Importing your pet into the UK
We are able to perform and assist in all UK clearance procedures, including Pet Travel Scheme (PETS), Quarantine and Commercial. All of these UK Customs and Defra procedures are completed in house.
Why would my pet be considered a commercial import?
Below we have listed reasons why the UK and indeed the EU would class your pet as a commercial import.
You have owned your pet for less than six months. This includes transfer of ownership whether a rescue, gift, purchased or passed on from a family member.
If your pet is less than 6 months old.
If any of the above apply then you will be liable to pay import VAT. If you are at all unsure please feel free to contact us on +44 (0) 203 778 1190 or email email@example.com
If you are not able to attend the HARC or just prefer otherwise, we are able to deliver your pet to where ever you wish. For a quote please provide a UK postcode when contacting us.
