The Experts at Beltmann Are Here to Help with International Moves Involving Pets
When it comes to pets and moves out of the country, the experts at Beltmann Moving and Storage of Ft. Lauderdale are here to help
When it comes to moves out of the country, the whole process can be complicated at best. But when you add a family pet into the equation, the entire process can become very challenging, if you are not familiar with the process. There is paperwork to deal with, vet checkups to schedule, quarantine arrangements to make in your new country (if required), and so much more to deal with. Here at Beltmann Moving and Storage, our experts offer these helpful tips to make things go a lot easier for your move.
1. Know the Laws and Regulations
Every country in the world has their own laws and regulations regarding the importation of pets. First, you need to be sure that your family pet is permitted in your new home country. Some countries have species and breed restrictions. For example, France does not allow Pitbulls to be brought into their country. You also need to make sure your pet meets all medical requirements such as immunizations and have all necessary paperwork.
2. Know the Airline Regulations
When it comes to international moves, each airline your pet will be flying on has their own rules and regulations your pet, and their carrier must meet. Be sure to contact every airline your pet will be flying on to make sure you have everything in place to ensure a smooth flight from your old home to your new one, including if they have to change flights or airlines (especially in another country).
3. Know Your New Home
Be sure you take the time to make sure your pet will be welcome in your new home (if you are renting) before you book their flight. You should also search for vets, pet supply stores, and places where you can take your pet for exercise if needed. The more you know before you go, the easier it will be for your family pet to join you in your new home.
