Planning a DIY Pet Move vs. Hiring PetRelocation

Hi PetRelocation,

What is the benefit of using your company as opposed to trying to do it all myself? I have a vet appointment scheduled for the blood tests for Hawaii.

I just want to see what I'd get when using you as a service.

Thank you,


Hi Scott,

Thanks, that's a great question! Essentially, hiring our service will save you time and provide peace of mind. It's possible for you to handle your own move, that just means it's up to you to research all travel requirements, adhere to the proper vaccination schedule, book your pets' flights and transport them to and from the airport (after they've cleared customs).

Especially with a place like Hawaii, where the requirements are a little strict, it's not unheard of to make a mistake or simply to feel overwhelmed. People who hire us have decided to minimize their own stress by handing off these preparation tasks to experts who move pets every day and have vast experience handling all kinds of situations. In particular, our pet travel specialists know what to do if something unexpected arises and will always have a contingency plan in place so that pets are kept safe throughout their journey.

Hiring assistance means the trip will be more expensive, of course, but most people find it well worth the money. Here's a look at a few stories from our recent clients if you'd like more specific examples of how things work and the emotions involved in the process.

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any more questions, and if you'd like to connect with one of our consultants, you can contact us here.

Aloha and good luck with your travels to Hawaii!
