As specialists in the field of pet travel we understand that each of our customers has their own specific pet relocation needs.

In light of this we’re happy to offer a broad range of different pet transport services.

In this way, whether you want a complete end-to-end service where we complete the whole process on your behalf, or you want to “cherry pick” individual services PBS Pet Travel can offer you everything you need.

Pet Transport Services We Offer

Pet travel is often a complex business with many elements required in order to safely and legally relocate your pet. As a result we offer a broad range of pet transport services.

Some of our most popular services are listed below, though if you are seeking a service not listed then please feel free to get in touch. As experts in our field we are able to fulfil most requests in order to help you transport your pet safely.

Land Transport – Our pet courier services can collect your pet from your home before travel and deliver him or her to the relevant animal reception centre. For incoming pets we can safely transport your pet from the airport to your home.

Long – Distance Ground Transport – Some more sensitive pets are better transported by land rather than on a plane. As a result our pet transport services can travel long-distance with your pet in our specialist air-conditioned vehicles.

Pet Flights – Most pets travel in an air-conditioned and pressurized cargo hold of their own. We can advise on all pet flights or arrange these on your behalf. In many cases it is also possible for you to travel on the same plane as your pet. In such circumstances we can advise on this process.

Application of Import Permits – Paperwork is one of the most complex aspects of travelling with pets. As a result one of the most popular pet transport services we offer means our highly experienced team will arrange for all the necessary paperwork on your behalf.

Application of CITES Paperwork – For individuals transporting endangered species covered by CITES such as some reptiles (tortoises for example), mammals and birds (many parrot species for example) we can help you gather the necessary permits for export/import.

Application and Completion of DEFRA Export Health Certificates – In almost every case an animal must be verified as safe to travel before an airline or pet courier service will accept it. We have connections with a number of trusted veterinarians and are happy to arrange these certificates for your pet.

Customs Clearance (all destinations) – Negotiating Customs in some countries can take time. Rather than you waiting in line why not let PBS deal with Customs on your behalf?

IATA Approved Travel Kennels – For obvious reasons many of our airline partners are very specific about the type of travel carriers they will accept – not to mention the required dimensions. We are able to provide a suitable travel kennel for your pet and even deliver it to your home in advance of travel allowing your pet to become familiar with it.

Calming Sprays – Whilst most vets recommend against the use of drugs before travel (to avoid stomach upsets) the use of herbal calming sprays can be particularly beneficial. These help to gently and naturally soothe your pet, making transport more pleasant.

Specialist Travel Crates for All Types of Pets – As one of our more specialist pet transport services we don’t just deal with cats and dogs; we can help with transporting all types of pets abroad. We can provide secure travel crates for virtually any animal.

Kennel Boarding – With our own facilities near Gatwick we are able to offer kennel boarding if you happen not to be travelling at the same time as your pet. We also offer a number of pet collection points across the UK to make transporting your pet as easy as possible.
