Moving can be stressful, and even if you hire the best moving companies, Perth residents may find the process challenging, particularly if you have pets. Fortunately, as specialists in removals, Perth based Emmanuel Transport has some tips and tricks to make it easier to move with your pets.
Create a Schedule
While a schedule can be helpful with any move, when you have pets, it’s crucial to map out every part of your transition. When you plan everything ahead of time, it will offer greater time to focus on your pets and their wellbeing. Once you have a schedule, you can plan all those small details and concentrate on supporting your pets as they make the transition to your new home.
Visit the New Area
Moving to an unfamiliar place can be scary for adults, but it can be terrifying for an animal. Not only are they unsure why everything is being moved and packed away in their home, but they are also then taken out of their habitat. So, if it is possible, try taking some trips to your new home and new neighbourhood before moving day. Walk your dog around the area, so they can start to feel familiar with their new surroundings. This means that instead of being taken to a strange place, they are going somewhere that they can recognise as welcoming and safe.
Plan Your Moving Day
Even if you are moving within your local area, you need to plan your moving day. You need to minimise the amount of time your pets will spend in transit, to reduce the potential stress and upset. Pets tend to get nervous and excited on moving day, and you won’t want to clean up any accidents in your car as you try and settle into your new home. If you’re moving a long distance, plan out your stops with pet-friendly venues. This needs to be considered in advance, or you could end up trying to sleep in your vehicle, sharing the space with a restless animal.
Keep Your Pets With You
Even if you choose the best company offering home removals Perth pet owners will find that the move will be less stressful if they keep pets with them. Remember, you are the whole world for your pet, so you are a comfort to your pet in times of stress and anxiety. Allowing your pets to travel to your new home with you will provide reassurance and minimise anxiety.
If travelling with your pets is not possible, be sure to choose specialist movers. Perth pet owners will find there are removalists who specialise in pet transport and will ensure that your furry friend enjoys the best conditions during their journey to your new home. An experienced pet transport company will ensure that your pet is monitored carefully and any medical or dietary requirements are taken care of, so your pet receives the utmost care.
