Moving overseas with your pet?

“Pet travel”, “pet shipping”, and “ship my pet” are terms you may have put into Google in order to get the information you need as you have taken the lifechanging decision to ‘up sticks’ and the wheels are in motion for a fresh start abroad; but, for many of us moving our families does not just involve people, and that’s where the services of TailWings Pet Travel come into their own.

Whether it be a cat, dog or ‘Gary the Goldfish’, our pets are part of our extended family, and we wouldn’t be without them. With us, you can be assured that whether your pet has fluff, feathers or fins, they will be able to join you wherever you’re moving to, making sure you have your creature comforts with you, wherever you are in the world. TailWings takes the hassle out of international pet travel; find everything you need to know about pet relocation here.

Moving your pet overseas from the UK

Pet relocation is no longer a convoluted, problematic process. We have around 30 years of experience in the pet travel industry, meaning we can deal with everything from crates to customs and advise you on the whole process needed for the successful and trouble-free carriage of your pet. We provide you with a whirlwind of organisation at Heathrow and all ports throughout the UK; we will have everything covered to help make you and your global pet relocation as painless as possible. All this without bombarding you with a confusing website full of links and text to read; in fact, we keep any necessary links here, making everything easy to find on one page.

Importing your pet to the UK

We can also help with bringing your pets into the UK; if you’re looking for pet relocation back to the UK, we will act as a liaison between the airlines, the Heathrow Animal Reception Centre (HARC), and of course, you to make sure your pet/s get back safely. Prior to your pet, or pets arriving safely, we would already have sent you the information you need for you to come and collect them. This will be from the HARC or, as agreed, delivered from us to you – just discuss your requirements with our team, and they can make it happen.
