Advice for moving hamster to smaller cage

Hi! I have a Syrian hamster who currently lives in an ~600 sq inch cage, but I am going to be moving soon and for the move I won’t be able to transport him in his large cage so I need to temporarily move him to a smaller cage (~360 sq inches) he will be living in this cage for maybe a week tops as I get stuff setup at the new place. Would he be okay if I move him into this smaller cage tomorrow (2 days before I move) and then just have him live in the cage until sometime middle of next week? I plan to add his used bedding from his current cage to make it smell familiar, just need him in something smaller as it may be a few days before I can get his larger cage into the new place.

It should be fine as long as it's only for a temporary home. Make sure you add his old toys and hides too.

Great! I’ll get him setup tomorrow, I’ll try to arrange everything in the smaller cage similar to how it is in his normal cage. Thanks!
