PET TAXIS pricing is generally calculated based on the time it will take to do the individual job, including return to base. Our local prices will usually cover one or two animals to the same destination, further animals, or additional services may incur additional charges based upon any additional time the service is expected to take including loading and unloading.
When you contact us for a price, we will need to know the address for pick up and collection, the desired date and time and details regarding the animals or any special needs they may have. Our quote will include GST, a reasonable amount of time for collecting and delivering your pets and any cages or crates we would provide for the move.
If we are required to wait to collect the pets again, for instance during a vet appointment, or they are not ready to collect when we arrive at the appointed time or for any other reason we do charge a stand by rate as detailed below.
PET TAXIS are available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week however we do charge more for jobs done outside normal business hours, on weekends and public holidays or where we do not have at least 24 hours notice of the job.
Normal rates will apply for jobs starting within our standard transport hours and being completed within 2 hours of these times. Jobs starting outside these times or not expected to be completed within 2 hours of these times will incur a surcharge as detailed below.
To avoid disappointment we suggest you book your pet transport early as we can be booked out on some days.
