Moving with Pets

Written by Posted On Thursday, 17 March 2016 10:54

Moving can be stressful, especially when you add pets into the mix.  If you are planning on buying a home, you may want to think about how you are going to manage the move with your fur friends in tow.  Here are some tips we find helpful for you homebuyers with pets by your side.

Proper ID

Prior to moving day, ensure that your pets have proper collars and ID tags with your contact information.  If you want to be extra safe, microchipping is a viable backup option if your pet happens to lose their collar.  Remember, moving can be hectic regardless of how careful you are.

Visit the Vet

Is your pet prone to car sickness? It happens. To prevent any issues, you may want to squeeze in a visit to your vet before the big move.  Your vet can provide you with the proper medication and provide tips on how to alleviate the situation.

Consider Distance

Moving down the block is one thing, but if you're driving across the country for your big move you may have to do some planning.  Before you move, look up pet friendly hotels and make reservations ahead of time.  You don't want to be stuck on the road with your pets and nowhere to sleep!

Keep Calm

Before you hit the road, try to keep your pets in an enclosed and quiet area so that they aren't overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of the pre-move activities.  If your pets are startled before you take off this can set things off on a bad note.


One of the most important things about moving with pets is ensuring that they are safe.  Keep smaller pets in well-ventilated pet carriers and large dogs on leashes.  Stress from a move can cause pets to take off running, so try to keep them close and under control.

Keep these tips in mind before you make the big move with your pets.  Taking the proper precautions now can help make your move as smooth as possible!
