Moving House with pets

When moving house with pets, there are several things to consider:

  1. Make sure your new home is pet-friendly, and that any lease or rental agreement allows for pets.
  2. Plan for your pet’s transportation to the new location, whether it’s by car or by hiring a pet-moving service.
  3. Consider your pet’s emotional well-being during the move. Pets can become stressed and anxious during a move, so it’s important to keep their routine as normal as possible.
  4. Update your pet’s identification tags and microchip information with your new address and contact information.
  5. Research veterinarians and pet-related services in your new area before you move, so you can have them ready in case of an emergency.
  6. Make sure your pet’s vaccinations and medical records are up-to-date, and bring them with you during the move.
  7. Consider boarding your pet or finding a pet sitter for the day of the move to reduce stress on them.
  8. Pack a pet-specific moving box with essentials such as food, water, medications, toys, and bedding.
  9. Familiarise your pet with their new home before you move in, by taking them for visits or leaving a blanket or toy with familiar scent in the new home.
