UK and European Pet Transportation Service
How do I get my pets back to the UK?
If you dislike the thought of your pets being transported in the hold of an aeroplane, with all the unnecessary waiting around and stress to both you and your pet, why not consider alternative road pet transportation as the easier and kinder alternative.
As a small family run, UK based, animal transport business we pride ourselves in providing a cheap pet transport service, without compromising on the quality of care and service we offer both you and your pets. Our European pet transportation service relocates to countries such as Italy, Spain, Germany, France and Belgium.
Pet Transport For Dogs
All dogs whilst in our care are exercised every 2-3 hours using non slip leads and have non spill water bowls for the whole journey. Dogs from the same family can be exercised together, however all dogs are walked individually and away from each other in their own space.
A vet bed is provided for your dog’s comfort and your dog/s are fed to your requirements. A fridge is available for any food that needs to be chilled, alternatively dried food is provided. We carry additional bedding in the event of any little accidents. Your dog is welcome to travel with their own bed or blanket for comfort.
The compartments are thoroughly sanitised and the beds are laundered at the end of each trip. Toys are kept on board but customers can leave a favourite with us for the journey if preferred.
Pet Transportation For Cats
Cats are transported in our compartments or Defra approved travel pens, litter trays are provided in our compartments for longer journeys, fresh water is also provided for the duration of the trip. Again small toys are kept on board but favourites are welcome.
We provide cat igloos for our kittens and puppies to travel in and scratching pads/posts are available. We also provide pet heat pads for extra warmth during the winter months. Your cat is welcome to travel with their own bed or blanket for comfort.
Caring For Your Pet
For all of our pets on board we keep a list of Veterinary clinics in case of emergency. If your pet needs medication administered on route this can be taken care of by our handlers.
We have a ramp on board for older dogs who may have difficulty accessing the vehicle.
Crossing the Channel
Based in East Sussex we are within 90 minutes of the majority of ports serving Europe and within 1 hour of the M25. Our preferred route is via the Eurotunnel as this is just a 35 minute crossing, reducing travel time and enabling us to remain with your pet throughout the crossing.
Our journey time for collection/delivery is 24-48hrs* to deliver your pet. We use two drivers/pet carers changing every 2 to 3 hrs when exercising our pets, minimising the duration of travel for our passengers, however we do stop for 6 hours break overnight for the safety of all on board.
We have European emergency cover to ensure that in the event of a breakdown your pet will be delivered safely.
*Please note this is the basic travel time from our collection points in France and Spain to Folkestone, our door to door service travel times will vary
