-- With thousands of people relocating every year in the US, and with many of those traveling with pets, it is essential to learn how to best transport your pets so that their move can be as smooth a transition as yours. PODS Phoenix is making things a little more streamlined for you by providing some helpful travel tips.
Here are a few tips to accommodate a pet-friendly move:
- Create a smooth transition – Moving can be stressful, and when you're moving with pets, it's crucial to reduce their anxiety as much as possible by ensuring their health is in good shape and their crates are loaded with necessities such as food and water.
- Avoid moving on a holiday – The longer you are stuck in traffic, the longer your pet is stuck in their crate. By selecting low-traffic days to travel, you can ensure that your pet is happy and your trip is stress-free.
- Comfort is key – Long hours traveling is enough to aggravate anyone, let alone our furry friends. Make sure you pack their crates with cozy blankets and some of their favorite stuffed toys to keep them comfortable and content during the move.
- Make extra room – Make sure that you only pack the items you need and donate or pitch the ones you've hoarded over the years. Not only will this give you more room for your pet during the move, but it also gives you a fresh start at your new home.
