Budget101.com : Re: moving questions

Hi all, I may be moving across the country next summer (from near San Diego to Charleston, SC). Does anyone have any money saving moving tips? I'm going through the house room by room now and trying to declutter anything that I don't want to have to pay to have moved. My other question deals

    I don't want to have to pay to have moved. My other question deals with
    moving animals. I have 3 dogs and 5 cats that need to move with us (one
    dog is a large dalmation) and I don't look forward to moving them in the
    car with us (me and 3 kids) How do I do this without spending a fortune??

    Thanks all,
    Tammy

    can someone else help you with the drive and transport
    the cats and you take the dogs? Whatever you do,
    please don't put your pets up for adoption because it
    sounds easier than transporting them. Just the thought
    of that makes me want to cry. maybe you can talk to
    your local vet and see if your pets can be given
    something to calm them down for the ride. You really
    have to be careful if you are talking about flying
    them to your new home. i have heard too many horror
    stories of lost pets at the airport. You may also want
    to be careful about the weather so that it's not too
    hot for your pets. good luck---daisygirl============

    My only advice is to rent a mini van and drive them. Shipping that
    ammount of pets will be very expensive. Possibly getting another
    driver would make the trip faster. May have to have someone else
    drive with the pets or kids to get your car and a van there....
    Sorry I can not offer any better advice.

    Don't know that this is budget wise such a good idea, but a friend
    that moved from GA to ND rented a travel trailer and took her animals
    in the trailer with her and towed her car behind it....it may be
    worth looking into once you price flights/animal carriers/hotel
    rooms....
    Good luck!

    The vet can give you something to calm your animals. I drove from MT to MD
    with cats and dogs and the vet gave me meds for them. The dogs slept most
    of the way as did the cats. I did keep the cats in a carrier tho.

    Hi all,
    I would NEVER give them up. That would be like giving away a member of
    our family. We did make a move in our van that was sooooo difficult from
    Ca. to Texas and I swore that I would find a better way. Flying is
    expensive and the stories of escapes and deaths to pets have put me off
    at following that route. I'm just scratching my head. I will talk to the
    vet. Didn't think about that!!
    Thanks,
    Tammy

    I read in a dog rescue group about a thing called a "dane train" for
    getting local dane rescues to their adoptive families. People
    volunteer to make certain legs of the trip, usually about 100 miles
    at a time. Maybe if you look into rescue groups someone may have a
    more definate explaination of how these things work. I would think
    they would rather help safely transport than have dogs end up in
    rescue. Not that you are looking into that, but alot of people do.

    Another thing I would look into is hiring someone to drive the
    animals in a second vehicle. That way you are close enough to know
    where they were and that they were safe, but have space to take care
    of the kids at the same time. Set up preplanned stops for food/walk
    around time, so you can check on any problems that may pop up. Having
    cell phones in both vehicles would make it much easier as well.

    Rescue remedy is one pet calmer that I know works, I believe it is
    herbal and not a "tranquilizer" but just eases nerves some. My sister
    told me about it and said it seems to work well.

    I am so glad that my upcoming move involves a drive time of about 15
    minutes between houses

    Good luck,
    Shawnee
