Interstate Pet Transport Options

Please note that due to Covid-19 restricting many air services, for both people and pet transport, we currently have significant additional demand for our services. Generally  we are devoting the majority of our resources to the Express routes outlined below to assist as many clients as is reasonably possible and our Premium and Priority services are more limited. These more specialised services will recommence gradually as the demand subsides and we will return to our normal scheduling.

Dogmovers are a small family business based in South East QLD. We have several different levels of Interstate Pet Transport services running regularly throughout the Eastern States of Australia from Adelaide to Cairns. Our most common routes are covered weekly as part of our  Express services with trips between the major cities generally being overnight services. More specialised or individually customised services run less regularly on demand. See below for details regarding each service.

Express

These are typically regular Weekly or Fortnightly scheduled runs with set timetables similar to a bus service. These are our most economical services, covering all the main towns and cities on the primary routes up & down the East Coast. Prices are based having clients meet us at central points in most towns and the cost of each trip is spread between many customers to keep the cost down. The prices are based on a set regional pricing structure with discounts available to regular clients, breeders and Rescue Organisations. Your pets will be personally looked after by our friendly, professional drivers who will be with your pets the whole way, including overnight as they sleep in their vans. Schedules allow for regular comfort stops, good quality food is provided and your pets will have water available at all times. Our vehicles and Floats are a range of Air Conditioned Vans and Buses plus professionally designed Pet Transport floats to ensure your pets comfort. These services cater for all pets including small puppies and kittens, cats, poultry and other small animals right through to large dogs with a limited number of spaces for Extra Large dogs. You can view upcoming service dates on our Interstate run calendar.

Premium

These are more Specialty services designed to cater for Extra Large Breed Dogs, BOAS Affected Brachycephalic animals, Pets with special needs or simply for clients who would prefer a greater degree of attention or feedback during the trip. The Premium Services can also cater to more remote locations not catered to by our Express services. This is a full Door to Door service, more loosely scheduled but with greater flexibility. We typically utilise fully Air Conditioned Vehicles only with much smaller numbers of animals on board, typically 3 or 4 with a usual Maximum of 6, to ensure our drivers can spend additional social or care time with each pet. The cost of each trip may be spread between several customers and the prices are calculated using a per km charge which increases for pets travelling to more remote areas. Common regions are likely to be serviced Fortnightly with more remote regions being roughly monthly. These trips are scheduled based on demand and variations may be made as Bookings are confirmed to give booked clients peace of mind regarding dates. You can view upcoming suggested service dates on our Interstate run calendar however due to the nature of these trips changes will be made as bookings are confirmed.

Priority

The Priority Service is a fully Individualized trip typically catering specifically to your own Pet Families needs whether you have 1 animal or 30. We can fully customise a trip to suit your own needs and time frame. This service can cater to extreme or special needs, specific times and dates and can travel everywhere utilising any combination from our fleet of SUV’s, Vans, Floats and Pet Transport Buses. Whilst this is the highest cost option it is also the most flexible and can actually work out very economically if you have a large number of pets. The cost of each trip is calculated using a daily rate for the complete round trip.
