PET RELOCATION AND TRANSPORTATION

At Pet Relocator, we take care of the big and small stuff so you don’t have to!  Moving your pets is what we do best.   We have pets ourselves and your pets are like family to us. We are a full service pet relocation and transportation company.   With our network of professionals as well as established relationships with the airline partners both commercial such as United, Delta, Lufthansa, KLM, and British Airways and cargo operators like Amerijet and IBC Airways are examples of how we are able to assist you with your pet transportation needs as live animal cargo.

Changing requirements with the airlines and countries can make moving your pet feel overwhelming, but Pet Relocator specializes in keeping informed of all the changes.

Tails From the Road

We arrange all the required documentation to be completed for your pets travel as animal freight or animal cargo process from end to end.  We are experts in the field of pet shipping and pet transportation.

When traveling for pleasure or due to a relocation overseas you are faced with personal logistic hurdles from the beginning.   Your pets face completely different requirements, restrictions, and quarantine for entering the country to which you are moving.  There are many changing requirements between the airlines, countries, and export/import.   Engaging Pet Relocator for your pet transportation needs will help to ensure a smooth trip for you and your pets.

As we are headquartered in Colorado Springs Colorado with 3 military installations close to us, we often work to support our military members being PCS’d (permanent change of station) to new homes.   We have a network of international pet transportation specialists to assist you and we can service just about any city and country worldwide.  We are expanding our offices to personally service markets in Texas as well as Colorado.

Our services provide the following:

 Air and Ground Travel Consultation Services

We will provide you an initial pet travel consultation to determine the best routing for your pet and what services you are requiring. Depending on the breed type and pet size, your local airport may not be able to accommodate the relocation of your pet. We will research and provide you with available options. We will provide a detailed email to you once services have been booked which instructs you of the requirements for your pets travel such as vaccinations, veterinary certificates, micro chipping, etc.

Travel Carriers or Crates

Pet Relocator allows you to purchase your own travel carrier or we can procure one for you and have it shipped to you. We will advise you on how to measure your pet appropriately to ensure the appropriate size kennel in compliance with ATA and IATA standards.  We then advise you on what size crate to purchase and where we are finding the best deals on crates of that particular size.  LINK to KENNELS

* IATA requires that all animals must be able to sit, stand, lie down without curling in front feet, turn around and have 3 inches above the head when standing. Pet Relocator reserves the right to modify carriers that do not meet these standards. Clients will be responsible for additional charges due to incorrect kennels. We require photos of pets standing beside the kennel at least 5 days prior to travel to ensure that the kennel is appropriate for the pet.

*Any incidents beyond our control which delay your animal’s flight schedule (such as weather, requirement changes, errors in veterinary documents, flight delays/cancellations, strikes, etc) will likely incur additional costs. The client is responsible for paying all additional costs.

* Your estimate was provided based on airline & other provider fees in effect at the time it was given. We will communicate timely on any changes with these fees and do our best to find an alternative that will not exceed our original estimate. In the event we cannot find an alternative, the client will be responsible for the additional fees.

*All fees except those payable directly by the owner are due within 14 days of travel. If your travel is within 14 days you will receive an invoice for payment in full. Any additional fees may be billed after your pet has already arrived or is being transported. The client is still responsible for those additional costs.

* Client acknowledges and agrees that Transporter shall not be held liable for injuries, illness, or any other occurrence or event that occurs while pet(s) are in the care, custody, or control of a common transportation carrier, including but not limited to airline, train line, bus line, etc. Client also understands and agrees that Transporter shall not be liable for any damage resulting from the unforeseen acts of third parties or independent contractors.
