack them separately. The blade of your blender, for example, should be packed separately, but still in the same box as the blender itself. If your appliances have fragile parts, don’t forget to label the boxes. This way, some movers in DTC will know to handle these boxes with care.

Wrap appliances and put them in the right-sized boxes

Packing paper and bubble wrap are a must when packing almost anything. They will offer great protection while moving the items with some local movers Denver CO. Now when it comes to boxes, the ideal solution would be to pack the appliance in its original box. But let’s be honest, who keeps those? Try to find a box that has just enough space for the appliance to fit. If you feel it shifting around, fill the empty spaces with bubble wrap or packing paper. Don’t put two appliances in a bigger box because they will most likely get damaged.

Conclusion on packing and moving small kitchen appliances

Packing and moving small kitchen appliances doesn’t have to be as difficult as it sounds. If you have many items in your kitchen, you should start packing on time. If you are doing the packing process right, it will take quite some time to complete. The pressure of not having enough time to get everything ready is the last thing you will want on top of the already existing moving stress! We wish you good luck.
