Denver Movers Share Tips for Moving with Pets During the Winter

Moving in winter can be tough. There’s ice on the roads, inclement weather to worry about, and cold temperatures to insulate against. However, making sure they stay safe and comfortable throughout the process can be even more difficult when you move with pets. Though your Colorado moving company will do its best to make sure its activities don’t impact your animals negatively, there are still some things you can do to keep your pet happy and safe during a winter-time move. Here are a few tips to make it as simple as possible.

Give Them a Warm and Cozy Shelter

During periods of stress, pets do best when they have a place to retreat to. This can be a bed in the corner of the room, a dark corner of the closet, or a favorite carpet patch next to the fireplace. Wherever your pet likes to curl up and spend time when everyone else is busy running around is the best place to set up a temporary retreat. Make the space comfortable and accessible to them when you’re packing up. Make sure to include their favorite toys so they have something constructive to do with their time. When animals get stressed and don’t have an outlet, they often become destructive.

Keep Them Away from the Action

During the summer, your pets are best left outside with water and shade. However, during the winter, the cold temperatures can make it hard to leave your furry family members in the yard. Instead, find a place indoors to keep them away from the dollies, heavy boxes, and moving team. After the machines have been removed or a bathroom where the movers won’t need to go, the laundry room is a wonderful option. Your pets will be out of the way and out of the weather, so you can focus on the move rather than worrying about their safety and wellbeing.

Consider a Boarding Facility

Moving can take a toll on your pet’s emotional state and stress level. Rather than leaving them to face the stress head-on, consider separating them from the situation entirely. Board them for a few days at the vet’s office or a designated boarding facility. There, they’ll receive plenty of care, attention, and playtime without having to watch the house get packed up around them. This can make a move go more quickly and helps reduce the amount of stress you feel during the move. Instead of splitting your attention between the movers and your pets, you’ll be able to focus on directing the crew, finding the perfect place for your furniture, and get the basics set up before bringing your furry best friend home.

We know that moving with pets can be a challenge, but as long as you’re prepared, handling a winter-time move with your furry family members doesn’t have to be stressful. If you’re planning on moving this winter, contact Eden’s Moving & Storage to schedule an estimate today. Our experienced and insured movers will take care of your belongings, and we’ll do our best to make sure the move is as simple and fast as possible.

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.
