Making Pet Arrangements

As our previous blogs have noted, it can be difficult to properly prepare for moving homes with your furry relatives in tow. In the chaos of making preparations with dutiful friends and packing everything into cardboard confines, some Coloradans forget where and how to move their dog and cat. Remember, as always, to plan out in advance this phase, making arrangements with relatives or trusted comrades. Adequate space is needed for kennels, beds, and the pet’s possessions in order to help with a stress-free move. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and getting the pets into their new place without anxiety will pay off for everyone in the end.

Accounting For House Plants

Similar to your domestic animals, the tamed plant life in your home will also need to be accounted for before starting the moving process. Beyond the physical considerations, certain varieties of plants may not be allowed at your new homestead, especially if it crosses state lines. Even if all the packing is done precisely, it won’t matter if they can’t get to the new place!

Packing and transporting plant life can be done by your moving company if certain conditions are met. Many Coloradans take on the task themselves, putting in the effort to get their greenery safely to the new home. The act of moving a plant creates a set of unique logistical demands that will be unique to each individual. A few main points would include:

  • Load the plants last, minimizing time in the car.
  • Keep your plants out of the trunk if at all possible.
  • Ensure all plants will remain upright during transport.
  • Keep the temperature and sunlight in the car controlled.
  • Be sure the plants are not watered shortly before leaving and do not water them until you reach the new destination (distance pending).

Properly preparing for your big move will help to minimize the stress and chaos once everything is set in motion.
