Our pet transport service is available for journeys long and short. We operate throughout the UK and use dedicated and reliable air conditioned vehicles. Vehicles are fitted with professional safety cages and we also carry portable pet carriers more suited to puppies and kittens.
Typically the short, local journeys we make include trips to the vets or groomers. Customers are often either housebound or don’t drive themselves. When owners are unable to get an appointment outside work hours we are able to attend these appointments on your behalf, with your authority.
Long distance pet transportation enquiries typically include house moves / relocations or the collection of a kitten or puppy from a breeder in a different part of the country.
In the UK if you want to transport pets a distance over 65km for monetary gain you require a licence.
The Type 1 Animal Transport Licence is for road journeys up to 8 hours in duration. The Type 2 licence covers journeys over this duration. Always ensure you use a licenced pet transport company.
A hard rigid pet carrier is usually the best way to transport a cat. The carrier should be large enough for the cat to stand up and turn around in. The base should be lined with something like vet bedding.
We own two sizes of rigid pet carrier to suit cats of all sizes.
Yes it’s much more common for a cat to be sick on a car journey than a dog. This is mostly due to stress and anxiety. Products like Feliway can help. Putting a favourite toy or something with a scent of home in the carrier is also worth trying.

Your pet is a loved member of your family and as such you want to be sure that you are using someone who is also passionate about animals. We treat all pets that we transport as if they were our own. Naturally this includes that they are watered and are able to take toilet breaks as and when needed.
