What You Need To Know?

Moving to a new region always causes anxiety. It also leaves you feeling stressed. The transition may get complicated where you have a pet involved. You may not know it, but animals also do get stressed and panicky; they need special attention during the move. Be sure to hire a moving firm that has experience in the handling of pets.

Here are other tips you should follow:

Make an appointment with your vet

A few days before departure, book a visit to the vet to have the pet checked and prepped for the journey ahead. Inform the vet of where you intend to relocate.

Also, inquire on items that your animal companion may need. You could also obtain contacts of a vet in your new locality. Have your regular vet hand over your pet’s health records.

Pet movement regulations

Regulations exist in every state that controls animal movement. These rules also affect animals kept as pets. Familiarize yourself with the pet transportation procedure in the state of exit as well as the one you are going to reside.

Act normally

Animals such as dogs and cats are highly intelligent. They can sense when changes are about to take place. To avoid overstressing them, act as if nothing will change. For example, plan your packing in such a way that you put things in boxes slowly over a period. Do not pack all your items in one day.

Obtain new tags

Since you are moving to a new location, have someone make unique IDs for your pet. These should contain details of your new area and a phone number. For pets with identification microchips, update your contact details with the service provider.

Have Pet Photos Ready

Have pet photos ready

Take pictures of your pet and have them available on your phone. You could also email them to yourself. Even have a hard copy in your possession. At times, things do not go as planned and your beloved animal may get lost. If that happens, your mover can be able to help you in seeking assistance.

Travel in the same vehicle

On move day, travel with your pet in the same car. It reassures them of your care and concern. For cats, let the cage stay nearby, but for dogs, you could leash them in the back seat. In order to make this possible, make early purchases of pet carriers and leashes. Let these items stay near the animal so they can get used to seeing them.

Companionship with pets enriches your life and while moving is inevitable, the experience should not affect that relationship. A medical examination keeps their health in check while getting acquainted with movement regulations ensures you are not caught unawares. Acting rationally prevents the animal from going into a panic. Change identification tags way ahead, carry photos and be in the same vehicle unless you are traveling by air. Having all these things taken care of in advance ensures that all goes well without a hitch.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
