-- According to Spots.com, 67% of homeowners have pets in America. This is why it is essential to learn how to best transport your pets so their move can be as smooth a transition as yours. PODS® Tucson is making things a little easier for you by providing some simple travel tips to get you going.
Here are a few tips to help accommodate a pet friendly move:
- Create a stress-free transition – When you are moving with pets, it is crucial to reduce their anxiety as much as possible by ensuring their health is in good condition and their crates encompass all the necessities such as food and water.
- Avoid holiday travel – Roads tend to be much busier during holiday months and the longer you're stuck in traffic, the longer your pet remains in their crate. By eliminating any busy holidays from your travel itinerary, you can ensure your pet is happy and your trip is as smooth as possible.
- Create a comfortable environment – Long travel hours can get our furry friends worked up and anxious. Make sure their crates are packed with cozy blankets, and some of their favorite stuffed toys to keep them comfortable and content during the move.
- Free up space – Make sure that you only pack the necessities and donate or throw out anything you have hoarded over the years. Not only will this free up extra space for your pet during the move, but it also provides you with a fresh start at your new home.
