The Law Says About Moving With Pets

Moving to a new home can be stressful for anyone. Even your pets will not enjoy the process especially as you have to bring ‘strangers’ onboard to help you move. As a pet owner, you will need to take extra measures to ensure that your furry family member is safe and comfortable. When it comes to moves, long distance moves are the most difficult on pets because they usually involve long drives or flights where your pets’ movement is restricted. Fortunately, there’s hope. The move doesn’t have to be difficult on your pets. When you work with a pet-friendly moving company your pet won’t have to face the trouble that usually comes with moving.

Let us take a look at some of the legal requirements for moving with your pet.

Keep them healthy

The first requirement for moving with your pet is to make sure that the animal is healthy throughout the time when you will be on the move. This is also convenient for you because a sick pet is going to need more attention from you at a time when you have a lot on your mind.

Keep them up to date with their vaccinations

Different countries will have different vaccination requirements for pets before gaining entry. For example, before entering the United States, all dogs coming from a country where rabies is present should have proof they have had a rabies vaccination. This means that dogs younger than 4 months old from these countries will not be allowed entry because dogs cannot be vaccinated until they are 3 months old.

Talk to your airline

Some airlines will allow you to bring your dog with you into the cabin while others will have different arrangements for transporting your pets. Call them early to find out whether you will be allowed to fly with your pet near you and what options are available if this is not the case.

Movers Across The State

Have a pet carrier

If you are going to take a flight together, a pet carrier will come in handy. Make sure that your dog fits comfortably in the pet carrier. If you will be allowed to fly with your pet, you should also contact your airline to find out if they have special requirements for the pet carrier. Some airlines have specific size requirements for pet crates or carriers to ensure that everything fits nicely under the seat.

Restrict your pet while in the car

Don’t allow your pets to roam freely in the car. They can be a distraction to the driver and end up causing an accident. Make sure that you have seatbelts for all pets on board or a net to ensure that their movement is restricted.

Although you’ll be required to do some more work to meet the pet travel requirements, moving with pets does not have to be a difficult thing. Do not forget to check that you are getting pet friendly moving services from a licensed moving company.

★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

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.
