Pet transport service reduces stress

May 30, 2016

Pets are part of the family. It’s as simple as that. And that means when you relocate to a new home, your pets need to make the journey too.

But it’s not always practical or even possible to take a big dog or an aquarium of finned friends in the car with you, especially when your relocation is an interstate one. Calling on a trusted pet transport service – such as Central Victoria Removals – will help ensure your two-legged, four-legged or even no-legged friends will be as stress free as possible during the move, no matter how long it takes.

Our team at Bendigo-based Central Victoria Removals understands that pets aren’t just animals to you. They’re companions and confidants and they deserve a smooth ride to their destination. And with us taking great care of them, they’ll be healthy, safe, comfortable and well cared for during the road trip.

Before your pet travels with us, there are things you can do as a pet owner to make their journey as easy as possible. We are happy to offer advice to clients to help their pets prepare for transportation. Our tips for owners of cats and dogs include:

  • Don’t make moving day the first time your pet gets to try out their travel crate. Introduce them to it well in advance, to reduce any fear factor. You can even take them for a mini road trip around the suburbs in the lead up to your big move.
  • Keep things as familiar as possible, and that goes for comforting scents too. Enclose their favourite toy or blanket or even one of your old jumpers in the crate to comfort them during the trip.
  • Don’t forget to make sure you provide food and water for your pet – especially if it’s going to be an overnight trip.
  • And give them a chance to run off their energy before it’s time to get into their temporary home for transportation.

Central Victoria Removals is proud of its quality pet transport service. Whether you have a cat or a dog, a bird, fish or reptile, we are committed to getting them to their new home safely, efficiently and comfortably so they can play an enthusiastic part in this next stage of your life. Often, if you’ve relocated to a new town, city or state, your pets are an important anchor and support as you get to know your unfamiliar environment.

So if you want a pet transport service you can trust for your beloved pets, please contact us at Central Victoria Removals. We offer door-to-door service and work hard to keep pets, and pet owners, happy during the relocation process.
