“Before you get a dog, you can’t quite imagine what living with one might be like; afterward, you can’t imagine living any other way.” – Caroline Knapp
Relocating to a new home (in a new state or even the same city) is often exciting; however; it can also be incredibly overwhelming for you and your pets. In fact, it is vital to be cognisant of the fact that it is highly likely your pets will also be anxious during the move as well as the time building up to the actual moving day.
Therefore, in order to ensure that your move happens without a hitch, here are several tips for moving home with your pets:
Find a pet-friendly suburb
Not all neighbourhoods are pet-friendly. Some homes are built close to major transport hubs. Other suburbs consist mainly of apartment blocks with very little space to walk a pet. And thirdly, not all homes have yards big enough to accommodate one or more pets. Therefore, if you intend moving your pets to your new residence, it is vital that you search for a home that is pet-friendly.
If you own a dog, you need to ensure that there is plenty of space for him to run or go for a walk every day. On the other hand, if your pet is a cat, you need to find a space where he can climb and run around.
Choose the right removalists
Contract a professional home interstate removals Sydney to help you plan and execute your move will help simplify and speed up the process from start to finish. They will pack, load, transport, unload, and unpack your possessions quickly and efficiently. This will help reduce your stress levels, and by inference, your pet’s stress levels as well.
Make proper traveling arrangements for your pet
This point is particularly applicable if your new home is a long way from your existing home. If you (and your pets) are travelling by car, it’s important to book pet-friendly hotel accommodation before you start out on your journey.
Furthermore, it’s worth spending an extra night or two along the way so that your pet isn’t cooped up in a crate for long stretches at a time. Pets can only go a limited period of time before they need to use the litter box (in the case of a cat) or the grass (in the case of a dog).
What to do when arriving at your new home
The good news is that your professional removalists Sydney Inner West will have liaised with you to ensure that they arrive at your destination on the day that you can move into your new home.
Unload your pets from the car when you arrive, and put them in a secure area where they cannot break out, or get under the movers’ feet. As mentioned above, pets are easily stressed out when they have to move to a new home. Consequently, they might want to stay with you the whole time, or they might try and break out to go back to their old house; thereby, getting hurt or lost in the process.
