Now if you plan to move out of your hometown to a new city, state or even a country, you do not have to leave behind your baby pet. With Carry My Pet, you can trust to have your pet transported with all the love, care and precautions to your new home.
We know that you are going to have a lot of questions as to what and how. So, here we have a complete guide of how much it costs for pet transportation with Carry My Pet. But before we start, there are facts that must be rooted in your mind. It is essential to understand that pet transportation is expensive when compared to human travels. This is because a living pet is a liability and needs extra as well as special care, space and handling. Breaking it all down to simplify the details for you, here’s how it is done:
To begin with, let’s understand how Domestic Pet Transportation works. First things first, it is best to keep in mind that no two pet transportations can always cost the same. Keeping in mind all the services and modes into consideration, a domestic pet transportation can cost somewhere between 20000/- to 60000/- INR. The service involves parameters that are subject to change on distinctive variants:
This is one of the foremost steps while deciding to get your pet relocated to a newer destination. What is essential is to pick the right size of crate because your pet is going to spend all the time inside the crate while they are in the process of changing locations. Therefore, the crate needs to have enough but not more than enough space for your pet.
Now, what is important to do is, measure your pet to get the right sized crate. Well, that’s easy- all you need to do is measure your pet properly. Here are a few guidelines on how that can be done:
Based on these dimensions and certain calculations, an appropriate crate is finalized for the pet’s flight. Make sure to add those extra 4 inches to the calculated height of the pet so that there is enough headspace and the pet is not cramped in the crate. Once the sizing is rightly done, it is time to pick and order the same. The cost of the crate is definitely going to vary with the choice of the size, ranging between 5000-40000/- (INR) and you can always get the best and IATA certified crates from Carry My Pet Store.
When it comes to the documentations of your pet during a domestic pet transportation, it is a relief that you would not require things like a rabies anti-body or a microchip as a mandatory requirement. But having said that, you will surely not want to leave behind the other vaccination certificates of your baby.
The medical records are still a must as they ensure the immunity and past health history of your pet in case anything happens to the baby shortly. This is also essential to meet any unforeseen challenges that the pet might come in contact with sudden new surroundings.
You would also be required to keep with you a fitness certificate for your pet. This certification can be only produced if you have a timely check up of your pet. In case, you do not have access to any of the above certifications and documentations, you can always get in touch with Carry My Pet for detailed assistance which also includes taking care of all the necessary paperwork
Carry My Pet believes in re-uniting your baby with you and therefore, we leave no place or stone unturned to get to you. This is also majorly why we do not stick anyone of the three enlisted below modes of transportation, for neither can the airlines reach in every nook and corner, nor can we skip to reunite the pet family. Keeping this in notice, Carry My Pet thus has three modes of transportation namely, air, road and railways
I) Air– While we offer three ways for your pet to be transported, our favourite still is the airway.
How much does this cost?
There are many factors that can affect the cost of the airways as an option, but these are majorly the size and weight of the crate with the pet; the destination that you are travelling to; the flight boarding charges and the clearing charges; and the freight charges ranging from 10-30k basis volumetric weight.
- Airlines are always a faster option to reach a destination. What can take you around 36-48 hours by train, can be sufficed in as low as 10 to 12 hours, which also involves pick up from your doorstep, documentation procedure at the airport, boarding the flight, getting down at the destination and finally reaching to the pet parent’s house.
- This is a better option for your pet as well as they would not have to remain in motion for too long, which perpetually means that this will steal away the time of anxiety building and motion sickness from them.
- Airlines are not just the fastest but also the safest option. As per statistics, road and railways accidents are much more than the airlines. Therefore, the risk of meeting any misfortune incident can be skipped with the right choice of mode of transportation.
II). Road- Road is another means by which your pet can be transported and we love this option in scenarios where airlines or railways cannot be reach. There are times when you have to get your pet transported from a village or a highly unconnected remote area, in that cases, road comes as an handy option and we can still pick up your baby from your door to drop them off with all the love and care at your new house.
How much does this cost?
The cost of transporting your pet through your pet can vary as per the distance of the pick up points. On an average the cost ranges from 15 to 25 INR per km.
III). Railway- This mode of transportation remains unexplored by a lot of people but it certainly has good scope. Although, there are also some complexities that come along.
How much does this cost?
Railways can be a cheap mode of transportation and pocket-friendly, ranging from 10-20k INR, but this depends on factors that priority is the distance of the travel
- Choosing this mode of transportation means that you will have to book an entire coupe for your pet and yourself. If not the entire coupe, you will at least have to have two confirmed tickets in the coupe along with the acceptance from the follow passengers that they are comfortable while your pet travels along in the same coupe.
- You need to make sure to inform the on-board officer about your travel a day earlier.
- Since it is going to be a long journey, you need to make sure that your baby has all the essentials needed and does get room for movement during the long hours of travel.
International pet transportation can only be done by one way- which is the airlines. This can cost around 2 to 5 lakhs INR. Before we move ahead, it is essential to understand that the rules of pet transportation vary from country to country and so does the cost. While most of the countries follow a similar process, countries like Australia do not allow direct transportation of dogs from any country which is not rabies free. In this case, it is the duty of the pet parent to have the animal quarantined at a mid stop before relocating it to Australia. Factors like these and others that will be mentioned ahead can result in cost fluctuation
If you are planning to transport your pet from one country to another, crate is the first thing that you would require to have your hands on. This is not just for the day or time of travel, but would also be required beforehand to have proper training and habits incorporated in the behaviour of the pet. This is important as international travels can be long journeys and it is essential that your baby feels comfortable and not suffocated inside the crate.The foremost task to do before ordering a crate for your pet is to know which size would be the right fit. For this, it is mandatory to measure your pet to have a crate that is not too small or too big.
Here are a few guidelines on how that can be done
Based on these dimensions and certain calculations, an appropriate crate is finalized for the pet’s flight. Make sure to add those extra 4 inches to the calculated height of the pet so that there is enough headspace and the pet is not cramped in the crate. Once the sizing is done, you can go ahead and place an order for the right crate. It is advised to have an IATA proved crate for the safety for your pet.
When it comes to the documentations of your pet during an international pet transportation, as a parent you will have to have the right certification of rabies titer test, microchipping, vaccinations and fit-to-fly certificate. Without the absence of any of the above, your relocation could be delayed, until produced.
These certification can be only provided to the officials if you have a timely check up of your pet. It is possible not to have one or more of the above documents. It that case, you as a pet parent always have an option to reach out to Carry My Pet for detailed assistance that also includes managing all the necessary paperwork.
3. MODE OF TRANSPORTATION

How much does this cost?
