Just like humans, moving is a major change in the lives of your furry friends. The change in scenery and the time spent traveling to your new destination is often unsettling for pets.
Becker Movers, Rochester's top moving company, takes extra care of the littlest members of your family. Along with their moving services, these experts share tips and advice for making the process seamless for both you and your pets.
Here are some simple tips to consider when moving with pets:
- If you're moving to a new state, check to see if there are special laws related to pets. Half of all states require pet harnesses for dogs during a move. Some counties have laws regarding the amount of pets you can have. Others have regulations on the types of pets that are allowed in a home. To be safe, you'll need to have your pet license within a certain period of time.
- Remember that most professional movers do not move pets. You need to transport pets with you for both safety and security. Cats generally prefer the confines of a crate while traveling and dogs need leashes to stay put. Consider options like pet seat covers, car barriers, or ramps to modify your vehicle.
- Identification is also very important to ensure that your pet is found in case of an emergency. Have them wear a tag that includes your name, phone number, destination address, and contact info of a friend as well. It's safer to have two points of contact in case you're away from your phone.
