The Experts at Beltmann in Farmers Branch, TX Offer These Tips for International Moves with Pets

If you and your family are moving out of the country with your pet, the experts at Beltmann Moving and Storage of Dallas know how to make moves like this go smoothly.

At Beltmann Moving and Storage we have been helping families make international moves with and without their family pets for decades. We know how important your pets are to you and how hard it would be for your entire family if you had to leave them behind. At the same time, we also know the challenges of moving to another country, especially if you are taking your family pet with you. To help with your decision, our experts offer these three essential tips:

1. Keep It Legal

Every country in the world (the U.S. included) has laws regarding bringing animals in with you. Be sure you ask us to provide you with the latest information to ensure that you can bring your pet with. In most instances, the restrictions are for certain breeds such as pit bulls, rottweilers, and other breeds that are deemed to be “dangerous.” Some countries also require extensive quarantine periods for which you are required to cover the costs of housing, feeding, and caring for your pet.

2. Know the Rules

If your pet is moving overseas with you, chances are good that they are flying on at least one airline and quite possibly multiple carriers, which is common with international moves. Be sure you check with each airline your pet will be flying on to make sure everything you do for your pet meets the requirements of each carrier. This includes things like all the required documentation, the right type of carrier, and everything needed for your pet to travel through any country where they might be changing planes.

3. House Rules

Of course, before you book tickets for your pet, you need to make sure your new home (if it’s a rental) allows pets. Once you know your pet has a home, you need to look for vets in the area along with places to buy pet food (the type your pet eats), and places to take them to play.

If your next move is taking you and your family out of the country, taking the family pet on moves like this can be challenging. Call the experts at Beltmann Moving and Storage of Dallas at (214) 856-0095 and let us help make sure your move is stress-free.
