Who We Are
We are a small, family owned Pet Taxi business that has a proud history of animal transportation that goes back over 100 years to our great great Uncle Mark who was a licensed carter who transported poultry and small animals by horse and cart around Devon and Cornwall in early 1800s.
Professional Pet Transport Across The UK
Unlike some other carriers we do not do multidrops or carry mixed loads. We only ever go direct door to door which minimises travel times, reduces stress and ensures biosecurity. We truly care about your pets needs, and so we have chosen to specialise in transporting small pets around the UK, which means we can ensure your pets are cherished and loved, as if they were our own.
Our vehicle is purpose built and designed with your pets safely and comfort in mind. We hold a full type 2 Defra transport license, which is a legal requirement to ensure the highest standards of animal welfare during transportation, and should an emergency arise all of our drivers are trained in Pet first aid.
We can provide one way or round trip transportation to veterinarians, groomers, trainers, boarding establishments, airports, or any other place your pet needs to be. In addition we carry out long distance ground transport, hospital transfers, airport services and pet removals. Collection to and from port terminals can be arranged.
We also have a specialist Bird Transport Division- we can transport your hawks, owls and parrots wherever they need to go, securely in a purpose built travel box.
Meet The Team

All our customers have plenty of space to travel in our climate controlled vehicles. There is never any compromise and we treat them as our own until we deliver them safely to your hands in our door to door service.
