Local pet travel within
We can fly your pets to all the major USA airports or even transport them by road if there is no airport at your destination.
You do better when you know better…. Read the below points to Know Better.
Adhering to veterinarian travel requirements.
Domestic airlines request that your dog & cat has an up to date rabies vaccination. This mean rabies vaccination has to be older than 14 days and younger than 1 year.
Three year rabies vaccinations are not readily accepted for local pet travel.
If your pets rabies vaccination has expired or your pet has never received a rabies vaccination then a new rabies vaccination has to be given and the pet can only travel 14 days after the new rabies vaccination has been administered.
In the case of kennelling we also require Feline or Canine vaccinations to be provided.
Understanding your domestic pet travel quotation.
Airfreight is calculated on how much space your pet’s travel crate occupies in the airline’s cargo hold and unfortunately these prices are never discounted by the airlines. Airline fuel fees, administration fees, crate charges and additional kennelling (if required) have to be taken into consideration.
We will tailor your quote to suit your needs and requirements, but if you find that the quote is above your budget please let us know and perhaps we can advise you on how to reduce costs.
Accepting our quote for your pet’s travel services.
Please let us know that you are accepting our quote so our Admin department can supply you with your invoice.
You can either pay the required non-refundable deposit or the full amount.
Once your payment reflects in our account, your file will be allocated to your dedicated consultant.
Working with your dedicated consultant.
Your dedicated consultant will contact you to establish a relationship with you and your pets and at the same time collect all the travel information specific to your pet travel relocation needs.
You will be asked to send us copies of your pets’ veterinary documentation so your consultant can establish your travel preparedness and advise accordingly.
You will be asked to complete our Required Information Sheet with your contact details, collection / delivery addresses and your pet’s measurements and weight. It is important that you do this immediately, because if there is anything wrong with your paperwork, your consultant will be able to pick this up and guide you accordingly.
Supplying wooden travel box or plastic crate
.We run a loan travel box system between our two branches: NJ & CA.
Our manufacturing team will build your pet’s wooden IATA approved travel crate to the highest safety and durability standards. We can also supply you with a top quality plastic VARI-KENNEL.
If you purchased the Traveller Comfort Pack then we will bring the travel kennel to your house two weeks in advance. If not, we will bring the travel crate with us to your residence when we collect your pets on the day of their departure.
Your pet’s travel crate will contain two water bowls, absorbent water pad, labels and airline stickers. If you purchased the Traveller Comfort Pack we will supply superior quality Pet Travel bedding.
It is worthwhile to put one of your used t-shirts or at least something with a familiar smell or their own doggy / kitty blanket into the travel crate.
Wooden travel boxes are theoretically for one use only and some countries will insist on incineration like in China. However due to crate’s robust construction if you store them properly they could be used again.
To view gallery of our boxes and read more about the box compliance with the IATA standards or How to measure my pet – please go to our Travel crate section.
Suppling own pet’s travel crate.
If you are supplying your own travel crate please send us a picture so we can check that it complies with airline requirements to avoid any last minute delays. We also recommend that as far in advance as possible you make sure to clean your pet’s crate, assemble the pieces together and check door’s mechanism. This will prevent last minute surprises.
You should also provide a water bowl and a blanket.
Booking your pet’s flight.We can fly your pets to all the major USA airports or even transport them by road if there is no airport at your destination.
Your consultant will send you your pet’s flight itinerary along with their ticket number (Air Waybill Number – AWB).
