A family reunion, a change of job, a project abroad – nowadays there can be a host of different reasons for a change of location. The questions which arise with such a move are always the same for each pet owner:
GRADLYN Pet shipping can provide the answer to all your questions. In over 40 years, our transport experts have delivered almost every kind animal safely and comfortably from A to B. So when it comes to transporting animals, there’s almost nothing our experienced team won’t have encountered before.
When organising animal transport by air, the most important considerations are:
Nothing is worse for your pet than a very small box which is unsuitable for his needs. And here our GRADLYN staff can help! Because some breeds won’t always fit into a standard box, where necessary, we have experts who can design and build special made-to-measure transport boxes. In most instances, GRADLYN Pet shipping will already have transport boxes in stock which are certified and approved under the IATA Live Animal Regulations. A selection of boxes in different sizes, which a pet owner can use immediately, are always available from the GRADLYN office at the airport.
Many airlines also have their own regulations regarding dog transport. Any dog which is legally described as a "fighting dog" must be transported in a special box. These are constructed from strong wood and come with specially designed grilles, so that a dog who becomes bored during transit will not be able to escape. GRADLYN’s expert assessment provides invaluable support and assistance to the dog owner, because it’s only when a transport box meets airline requirements that this hurdle can be overcome and the safe and stress-free transportation of the dog can take place.
To be well-prepared, an animal transport must be planned well in advance, so always start your planning in good time!
GRADLYN Pet shipping always allow plenty of time to advise pet owners on any questions, worries, fears or uncertainties they may have. Because animals and their owners should not only have a safe journey, they should enjoy a memorable experience too.
