  • Is my pet allowed to eat during transport?
    It depends on the length of the journey. If you’re transporting a pet via air carrier, then it’s advised that you don’t feed them for up to 4 hours before they fly. This is because it could cause an incident that makes your pet dirty and uncomfortable. However, it’s important to make sure their cage includes water bowls with plenty of water to keep them hydrated.
  • Do I need to vaccinate my pet?
    Unless you’re moving abroad with your pet, then no, you won’t need to vaccinate them. However your pet insurance may require routine vaccinations, so check with your policy provider and vet. For international pet relocation, you will have to check with the relevant authorities. Our specialist vets can provide you with the information regarding the vaccination requirements that apply to your pet relocation.
  • Can I sedate my pet if they get nervous?
    Our pet relocation experts advise against sedation for a number of reasons. Our specialist vets will discuss this, as well as all other aspects of your home move concerning your pet as part of our pet relocation service.
  • How does my pet travel during a flight?
    For pets travelling by air, especially over a long distance, you can rest assured that they’ll be comfortable and secure throughout the journey. Your pet will be transported as live animal cargo, as part of the cargo hold. The hold itself is pressurised in much the same way as the passenger cabin is, with air conditioning/heating to ensure the correct temperature. Generally speaking, most cargo holds are dimly lit to help encourage your pet to rest.
