Moving Overseas? Lassie Can Go Too – Thanks to Launch of New Pet Relocation Service

John Mason International is announcing a brand new pet relocation service, as part of its comprehensive offering.

The international removals specialist has long been revered for its focus on looking after the entire family. And now that includes the fluffiest members too.

“As a family business we appreciate, more than anyone, that much-loved four-legged friends play a hugely important role in the lives of many of our customers,” said John Mason International’s Simon Hood.

“Our newly-launched Pet Relocation division is manned by experts with many years of experience under their belts. They are dedicated to ensuring treasured animals can move abroad and join their families, with the minimum of fuss or stress.”

With notice of between one and six weeks, John Mason International’s specialists will begin John Mason Pet Relocationmaking arrangements for a client’s pet travel plan.

We tend to collect pets a day or two before their journey is due to begin – and board them at facilities close to Heathrow, Gatwick, Glasgow or Manchester airports,” added Simon. “Our vet carries out an examination, before issuing an Export Health Certificate – which means they are fit to fly.

“Once this is complete, we take care of all the necessary Exports and Customs paperwork to make sure each pet is ready to go.”

John Mason International overseas its global network of partner agents, who offer a full door-to-door service, depending on the needs of each family.

“The Pet Relocation division liaises with our customers throughout and manages the entire process,” said Simon. “That can also mean talking to an animal’s existing vet, to establish any specific requirements for entering a destination country.

“We make all travel arrangements – including collection, boarding, flights, Customs and DEFRA export submissions – as well as dealing with import requirements for the far end of the journey.

“Everything is taken care of. We even make sure dogs in our care get to take a lovely long walk before they depart for the airport – so they’re pleasantly tired before boarding.”

John Mason International customers can also track the progress of their beloved pets as they travel to their new home, via special links provided by the Pet Relocation division.

“And people needn’t worry about what happens once their animals arrive,” said Simon. “Our trusted partner agents can handle everything – from Import Permits, Customs clearance and quarantine booking, to transfer if needed and delivering pets to their brand new home.

“We are also one of the only providers to offer Global Pet Register tags. So, every-thing is taken care of. All our customers need to think about are the exciting times ahead in their new home – for both them and their furry friends.”

John Mason Internationals new Pet Relocation division also handles pet imports into the UK. For more information about the new service and John Mason International, visit johnmasonpets.com
