Here at DirectMovingBoxes.com we are pet lovers. So if you are packing or unpacking your moving boxes, its always a good idea to be careful were you are putting moving supplies with you pets around. Moving supplies such as small packing peanuts, rolls of packing tape and bubble wrap may seem like fun to play with for a dog or cat but can be very dangerous to the pets if accidentally eaten and swallowed.
Here is 2 good ideas you can do when unpacking or packing boxes:
1) Designated Moving Boxes. Have 1 or 2 designated moving boxes were you can put all your moving supplies. If your packing boxes, this is helpful because you will be more organized and always know where you moving supplies such as packing tape, markers and bubble wrap are. If your unpacking, it will help make clean up a snap because you will not have pieces of moving supplies such as plastic stretch wrap, paper, packing tape or styrofoam lying around the floor of your home, instead they will be contained into 1-2 cardboard boxes.
2) keep pets separate. During unpacking or when packing boxes simply put your pet in the next room if possible. If thats not an option, you can also leave your pet with a friend or neighbor.
Things not to do with your pets:
1) Don’t let your pet run around your moving supplies and chew on rolls of packing tape, play in piles of bubble wrap and packing peanuts.
2) Don’t put your pet inside of a cardboard boxes if they do not have a safe way of getting out.
Remember pets are like kids and you have to keep an eye on them during your move. Being more organized with your moving boxes and moving supplies will not only help you in packing faster it will keep your pets safe to.
