Testimonials

"Now that we are settling into our new surroundings in England, David and I want to thank you — and everyone on your team (Alice in NY and James in the UK) — for taking such amazing care of Winston. I turns out I (Francesca) was more nervous than anyone. I guess this is expected. But we are truly thankful for everything you did… From answering every little question we asked, to settling our nerves and most importantly, for getting Winston to the UK without any issues. It goes without saying that we could not have done it without you!"

Francesca & David

"You guys run a very professional operation and the people could not have been nicer. Thanks for organizing all this. Our puppy is finally home."

Carol

"Thanks for all your help. Chloe arrived in great shape. We appreciate all the coordination carried out by you and others as it really took the stress out of Chloe’s relocation for us."

Muriel

"I really want to thank you for the excellent service and support you have given me during this difficult transition period. Robin arrived extremely well and my daughters were delighted to see Robin back with us. Felix was phenomenal too and thanks to him we were able to get all the documents ready to have Robin with us faster. Please pass on my thank you to him as well."

Victor

"I would like to thank you for the wonderful service transporting our four legged kids. It was not just transporting, your updates, the photos and most of all for that moment of happiness when they arrived. Priceless!"

David

"Mimi and MuiMui are doing great, they got used to the new place pretty quickly. Thank you for organizing their trip and keeping us updated throughout the time."

Adrian

"Callie was fine after her first airplane ride and was happy to see me. I am thrilled that she is finally here. She is busily sniffing everything in our new home.

I want you to know how appreciative I am for the excellent job that you and Starwood did getting my little girl here to me. You made the process painless and it is obvious that you and the staff at Starwood really care about people’s pets. Thank you so much. I will definitely refer Starwood to any friends that might need their pets transported across the country or internationally. "

Maria

"Good to have our Diesel back. He is doing well, trying to adjust to the Houston heat. Tina was great! It all worked out better than I had anticipated. Thanks."

Amy

"We’re finally connected to the web in our new place in London. Foxy and Blue are settling in very quickly and love running up and down our two new flights of stairs. The (small) garden is also a very big hit! Thank you so much for ensuring the babies made it here safely – we couldn’t have a 'home' without them."
