    • About Us

      We pride ourselves in providing a very personal service - we would never feel your pet is just another passenger. All our staff members are pet owners and understand just how important your pet is. We will do everything we can to take the worry out of your pet's move.

      We offer fully comprehensive packages through to just booking the air travel when we understand you are working to a budget.

      We take care of every aspect of your pet’s move and these include:-
      which vaccinations and tests will be needed, we will liaise with your vet about the different requirements and our vets can step in at any stage of the preparations. We provide a checking service during the preparations so we can be sure everything is kept on track.

      the import and export paperwork – we apply for this on your behalf.

      booking the flight and checking everything is in place for the booking.

      travel box – we provide plastic and made to measure wooden IATA standard travel boxes. IATA has very strict guidelines which ensure your pet is as comfortable as possible during their journey. We can arrange for the box to be delivered to your home so your pet has time to get used to the box prior to travel. This can help to alleviate some of the stress your pet may feel.

      collection from anywhere in the UK or Eire. We also go to Europe several times a month so can provide a door to airport service from an EU address – we will make sure the export and import requirements are still met. Our vehicles are DEFRA approved and are customised for long distance travel, air conditioned and electrically ventilated.

      boarding – the kennels are in a beautiful rural and quiet location. We do also like to provide home boarding when possible. If you are interested in this service, please let us know well in advance.

      delivery to the airport – our handlers will give your dog a last minute walk before the check in at the airport. Cats travel to the airport with access to a litter tray.

      we liaise with the destination services such as quarantine kennels (in New Zealand and Australia) and other IPATA members who we have worked with for many years.

      People often come to us saying how complicated it is moving pets. Let Animal Couriers take care of your pet’s move to your new home and take away that worry.
