Professional and reliable pet taxi service. We can provide a long distance and local pet transport service throughout the UK.

Our Transportation Services

Maybe you don’t drive or your own car is off the road. Many taxi companies don’t allow pets so why not use our pet taxi services? Try a dedicated pet travel company with dedicated vehicles complete with Lintran safety cages for space and comfort. 

We can take your pet to the vets or groomers on your behalf so you don’t have to take time off work. 

Moving home and not sure how your pet(s) will get to their new home? Moving companies are great at getting your furniture and belongings to the new home but what about our furry friends? 

We can also assist if you need to collect a puppy or kitten from a breeder or if you need to rehome a pet due to change in personal circumstances. 

Whatever your pet transport needs, we can help.

Very quick to respond to any queries we had when planning his journey and delivered our little man in a very calm and comfortable state. Would highly recommend!"

"Gary recently brought our corgi puppy home for us from the breeder in Wales as we couldn't get do him during lockdown. Gary responded very quickly to my initial enquiry, and was flexible on dates to best suit us and the breeder. He was very helpful throughout, sharing information with us and using Google maps to share his live location so we could track progress when we wanted to. Fantastic service at a great price. Would definitely recommend and use his services again! Edit: I should add that puppy of course arrived safely, calm and happy despite a long journey!! Very pleased".
