Why Choose A Pet Transport Service To Move Your Pet

[fa icon="calendar'] August 7, 2019 / by Starwood Animal Transport posted in Pet Shipping, Pet Travel, Pet Transport

If you need to move your pet any significant distance, there is one simple reason why you should hire a pet transport service to handle the details: you love your pet more than anything. Well, maybe except for your spouse and kids, if you have them. There are several other reasons to get professional assistance, and while they may play a supporting role, they are in fact extremely important.

The right pet transport service loves animals just as much as you do – why else would they be in the business of ensuring furry family members travel safely and comfortably, all around the world? They can serve as an expert member of your moving team, an information filter, an advisor, a concierge and your pet’s advocate throughout the process of planning and executing a move. That’s a lot. And it’s a huge time savings, at a time when you’re already unusually busy and have a lot on your mind.

If you’re moving domestically, a pet transport service can help with ground or air transport. If you’re headed overseas, an experienced international pet transport company can make pet-friendly arrangements to virtually anywhere. Of course, you’ll want to ask lots of questions, to be sure you pick the right pet travel expert.
