3 Tips for moving home with your pet – from your local house packing specialists

As more and more home owners use our house packing services in Brisbane, we tend to hear of problems they have gone through when organising their move. One of the most common problems is moving with pets, particularly when you have children and pets!

For example, if you are renting and you have pets, it is important that you make sure that the landlord lets you have pets at your rental accommodation, particularly if you are moving to a unit or a gated community. As Brisbane Removalists, we come across many families who have to give up their pets because their new landlords won’t let them keep pets.

This is only one of the problems pet owners can face when they don’t think ahead. So if you are ready to book your packing services in Brisbane, here are 3 more tips to help you have a trouble free move with your pets.

  1. Visit your vet before house packing: When you start packing up all of your belongings a few days before your move, you won’t have the time to visit your vet (unless it’s for an emergency). The problem is that you will need to take a copy of your pet’s records and vaccinations with you to give to your new vet. So book an appointment with your vet a few weeks ahead of your moving date to be sure that you have everything set.
  2. Pack all your pets belongings: Before your local house packing services arrive in Brisbane, make sure that you set aside a box that is clearly marked for your pet. Inside you can keep all of their bedding and toys together, so that they won’t get lost and are on hand at your new destination. You can also pack a box of their favourite biscuits and their bowls in the box as well. Don’t forget to pack a big bottle of water for the trip as well.
  3. Remember your microchip: Most dogs need to have a microchip ID, so don’t forget to change your contact details for your pet after you move. Otherwise, if your pet does become lost, you might not be contacted!

House packing can become a chore, so it is important that you don’t get so wrapped up in your packing that you forget about the essentials for your pets when you move. If you are looking for Brisbane Removalists and house packing specialists, why not get a quote online today?
