  • Wed, 15 May 2013 22:03:59 -0500

When it comes to moving your pet over a long distance, it's important to choose a pet transporter who has plenty of experience working with a range of animals. More often than not, transportation is a simple job without any surprises. When something unexpected happens, though, you want to know that your professional can take care of your pet's needs.


Ask Your Friends About Their Experiences


Ask your friends if they have ever used a pet relocation service. If you use a social networking site like Facebook, then post a public message that will reach all of your friends. This can provide useful information about pet relocation services. You might hear positive and negative stories. Use those to help you decide whether a service puts your mind at ease.


Read Reviews Online


You should also go online to read reviews written by people you don't know. This can give you a wider perspective on the level of services that pet relocators offer. Remember that it's common to find a few negative reviews, even for companies that do great work. Some people are never satisfied. Others just like to complain.


Read several reviews so you can get a consensus that helps you make up your own mind. After all, it's your pet. You're the one who should feel comfortable with the service provider you choose.


Talk to the Pet Relocator


Before making any final decisions, contact the relocator that seems best for you and your pet. It's important to get a sense of the company's approach. You'll want to find a professional who truly cares about the well-being of animals.


Asking questions can help you focus on relocators who do good work. Find out:

  • What types of treats they offer during relocation
  • How they keep animals calm during stressful situations
  • Whether they're trained in animal CPR and emergency services
  • What travel options they offer


Once you have gone through these steps, you should know which pet relocator feels right to you.
