Denver Movers Share 6 Tips for Safely Moving with Pets

Moving to a new home is always exciting. After all, there are so many sights and sounds to take in, and the promise of new adventures is enough to make the entire family excited except, perhaps, for the pets. In fact, moving can be incredibly stressful for our four-legged friends. Here are a few tips from an experienced Colorado moving company to help you and your furry family members successfully transition to a new home.

Start Packing Ahead of Time

Pets pick up on their humans’ stress easily, and if you’re pulling an all-nighter trying to get everything ready for the movers in the morning, they’ll know. The last thing you want is for your pet to be a nervous wreck come moving day. Instead, try to start packing at least a week ahead of time. This way, you’ll be less stressed and frazzled come moving day, and your pet will feel the same.

Pack a Pet Bag

Just like you, your pets have certain essentials that need to be kept out during a move. Pack a bag or box of their daily necessities with items like medications, food, their favorite toys, and anything else your pet needs daily. Make sure this box makes it to the family car rather than the moving truck so your pets will have everything they need on the journey to the new property.

Contact Your Vet

Whether you’re moving to a completely new city or moving down the road, it’s always a good idea to talk to your vet. If you know that your pet has anxiety or dislikes traveling, they’ll be able to provide you with techniques to mitigate their stress. If you’re moving out of town, they’ll be able to print off your pet’s medical records and may be able to help you choose a new vet should their office be too far away.

Update Your Information

Microchipping is a great way to ensure that your pet finds their way home if they get lost. However, it’s only good if you keep the information up-to-date. Take the time to enter the new address into your pet’s microchip provider’s database. While this may not eliminate stress for them, it will help keep them safe should something happen during the move.

Keep Pets Separated from the Moving Company

When the movers arrive at the old house, make sure your pet is secure and kept away from the activity. Pick a room that’s already been packed up or secure them in a kennel inside the house. This way, they’ll be out the way of the movers and less likely to get hurt in the process.

Move Your Pet Last

While it may seem convenient to leave your pet at your new property, it’s best to keep them with you until the movers are ready to transport your stuff. By letting your pet stay with you and your family, you’ll help reduce their stress and keep them safe while the movers are unloading at your new home.

We believe that moving should be an exciting experience at Eden’s Moving rather than a stressful occasion. Whether you’re moving across the street or north to Fort Collins, spare yourself the trouble and let our professional movers handle the packing.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
