    Make sure your neighborhood and home are pet-friendly

    When choosing your Calabasas home you’ll have to take your pets into consideration. For example, an apartment on the 5th floor, in a building without an elevator, might be an acceptable option for you. However, it likely won’t be the best option for your senior dog. Plus, if you’re renting, you have to make sure that you’re moving into a building that allows pets. But it doesn’t stop there. You should also ensure that your neighborhood of choice is well suited to your pets.

    Before moving to Calabasas from Burbank with your pet, find a great vet near your new home

    Having a vet close by is very important. You never know what might happen. Luckily, California is very urban and full of professionals. Just like there are heaps of expert moving companies San Fernando Valley residents recommend for their extraordinary moving skills, so are there expert vets that get praises from pet owners. That means that finding a vet in Calabasas won’t be a problem. So before you move with your pet, make sure you have a tried and tested Calabasas vet on speed dial.

    Experience Calabasas together with your pet before moving

    Getting your pet used to Calabasas before moving can be very helpful. Your pet will likely feel a lot more comfortable after experiencing the road from Burban to Calabasas a couple of times. And on top of that, your pet will also feel a lot more comfortable in Calabasas after the move if you two spend some time there before the move. Of course, this mostly applies to dogs and outside cats who like to be walked. You can’t really go sightseeing with a hamster, can you? But all in all, all this will certainly make a moving day so much easier for your pet.

    Stay on track with tasks so you can dedicate more time to your pet if needed

    Moving is pretty much comprised of endless moving tasks. That alone is enough to completely overwhelm you. Unfortunately, when you’re overworked and stressed, your pets can suffer. And since moving is also very stressful for pets, it’s your responsibility to manage moving well enough so you can be there for your pets. Procrastination is not an option. You have to do whatever you can to ensure you’ll be there for your pets whenever they need you during your move from Burbank to Calabasas.

    Find pet-friendly movers to help you move

    Unfortunately, not all movers are pet-friendly. Some don’t want to deal with pets while some simply don’t have the necessary skills. Of course, you can always move your pet yourself and let your movers deal with the rest. Fortunately, though, there are many movers Calabasas has to offer that are completely per-friendly. Some will also assist you in moving your pets and some will even move your pets for you. So it’s advisable that you do some research and find suitable movers who will be helpful to both you and your pets during your move.

    Ensure moving day is not stressful for your pet

    It’s very important to keep pets safe on a moving day. Your pets are not you, they don’t understand what’s going on. Yes, moving day will be easier if you implement all the above-mentioned tips, however, your pet will still likely be scared and confused. It’s your job to help your pets through this “tough” time. Ensure everything is running smoothly, ensure you have your pets’ favorite toys and treats on hand, be very loving towards your pets, and of course, be responsive to the signs and signals they’re sending you. Remember, they don’t view things the same way you do.

    ''These guys did a great job with my heavy stuff! I only needed a few heavy things moved (like a refrigerator, sofa, big display case, etc). They showed up on time, were helpful and friendly, and were done on-time. And they moved all my heavy stuff down a flight of stairs in the LA heat! Definitely recommend them, and will use them again in the future!''
