Pets are part of our families, and at Heritage Moving & Storage, Inc., we want to make sure that your pet is safe and well cared for on moving day.

As we discussed in the previous post, there are few potential dangers to pets on moving day such as movers with heavy furniture, open doors, and a large, open moving truck. Here are some ideas for how to ensure your pet’s safety on moving day:

1. Ask a family member or friend to keep your pet on moving day.

2. Have a professional keep your pet on moving day. This could include scheduling your pet’s grooming for moving day. Or you could schedule your pet’s vet checkup on moving day. You might also board your pet for the day.

3. If you’d prefer to have your pet close by on moving day, we suggest you put your pet in a bathroom with food and water. Once the movers clear out a bedroom, you can transfer your pet to the bedroom for more space.

We hope this gives you some ideas and helps you with your moving-day planning. If you are hiring a professional moving company, consider Heritage Moving & Storage, Inc.
