Moving Tips & Tools

We understand there are many moving parts when relocating your life. That’s why Atlas® offers helpful tips and tools to ensure every step of your move goes as smoothly as possible.

Adjusting to a new home.

Like people, pets need a little time to get used to new surroundings. A favorite food bowl, bedding and toys will help it feel at home. If your pet will have free roam in your new home, leave the carrier door open so it can come out when it is ready.

To locate a veterinarian, contact your local Humane Society, the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), or use our Pet Directory to find veterinarians in your area.


If you normally feed, exercise or play with your pet at certain times, continue to do so. During the final days of packing and preparation, consider keeping your pet at a friend's home or kennel. This may help keep it from getting upset and running away – or hiding in a moving box, as cats are prone to do. If you have questions at any time during your pet's relocation, talk to your Atlas Account Representative. Your Atlas professionals are always ready to help. They want your move to be stress-free—for every member of your family.

Keep your pet's routine as regular as possible before and during the move. It will help make your pets at home in the new house.
