Moving with pets

Your beloved canine comrade is super-excited about the prospect of the new parks, new smells and new open spaces to explore in your new country. The realities of moving overseas with pets, however, is fraught with red tape and logistical problems. Grace offers a range of premium pet transport services to help keep your furry friend safe and happy during your journey.

Our services include dedicated pet travel consultants, approved travel crates, finding the most direct- flight possible, pre-travel veterinarian health check and expert advice on possible vaccination requirements.

Here are our top tips to help you prepare your cat or dog for your passage.

  1. Accurate Information

    Before your relocation, it’s essential to gather all the correct information from your new country regarding vaccinations, quarantine and the timeframes for all of these requirements. Take the time to organise and sort through relevant information with the goal of creating a thorough plan for your pet to make their transition as smooth as possible. The last thing you want is to be dealing with unexpected issues with immigration or customs departments. Speak to your veterinarian about what’s best for your pet. Their expert advice is second to none and will help inform your plans and decisions regarding travel and arrival for your pet.

  1. Pet Plan

    As a part of our international pet transport services, Grace will assist you in creating an inclusive itinerary for your pet’s journey. We’re dedicated to providing you with a stress free service. Your itinerary will clear up any unknown aspects of pet travel and provide you with solid dates to work around.

  1. Transport Options

    With a number of options available for safely moving pets overseas, we’ll present you with the best plan. Grace can provide you with an airline approved pet travel crate so you can trust your pet is comfortable and secure. We can also offer you collection and delivery service in an animal transport vehicle so your furry farewell and reunion is taken care of.

  1. Quarantine and Customs

    Navigating your way through quarantine and customs can be tricky and requirements depend on the country you’re moving to. Check the New Zealand government’s website for more information on the permits and requirements of importing and exporting pets out of New Zealand.

Grace makes the most of local knowledge and pet-friendly service to ensure your pets arrive at their new home safe, sound and within the quickest timeframe possible.
