For the transportation of animals within Australia, most pets will travel in either a plastic or steel mesh crate appropriate to their size and breed. When relocating animals and pets overseas, smaller pets travel in plastic crates and larger ones, such as, dogs can travel in plastic or wooden crates made to meet the strict airline regulations.

When booking your transport with us, all crates used for overseas transport include a drinker. Smaller animals like birds and reptiles travel in wooden crates with steel mesh panels. The largest passengers will travel in their own custom built travel crates. The travel container selected will be correctly sized by our experienced custom built animal handlers, taking into account the regulations regarding size, breed, airline and if travelling overseas, the country of destination.
