How much does pet transport cost?
Pet relocation can cost anywhere between $70 and $1000. The cost of transporting your pets depend on factors such as the size of the pet, the distance traveled, species, kennel type, pet's weight, transit charges, breed and origin city.
Some of the added costs to pet transportations include the cost of getting a certificate vouching for the pet's good health from a veterinarian which can cost $80 - $100 approx. The crates used for transportation can cost anywhere from $40 - $250 depending upon the size of your pet. It is always a great idea to invest in pet health insurance, which can cost around $10 - $30.
How do I ship my pet to another state?
When you decide to transport your pet to another country, check the respective country's pet import rules. Each country requires different documents to ensure the safe import of your pets. Prepare a pet travel plan. Take your pet to your veterinarian, have the professional conduct a comprehensive health exam on your pet, and ensure that your pet remains in good health and can withstand the transportation. Ask your veterinarian for a certificate stating the same.
Next, you need to look at the pricing options of airlines for transporting a pet and their rules relating to the same. You should also buy an appropriate kennel for your pet, which should offer the space for it to stand and turn around. When shipping or air-transporting your pet, some of the important things that must be a part of your checklist includes,
- Plan your pet’s travel Kennel, bedding, food, water, and medications if any
- Get all his health records ready, including health certificates, shots, breed certificates, etc.
- Make sure your pet has a collar or Microchip for identification
You can either choose to do it all on your own, which could be a time-consuming and arduous task, or you can outsource this to a professional. We provide excellent pet transport services in Los Angeles and can save you time, money, and stress.
Can my pet fly without me?
Yes, your pet can fly without you. If you can't take it with you on the road, you can always sign it as manifest air cargo. You need to take measures to check in your pet at the departing airport and pick it up at the cargo facility at the arriving airport terminal.
However, if you are traveling with your pet, you can carry it as carry-on luggage and place the kennel under your seat. If your pet's size doesn't allow it to fly in the cabin with you, they can travel as accompanied checked baggage provided your airline offers this service.
