If you have pets, they’ll probably be travelling in your car with you, so you’ll need to make sure they have their own space. If you have a dog, you could buy a dog harness to attach to a seat belt. Cats, rabbits and other pets can be more difficult to transport as they might not be used to travelling in a car, so you could do some short practice runs to prepare them for moving day.
If you choose to use a pet carrier, you should make sure that it’s well-ventilated and large enough for your pet to move around in and look out of. Having your pets’ favourite toys and bedding inside could help reduce their stress-levels so that hopefully they’ll feel relaxed enough to fall asleep.
You may want to pack their pet food, bowls and other essentials in your car with you and make a note to change their microchip and insurance details so that they’re registered to your new address.
