Seller Moving Tips – #4

Moving Pets

To make moving to a new home easy on your pet, take note of these helpful suggestions:

  • If you are transporting dogs or cats in your car, be sure to bring food, water, a leash so you can let the pet out, and newspaper or sheets to protect your seats. You will need to make frequent stops along the way.
  • Cover cages with a cloth when transporting hamsters, birds, and other small animals to help keep them calm and quiet. Have food and water available for them as well.
  • If you are flying and plan to transport your pet in the baggage compartment, you will need a health certificate from your vet, a container than complies with airline regulations, tranquilizers to give to your pet just before heading off to the airport and a cloth with your scent to comfort the pet in-flight.
  • Moving fish can be difficult and put the fish at risk. Consult with your local pet store for recommendations on how to move them.
