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

Tips for relocating antique furniture

Is antiquing your favorite hobby? If it is, then you must have a pretty impressive collection just sitting in your home. While that’s great in everyday life, what happens when the time for relocating antique furniture comes? You will be extra stressed because you know how much is at stake. That’s why we suggest you consider hiring reliable Denver movers and have them help you with this intricate task. Other than that, here are some of the things you can do to best prepare for what’s to come!

Clean your furniture before packing it

When moving, no one really thinks about cleaning. Nevertheless, this should be a mandatory part of the process. Especially if you are dealing with specialty items that are fragile in any respect. And antique furniture certainly belongs to that group. What you want to do is ensure your items are in pristine condition, but what you don’t want to do is rely on chemicals to get there.

Supplies for cleaning before relocating antique furniture
You don’t want to damage your antiques in any way

Usually, a piece of cloth, a bucket of water and some very gentle soap are all you need to get your antiques sparkly clean. Although whenever possible we certainly suggest you avoid using anything other than water. Of course, you will also need a gentle touch when handling these items. You don’t want to be the one that causes any scrapes or dents. If for any reason you feel like you won’t be able to safely handle your items, you can feel free to call in the pros. As an elderly person, you can find expert senior movers and as a student, you can find great student movers. It’s just a matter of finding what you need.

In need of storage when relocating antique furniture?

Then be very careful! Antiques, especially wooden ones, do not do well in extreme temperatures. If you were to leave your objects in a regular storage unit, the moment the temperature rises, you will have serious troubles! That’s why you need to look for a climate-controlled unit that can safely house all of your precious items. Usually, these units are a bit pricier. But take it from our Homegrown Moving and Storage Company CO team – every penny you spend on a climate-controlled unit will be well worth it!

A careful approach will be mandatory if you decide to store your antiques.

Purchase proper insurance for your items

This is one of the most common mistakes people make when relocating. We purchase so many insurance policies in our daily lives – so how do we forget to purchase it when relocating antique furniture? You already know how expensive these items can be. That’s why it doesn’t make any sense to risk financial loss. Instead, buy an insurance policy that works for your budget and needs, and ensure you get reimbursement if anything goes wrong. Hopefully, everything will be just fine – but it doesn’t hurt to be on the safe side!
