How Petrelocation pricing works
Whether you hire us, another company, or DIY your pet’s move, there are required costs you will need to pay to ensure their relocation is safe, successful, and legal. If you hire us for Complete Relocation Support, we will walk you through your options and discuss required costs with you every step of the way so you can make the best decisions for your furbaby (or babies) and prepare financially.
The exact cost of your pet(s) move will depend on many factors including transport availability, your timeline, the number of pets, their types, and breeds.
The one cost that is absolutely fixed and in our company’s full control is our Service Fee. We charge a fixed fee for the time, expertise, coaching, and ongoing communication our team will provide when you hire us. This $2,000 fee is due as a deposit to make your Complete Relocation Support reservation.
While we cannot provide you with a fixed quote for the total cost of your pet(s) move at this stage, the table below is an example of what it typically costs when someone hires us to relocate 1 small pet into the United States.
The costs of vet visits and a travel crate are not included in the example price sheet above. For more information, here’s a full guide on how to calculate the cost of your pet(s) move.
