    Introduction


    Moving to a new home is a significant life event not only for you but also for your furry companions. As UK residential relocation specialists, Moving Circle Removals understands the importance of ensuring a smooth transition for every member of your family, including your pets. In this comprehensive guide authored by James Sanders, a seasoned professional with 35 years of experience in the moving industry, we explore the nuances of moving with pets.

    The Art of Pet-Friendly Moves: A Specialized Approach by Moving Circle Removals


    Moving with pets requires a unique and specialized approach, considering the well-being and comfort of your animal companions throughout the entire process. At Moving Circle Removals, we pride ourselves on not only being experts in premium residential moves but also in fully managed residential relocations that cater to the needs of every member of your family, including your beloved pets.

    Preparing Your Pets for the Move


    Before the moving day arrives, it’s crucial to prepare your pets for the upcoming changes. James Sanders recommends starting the process well in advance to allow your pets to gradually acclimate to the idea of moving. Begin by maintaining their routines as much as possible, especially regarding feeding and exercise. Introduce packing materials slowly to avoid causing stress, and consider consulting with a vet if your pet has anxiety or health concerns related to the move.

    Creating a Safe Haven During the Move


    On the actual moving day, it’s essential to create a safe and secure space for your pets. This might involve confining them to a quiet room away from the chaos of packing and moving furniture. Moving Circle Removals suggests preparing this space with your pet’s favorite toys, bedding, and food to provide a sense of familiarity amidst the hustle and bustle.

    Choosing Pet-Friendly Transportation


    When it comes to transportation, safety is paramount for your pets. Moving Circle Removals employs pet-friendly transportation practices, ensuring that your pets are comfortably accommodated during the journey. Whether it’s securing them in specially designed carriers or providing ample ventilation and breaks, our fully managed residential relocations prioritize the well-being of your furry friends.

    Researching Pet-Friendly Services in Your New Location


    Upon arriving at your new residence, it’s crucial to have a plan in place for your pets’ immediate needs. Research and locate nearby veterinary clinics, pet supply stores, and parks. Moving Circle Removals, with its extensive experience in residential removals across major UK cities, can offer valuable insights and recommendations for pet-friendly services in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, and Cardiff.

    Gradual Introduction to the New Home


    Pets thrive on routine and familiarity, so introducing them to the new home gradually is key to reducing stress. Begin with a limited exploration of one room and gradually expand their access to the entire house. Allow them to explore at their own pace, and Moving Circle Removals suggests placing familiar items, such as their bed and toys, in each room to create a sense of comfort.

    Identifying Pet-Friendly Spaces in the Community


    As part of our commitment to fully managed residential relocations, Moving Circle Removals emphasizes the importance of identifying pet-friendly spaces in your new community. From nearby parks and walking trails to pet-friendly cafes and grooming services, understanding the local pet-friendly landscape can contribute significantly to your pets’ well-being and adjustment to the new environment.

    Maintaining Routine and Comfort


    Consistency is key when it comes to helping your pets adjust to their new surroundings. Stick to their regular feeding and walking schedule as closely as possible. Familiar scents, such as their bedding or toys, can provide comfort during the transition. Moving Circle Removals advises clients to prioritize their pets’ needs during the settling-in period to ensure a smooth and stress-free adjustment.

    Addressing Specific Concerns for Different Pets


    Different pets have varying needs and concerns during a move. While dogs may benefit from extra walks and playtime to burn off energy, cats may require more secluded spaces to feel secure. Small animals like hamsters or reptiles need special attention to ensure their enclosures are secure during transportation. Moving Circle Removals understands the diverse needs of pets and tailors its approach accordingly.

    The Role of Professional Pet Movers


    For an added layer of comfort and convenience, consider enlisting the services of professional pet movers. These specialists are trained to handle the intricacies of transporting animals, providing a stress-free experience for both pets and owners. Moving Circle Removals collaborates with trusted pet-moving partners, ensuring that every aspect of your move, including your pets’ well-being, is meticulously cared for.

    Amazing service!! Without James and his team, my move probably wouldn't have happened. They got me out of a tight spot at really short notice thanks to solicitors not exchanging contracts until 4 days before my move Extremely professional set up from the minute they arrived, throughout the whole day up until they left. They took great care with my furniture and other possessions and so skilled In getting everything into my brand new build property without causing any damage. I would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone needed a professional, reliable and caring removals firm at a very reasonable price. For anyone moving in and around Staffordshire Moving Circles are the 👌

    James & team recently helped us move house - we cannot fault the service and would highly recommend. James was really professional from the outset and also very flexible when our completion date kept moving around (unlike many other removal companies). The team that turned up on the day to support the move was also great - efficient and worked really hard throughout the move day. Moving Circles was also highly competitive in their pricing. Thank you Moving Circles - would definitely work with your team again in future!

    We used Moving CIrcles for our recent move and I am so glad that we did . From the very first consultation right through to the actual move, I cannot fault the service that we received. The guys that did the move were very friendly and professional throughout, nothing was damaged and everything was put where we asked. I would highly recommend James and the team who certainly went above and beyond to ensure a smooth move. Thank you so much.
    How much do movers cost for a two bedroom apartment uk?

    How much does a removal service cost when moving flat? On average, the removal cost for a 2 bedroom flat will usually cost somewhere in the range of £315 and £500, plus VAT.

    How much do you tip movers?

    A good rule is to give £20-£25 to each person from the moving team for a half-day. If they have been working for the entire day, it might be reasonable to give them £40 to £50 for their efforts. A little extra would be nice if they have been taking heavy items up and down the stairs.

    Tuesday is the most expensive day to move house. If you're choosing your moving date primarily for financial reasons, then Sunday is the best day to move house for you.
