Our packers and movers in Lenexa can help you plan your international move.

There are many challenges that come with making an international move with your family. But when you add in the idea of taking the family pet with you, things become even more difficult if you don’t have a little help and guidance. Depending on the country you are moving to the amount of paperwork, preparatory medical requirements, and quarantine required can seem overwhelming. To help you off on the right track, our expert packers and movers offer these helpful tips.

1. Check All Regulations

Just because you love your particular breed of pet doesn’t mean that they are welcome in every country in the world. Be sure you know that your pet is permitted to enter the country and that you have completed all the necessary medical steps needs and have all required documentation. Keep in mind the regulations may vary greatly depending on the country you are moving to.

2. Talk to the Airlines

Every airline in the world has their own rules and regulations with regards to transporting pets. You should check with every airline your pet will be flying with to make sure you meet them. A single carrier is the best way to go, but with international flights, this is not always possible. You should also make sure you can check on the location of your pet at any time during his voyage.

3. Location, Location, Location

When it comes to taking your pet with you on an international move, you need to do your homework before you get too far into making arrangements. Look for pet care facilities including vets and veterinary hospitals, places to buy supplies, even parks you can take your dog for walks in. According to our packers and movers, one of the most important things you can do if you plan to live in a rental home, is to find out if you are permitted to have pets.
