What Is A Pet Relocation Service?

Posted on: 29 May 2019


Moving can be a logistical nightmare, especially when you add in kids and pets. If you are going far from home, it can get even worse. That's why you want to do everything you can make your mover easier, at least logistically. That can mean hiring a pet relocation service to help you move your pet around. What are these services and how can they help you?

Pet Relocation Services

You can think of a pet relocation service as basically a shipping and delivery service that doesn't carry packages, but carries animals instead. It's a little more complex than that in reality, but that's a pretty close comparison. These services take the responsibility for getting your pet from point A to point B, while you take the responsibility of getting yourself and your family to the same place. There are several benefits to using a pet relocation service to help you. 


One benefit is that they can help with boarding your pet if you are going to take longer to get to point B than your pet will. They might not be the service that does the actual boarding, but they will have a network of boarding kennels that they work with or can recommend for you to use. That way you know that your pet will be safe while you are getting to your new home. 


There are a lot of rules and regulations that go into making sure that any animal gets shipped in the safest possible manner. Those rules include where your pet can travel in a large airplane as well as what the temperatures need to be for your pet's health. If the temperature is too hot, you risk your pet getting sick from the heat, too cold, and you risk hypothermia. Both extremes are dangerous to your pet and could cause their death. There's also the fact that your pet may have to sit outside on the tarmac while the plane is getting loaded and unloaded, so optimal weather is best. There are also rules as to what your pet is going to need to be in so that they can travel properly. For an airplane, that means a lockable crate that has solid sides. The relocation service can recommend the best crates for you to use. 

If you have to move, you want to do what you can to make it easier on you. A pet relocation service can help you.
