Pet Travel Question: Building Custom Crates

Name: Jessica
Number of Pets: Two
Pet Type: Dogs
Pet Breed: Great Danes
From: Hawaii
To: Tennessee

We will be PCS due to army orders from Hawaii to Tennessee in 2-3 months. We have two Great Danes that we are taking with us and are trying to figure out the best airline to take and who can accommodate the size of their crates. I have had some airlines turn me down because the crates won't fit in the doorways, and some tell me that they can't get them anywhere close to Tennessee. Please give me any information you can.

Thank You,

Hi Jessica,

Hopefully we can help you sort out your move! Custom crates definitely make things more interesting, but it sounds like you're on the right track by calling ahead to discuss your options with the airlines. We advise choosing a pet-friendly carrier such as United, so give them a call if you have yet to do so.

If you're unable to fly directly into your desired destination, it will be necessary to find a way to transport your pets on the ground. If you decide to hire PetRelocation we would arrange for the dogs to be picked up at the airport and then driven to your home. For a complimentary consultation, please visit our site.

Please give us a call if you have any more questions or concerns, and good luck with the move!
