Your pets are part of your family. They are just like people in that they also become stressed when moving. Generally, the home is their habitat both day and night and they are very sensitive to changes in their environment. When faced with an unfamiliar situation your pet can become distressed.

With careful organization and planning, the transport process can be made easier and less stressful for both you and your pet. Pets are transported effortlessly by air in comfortable custom-built kennels. 

We will help you to organize the transportation and kennelling of your pets with the minimum amount of upset or discomfort.

Tips on moving with your pet

  • Schedule an examination with your veterinarian well before you move.
  • Don’t move your pet while he/she is sick as the stress may aggravate an illness which could be detrimental to your pet’s health. Read more: Prevent travel anxiety and carsickness in pets.
  • Your veterinarian may suggest a tranquilizer to ensure that your pet is comfortable during the move.
  • Remember to update your pets' identification tags and obtain copies of health and vaccination records.

Book a direct flight if you are travelling by plane, if your pet is travelling in freight, it is likely that they may be sitting outside with the freight for a long periods of time in between flights. If the weather is either too hot or too cold your pet may suffer. An insulated crate will certainly help this situation if it cannot be avoided.
