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 reasons why quality moving supplies are so important when moving during winter

Good moving supplies are always important. You will need them no matter the season. However, they are much more needed during some seasons than during others. Summer and spring are pretty mild and you can push through the relocation just using simple supplies. However, winter is a different story. Let us point out why quality moving supplies are so important when moving during winter.

Frost is your biggest enemy

While most people realize that moving during winter isn’t as easy as moving during summer, they can’t really point out why except that it’s very cold. Well, to an extent, they are right. Freezing temperatures can damage your items if they aren’t stored properly. There are some great moving companies in Boulder CO that will give you the same advice. Get some good supplies to protect your items from freezing. It might be clothes, it might be books, or something fragile. Freezing temperatures damage it all. So, do your best to avoid that happening.

Humidity is another reason why quality moving supplies are so important when moving during winter

It’s important to understand that once Denver small movers have relocated you and your items are in a truck or inside of your home, they aren’t safe if you didn’t store them properly. If they’ve been exposed to snow or humid air while they were transported, they will get moldy if not properly dried. However, drying is a pretty long process and you can easily mess it up by forgetting to dry some of your stuff. That’s why quality moving supplies are so important when moving during winter. They protect your items from all of that exposure.

What to do to protect your possessions properly

While it’s obvious that the best way to protect yourself is to hire some good packing services Denver CO has to offer, you might want to do it yourself. In that case, here are some good tips to avoid your stuff getting damaged.

Pack your stuff in plastic containers

People like to use cardboard boxes. Of course, they do, they are cheap, sturdy and you can store them wherever you like. However, it’s a really bad decision to use cardboard boxes during the winter. The biggest enemy of cardboard is water. It can ruin it and even destroy its shape. That’s why quality moving supplies are so important when moving during winter, especially plastic boxes. Plastic boxes might be a bit on the pricy side but you can literally use them for decades and they’ll still do the job.

Protect your books and clothes from the winter weather

Most moving companies Denver CO will advise you to pay special attention when dealing with your books and clothes. They are pretty delicate so you need to make sure they are all totally dry before packing them. Also, you can use bubble wrap or wrapping paper to protect your stuff further. Neither of those is expensive so it’s a great way to make sure your stuff is safe.
