How Much Does Pet Travel Cost?
When researching pet transport options, it's natural that one of the first questions most people have is, “how much does it cost to move my pet?”
Unfortunately it's difficult to answer this question right away due to the complex nature of pet travel. Every move is different, and depending on where you're going, who you're bringing, and when your move is, prices range significantly.
Specifically, here are a few factors that affect the price of a pet move:
Pet size (weight, height and length)
Proximity to a major airport
Time of year
Whether or not you have a travel crate
Whether or not your pet is up to date on their rabies and other vaccines
Whether or not your pet is microchipped
