Pets love routine. Whether it means going for a walk at the same time every afternoon, or catching those sunrise rays through the window every morning. When you move house, it can disrupt a pet’s routine and throw them off. To make it easier for your beloved animals, ensure that even in the disruption of a move you try to stick to their usual routine. Keep feeding them breakfast and dinner at the same time every day, and take them for their morning or afternoon walk at the same time as well. Keeping order and routine in their life will ensure that they adjust to their new surroundings quicker. By utilising Welshpool Self Storage, you can store items you don’t need immediately so that the move doesn’t interrupt you and your pets routine too much. This way, you can slowly bring furniture from your storage unit and take away less from your daily routine.

Consider the needs of your pets at your new house. Will you need to add a fence to the backyard? Perhaps you will need to install a pet gate or pet access in the doors. If you’re thinking ahead and collecting the supplies necessary to make your new home pet-friendly, store the tools and materials with Welshpool Self Storage and be prepared for the changes that need to be made at your new residence.


The final tip for you from Welshpool Self Storage when moving with pets would be to update the information that is on their collar, tags, or on their microchip. A new home can be scary for a pet, and if they get out and get spooked they could easily run off and get lost. Accidents happen, so be prepared and ensure that you update their information on any animal databases so that you and your four-legged friends can always find each other if the gate is left open by a mover or they escape out of an open window.
