Default Pet Shipping Fees

Hi,

I've had quotes for shipping my 3 ragdoll cats to NZ

One quote was from Heathrow £2547 (which would be nightmare as we live in Scotland)
The other quote was from Edinburgh £2997

I think these quotes are reasonable as everything is covered. Anyone agree ?
My mum near fainted lol told her i even if it was £10k i would sell everything i've got to get them there i love my babies

A friend of ours was £3k for one dog

I feel the same way about my dog. I have been quoted £1800 plus injections to move her, this will be more than our flights. People say I am crazy, but I wouldn't enjoy being there without her.

We are expecting to pay at least €10k for the transport and 30-day quarantine of our three pets (2 dogs, 1 cat). As others have said, leaving them behind is not an option. We are their pack and they are our family.

We are looking at £5500 with Airpets, plus about £1000 in vets fees beforehand to ship our two greyhounds

Airpets have been lovely and have answered all my neurotic queries . Golden Arrow have not bothered to return my phone calls or post me any information . I guess they are so busy they don't need my business. I must admit I was disappointed as many people on this forum say they are wonderful .

Airpets suits us as we can drop the pups off at Heathrow and pick them up in Auckland, so we are away from them for the shortest possible time, hopefully only 36 hours or so.

The money people spend on shipping cars and whatnot, I can't understand why the gasps of horror about pet shipping fees. Like you guys, I'd pay anything to keep them with me. I'd be more likely to leave hubby behind

I quite agree about bring the cats. We brought ours (a couple of ordinary, youngish, rescue cats) at my insistence and at the cost of several thousand pounds (three years ago) but they travelled fine and as soon as they arrived everybody agreed that we had a home again even in a rental.

We left ours behind with Nicola's mum and dad to be sent on once we had somewhere to live. We were in Berwick but the cats flew from Heathrow - the company supplied boxes and I think transported them down, kept them at their place for a few days before they flew.

here are some photos on Nicolas blog

good luck

peter
