A Moving Company's Top Tips on Pet Relocation, Ewa, Hawaii

Preparing for a residential move can be an exciting, hectic process for everyone in the household. If you’re bringing along four-legged family members, the professionals at Aloha International Moving Services have a few tips to keep your pets safe and comfortable during the process. Based in Kapolei, HI, the moving company provides area residents with moving, packing, and storage solutions to take the stress out of relocating.

Below, the trained team at this local moving company shares useful suggestions for transporting animals:

  • Check Government Rules & Regulations: If you’re moving to a different state or country, check government agencies’ rules and regulations regarding pet transportation. To reduce the risk of foreign animals spreading disease, most international moves require pets to remain quarantined for up to six months. Keep this in mind when planning for overseas travel. Although rules vary throughout the U.S., most states require pet owners to harness dogs and make sure all animals are up to date with their shots. 
  • Kapolei Hawaii moving companyKeep Pets Close: You should never transport pets in the moving truck. Not only is it uncomfortable for your furry friends, but also, most moving companies won’t relocate animals because of safety concerns and liability issues. Instead, carry your pets with you on the plane or in the car to your new home. They’ll physically be more comfortable, and seeing you will help calm their nerves. 
  • Invest in Carriers: If you plan to fly to the destination, some airlines let passengers store pets in the cabin, while others have designated areas in the luggage compartment. Speak with your air travel provider to determine how to proceed with the arrangements. Whether they’re staying with you or below, invest in durable carriers for your pets. Most airlines also have guidelines regarding what size you need.
