How Pet Travel Works With Us

Love From Across The World

  • I just imported a puppy from Spain and it was a nerve wracking experience but the last leg was handled by Transcontinental Pet Movers and that part was great. I worked with Timothy and he made it easy and painless and I can't say enough good things about him. He was very knowledgeable, calm, thorough, and responsive and he understood how important this was to me. The puppy had to be in a crate for at least 18 hours and that's a LONG time for a 4 month old puppy! They cleaned up the puppy and the crate so thoroughly that I would never have known there had been a big mess if they hadn't told me. I'd say they went above and beyond. All in all, it was the perfect ending to a long, scary ride. For me, mostly. Thanks, Transcontinental.

    Transcontinental was amazing in relocating my dog. Timothy was responsive, answering my questions over the weekend and in the evenings. He didn't miss a single detail. Due to COVID, routes were constantly changing, but Timothy was able to stay ahead of the changes and would quickly propose alternate routes that got my dog to me in the most direct way possible. Other companies were proposing extremely long flights with multiple layovers that would have been exhausting and stressful for my pup. I had to arrange for a vet health check over time zones and bad internet. Tim went above and beyond and found a vet close to my mom’s house that would upload the health certificate online so we could meet the certificate validity period. I emailed Tim an hour after the vet appointment to tell him that my dog’s appointment went well, and he told me that he had already followed up with the vet and was double-tracking the USDA application from his side. Timothy was extremely professional, courteous, and personable. I would absolutely recommend anyone moving their pets to go with Transcontinental. The price was competitive, and the service was excellent. Our family is so happy to have our puppy with us again.

    If you need prompt support and advice on transferring your pet internationally, Tim would be the go to person! Tim helped with the transfer of my dog from US to Singapore. Due to complications, we did experience unplanned events. However, throughout the process, Tim was supportive and able to provide sound advice which is a relief to the already stressed situation. Communication was prompt and timely which definitely helped! Picture of my baby arriving safely at destination! Thank you Tim!

  • I could not recommend Cordelia and her team more. They know this business and all its nuances. We had a paperwork issue in that my baby Bear would not be able to get on the plane with me, I was upset, crying and worried out of my mind as we were moving from the USA to Ireland and we had to get on the plane. We missed the deadline to submit 1 page of the paperwork. After Cordelia calmed me down she drove straight to my vet got the original needed drove back to SFO and GOT MY BABY ON THE PLANE WITH ME. She is super woman and understands her business, and the precious cargo they organize for their customers. If you need to freight an animal THID is the ONLY company to call

    We had a great experience - everything we had to do was clearly explained, and everything else was taken care of by Timothy and his team. Timothy is meticulous over the details which really helped me feel like I didn’t have to worry about anything (especially because the UK is quite finicky over vaccination records). Our cat was picked up from our house in San Francisco and safely delivered to London Heathrow. We received lots of pictures along the way when possible, and we felt she was in safe hands the whole time. Truly as stress free as it could have been. Can’t recommend Transcontinental Pet Movers enough!

    Really, really like these guys. Although we didn't eventually go through with the whole process because our pet had some relapse seizures and was ultimately deemed unsafe to fly, we nonetheless had a wonderful experience with Timothy and Co. He is incredibly fast, responsive, knows his stuff, and answers emails point by point and never misses anything. And, to boot, his prices were among the best. We were intending to take a pet to Australia, which has arguably the toughest restrictions, and Timothy navigated it all with a breeze. You really can't go with these guys. Just give them a call, wherever you are intending to take your beloved pet.

  • I cannot express how grateful we are to Timothy and the Transcontinental Pet team for all their hard work on our behalf. Not only did they get back to us promptly (and weeks later I am still getting only initial contacts from other places we reached out to) but the price was within our budget and accurate. After a number of missteps on our part, and with Timothy's help, we got my son and his cat back to the UK in far less time than we had been warned of by other pet movers! When the port was closed due to Covid and the pet health certificate was due to expire, Timothy simply loaded the cat into a van and drove her from San Francisco to LA so she could fly on the same day as my son's flight and arrive at Heathrow at very nearly the same time. Yes, it was a (reasonable) extra cost, but regardless, that is truly going the extra mile. He sent us photos of her resting in comfort for her one overnight of boarding, and it really helped set our minds at ease. I would highly recommend Transcontinental Pet Movers and cannot thank Timothy in particular for his problem solving, hand-holding, and communication at every step in the process.

    Timothy is honestly the best! After contacting over 10 agencies Transcontinental was the only company that made me feel like they actually cared. Timothy worked with me over 3 different time zones and bent over backwards to help me. Even before we enlisted his services he took the time to explain the process and ways we could go about the big move. He was always around to answer my calls and texts, the man never sleeps! I truly felt like my dog was with a friend. He even waited outside the endorsement office for hours just to speed things along. His honesty was so refreshing, I felt confident in his ability to get my dog home. Above and beyond expectations. Exceptional service and care for an incredibly fare price. 10/10 would recommend absolutely anyone to use Transcontinental Pet Movers. They made a complicated process easy. Thanks Timothy and team!!!

    Tim's invaluable assistance was absolutely essential for my puppy and me to successfully relocate from Los Angeles to Singapore. He was available round the clock, offering his support through email and phone communication. His generosity in helping us was remarkable, and I firmly believe that the value of his service exceeds its cost. Thanks again, Tim!

    I'd like to sincerely thank them for helping me with transporting my pet from LA to Beijing safely during this special COVID-19 situation. They were fully responsible for what they were doing and exactly knew what they were capable of. As a valued customer, I highly recommend them to anyone who needs qualitative service and decent information regarding live animal transportation. They will handle your pet safely and carefully!

    Went through a long process with Timothy to relocate my cat from USA to Singapore.. Although it's long Timothy was always patient and professional, we finally had my cat landed after six months from the initiation of the process. Thanks a lot and would recommend others to go with Transcontinetal Pet Movers's pet transportation service!

    We recently sought the assistance of Timothy at Transcontinental Pet Movers to help us navigate the complex process of relocating my daughter's beloved cat to the UK. From the outset, Timothy was consistently available for consultations via phone or email, and he promptly addressed any questions or concerns we had about the export process. In hindsight, I would have entrusted Timothy with handling all aspects of transportation and paperwork. The do-it-yourself approach proved to be incredibly stressful, as there are numerous details involved in moving a pet internationally by cargo. This includes the completion of paperwork, arranging cargo shipping, adhering to kennel specifications, coordinating with clearing agents for customs clearance, navigating heat embargoes, and managing concerns about potential flight delays or cancellations. Throughout the entire process, Timothy's guidance provided much-needed reassurance that we were on the right track to ensure a safe journey for my daughter’s cat. Ultimately, the cat arrived in the UK on the same flight as my daughter, and everything went smoothly. We are grateful for Timothy's expertise and professionalism, and we highly recommend Transcontinental Pet Movers to anyone facing a similar situation.

  • Professional, experienced. There are so many "company" out there provide animal/pet transport service, and of course I've reached out to multiple carriers before finalized my pick. The reason why I pick them among all the other carriers is because how they treat their clients. I am new to this so I want someone that cares, and that is what I feel through out our conversation. Their respond time is the fastest, explanation is the clearest and detailed, which is why I say professional and experienced in the first place. Highly recommend!

    Transcontinental was able to help me move my dog from California to the UK on pretty short notice with a plethora of difficulties and restrictions as a result of COVID. My representative, Timothy, was extremely communicative and timely and even sent me photos of my dog during his journey to help put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to relocate a pet abroad!
