Long Distance Moving: 3 Pitfalls To Avoid When Moving With Your Pet


Whether you are moving a few blocks away or to another state, moving can be a nightmare for every member of your family, including your pets. You see, pets love familiarity and routine. They are most comfortable in their well-known home and calm when things take the same course daily. The disorganization of a move can scare, demoralize, and confuse them.

Here are three mistakes you should avoid to make the transition less stressful for you and your pets.

1. Not Giving Your Pet Time

DIY move has never been a good idea. And this cannot be more true when you move with your pets. Just like your kids, your pets need your time and attention to feel at ease during the move. With all the packing, carrying, and arranging that comes with a home move, a DIY move means you may not find time for your pets, which could make them stressed and unhappy. A trustworthy moving company can take care of every aspect of your long-distance move so that you can have enough time to feed, walk and pet your pets as you prepare them for the transition.

2. Letting Your Pets Stay Loose on Moving Day

Pets are curious. When they see packing boxes, they will want to know what is there. Unfortunately, pets do not understand 'handle with care,' and they might start playing with your delicate items, leading to costly damage. Even worse, packing boxes may fall on them, leading to severe injuries. You do not want to rush to the vet center on your moving day. To ensure your pets are safe from injuries and possessions are safe from damage, enlist the services of an experienced moving company so that you can focus on taking care of your family and pets.

3. Not Transporting Your Pets Safely

Your pets must be in the right carrier and place during a long-distance move. But do you have the recommended carriers for your pets? If you put them in the wrong carrier, they might escape during the move. And if you put them together with other items, they could be injured or killed if items fall on them during the move. Let a moving company that can guarantee your pets' safety handle your move. They have moved other pets before and know the laws regarding their safe transportation.

Your pets deserve a smooth transition. And now that you understand the importance of moving services in ensuring your pets have a stress-free relocation, do not hesitate to hire a reliable long-distance moving company. They will strive to ensure the move is less overwhelming for you and your pets.

Advice for Making Difficult Moves Less Stressful

I still remember when I moved into my very first apartment after I graduated from college. All I had to move were a few boxes of my belongings across town and then wait for the furniture company to drop off my new furniture! I soon found out that the longer you live in one place, the more "stuff" you end up having. The next time I moved, I remember feeling very overwhelmed and didn't have anyone go give me good moving advice. I know there are other people like I was and facing a difficult move without a lot of people to help. I want to help make everyone's moves easier by making a blog with my moving tips. I plan to post new advice frequently, so come back when you need moving help!
