Not only is moving stressful on you, but it is also traumatic for your pets. You may not realise it, but relocating to a new home can take a massive toll on your animal’s well being. It is essential to choose a moving company that can ease you from that pressure and allows you to concentrate on the things that mean most to you. We’re here to help you with some tips when moving with pets.

Familiarise yourselves

Try and take your pets for a walk or drive in the new town or area that you’re relocating to. This will help them adjust and familiarise themselves with the space and the transportation on moving day. If the property is already vacant, take your dog for a sniff around their new garden and put their food and water bowls where you would place them once you have fully moved in, this will help them feel safe and secure in their new environment.

Distract them from the chaos 

A move can be chaotic with new people operating in and out of your house, furniture moved, and boxes loaded. This is an excellent time to keep your pets busy and away from all the activity happening around them. Take them to a more secluded place, such as a friend’s house or your local kennel.

Make sure your new home is pet friendly 

Your pet’s safety is the number one priority when moving into a new home. Take a moment to evaluate the house. Ensure all fencing is in good condition and secure, remove any plants that could harm them, and make sure there are adequate amounts of food and water on their arrival to their new home. Bringing along their favorite toys and some treats will also  help soften the situation.
