Moving with Pets

All My Sons Moving & Storage in Florida

Now that you’ve decided to move to Pensacola, it’s time to get everything in place to make sure everything goes well while relocating. These plans may include contacting our Panhandle Florida movers to help you move into your new home, changing your address with various places of importance, scheduling a Wi-Fi installation, and so on. All these tasks may cause you to be very stressed, which is no surprise since moving is considered the third most stressful life event after the death of a loved one and divorce.1 If you have pets, this may also be a concern due to the fact they tend to get overexcited when there’s a sudden change to their environment. Not to worry as our Pensacola movers can tell you all about moving with pets into a new home.


Preparing for the Move

Make sure to get everything in line for your pet weeks in advance to avoid missing important details for your furry friend. When moving with pets, the first thing to do is give the veterinarian a visit. Re-up any prescriptions needed that can last well after the move and consult with the vet about rabies laws by state2 if moving long-distance with pets. You can also ask for recommendations in Pensacola to ensure your pet receives reliable care after moving to Pensacola.


After the vet visit, prepare an overnight kit for your four-legged friend to maintain some normalcy for them. This kit should include items like grooming tools, food, toys, a pooper scooper, cat litter, and treats. Having such items for the road should reduce your pet’s moving anxiety along the way.


Moving with Pets Across Country

Now that the big day has finally arrived, it’s time to pay extra attention to your pet’s behavior during the move. Just before our Pensacola long-distance movers arrive to help you move, have your pet stay at doggy daycare or stay with a veterinarian to keep them away from the chaotic moving activity. Animals tend to get stressed in these types of situations, causing them to misbehave and most likely escape through the front door.


While the experts securely pack your valuables as part of our Pensacola packing services, call any hotels along the route to confirm if they’re animal-friendly. Your furry friend will need to take a break from the closed-in cabin of the car and sleeping indoors can help them stay calm.


Home Sweet Home

While moving into the new home, you’ll most likely feel relieved to finally relax, but your furry friend may still feel agitated. Help them get acclimated to the new home by designating an area in the home for them with their toys, their bed, and maybe even a blanket to give them a sense of comfort, something familiar.


Once our moving company in Pensacola gets you fully moved in, explore the neighborhood with your pet by taking walks. During the walk, let them sniff around their surroundings to help familiarize themselves with the environment.
