THE RELOCATION PROCESS
The first thing we will do when you get in touch will be to send you an enquiry form. It is a bit tiresome, but the details are important. Depending on where you and your pets are travelling to, and on which airline(s), there may be a range of options available. It is our job to select those options best suited to your needs and to discuss them with you. To do this we need a bit of information. So sorry in advance for the paperwork – we will do our best to keep it to a minimum.
MAKING A DECISION
Once you have completed as many details as you can on our enquiry form, we will determine and then discuss the various options with you. Where multiple solutions may be possible, we will do our best to help you decide which provides the most comfortable and worry free route for your pet(s), as well as hopefully helping you look after your wallet. In every case we will look at the bigger picture to enable us to offer you the most appropriate solution to your pets relocation.
We also provide you with a fully comprehensive quote rather than an indicative figure that keeps changing. This way, you know right from the start, how many cups of coffee, or nights out on the town, your furry fliers air ticket, hotel and limo’s will cost you.
GET THE BALL ROLLING
Once you have decided on your preferred solution, we will discuss and agree a relocation plan with you, including indicative dates, timelines and any actions required on your part to prepare your pet for travel. As we proceed through the process we keep you updated all the way. On the day of travel, whether your pet is traveling in cabin, as excess baggage or cargo, we will be with you to hold your paw during (what is for most owners – staff in the case of cat parents) the most stressful part of the process, waving your furry flier onto their flight. Once you all arrive at the other end, we continue to remain in touch. Not just to ensure that everything goes well during the final stages, but mostly because we like to stay in touch, and of course (there is a little bit of selfishness here), because it makes us feel good, seeing all the photo’s of the happy reunions and your pets in their new homes.
OTHER STUFF YOU NEED TO KNOW
It is normal to get a little concerned whilst preparing your pet(s) for travel. It may also seem like some of the hoops we have to jump through are a little silly or nonsensical. Trust us, we know how you feel. So if you feel yourself getting stressed, take a deep breath and give us a call. Everyone involved, from the airlines to the ministry vets just want to help us through the process. If you are unsure as to why certain information is being requested, or the reason for having to update or fill in a few gaps in your pets’ vaccination book, don’t hesitate to ask. We will do our best at all times, to put your mind at ease, so you can focus on all the other important things going on.
HOW DO WE GET IN TOUCH?
If you would like to chat about how Pawsome Pets can help you and your family relocate, we would be delighted to hear from you. You can get in touch a number of ways, send us an email, PM our Facebook page or call us. Tell us what you are looking for, or if you are not sure, we will advise you on a range of solutions that suit your needs.
Let us know if you wish nominate a particular animal welfare group, to benefit from the donation we make from your relocation fee or if you are happy for us to make that decision on your behalf. Then, just sit back and relax (or more likely, run around like a headless chicken, sorting all your non-paw relocation stuff out) whilst we get your furry fliers home.
