How uShip Works
"Very responsible and compassionate..."

Used Nana and Papa's Pet Transport to ship my foster dogs from CT to Canada. Excellent service and communication. Very responsible and compassionate with this elderly pair. Got them to their new forever home in a timely manner. Highly recommend and will use again.

"I would definitely use uShip again!!"

I needed to ship a puppy back to the breeder in Phoenix, AZ. I was able to find someone who was driving to this area and she was kind enough to take my pup with her. It was really easy to reach her when I needed to and the delivery was on time just as planned. I would definitely use uShip again!! Thanks!

How to Properly Arrange Pet Shipping

Moving from one place to another can be a stressful experience for you and your pet, but it does not have to be. uShip provides an online forum for finding pet transporters who will take excellent care of your pet and give you a break on prices because they are heading along that route anyway. Your pet provides companionship on the road and does not suffer the anxiety and dangers of air travel.

You may be moving across the country, adopting a pet as part of a shelter rescue, or caring for a loved one’s pet while that person is out of the country. Regardless of the reason for transporting your pet, it is important to do your research when arranging for pet transport.

One key consideration is buying a travel kennel that is the right size and style for your pet, the mode of transport and the amount of time your pet will be inside. This is one of the best ways to ensure the comfort and safety of your pet during transit. When arranging the transport with your company of choice, you should ask about how often they will stop for water breaks, what the feeding schedule will be and if your pet will be able to get out and explore. Sometimes uShip transporters like to let your pet ride along in the cab, so it is a good idea to ask about that if it is something that you strongly do or do not prefer.

Shipping a pet internationally adds considerably to the complexity of the transport. Each country has its own requirements, paperwork and health standards. Contact a veterinarian or other pet specialist well in advance of the trip to make sure you can complete all the requirements in time for your pet to accompany you overseas.

With domestic or international transport, always ask the transport company for its registration and insurance information and for customer references. Fortunately, uShip makes the process of finding high-quality, reliable pet transporters very easy.

We want you to be as comfortable as possible with transporting your pet. Visit our cost to ship a pet page for more insight into the whole process. There you can get an up close look at previous pet shipping transactions as they happened in the uShip marketplace. Being familiar with how the shipping process works adds to your confidence level when it comes time to hand your pet over to his/her transporter.
