Transporting cats, dogs, guinea pigs and budgerigars

Courier Gwen recently transported cats, dogs, guinea pigs and budgerigars. A large and varied pet family relocated from the Wirral to Scotland; while moving to England were a cat from Berlin and two dogs from the Netherlands. A dog, 3 cats, 2 guinea pigs and 3 budgies from England to Scotland The Woods family are living their dream in the Highlands of Scotland, having relocated from the Wirral. They needed an extended transport for their many beloved pets so they could make the move calmly and be ready to welcome the animals to their new Scottish home. So courier Gwen collected the pets and took them for a one-night stay on a farm in Scotland. It took the stress [...]

Petra is an absolute sweetheart, loves contact and affection. There was no way I could leave her to fend for herself over an uncertain Lesvos winter. She’s special and it has been so worth all the worry and expense to give her the forever home she deserves. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done to get her here. I’m so deeply grateful.

I just wanted to say that Chubbs loved the time you spent together, she looked so happpy and well looked after when we saw her for the first time afer her journey! Before courier S collected Chubbs from Portugal we were so scared to be giving our little princess to a stanger, but you put us all at ease and Chubbs took to you immediately! So thank you from the bottom of hearts, keep up the good work.

These experts from Animalcouriers were great. I picked them because they already had experience with getting a dog to Bermuda via London Gatwick and, as a bonus, their price was reasonable. It was professional service with a good dose of kindness and understanding about the stress of a move. I would recommend them and use them again. The dog was happy to go with the courier who got him and after the flight the next day, he looked well-cared for. I think he even got a home grooming because he smelled lovely.

Thank you for taking such a good care of Iorek. Both my family and I were amazed by the care and attention you provided for him through his first travelling experience. Iorek has settled well in Italy and is coping with the heat by taking every opportunity he gets to splash around when the garden water sprinkles are on! I will strongly recommend Animalcouriers to anyone who needs your service.

A huge thank you for reuniting us with Jimmie and Millie last week; in addition thank you so much for the enormous effort you put in to resolving the delays after the passport problem so speedily. Mike our courier was also fantastic and kept us well informed during their trip, the cats arrived safe and sound and are now very much at home en France.I just wanted to say how very impressed we have been both with your organisation in general and particularly with the great consideration you give to the welfare of the animals you are transporting. We would be very happy to recommend your services!

Cooper made it home safe and sound and very happy. He is hanging out with our family in Ohio until we pick him up in a few weeks. Thank you so much for everything you did for us. We couldn’t be more happy with how he was cared for on his journey. From the pictures you posted it looked like he was having a blast and made some new friends.

(Animalcouriers drove Cooper from Italy to London and arranged his flight from Heathrow to Ohio)

Rumy arrived safe and sound and she’s just settling in and currently sleeping under the bed after exploring the house. Thank you very much for bringing her over safely for us. The blog you guys run shows just how much you actually care about your job and the animals, which is more than I’ve seen from anyone else! If we ever have to move a pet again it will be you who we will call. Really good job and good luck with all your future trips.

Animalcouriers have been amazing all the way through some very complicated beaurocracy issues that I could not have sorted out alone here in Ecuador. I want to recommend them to everyone. Despite my having to change my plans last minute due to some beaurocracy laws in Ecuador, Animalcouriers have been extremely helpful to me. They are fast to respond to document problems and help out no matter what, and are very responsible. If you hire their services you can have peace of mind with your pet in their hands.

Loved seeing my 3 boys in transit this afternoon, they look relaxed and comfy! So glad you were recommended to us. Much better than being squashed up in little cages in the car with us amongst all our belongings!! So looking forward to having them at home soon. You really are wonderful people and do great work. Thank you

The grand reunion took place as planned and Bart has made himself at home. He obviously travelled first class in 5-star luxury. Many thanks to you and your team. I will certainly recommend Animalcouriers to anyone we know looking for pet transport.
