"Mandy is a very friendly and responsible person. She went out of her way to meet us beforehand and discuss the petsitting tasks required. We were able to go away knowing that our very old dog was in good hands. Muffy was well cared for by Mandy. Will definitely contact Mandy if petsitting is needed in the future. "

Top Pet Taxi related questions

What is a pet taxi?

A pet taxi is a service that can bring your pet to and from places, whether you can accompany them or not. It’s like getting a sitter and chauffeur for your pet in one or finding a cab that will allow you to bring your pet along. This is useful for times when you’re too busy to drop off your pet to their appointment, or your car broke down, and you can’t take your pet on public transportation.

Do pet taxi services need a licence?

Pet taxis in countries like the UK are required to register with the DEFRA and have an Animal Transport Licence. When you request a pet taxi service on Airtasker, you’ll want to ask prospective Taskers for proof of these credentials and make sure the driver has these documents when they go to pick up your pet. This step helps avoid any delays on your pet’s trip and makes sure that your pet stays safe while on the road.

Where can I find a pet taxi service near me?

You can find a pet taxi near you right here on Airtasker! To start, tap the “Post a task” button and fill out the form. Be sure to include your pet’s pickup and drop-off points, your budget, and the date and time you want the service to stop by. Then, tap “Get quotes” and wait for offers from nearby Taskers. Once you find an offer you like, tap to confirm, and you’re all set!

What should I ask my pet taxi service?

First, ask your pet taxi service about their licence and registration. Then, ask Taskers about their experience with pet transportation, particularly with your kind of pet (be it a large dog or an exotic lizard). Then, ask them how you can best prepare your pet for transportation, such as packing a bag with treats and water or providing a soothing toy.

Can a pet taxi transport my pet across the country?

While this may depend on the readiness and availability of Taskers in your area, our pet taxi service typically doesn’t cover long-distance moves and does not include transportation via airlines. For example, in the UK, a Type 1 Animal Transport Licence only covers up to 8 hours of road travel, while a Type 2 Licence lets one transport animals for journeys over 8 hours.

How can I prepare my pet for a pet taxi?

First, make sure your pet is healthy - make sure they have up-to-date vaccinations (if applicable) and don’t have any diseases that could spread from animal to animal in the taxi. Next, help your pet get used to being in their crate or enclosure. Prepare a seat belt specifically for the carrier. Finally, make sure your pet has the necessary items for their trip such as the details for their grooming appointment, food, and water - and make sure your pet taxi service knows when and how to give them.

What does a pet taxi service include?

Our pet taxi service covers transporting your pet (and in some cases, you as well) to another location. If you aren’t there to accompany your pet, you can also have your Tasker wait at the vet or groomer, then take your pet back home. This is great for pet owners who can’t leave their house unattended, are moving to a new location, or need a pet-friendly transportation option.

 

While your needs and the type of Tasker you get may vary, here’s what you can expect from a typical pet taxi driver here on Airtasker:

 

Animal taxi delivery for different animals

Airtasker doesn’t limit you to a dog taxi service - you can transport cats, rabbits, birds, and even reptiles - as long as they’re in appropriate carriers or enclosures, and there’s a Tasker who’s willing to accommodate your pet (or pets). 

 

Transporting pets with their owner

If you’re a pet owner without a car, or if your usual means of getting around isn’t available, our pet taxi service can help you, and your pet get around. Since not all cabs can accommodate animals, and some pets get nervous around crowds, having a ride to yourselves may be the best option for you and your animal companion.

 

Taskers can pick you up, drop you off at your desired location, and even wait to bring you home afterwards.

 

Transporting pets only

Having to make your pet travel by themselves can be extremely nerve-wracking, but working with a rated and reviewed pet taxi driver can make you and your pet feel safer. Your pet will be treated as a VIP (not just a package that you’re shipping off). If you really can’t accompany your pet to their appointment due to an emergency, your Tasker can pick up your pet, make sure they have a safe ride, then drop them off at your desired location. If you like, you can ask your Tasker to send pictures as proof that your dog, cat, rabbit, or bird is doing and feeling great. 

 

Transporting and minding pets

Need your Tasker to be both a chauffeur and a sitter? We can help you find someone who fits the bill. If you need a Tasker to watch your pet at the groomer or pet salon, you can ask them to do so (note this may incur additional fees). 

 

They might be able to take pictures to send to you, and they can help your pet feel more comfortable even while you’re away. Once the appointment is done, they’ll bring your pet back to their carrier or enclosure, drive to your home, and bring your beloved pet back to you.

Pet Cat Courier Melb - Central Coast NSW

$300

Sydney NSW Australia

23rd Sep 2021

Hey :) I’ve had a family emergency and have to relocate from Melbourne to my family home on the Central Coast of NSW. I was hoping I could find someone to help me transport my cat (domestic medium hair, 6yrs old, male, 5kgs, too affectionate). He’s very very very sweet - he has some cognitive disabilities so he is quite timid but very affectionate and not cat/dog aggressive. It might be a little idealistic, but I’d love to be able to head back to NSW some time from the 27th of Sep - 1st Oct. If anyone is able to help me out I would be so so appreciative.

I could not recommend Peter highly enough! He went above and beyond to make sure my mid-pandemic interstate move was as stress-free as possible. You can tell he genuinely cares about the people and pets he works with. Thank you so much, it wouldn’t have been home without my gross cat ❤️
