When you are moving across the state or across the country there are a lot of details to manage. Transporting your pets can sometimes pose a problem. If you are thinking about flying then your furry friend may be relegated to the cargo hold. If you want to have them in the cabin with you, you need to realize that you will need to book this service well in advance because there is limited space. This only works if your pet is in a carrier that will fit under the seat. All this is predicated on whether or not the airline even allows pets.
Using a Pet Transportation Service
A good alternative is using a pet transportation service. Your first concern is that your pet is safe and comfortable and treated with the same care and love that you provide on a daily basis. Probably second on the list is how much it will cost. The answer is it is difficult to say.
Over the years we have discovered that there are a number of factors that influence the cost of pet transportation. Some of those issues include the number of pets we will be transporting. We also consider the time frame for the relocation. It also depends on the site of the new home. Distance is a factor as well as whether the locations are remote or easily accessed by highways.
In the long run, you should expect to receive a personalized quote. Instead of having your animal companions stuck in a cargo hold, they can be driven to your new home in the climate-controlled SUV or minivan. You will know that they are being tended by a person who is truly interested in the comfort and well-being of your pets. Dogs are walked at least every four hours and cats have fresh and clean litter boxes at their disposal. Fresh water and appropriate food is provided. These services are also able to accommodate individual needs for your pets.
