We know that moving house can be a stressful time for your furry friends, which is why w have compiled a list of our top tips for making their move as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

Move your pets last

Leave your pet in the smallest bedroom until it's time to go, and move them as the very last thing. Keeping them in a room will help to keep them calm and our removals team will work around this for you.

Plugging in a pheromone diffuser could also help to keep them calm during this time.

Take them in the car

Once it's time to leave, transport your pets in the car with you, rather than in the removals lorry. Whilst dogs are generally pretty good at adapting to their new surroundings, cats can struggle a bit more.

Warn the new owners of the house you're leaving that your cat may return and kindly ask them not to feed it or fuss it if it does.

Keep them in for a little while

Keeping your cat under house arrest for 2 weeks once you're moved in may feel cruel, but it will help them to feel safe in their new environment. 

When letting them out, make sure they are microchipped in case they become lost and cannot find their way home.
