From or blog – Pets are part of the family, don’t leave them behind.
The pet industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. However, pet owners across the globe would wince at the thought of their beloved animals as being part of an ‘industry’. These figures cannot be ignored though, and with the global population becoming more and more transient every day, the pet relocation industry too is growing. As professionals around the world get stationed to new job postings overseas it is not just their core family unit they relocate, it’s becoming more and more common for them to take their cat or dog too!
The stress of moving!
Relocation on the whole is a stressful process and this grows even more stressful when a family is involved. Throw in a cat or dog into the mix and the whole process can be overwhelming especially when you have to take into account vaccinations, regulations and correct documentation that changes with each country. This is why it is essential to choose a reputable and knowledgeable pet relocation expert. A solid pet relocation service provider will be able to ease the travelling pressure of their clients by managing the pet import/export requirements such as flight booking, veterinary documentation, flight kennel requirements, quarantine regulations, boarding or quarantine and doorstep delivery.
Make the right choice!
With such a precious cargo it is imperative to choose the right company to help with your move. The pet industry is immense and has shown a very steady increase each year since the 1990’s. Pet relocation is a small and specialist service but is quickly emerging as a solid market. That is why our team at Global Exclusive Movers’ Network (GEM) see the potential in this area of moving. On our website there is a handy search section where you can select Pet Relocation and see which of our movers handle this specialist field. As our group expands more and more locations will be filled and the number of GEM Movers’ who handle pet relocations will grow.
Branching out as a mover!
As a mover, if you do not yet handle pet relocations maybe it is time to look into this area. With the pet industry growing each year maybe it is time to extend your services to cover this increasing potion of the moving market! I was recently reading an article about extra services movers should consider adding to their portfolio and pet relocations was top of the list. As an ever evolving industry it is essential to keep our eyes open to new opportunities and to seize the moment to expand our services to attract new business.
