Let's face it. Whether relocating or going on vacation, traveling is stressful. So much to arrange, pack and think about. We can help enormously by handling the transport of your pet, safely and comfortably. We have relocated over 2,000 pets for pet parents.

Pet Travel Transport's ground service stands out by prioritizing personalized care and attention for your pets. We understand the unique needs of each pet and tailor our approach to meet those requirements.

No bulk transports

Unlike other transporters who provide bulk transporting in large vans, our service distinguishes itself by avoiding large group transports. Instead, we specialize in private and semi-private transports, ensuring that each pet receives individualized attention and care throughout the journey.

Our drivers take the time to get to know their furry passengers, bonding with them so to lighten any stress your pet may have during the journey.

Our fleet

Our fleet comprises of SUVs and passenger vans, all equipped to provide a comfortable and secure environment for our precious cargo. We have no cargo vans in our fleet.

We service Canada and Alaska!

We now provide pet and auto service to both Canada and Alaska. Our drivers provide a safe and comfortable ride across the border avoiding long trips in the cargo hold. Perfect for snub-nosed breeds who are restricted from flying.

We transport vehicles too!

Need help with getting your car to your destination? We can transport it along with your pet!

Communication is the key

We have a full time, very accessible Ground Transport Coodinator who oversees the entire process of transporting your pet.

You will be impressed at how we keep you informed during the transport. Our drivers' communication skills are nothing less than superb. Texts and pictures will be sent every 3-4 hours.

All clients can conference wtih their drivers before pickup to ask any questions or voice concerns about their pet.


Although our charges may be slightly more than bulk transport services, the quality of service you and your pet will receive cannot be compared. We understand that cost is a concern and we do everything we can to serve all our clients.

The value of a pet to its family cannot be overstated. Your pet is worth the individual services that we provide. Just see what our clients say about us or scroll down and see more comments from our clients.

See what our clients are saying...


The service Gabbi and Nancy provided was wonderful! I'm very happy now that I finally have my chinchillas at home where they belong! Gabbi and Nancy have shown the utmost professionalism that my only regret is not going with your company much sooner. (I've been living here for 6 months).

The boys are so happy together. Shiva took about 1 hour to adjust and calm down from excitement. He got out of the car with Jimmy and was absolutely fine. No stress, no trauma, nothing but happiness. Delivered to us happy and safe! We will surely recommend your service should anyone need dog transport. We will surely call you again if we need to. Thank you,
Peri, Arlen, Shiva and Titus

I would just like to thank you for your service for delivering my two dogs safely to NY. I appreciate what the drivers and you have done for them. Again thank you very much.

2022 has been a total dumpster fire for me and my husband, but folks like you we've met along the way have made this rough road a lot more bearable and constantly restored my faith in the goodness of people.

I will say this has been a very pleasant experience. You guys did what you said you were going to do with no surprises involved. Very professional!!

Thank you! It is already getting chilly, and the leaves are changing colors. WE LOVE IT!! Again, we can't thank y'all enough for being out there to do these things, and for having drivers like Andrea and Doug who are extremely caring and willing to help in any way they can. It was extremely comforting to know they cared, and that they kept sending pictures. I will definitely get on and give a stelar review! Thanks again. Much love!!

Thank you so much for everything. The transporters Nancy and Marina were amazing, excel my expectations. All your service is A+. I'm really happy with my decision to chose your company.

You were the answer to my prayers...a Christmas Angel and a Christmas Miracle. From the bottom of all of our hearts, thank you. Melanie got Buddy and has sent pictures and a video. This last few days have been extremely stressful (until you came into our lives). Can you tell that I did not sleep last night until I knew that Buddy was safe and sound? Now I can sleep!!! Thank you for giving our family the gift of peace this Christmas and for your help rescuing our sweet Buddy.

We just moved to Italy and we had to relocate our Guinea pig. Pet Travel Transport delivered nothing but the best service. Campbell and his partners were extraordinary. We definitely recommend their service.

We had a cross country move from Ca to Fl and needed to get 2 cats and a dog to our new home. Gabbi guided me through the process every step of the way and was a delight to work with! Our driver, Riley, was in constant communication and became best friends with our pets. :) I can't recommend this company enough... if you need any type of move for your pets, please call them! Thanks so much for everything, you guys are the best!

I want to thank you very much for your efforts to get Ace back home fast and safe. You were the only agency that took on the challenge of a short notice plus a complex transfer. Jermaine and Alan did a great job taking care of Ace and also updating my how his well-being and progress throughout the trip. My family really appreciated it.

Thank you again for the hard work and effort. Ace is now with his family and now the relocation is complete :)

We could not have been happier with Riley. He took wonderful care of George and he picked up and delivered exactly as he promised. Thanks for the great service.

The transport was perfect! Tons of updates and pictures...we really appreciated that! Thank you!!

Everything went well with the transport of our cats. We were kept up to date and were sent pictures as well. Thank you!

Maple made it fine, and I would recommend you and use you again.

Your transporters were amazing. They sent pictures and updates every step of the way, including how the pets were doing with the transport and other animals. They worked with our schedule for drop-off and were just overall great! I can't say enough good things about them! I couldn't have picked a better group to trust with my pets.

Ruth and Trent drove him and they were wonderful! Trip was easy, seamless. And they were awesome with him. Thank you for not giving up on us and the scheduling despite the storms and time change!

My kitties here are safe and sound. Thank you for helping to coordinate their trip. I'd like to extend a compliment for Cameron's services. He was very communicative and offered great tips about how to give the kitties their meds. They were very thirsty when they arrived, but it may have been that they weren't comfortable drinking in the van (or eating much). Anyway overall, I am very satisfied with them making good time despite the weather and they seem to be doing well and settling in. Thanks again!

Andrea and her husband were great! I would never have gotten the puppies home without them. They worked with me and were very understanding. I can't say enough good things about them. Thank you. I will call you when I need help with the puppies again for a long trip.

My two sweet kittens have arrived safe and sound, and I cannot thank you enough for your service! I truly appreciate what you all do, and I am so grateful for your help in getting them moved. Thank you again for what you do!

I was very satisfied. The drivers were great individuals. I appreciate you and them making this less painful and easier than I would have imagined.

Could not have transported my dog without your help! Very happy with your service.

Duke arrived in Montana safe and sound a few hours a go. Shaun and his people took wonderful care of us. I am so thankful for all their hard work and dedication, it took so much stress out of our lives with this move. I also want to thank you for getting it all set up.

I just wanted to reach out and thank you for all your help with Koko's travel. She arrived last night safely and we've been playing since! She's finally sleeping after her long week of travel and play time. Thank you so much!

Everything went very well! I really like the service you provided. I also introduced your relocation service to my friend based on my good experiences. Thank you again for helping me.

Pet Travel Transport assisted me in getting a Brittany from Georgia delivered to me in Arizona. Susan was excellent to work with, always quick to respond to my inquiries. They did everything they promised for a very reasonable price. I will not hesitate to use them again. I strongly recommend them to anyone needing a pet transported.

Sue was fantastic to work with to get our pup to us on short notice and at a fair price. We really appreciate it. I highly recommend Pet Travel Transport.

Our transporter was great!!! We loved her! She took great care of our puppy, sent photos and was super nice. Thank you.
