How to Move with Pets: Tips from Your Denver Moving Company

Even if you have hired professional Denver moving companies to make the day go smoother, there’s no denying that changing homes can be stressful for everyone. Every family member will likely have had a good amount of time to get themselves mentally prepared for the move except one, your pet. From your pet’s point of view, you are going about life as normal, then one day, moving boxes that familiar possessions are disappearing into are multiplying, and then they are taken all away by strangers. The next thing they know, they are transported to an unfamiliar space with none of the familiar smells or comforts.

Naturally, it’s going to take time for your furry friend to get used to his new home, but there are some things you can do to get everyone through the move more easily.

Moving with Dogs

Though dogs are territorial animals, they are probably the easiest pets to move. Usually, they are more socialized than other pets and are used to going on car rides, vacations sleeping in unfamiliar places, and are generally used to seeing the world and people outside their own backyard. On moving day, the easiest course of action would be to find a friend that the dog knows to dog sit. It is more likely that if a friend had to choose between lugging around heavy boxes and taking your dog to the park or their house for a playdate with their pooch, they’d choose option B without a second thought. If doggie daycare is open that day or has gone to a kennel before, this might also be a good choice. If your pup must be with you on moving day, be sure they are confined and cannot escape in the bustle of things through an open door unnoticed as boxes and furniture are being moved out. This also keeps them safe from being stepped on or tripped over. Once you have arrived at your new home, be sure to unpack Fido’s bed, food, and water dishes, as well as favorite toys as soon as possible. This assures them that life is going on as normal, just in a new space.

Moving with Cats

We usually don’t take cats on outings unless they go to the vet so that they may be more anxiety-ridden than their canine brothers and sisters. If your cat can’t’ go to grandma’s house for the day, keeping the animal confined will prevent escape or injury. If possible, empty a room before moving day and put the kitty’s favorite blanket or bed in there with food, water, and the litter box. There are also plug-in calming pheromone releasers that can cover a small space and ease the day’s stress. On moving day, put your cat in the designated room with a sign on the door that warns everyone that this door should not be opened. After everything has been moved out, you can safely put the cat into a carrier for transport. It’s a good idea to keep their carrier out where they have access to it for a few days before the move so that they can inspect it and get familiar with it.

Once in your new home, confine a cat to one room or a smaller portion of the house for a few days with their comforts and necessities. This will allow them to acclimate slowly and avoid the general chaos of unpacking and setting up a house. After a few days, allow your cat to venture forth from this home base room as they wish, exploring their new surroundings at their own pace.

After a short period of time, every member of the family, including the furry ones, will be enjoying their new space and making the new house feel like home. Take every precaution, and be sure to be properly prepared for your move – on all fronts. Contact Eden’s Moving Services for more helpful tips and advice, like our top 3 moving tips for less stress.

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.
