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

Preparing your antique furniture for a long-distance move to Conifer

Look at an antique and imagine all of the significant moments in time and intense feelings that it has witnessed throughout its long life. What kinds of people have used it, and what secrets does it hold? If you’re looking for a piece of furniture that’s both gorgeous and priceless, you’re going to want to look for antiques. A piece of antique furniture can serve as a cherished family heirloom, a reminder of both happy and sad events in one’s life. It has withstood the test of time, withstanding changing fads, social norms, and personal tastes. So make sure to be careful with that long-distance move to Conifer, while moving furniture. Hiring good Denver Movers is probably the best way to preserve your furniture.

Don’t try to make it out cheap

The next major life change is likely to be a long-distance move to Conifer. If this is the case, you’ll likely want to ensure the safety of your prized antique furniture and have it moved to your new home without a scratch. However, how can you move an antique in a secure and efficient manner? How can you protect it in the midst of the turbulence of migration? It’s not easy to transport antiquities across the country. You’ll need the help of an expert to deal with it successfully. If you want a clearer understanding of the challenges you face when moving antique furniture, take a look at the tips provided below.

Padding and packing

Antique furniture is known to be fragile. And certain pieces are particularly delicate. In order to avoid damage in transit, they must be adequately packed and wrapped. There are a variety of ways to accomplish this, depending on the furnishings. In the case of fabric-coated antiques, acid-free plastic must be used first. The plastic will be impervious to liquids, dirt, debris, and the like if it is constructed in this manner. Plastic is also non-toxic, so it won’t harm the fabric in any way. A large piece of antique wooden furniture necessitates the use of moving pads. Long distance movers Colorado rely on these extra-large, extra-thick pads on a regular basis. When it comes to bedding, they look like heavy-duty blankets. Packing tape and cushioning should be used to secure all of your antiques. (After then, it begins to decline significantly.)

Get an inventory

You should make an inventory of all your antique furniture pieces so you can see the big picture and keep track of your valuable assets. Check your whole house for antiques and write down their names, where they are, and any other important information. Include a detailed description of the antique’s current condition, including any damage, and several high-resolution pictures of the piece (photograph it from all sides and angles, so that you have solid evidence of its actual condition). This will be very helpful if you need to file a claim against the moving company after the long-distance move to Conifer. To prevent that be sure to check on the moving company on the Better Business Bureau website.

You want to take care of your precious antiques

You can always use a storage unit

  • The attic, cellar, garage, and so on are all good places to store antiques. What’s more, they’ll do nothing to protect your artifacts. Antiques can be damaged by a variety of circumstances, including heat and cold, dust, filth, vermin, and more. Do you know what’s up there? The heat in the summers can be oppressive. Is it in the basement? It’s far too rainy. There’s also the garage. Accidents and children put us at risk. A climate-controlled or temperature-controlled storage container is the best solution, but not the only one.
  • Your antiques will be safe from humidity damage. While they will also be protected from extreme temperature fluctuations by the second. Some moving services Denver CO also provide storage units for use. Compared to a normal storage container, both are far more secure (although, for some, they might work also). The choice is yours to make, of course. Clean, safe, and secure climate-controlled, temperature-controlled, and regular storage spaces are available at Storage Solutions. You can reach a friendly manager online if you have any questions or need assistance. The best option is to meet with a manager in person at the store location. It is a pleasure to work with these people.

How do you move antique furniture without damaging it?

  • These products should be carried or rolled on a dolly upside down to avoid harming the casters or claw feet. Because antique furniture decays with time, it is best to avoid dragging or pushing an antique on its pads. Your antiques should be transported with care. Movers like movers Conifer have a lot of experience in these fields.
  • Glass can be found in the doors of some antiques, as well as in the ornamentation. After cushioning the item, adhere a piece of cardboard to the pads directly beneath the glass.
  • To transport an antique piece of furniture, its legs may not be strong enough, to protect it, carry it on top of the rest of the burden upside down. To avoid the crown breaking on another piece when the padding compresses, it is necessary to place double padding in the crown at a height well above the crown.

Get your furniture ready for the move

Before moving, empty and thoroughly clean your furniture items to make them lighter and easier to move (and hence less susceptible to breaking). It’s important to inspect each piece of furniture thoroughly to identify any potential issues (e.g., weak or non-sealed portions) and any specific handling or transportation requirements. Make sure your movers have all the information they need ahead of time for your long-distance move to Conifer.
