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

Top Christmas home decorating ideas

The most wonderful time of the year is just around the corner. It’s time to visit the attic or the garage and check where are all the Christmas ornaments and decorations. If you are stuck in the ‘ gold and red ‘ or ‘ silver, white and blue ‘ theme for ornaments and overall decor, you can read below how to change it easily. Here are the top Christmas home decorating ideas to put you in the holiday mood. Before we start getting into the creative part, let’s address the possibility of you having to move right before or during the holidays. Long distance movers Denver can work during holidays, but make sure you double-check that while browsing.

Moving during holidays

We know that moving during or just before the holidays is not an ideal situation, but don’t let it ruin your holiday spirit. You can still have a nice celebration with your family and friends after your move. To get help with the process search for moving companies Denver and let professionals take care of your move so you still get some time to do the Christmas shopping.

Christmas home decorating ideas 

If you are moving before Christmas, you should get all of your ornaments, decor, and the tree separated from other stuff for easy access. You will probably want to decorate your new place as soon as you move in and clean. If your festive decoration is already packed, you will save some time. Wipe the boxes clean and make sure to label them so your movers handle them with extra care. When the move is done and you are settled down, unpack and clean your ornaments and get to the Christmas home decorating ideas. We suggest picking a theme after you are gone through all your Christmas stuff. It is going to be easier to choose what to keep in the box and what to put on.

How to start

When you decide on the theme, whether it’s based on a color combination or an overall vibe, the first thing you should do is get your tree out. If you are using a plastic tree, a good tip is to wash it in the shower before putting it up. It can be dusty and messy and you don’t want to inhale the dust. You don’t need chemicals, just wash it with lukewarm water and let it dry. You can choose a color-themed decor, do a vintage style Christmas, or a modern minimalistic one, the sky is the limit. Do your tree first, and leave home decorating for later, to tie it all together. When you put up the tree first, you will set yourself in the right mood and you can get a lot of inspiration from the fully decorated Christmas tree.

DIY it for a personal touch

A huge number of Christmas home decorations are simple to DIY, and affordable too. If you managed to save some money by booking some affordable apartment movers Denver, you can invest in some statement pieces. On the other hand, doing it yourself can be an interesting and fun family activity. One of the statement pieces is a centerpiece for the Christmas lunch/dinner table. Depending on your theme, you can use various things to make a centerpiece. The most common ideas are using Christmas tree branches, fake or real, pine cones, candles, and ornaments.

DIY project suggestion 

Get one of those plastic display trays, these are mostly cheap and easy to work with. You can choose the shape and size according to your taste and the size of your table. Reds are quite dominant in Christmas home decorating ideas, but you can choose whatever color you like. If you are a fan of a monochromatic look, get a plastic tray in the same color as the ornaments you intend on using for the centerpiece, and also the tree. Get a garland, some festive candles, LED ones, and leftover tree ornaments. You can arrange these how you like. Our suggestion is to put candles in the middle, wrap the garland around, and use the ornaments to fill in the space. You can add some pine cones and whatever you like to it.

Small tips that go a long way

  • Christmas home decorations don’t have to be super complicated. Hanging a garland and some ornaments on your staircase railing creates the ‘ wow factor ‘ quite easily.
  • Another simple touch-up is new prints for the photo frames. Download free Christmas-themed prints or get cheaper ones online. You can use photos from previous Christmases and display them all over the house for easy and sentimental festive decor.
  • Fairy and LED lights are affordable and bring coziness and warmth to the place. If you don’t like multi-colored ones, try using warm white for a cozy effect, and cold white light for an icy wintery vibe.
  • Having a fireplace is great, but if you don’t have one, don’t worry. There are tons of videos online of wood slowly burning in the fireplace followed by sound effects. All you need is a smart TV and two clicks.

The rule is that there are no rules

When it comes to Christmas home decorating ideas, there are no rules. Do whatever you like, play with colors, textures, and shapes. You don’t even have to have a traditional tree, you can make one out of various things, such as books for example. Stack them up and create a shape of a tree and decorate them as you like. Also, there’s nothing wrong with reusing last year’s decorations, especially if you have to move before the holidays and you are exhausted. Holidays tend to be busy for a lot of people. If you have to move asap, look for emergency moving company, and don’t forget you can still enjoy the holidays. Choosing the right moving company and staying organized can save you from all the additional stress.
