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

What are the most difficult items to relocate long distance

Every moving process can have its own challenges, but some of them you can handle on your own. However, some of the challenges can be too big to handle. Owning one or several of the most difficult items to relocate long distance is certainly a reason to think about hiring professionals. Home Grown Moving Company is here to list some of them for you. Book your future movers on time!

Fish tank

Aquariums or fish tanks are certainly one of the most, if not the most, difficult items to move.  Fish and the plants are both very delicate and have to be handled in the right way so that they can survive the move. The longer the move, the more dangerous it will be for the fish. They need to be put in an adequate container and treated with caution. Many people would advise you to sell your fish and aquarium if you are relocating to Denver from far away. However, if you hire the right movers, even though it is still risky, it is a doable project.

Expensive artwork

Even though it can be tricky, expensive artwork is possible to move on your own. However, if you do not want to take any risks, get your moving quotes Denver as soon as possible. Original artwork is both expensive and irreplaceable. Additionally, it can have special sentimental value, which is just another reason to take better care of it. It needs to be wrapped in plastic or cardboard, and maybe even placed inside a box to be extra safe. Make sure that you label the box and not put any other boxes on top of it.


Pianos are large, heavy, and because of their shape, very difficult to hold. Long distance moving companies Denver state that it is not a rare occurrence for someone to damage their piano or other big instruments by trying to move them on their own. You need several people to help carry a huge piano, but sometimes that is not enough. Because of their odd shape, they still get damaged. This is why many people opt to leave them behind when they move. Instead of doing this, you have another option in hiring professionals to do it for you.

Other fragile items

Every home usually has numerous fragile items that may become problematic to move. Senior moving services Denver always advises wrapping them in cardboard or some soft materials. Wrapping your items can increase their chance of staying intact. Those items often include glassware, mirrors, and electronics like TV. So, make sure that you put them away from big and bulky items when you move.

No matter how many friends or members of the family you have to help you move, sometimes that is not enough to organize a smooth move. Professional experience and equipment are sometimes necessary when it comes to the most difficult items to relocate long distance. Book your movers now, you will have fewer things to worry about when the time to move comes.
