    Default Pet transfer

    Have you moved your pets to NZ ? Can you provide me with a few recommendations? I received a quote from IPT. Would like to check out at least two others for comparison. If you have any insight would greatly appreciate it. We are location in California.

    Thanks!

    Where can I find details on what steps I need to take, if I choose to do this myself? I understand that certain tests and blood work need to be done at specific times.

    Any suggestions?

    Looking back, I think I could have done it myself, and being in CA is definitely as advantage, but it would require a lot of planning and more stress than paying for a company to help out. We ended up going with IPT when we moved from CO. Pug got here without a problem, only complaint (and others seem to agree) is the lack of communication when your pet is in transit.

    One more question for you G-Mo. I take it you handled all of the tests and certs on your own. But Air NZ stated that the animal must be transported by a pet transport company. We're you able to source a company that did only the air transport part without them also providing services for all of the tests? I. E you did the test work they just flew your pet.
