1. Cat Transport Services
It’s not often that you need to get your cat transported to or from a location but cannot do it yourself; this is where cat transportation services are very useful. However, finding the best cat transport service is not always straightforward, with a lot of time needing to be spent researching services and requesting quotes individually.
Thankfully, Shiply is here to help. There are numerous cat transporters on our platform who are ready to bid on your job, often at up to 75% less than typical rates.
2. How Much Does Cat Transport Cost?
Whilst there are numerous factors involved in pricing when transporting your feline friend, the average short distance journey can cost you between $100 and $300 with longer journeys ranging from $300 to $600.
Distance will always be an important factor in the quotes you receive for your cat transport request, with international transport raising the price significantly. Some other factors which may come into play with pricing are:
Timings - If you need your cat somewhere within a strict timeframe then this is likely to cost you more as it may require a vehicle just for your cat, as opposed to you being able to wait until one becomes available driving a similar route.
Location Of Pickup And Delivery - If your cat is located somewhere remote then the extra miles driven for the pick up may incur extra costs. More urban areas are more likely to be closer to the cat transport service and may be cheaper.
Time Of Year - Unfortunately transporting your cat in Winter may be more expensive. This is because certain routes can be closed off or have stricter speed limits due to ice, snow, or wind.
3. How Can Shiply Help Find Cat Transport Services?
The safety and wellbeing of your beloved pet are obviously of the highest importance. Normally you may find yourself trawling through pages of Google searches or phonebooks trying to find the best cat transportation service for you, but Shiply can help to simplify this process.
All you need to do is submit a few pieces of information about your cat such as where it is located, where it needs to go, and when. Within just a few minutes you will begin to receive quotes from rated cat transport services that are personalized just for you. You have the ability to view ratings and feedback for any company that sends you a quote, and you can also send them a message should you have any special requests or questions.
Not only does Shiply give you one place to compare all your options, but quotes can also be up to 75% less than usual. This is because drivers on our platform are generally looking for extra work on routes they are already taking. This also means that using Shiply is great for the environment as it means there are fewer unnecessary vehicles on the roads.
4. Preparing For Your Cat To Be Transported
If you have settled on a cat transport service to carry out your job then the next thing you need to do is prepare for your cat to be picked up:
Documents - If your cat is going abroad or changing owners then there may be some documents required. We strongly suggest getting these in order before pick up as not having them may significantly delay your cat transportation.
Wash - It’s always a good idea to wash your cat before they are picked up, just to ensure they are feeling comfortable (and the driver won’t mind either).
Suitable Carrier - Ensure that you have a good crate/cage for your cat that allows them enough room to both comfortably lie down and move a little bit.
Food, Water, And Toys - Make sure you pack enough food, water, and toys (if your cat likes them). This will ensure that no extra stops are needed and that the driver has everything he needs to look after your cat on their journey.
5. What To Do After Delivery
If your cat has safely been transported to their destination then all you really need to do is check that they are safe and healthy. We do ask that you remember to leave feedback and a review for the cat transport service you used so that Shiply users in the future can know what to expect when they book them.

"Communication was great from the time I accepted the quote until the car was dropped off. In terms of the timeline, I was given a potential range for both how soon the car would be picked up and how many days it would be in transport."
"Everything was perfect! Fast, easy and hassle-free process! I definitely recommend and would use them again in the future. Thank you so much!"

"I’ve used Shiply twice now and have been really pleased with the result. It’s quick and easy to use. For both occasions the quotes were very competitive and the quality of the job was excellent. I highly recommend it."
