Shipping & Pets

Another question that is asked commonly online is regarding shipping of goods both to and from the US.

The general response:

Ask yourself if you REALLY need to take these things with you to and from the US. Shipping is incredibly expensive and can be a time consuming process. Where you can, avoid it at all costs.

If you do absolutely have to though…

To the US

To Australia

Shipping Pets

Shipping a pet is a stressful time for you (and your pet). Some companies that have been used and recommended before:

  • PetFlyers (personal recommendation from me)
  • Jet Pets
  • Dogtainers

International Pet Movers (+1 404 754-1909) apparently have some great advice too, to get you started.
