Pet relocation

When relocating to a new country there are always a number of practical matters which need to be arranged. A new house, schools, (health) insurances, making sure that you and your family members adjust to the new changes quickly. There is another important matter which is often not highlighted, but is definitely as important and that is the removal of your household pets.

To some of us they are like extended family – at least to me my dog Kramer is. Right or not I always tell Kramer (my dog) that he is my favourite (family member)! So naturally when considering the relocation of such an important family member you only want the best for him/her and that their best interests are taken care of.

Animals are very sensitive to us and their environment, they notice when change is in the air; so it is important to create a stress free environment and to stick to your regular routine as much as possible during this transition period. Our pets strive on stability, by keeping their daily routine as regular as possible and feeding times the same; this can ensure that your pet stays calm during this hectic time. We at Boxx understand the importance of safe & comfortable travel for your household pet, and we are confident that we can provide an excellent service.
