Pet owners should take their pets' needs into consideration during your home removal. You should ensure that all the necessary arrangements have been made before the house removalists arrive so that they are happy in their new dwelling.

Transfer Your Pets’ Veterinary Records Before Moving

Make sure you find a good veterinarian in your new location and transfer your pets' records there before you move. As a result, your new veterinarian will be prepared in case of an emergency. Get recommendations from your veterinarian or removal company.

Get Your Pets Used to Crates Before Moving Day

There's a good chance you'll need a crate for your pets when you move to your new home. It is important to acclimate them to being in a crate as early as possible.

Crate training websites suggest owners begin by feeding their pets in their crates so that they associate crates with positive experiences. Slowly increase their crate time. You can reward them with a treat or playtime after they've finished their crate time. This is especially important on long distance moves when considering interstate removals.

Once they're comfortable in the crate, take them for a short walk or drive. Be sure to reward them afterward. Soon, they'll be on their way to their new home.

Label Boxes with Their New Location’s Name

It is crucial that you label boxes with your own belongings with the names of the rooms they should be placed in in your new home, as well as the belongings of your pets. Afterward, you will be able to locate them easily when unpacking since the removalists will put them where they belong.

Here are a few free moving boxes that you can use for your belongings and those of your pets. If you need boxes for moving, make sure to ask because those made specifically for moving are sturdier than the ones your neighbours throw away.

Hire a Pet Sitter on Moving Day

It's a good idea to hire a pet sitter to watch your pets on moving day while the furniture removalists are at work. You may stress out your pets by removing their belongings from the house. Since they don't know who will be moving your furniture, they can't tell you who they are.

Pets underfoot are a removalist's worst nightmare when hauling furniture or other heavy items. It isn't easy to balance your load while trying to avoid stepping on Fluff’s tail. Your pet might also be injured during the process. Better to hire a pet sitter to keep both the removalists and your pets out of harm’s way.

During the move, carry a few days' worth of pet supplies.

Bring enough food, water, and other supplies for your pet when you leave your old home, so you won't have to search through boxes when you arrive at your new home. Feeding times can then be kept right on schedule for your pets.

Find Pet-Friendly Accommodations for Longer Trips

Interstate moves require a night or two on the road to reach your new home. Check if your hotel is pet-friendly before you reserve a room. Get recommendations from your veterinarian or friends. Make sure they are always leashed while potty breaking and walking. Having just moved into a new home, they may try to run away back to their former residence. When your interstate removalists unload your belongings into your new home, find a quiet place for your pet to stay or hire a pet sitter.

Introduce Your Pets to Their New Neighbourhood

After you've settled into your new home, walk your pets around their new neighbourhood once you've arrived. It is okay for them to sniff from time to time. The new neighbours are getting to know each other that way.

Especially if you have pets in your household, you should begin to prepare for your move as soon as you know you're moving.
