Top three tips for moving house with pets

While many people will insist that a house is not truly a home without one or two pets, when it comes to moving house, doing it with your furry (or feathered, or scaly!) companions can be quite a challenge. As such, it is vital that you take your pets into consideration when you move. Here are a few tips from the experts at Storage World, who have heard countless stories of the difficulties of moving with pets, and have learnt some of the tricks of the trade.

1. On moving day, your behaviour will affect your pets

It’s well known that pets can pick up on your feelings, as well as the general atmosphere in the room – if you are stressed, then your pet is likely to notice this, and will become stressed and upset too. As such, it is vital that you remain calm and collected throughout the moving day, to reassure your animals that nothing is wrong.

2. Stick to a routine

While you may be taking your pet to a completely new environment, it is important to stick to the routine you have established for them, to maintain the status quo as much as possible. By keeping their walking and feeding times the same, it will help them to acclimatise better to their new surroundings without any additional confusion.

3. Accompany pets during the transport process

Instead of letting someone else take your pets while you attempt to direct the removal van, it is essential for the wellbeing and happiness of your pets that you accompany them during the whole removal and transportation process. Not only will your presence calm them down, but they will find it comforting to have your familiar smell around them when going somewhere new.

Along with knowing how to make the process of moving with pets easier, our experts at Storage World also know how much easier moving house can be by using a storage unit. Not only can you move items in stages, but you can also declutter your house when downsizing. A storage unit can have many other helpful benefits when moving house, so don’t hesitate to contact our experts (https://storageworld.co.uk/contact/) for more advice and additional information!

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

100% Recommended

100% recommend Storage World. The storage lockers are well priced, secure and very clean. The facility is well set up to make loading and unloading very straight forward. Jeni on the desk was so increddibly helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were well set up and happy. Thanks very much to all at Storage World and particularly Jeni!

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
