Top Pet Transport related questions

In most cases, no, but you may want to provide toys and other items your pet needs for their comfort. If your pet feels more secure and comfortable staying in a pet carrier it’s more familiar with; then you can provide this to your pet transport expert. You can also provide them with their favourite snacks and a blanket to keep them warm and calm during their trip.

That depends on how far your pet must travel to their destination. Should their destination be a nearby address, the trip shouldn’t take more than your usual travel time to and from that location. If you are moving house and need to get your pet to another state, expect a long drive and allow for stops that your pet transport expert will do to check on and feed your pet, let them relieve themselves and clean out any messes they made in the pet carrier. 

Yes, of course! If you offer pet transport services but are short on labour, you can definitely hire your nearest pet service specialist to assist.

The key to finding the right Tasker is making a post with all the vital details about what you need - this will pique the interest of potential Taskers with the right skills.  

In most cases, no. Should you hire a pet feeding service, they’re tasked to do exactly that and perhaps do a little extra like clean your pets feeding implements or give your pets their medication after a meal. For pet feeding service providers to transport your pet is asking beyond the scope and capabilities of their services. It would be best if you specifically hired pet taxi or transport services instead. 

Yes. If you need someone to take your pet long-distance, you can hire a Tasker to do this. The service isn’t limited to transporting your beloved cat, dog, bird, lizard or other pet to a nearby address. You can find Taskers with the skills, experience and willingness to transport your pet cross-country safely or to another state. Be sure to include your pet’s exact pick-up location and destination to get the right Tasker. 

Yes! Pet transport services aren’t limited to your four-legged furry (or even hairless) felines or canines. You can find a transport service for almost any type of pet, whether it’s a bird, fish, lizard, rodent, rabbit or another sort of pet. The key to finding the right transport service for your pet is to make a post on Airtasker with all the crucial details about your pet and its needs. 


What do pet transport services include?

Pet transport services include all the necessary activities to transport your pet safely, whether it’s a dog, cat, bird, lizard or other animals. The service can include fetching your pet, making pit stops, sending you updates, and finally, getting your pet to its destination. 

Picking up your pet

On the day and time of your scheduled pet transport service, your hired pet transporter can go to the address you specify and fetch your pet. Your specialist takes care to place your pet in their designated carrier, placing them securely in the vehicle. They also ensure that your pet has proper ventilation during the trip.  

Making pit stops for your pet

If the trip is long or your pet has needs that must be taken care of, your pet transporter can make pit stops. As much as possible, your transporter will make these pit stops at safe locations along the way, such as convenience stores or petrol stations. They can check on your pet to ensure that they are comfortable in the vehicle and clean up any messes they left in the pet carrier. 

Pet transporters can give your pet some snacks and water to ensure they stay sated and hydrated, allow them to relieve themselves; then your pet transporter cleans up afterwards. Some transporters can give them medications and allow them to stretch their legs for a bit if possible. 

Sending pet updates

While at a pit stop, at a requested time or upon your request, your pet transporter can give you updates on your pet. Your hired pet transporter can send pictures, real-time video or a combination of both via a free messaging app of your choice. They can send updates only when it’s safe to do so - such as when the vehicle is at a full stop.

Dropping off your pet

Once your pet transporter has arrived at the destination, they can bring your beloved pet directly to you. They can take the pet to your front door, then turn over your pet to you or someone you specify in your service contract.  

Pet transporters won’t leave your pet outside your door and insist that someone - you or a person you assign, to receive the pet. If you aren’t present to receive your pet, they can ask for the ID of the person you assign before they turn over your pet.
