While you may be making plans to hire a moving company to help you with your move, you will still need to do a decent amount of work to make sure the move goes smoothly. This is especially true when you own several pets, as you will be responsible for getting them through the process.
In this situation, you can let movers handle tasks such as packing and driving while you can focus on changing addresses, moving jobs, and taking care of your pets.
Making an appointment for a standard checkup for all your pets is worthwhile because you want to make sure that they are all healthy. If you know that some of your pets get stressed when their situation changes drastically, you may want to consider getting medication to calm them down.
Also, this is the perfect time to get all your pets updated on vaccinations so that you will have an easy time getting them licensed as soon as you move to your new home.
While medication is something that can make your pets feel comfortable in some situations, you may be able to keep them comfortable in other ways. For instance, you can make sure that your pets always have your worn clothes and their toys nearby throughout the moving process. This is important to plan out and execute as scent plays a huge role in keeping your pets comfortable.
If you are not going to be driving the moving truck, you need to decide whether you are going to drive your own vehicle or find another mode of transportation and let movers hitch your car. An excellent idea is to take your own car since you will find it easier to accommodate your pets.
For instance, their scent may already be all over the car if they have spent time inside it over the past few months. Also, you may not mind putting their furniture and toys inside the car to increase the strength of their scent and help to keep them relaxed for the entire drive.
As soon as you arrive at the new house, you will already have most of what you need to set up a single bedroom where you can put all your pets so that they do not become stressed.
Following these tips and hiring movers will help you enjoy a smooth move with your family including your pets. Contact a company like Riley Moving & Storage for more help with your move.
