Tips When Moving Your Dog or Cat

Muscular Moving Men can move a lot of items, including heavy furniture and equipment, art installations, office fixtures, and more. One thing we can’t put in our truck is your dog or your cat.  

The Part Where We State the Obvious 

Even if they’re secured in a kennel and it’s a short trip, the moving truck is no place for the four-legged members of your family. While we take the utmost care to pack the truck in a way that items won’t shift during transport, we still can’t risk anything falling on your pet. Besides, you can imagine it’s pretty scary in a dark truck with no fresh air, not to mention hazardous to your pet’s health. 

Secure Pets On Moving Day 

What may be less obvious as you approach the big day and have a trillion things on your mind is the need to keep your pets securely away from the movers. If you have a dog or cat in the yard, or behind a closed door in your house, let the movers know so that they don’t accidentally let your pet loose. Dogs get stressed out by a lot of coming and going. You don’t want anyone tripping over your cat, especially while carrying items. And the last thing you want is to have to chase down your fugitive husky when you’re trying to get everything out the door. 

Don’t Forget the Pet Essentials 

Update your pet’s tags with your new address before the move. Add switching to the new tags to your moving day to do list, so that if they somehow get loose, anyone who finds your pet will know where to reach you. You already know to pack your cell phone charger and daily medications in easy reach. Remember to put the pet food, bowls, and pet medications in easy reach too.
