Solo ground pet transportation is designed to meet the specific needs of your next family move or pet relocation. By focusing on one pet or one family at a time we can offer the best care and attention that your loved one deserves. We offer a direct route from pickup to delivery anywhere nationwide.

How much does private pet transportation cost?

We like to offer you a customized service plan based on your specific needs. Final pricing will depend on your location within the US, how soon you need a pickup, how many pets we are traveling with, and how quickly you want your pets to reach their destination. Here are average starting prices for a private trip.

500-1500 miles - $1.5/mile

1501-3000+ miles - $1.25/mile

Express trip $2/mile

Who will be driving my pets?

90% of the time myself, Amanda, and my husband, Alex, will be your pet's driver. However, sometimes we can match you with one of our trusted partners who is closer to your pickup city or has the availability that matches your needs. We know our drivers personally, have met them in person, and can confidently stand by the service they will offer to your family. We will always discuss these arrangements in advance. 

How far in advance should I book my trip?

We recommend booking 6-8 weeks in advance when possible. When selling a house or on military orders we understand your timeline is limited and you may not be able to book transport until a month in advance. We do our best to accommodate your move! Last minute transports (within a week of pickup) are possible at a premium. 

How long is the trip?

Most coast-to-coast trips can be completed in just five days. On average we drive about 650 miles per day and stay at pet-friendly hotels to rest. Express trips are also possible with two drivers and limited stops. Express delivery allows us to drive coast-to-coast in just three days.
