Services

Animailers provides a variety of pet transportation services for domestic or international moves. Successful relocation of your pet requires careful planning with a current knowledge of all domestic and international regulations, as well as the most current import regulations and requirements of the destination country. With that knowledge, along with our extensive network of other international animal transportation professionals, we provide time saving, safe transportation for your pets. We are dedicated to providing worry-free, hassle-free, cost effective transportation of your animals anywhere in the world. We partner only with IPATA members so you can be sure of top quality professional services from companies that adhere to IPATA's strict code of ethics, policies, standards and practices.

Animailers provides customized, flexible transportation services to fit your budget and scheduling needs. From basic flight bookings to comprehensive, no hassle, door-to-door delivery, we can transport your pet—cat, dog, or exotic—almost* anywhere in the world.

* There are still some places that are truly impossible to get to and, as strange as it sounds, there are some countries that do not allow or don't have the capabilities to import pets.

Air Transportation Costs

Air transportation for pets and other animals is not like personal air travel. The cost of transportation is based on cargo rates and other fees charged by an airline. There are no special discounts for off-peak travel, no special rates for advanced bookings, and no discounts for shipping more than one pet. Cargo rates are based on weight, either actual weight or dimensional volume weight, which is why providing the actual weight of your pet is critical. A properly sized crate is also critical not only for accurate weight for costing, but also to meet the increasingly strict emphasis the airlines place on IATA Live Animal Regulations. (In short, if your pet is not in the right sized crate, it will not be allowed to fly. See more in our section on crates.
