Thank you for doing this! With a leash you don't even have to worry about calling them back, or them getting ran over by a careless driver, or attacked by another loose dog, or chasing a furry animal, or other things that can happen on the road in an unfamiliar place with strange sites and smells.
Funny, those loose dogs that never run off and are always obedient 100% of the time are the ones that always end up running up, acting up, and ignoring their owners, right to my leashed and well behaved dogs for some reason! The owners are always insisting, they never do that, they always stay close, I don't know what got into them, and so forth.
I wish their owners were as responsible as you were, better safe than sorry.
Glad the move went well.
