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

Who will be relocating your expensive furniture to a new apartment?

Obviously, you want to relocate all your items safely, but relocating your expensive furniture to a new apartment can be quite a challenge. Especially if you have some antique pieces with you. Therefore, you should seek out a specialized moving team to handle this part. Find appropriate furniture movers Denver who has all the tools and equipment to undertake this journey with you.

But before you give them a call, you should obtain enough information about your relocation project. Inspect the whole environment and figure out if there are any obstacles that might damage your furniture. Remove what you can and prepare your home for the move. Also, by inspecting everything, you will realize how many packing materials you need and how much to invest in the whole deal. Assemble a moving checklist and list down all the requirements, questions, chores, errands, and tasks. Once you have it all, call your movers and work closely with the moving representative in order to form the best moving plan.

Onsite estimates are important

When you call your movers, ask them any questions you need answering. Give them all the info you previously obtained so they can provide a moving quote. But the best way to forge a moving plan and realize the complexity of this task is to utilize free onsite estimates. This way movers will send someone over to weigh your cargo, inspect the furniture, check out the environment, and figure out where to establish a loading dock. Also, they will point out if you can make something easier by utilizing one of the moving services Denver. It is an amazing approach serious moving companies have and you shouldn’t miss this one. Especially because it is free. Therefore, give your movers a call and schedule an appointment.

Relocating your expensive furniture to a new apartment – How to prepare?

Now, if you have the knowledge and skill you can do some things yourself before the movers arrive. For example, disassembling some of the furniture will reduce the moving cost and you will invest fewer hours into it. Also, you must have all the tools for the job as well as an adequate set of packing supplies. So, check out the list of items you must obtain if you want to do this yourself:

  • Tools – You should have the proper tools to disassemble your furniture. Use power drill, hammer, screwdriver, and pliers. Although, if it is wooden furniture in question, you must be extremely careful. Some pieces are not meant to be disassembled ever. Make sure you are aware of which one you have before you begin.
  • Blister packs – Widely known as bubble wrap, it is the ultimate king of protection. Wrap the entire piece or individual pieces and you won’t have to worry for a second.
  • Packing tape – Packing tape will hold everything nicely. Just remember not to use it directly on the furniture and rather over the blister pack or packing paper.
  • Corner pads – Use corner pads to secure the edges of any furniture you like. This is especially important for mirrors and antique furniture.
  • Cardboard box – You should pack all small pieces in bags and label it with the piece it belongs to. Place little baggies inside one box to keep them all together. This way you won’t lose a thing.

Your moving crew should handle the hardest part

Relocating your expensive furniture to a new apartment should be left to movers. Yes, it is understandable that you want to help and make it all easier. But in fact, you might hinder the progress if you do not know how to do it. And you do not want to be the reason behind a moving injury or damaged equipment. Therefore, let your movers handle all the hauling and the hard labor. It is what you hired them for. Besides, they have the knowledge, manpower, and experience to tackle this project. Simply let them do their job while you supervise everything. Hopefully, you’ll find a good moving team that will relocate your furniture successfully.

Whatever needs to be disassembled, let your movers do it. They have the tools and the knowledge.

Moving insurance is highly recommended

Safety is what might concern you the most. You want to secure your moving project and relocate your items without a single moving mishap. This includes damages to your equipment, moving injuries, and missing items. So, you should consider and obtain moving insurance either from your movers or from an insurance company. Cover this side of the story and in case of any damages, you will be reimbursed adequately.

Some unpleasant events occur due to the mover’s incompetence while others can be caused by environmental influence. Such is a winter relocation. If you have such a project on your hands, you should have winter moving equipment and safety measures in place. Therefore, do whatever is in your power to cover your side of the fence. Leave no room for a mistake and hope that your movers will do the same. And for the moving insurance, it will be in place in case something serious happens.

Relocating your expensive furniture to a new apartment requires a proper plan and a delicate execution. Now you know how to do it and prepare for it. Hopefully, you will have reliable movers assisting so you won’t have to worry about a thing. Good luck and stay safe!
