How do I transport my pet across the country?
The best way to transport your pets from one state to another within the US is by air. If you aim to travel with your pet, you can carry the smaller exemplars in a kennel in the cabin with you as carry-on luggage. If the pet is bigger, it will be checked in as luggage.
Check with the airlines if your breed and species of pet are allowed to travel in the aircraft, if yes then make a reservation for your pet. Airlines require dog kennels to offer enough space for the dog to be able to stand, sit, lie down, and turn around comfortably. The kennel should be rigid, leak-proof, and have provisions for food and water. You must also make sure to label the kennel with your own contact information.
Get all the health certificates and shots ready from your veterinarian, a week before travel. Ensure the safety of your pet with a sturdy leash and make sure that your pet has an ID tag and a microchip with emergency contact information.
How does pet transport companies work?
We are one of the leading companies to provide pet transport in Los Angeles at affordable prices. We choose to transport your pets with those airlines that offer climate-controlled baggage space for pets during their entire travel. The services covered under our pet transport include,
- Making necessary flight arrangements
- Preparing all the import and export documents
- Picking up and dropping off the pet from and to the owner’s residence
- Checking in the pet at the departure airport
- Getting the pet cleared through customs upon arrival
The cost of transporting your pet through a pet transport company is calculated based on the pick up and drop from and to the airports, fee for preparing documentation, import fees, and travel ticket charges for the pet. When you choose to fly your pet in cargo, you have to pay a fee based on the dimensional weight of the dog kennel.
Transporting your pet safely
Making the travel arrangements for your pet transport all by yourself is certainly possible, but you will save a lot of time, money and effort when you leave it to professionals. Pet transport companies specialize in the safe and secure delivery of your pet at your new residence.
Many pet owners often worry about extreme temperatures in aircraft, which can affect the pet's well-being and health. Talk to your airlines in advance about the climate and controlled-temperature levels and pet’s exposure to inclement weather conditions in the baggage area.
It's important to crate train your pet a week before your travel to avoid your pet from escaping or getting hurt. Get in touch with SCApet today to learn more about pet transport in Los Angeles.Pet Transport Los Angeles
