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

Our packing services Denver CO, will surely meet your needs and will make your art collection safe from damage. With our high-quality packing materials and experienced movers, packing your art for the move to Cherry Hills Village will be a breeze.

Methods For Packing Your Art Collection For Cherry Hills Village

To be able to pack your art properly, you have to put all of your art on a list. You must also think of the materials you are going to need. Also, take into consideration that different pieces of art require different packing methods and materials. For example, you will not pack a painting the same way you’ll pack a sculpture. We will cover the required methods below.

Packing a painting and packing a sculpture are two different things.

Packing a painting for Cherry Hills Village

Paintings are an extremely delicate part of your art collection. This is why they must be handled with lots of care and caution to avoid damage. Packing your paintings carelessly can lead to tearing, paint scraping, surface scratches, and many other unwanted side effects. If you follow all these steps, you will make your paintings damage-proof during the move. To pack your paintings properly for the relocation to Cherry Hills Village, follow the steps below:

  • Never touch your painting directly.
  • When you use paper to wrap your painting, make sure you’re using acid-free paper so as to avoid causing damage.
  • Protect your painting against moisture by wrapping it in plastic.
  • Use lots of sturdy, solid cardboards on both sides of the painting to prevent folding and bending.
  • Carefully tape it all together and your frameless painting is good to go.
  • Your painting will probably be the safest if it’s framed, but you must also be careful in this situation: find a  cardboard box that is large enough for the frame to fit, wrap the piece in bubble wrap, and fill the remaining space with your preferred packing material.

Packing sculptures for the move

When it comes to packing a sculpture, you probably think that all you have to do is use lots of bubble wrap. However, this is far from enough. If you just wrap the sculpture without any planning or method, you won’t protect it properly.

  • Make sure to get a box: don’t think that your sculpture will be safe without a box.
  • Don’t wrap the sculpture all at once, but instead do it in several parts: start from the top and reach the middle, then use scissors to cut this part off.
  • Once you wrap the upper half of your sculpture, use duct tape to secure it firmly.
  • Repeat the process but this time from below: make sure that the top and bottom pieces of bubble wrap overlap a little, and then use duct tape in that spot.
  • Overlap the lower half of the sculpture and secure it with tape to protect the bottom.
  • Use any packing material, preferably shredded paper, to fill the box you will put the sculpture in make sure to make a hole in the shredded paper so the sculpture will fit, then fill the empty spaces to prevent movement during transport.

Once you are done packing your art collection, our movers Cherry Hills Village CO will do the rest of the work for you. Your art collection will be safely transported to your chosen location.
