Advice from Reliable Movers on How to Safely Move with Pets
Your move is fast approaching, the planning and packing is all done, but what are you going to do about your pets? Moving can be a stressful experience for your furry, feathered, or scaly friends, but that is why Victory Van Corporation's reliable movers are here to share with you our tips on taking care of your pets during a move.
Some moves are short local distances where your pet can ride in the car, but what happens when you are moving cross-country or long-distance and that might be too much for your pet? Here are Victory Van Corporation’s reliable movers’ tips on moving with pets.
- Car Travel - Some pets are more than happy to jump into your car for a ride, but others are not. If you have a pet who is not accustomed to riding in a vehicle, take some time to prepare and condition them to this new environment. Try to take your pet for a short ride now and then to gradually get them used to the sounds and movement.
- Identification - During the move, there is a lot to worry about. Losing your pet is definitely something you don’t want to happen but during the rush of a move, this is a real concern for many pet owners. Make sure your pet has proper identification and rabies vaccination information up to date on their collar.
- Travel Kit - When moving, your pet will still need food, water, any medications they need and more. Besides the basics, don’t forget the leash and pack some comforts in the car such as your pet’s favorite toy, and blankets.
- Portable Kennel - Another option is keeping your pet in a portable carrier or kennel. This is ideal for smaller dogs or cats who might wander around the vehicle too much. This is also a good option while stopped at rest stops or gas stations along the way.
With these tips, you are ready to being your move, with your family and pets in tow. Our reliable movers’ goal is to take the stress out of your move. Follow these steps to see your pet safely to your next location.
