Moving Tips for Moving with Pets

We love our pets don't we? There are a few things to take into consideration when it comes to animals, pets, and moving tips and moving household belongings around the pets.

Dogs and Moving

Lets start with dogs and moving. Most of the time dogs are pretty laid back, but some are very protective when strangers enter the house. If your pets are protective, it's a good idea to secure the dogs to an outside location, if they are outdoor dogs, or a dog carrier during the loading and unloading. Dogs can be very excited, and have a tendency to jump all over the movers when they enter the house, thus slowing the moving process down a little. A Bathroom can work well for securing animals. Simply put a sign on the door saying do not open "Pets Inside" and the movers will respect that area.

Cats and Moving

cats and moving are a completely different story. They do not like change and become very scared when things start moving out of the house. Very few cats are ok with this process. I've seen so many cats run out of the house never to return, or return days later. Best practice with moving and managing cats is to lock them in a bathroom, or put them into cat carriers before we show up. The second we open that door you never know how they will respond, and we won't be able to open and close the door every time we go in and out of the house. The doors are propped open for fast, efficient access.

All other animals like snakes, lizards, fish, turtles, must be handled by the owner/shipper. We do move the cages, and the aquariums, after they are secured and empty of water, rocks, etc.
