Moving with Pets to a New Home

Moving to a new home is stressful enough for people, but what about our pets? Moving with pets to a new home can create anxiety in animals as they acclimate to their new environment. At Copperstate Moving we want to make relocating as easy on your trusted companions as possible by providing a few tips for moving with pets and preparing pets for a move. 

What to Do with Pets When Moving 

Make it a calming moving experience for your best furry friend by following our short guide on what to do with pets when moving. Our Phoenix moving company is no stranger to moving with pets and wants to ensure your pet has a tranquil moving experience they’ve been prepared for. 

1.  Prepare An Overnight Pet Kit 

Whether you are moving across the country with pets or simply a few blocks away, be sure to prepare an overnight pet kit for your companion(s). Our Goodyear movers note that the moving process can get a little hectic so you will want to make sure you are fully prepared to move with your pet and have all the materials they may need during the transition. Prepare in your overnight pet kit enough pet food, litter, toys, grooming tools, and treats to ensure your pet is comfortable during the first few days in their new environment while you begin unpacking. Preparing pets for a move can help ease the stress of moving on you and your pet. 

2. Keep Your Pet Away from the Action 

To help reduce your pet’s stress during a move, we suggest keeping them away from the action and in a quiet room. Be sure to check on your pet regularly during the move and be sure that they have enough food and water. Our Surprise movers suggest maintaining your pet’s daily routine as much as possible if you are unable to find a friend or kennel to pet sit for the day. Moving with pets can create unwanted stress and anxiety, so try to make them feel as comfortable as possible during this weird transition. 

3. Contact the Vet

This is especially important when moving across the country with pets, but even if you’re moving locally, you will want to make sure to check in with the vet prior to moving. Our local Phoenix movers suggest asking your vet if they can recommend a veterinarian in your new neighborhood. When moving with pets, make sure you have all their records and important prescription medication they may require during the transition.

4. Update Your Pet’s Information 

After moving with your pets, you will want to update all their information in any important documents. This includes updating their tags or microchip with their new home address. A common mistake when moving with pets is forgetting to change the address on your pet’s paperwork, so our Peoria movers recommend updating your pet’s information as quickly as possible.
