Tips From Our Movers
Moving can be stressful for anyone, including your furry family members. Pets rely on a consistent routine and environment, and a move can disrupt their sense of stability. As you plan your move with movers, it's essential to take steps to ensure your pets feel safe and comfortable during the transition. Here are some tips for moving with pets.
Update your pet's ID tags and microchip information.
Before you move, make sure your pet has an up-to-date ID tag and microchip information. If your pet gets lost during the move, this will make it easier for you to be reunited with them. You can update your pet's microchip information with your veterinarian or the microchip company.
Keep your pet's routine as consistent as possible.
Pets thrive on routine, and a move can disrupt their sense of normalcy. As much as possible, keep your pet's routine consistent during the move. Feed them at the same times, take them for walks at the same times, and keep their sleeping area familiar.
Pack a bag for your pet.
Just like you, your pet will need a few essential items during the move. Pack a bag for your pet that includes food, water, treats, toys, litter (if you have a cat), and any medication they take regularly. This will help your pet feel more at ease during the move.
Consider boarding your pet during the move.
If your pet is anxious or easily stressed, it may be a good idea to board them during the move. This way, they won't be exposed to the chaos of the movers and the packing and unpacking process. Boarding your pet will also ensure they're safe and comfortable during the move.
Introduce your pet to the new home gradually.
Once you arrive at your new home, it's essential to introduce your pet to the space gradually. Give them a small, safe area to explore, and gradually expand their space as they become more comfortable. Make sure their food, water, and litter area is set up as soon as possible.
By following these tips, you can help ensure your pets feel safe and comfortable during your move with movers. Remember, pets need time to adjust to changes, so be patient and give them plenty of love and attention during this transition. Contact us today to get started with your move.
