Long-distance moving is a challenge, but it gets even tougher with pets involved. Animals can sense the stress of their humans and also can react to new activities. With good and on-time preparation moving long distance with pets can go smoothly. You can arrange everything with the help of Clearwater moving companies so that your pet and you can have a stress-free relocation. We enlisted a few tips you should have in mind for the welfare of your pets. 

Before the move with your pets

When you decide to move, start with the preparations. However, try not to change your pet’s daily routine. That means regular meals and scheduled walks. Avoid changes in their diets and physical activities days before the move. Sudden changes can upset them, and you don’t need that. On the other hand, they need to get used to a vehicle so you might work on that. You want your pet to be healthy and in the best shape for the move. And that is why you should make an appointment with your vet. Besides that, check with your Tampa movers if you need some approval for your pet.

Visit your vetenerian

Your vet will perform a checkup to make sure your companion is ready for the trip. Also, he’ll gather and hand you over your pet’s medical and vaccination records. Don’t forget to ask for medical supplies if your pet’s condition requires some drugs. It will take some time to find a new vet, so be ready for that possibility. You could ask your vet to recommend his colleague in your new town. Another thing to discuss with your vet is whether your pet needs sedation or Dramamine. Yes, pets can suffer from motion sickness too. Have this in mind when hiring a long distance movers Clearwater FL and arranging the details. 

Get ready for the move with your pets

Sometimes you need to sleep over in a hotel when moving long-distance with your animal companion. It’s always best to book a room in a pet-friendly hotel in advance. Check their rules and regulations, as well. You’ll need confirmation from your vet that your pet is healthy and vaccinated. Remember to pack supplies and essentials for both of you. Make sure you bring enough food for a couple of days, grooming tools, and your pet’s toys. Your cat will need a litter box. But if you’re traveling with your dog, bring his leash. If your pet is taking some medicines, have them with you all the time. The same goes for medical records.

Choose the best travel option for your pet

Your movers will help you move almost everything but not your pets. That part you need to figure out by yourself. Whether you’ll be traveling by plane or by car, always choose what’s the best for your pet. Airlines have different limitations about the size and breed of animals allowed in the plane. So check about that before you decide.

Why Choose Us?

These guys moved me last year. They went above and beyond, beat the prices of any other business in their class, and were an absolute pleasure to deal with. They were FAST. The disassembled and reassembled, and handled special requests. I am about to hit them up again for extra help putting together and moving new furniture. They have a great story to their start-up– saw a gap in the moving business and filled that gap by creating a business with customer care first, under their own close watch. Thanks, guys. I got the worst impressions from the others I called comparatively when I was moving and went with my gut on this. Glad I did.
