Costs of International Pet Relocation

Generally, the costs of shipping a pet range between $300 and $2,000.

Your pet will need a plane ticket as well -most small pets can come along with you in the cabin, while larger pets will have to travel in special cargo compartments. Along with this, extra costs can arise from:

  • Microchipping your pet;
  • Obtaining a pet passport;
  • Vaccinating your pet;
  • Purchasing an IATA (International Air Transport Association) approved crate.

Cost of International Car Shipping

On average, shipping a vehicle can cost between $1,000 and $5,000.

This price will depend on:

  • Type of the vehicle: The heavier and/or the bigger your vehicle is, the more expensive it will be to transport it.
  • Destination: If your moving destination is quite far away, the vehicle shipping costs will likely be higher.
  • Door-to-door vs. pick-up: Choosing to get your vehicle delivered to your door will result in a higher cost to transport it relative to picking it up at the port.
