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

Popular Neighborhoods in Denver

What’re the hottest areas around Denver?

Vacationing in Denver can be quite dangerous for a lot of people. You see, it seems harmless enough coming out to “go to the mountains” or “Catch a Rockies game” or even “ Go on a Coors tour”. Just some innocent fun. But then people walk through Lower Downtown (LoDo) or River North (RiNo) and the next thing they know, they’ve fallen in love with the city and the neighborhoods. And there is a twinkle in their eye and a tug on their heart.

And then they move here. In fact a Wallet Hub survey of more than 500 cities ranked Denver as the 3rd fastest growing “large” city in America. And it’s no surprise.

You see, Denver is shaping up to be a big city with a small town feel. Neighborhoods have become both trendy living and destinations at the same time. Neighborhoods like The Highlands, a highly coveted spot just west of downtown boasts artisan Mexican (The Matador) next to Sweet Cow ice cream. Old craftsman houses are sharing sidewalk space with modern, townhomes, and modern townhomes. It is now a blend of family living with high-class culture.

Or consider RiNo.

5 years ago, you couldn’t shake a stick at more than a grunge bar on the outskirts of the downtown. Now, Phil’s Place and Great Divide Brewing anchor blocks of startups, apartments, and upscale eateries. The street art and murals that grace the walls of local brews and craft coffee is the perfect backdrop for tourists who want a lot of experience close to downtown or for the new transplant who wants their work-life balance blend into one rhythm.

According to the Downtown Denver Partnership (DDP), the top neighborhoods in Denver as determined by growth are in the heart of the city. Using data and growth trends from 2010-2017, the DDP zeroed in on what’s growing the fastest. Nobody should be surprised that urban living came out on top.

The DDP ranked Central Platte Valley neighborhood as the fastest growing neighborhood in central Denver. And if you find yourself saying “Where is Central Platte Valley”, you’re not alone. In fact, this neighborhood almost doesn’t stand on its own feet because, unlike Wash Park or Capitol Hill, it doesn’t seem to have it’s own identity. Rather, it just blends with the rest of downtown.

But CPV is one of the most developed neighborhoods for city living. Bordered by Speer on the south, I-25 to the west, 20th street to the north, and Wazee, this trendy neighborhood boasts the flagship REI store, Denver Beer Co, Denver’s skatepark, the new common space WeWork and a host of mixed used retail & office space units and is slowly being dominated by infill. Not to mention the new Whole Foods and Union Station are only a stone’s throw away.

DDP’s 2nd fastest growing neighborhood is Ballpark. Similar to CPV, a couple years ago, you wouldn’t even know this as a neighborhood… Rather it was a destination. But with infll apartments lining up, Ballpark has pulled away from Union Station to become its own “thing”. It has grown 52% since 2010 and currently boasts 5,000 people. Biker Jim’s Hot Dogs and Work and Class, Snooze Breakfast Eatery are some of the hot spots in the neighborhood.

And while the lines between LoDo (a notable, distinct neighborhood) and Ballpark are ambiguous, Trip Advisor suggests visiting Beta nightclub or the Great Divide taproom.

The Central Business District is also coming into its own, not only as the economic hub of Denver, but as a destination to work and play. On the southern edge of the CBD, the Denver Center for the Performing Arts plays host to some of the country’s most premier acts, such as Cirque Du Soleil to Hamilton.

Next door to the Center for Performing Arts is the Convention Center, home to the Great American Beer Fest (an event that attracts 60,000 attendees and more than 800 breweries across the USA). The Convention Center also serves close to 1 million people with dozens of other conferences throughout the year, according to Denver.org.

The CBD also has a great foundation of restaurants that serve the working population and attract diners from all over the city for the night life. It’s also notable that many of the infill projects in the CBD are residential as opposed to business as more Denverites desire to live and work downtown. New projects such as SkyHouse boast luxury living with resort-style pool, floor to ceiling windows, and mountain views and on the same power block as prestigious law firms and banks.

If you had looked at the city even 5 years ago, you would find yourself saying “I don’t even recognize this city anymore.” More restaurants and local food and culture have sprung up to serve. There are dozens of start-ups making Denver a tech hub. And the architecture is changing across the city with dozens of cranes lining the sky, slowly adding more apartments, condos, and office space. And new or remodeled homes and grass-roots culture are starting to define neighborhoods as places to live, work, and enjoy life.
