Meet Our Customer, Ron Baxter

 

Ron’s Story

Ron was trying to find a reliable pet shipper.  His son is in the US Army and currently stationed in Germany.  He needed to ship a 75 pound German Shepherd to his son in Germany from the United States.  Ron decided to gather information from a variety of local and national pet shippers to determine the best option to ship his dog safely and at a reasonable price.

Ron contacted 11 different businesses during his research and eventually found us at Action Pet Express.  After comparing us to the competitors, Ron selected us to ship his dog and he graciously shared all of the information he gathered during the process so we can share with you why you should choose Action Pet Express for your next pet relocation!

Why Ron Chose Action Pet Express

Our Competitors 

Out of the 11 pet shipping businesses Ron contacted, six weren’t even available to ship his son’s dog to Germany. Pet Relocator, Happy Trails Travel, Precious Pets Transport Service, PetsFly.com, Pet Pros Services, and the Luxe Pet couldn’t even provide Ron with a quote for service!

Out of the 5 pet shippers that Ron received a quote from, Action Pet Express was the cheapest by over $800!  Some of these IPATA shippers wanted to charge thousands more for the same service!!!  Our LOWER prices do NOT mean lesser services! 

Don’t be fooled, IPATA 3rd Party Pet Shippers are TOTALLY unnecessary and you do NOT need their unwelcome services!! They provide services you do NOT need or want and they hide this from you as they refuse to itemize their quotes and bills. You can, and should, deal directly with the pet shippers like Action Pet Express who will have hands on your pet move.

Unnecessary Documentation & Requirements

The cost to ship his dog wasn’t the only reason Ron chose Action Pet Express to ship his dog to Germany over our competitors.  Many of them required numerous other items that are not technically required by the USDA or TSA to ship an animal.  Action Pet Express takes the stress and headache out of shipping your pet by only requiring what is needed.  We aren’t going to charge you for unnecessary items or paperwork.

We required NO paperwork from Ron, all of the information we required was provided to us by Ron over the phone.  We only required THREE items to ship his dog: EU Certificate endorsed by USDA, APHIS 7001 Int. Health Certificate, and a copy of a Rabies Certificate. All of these items are required by regulation for international air transportation.

Our competitors?  Look at the the list of items required by these IPATA shippers!  Most of these items are not required and some would have incurred Ron additional expenses not to mention his time:

Annual vaccine records w/microchip number, picture of dog, in and out of crate, clear picture of animals face, picture of crate, copy of passport or state ID, Military ID or orders, Microchip # & Implant Date, and numerous other forms such as a Client & Pet Information Sheet, Contract Agreement, Credit Card Authorization Form, Origin & Destination Information Form, Terms & Conditions Form, Pet Information Form and more!

Don’t be fooled – these IPATA shippers are 3rd party MIDDLEMEN. They have you believe they are providing you great and needed services.  They are NOT.   The only service they provide is INFLATED costs to you. We will explain all of this to you during our FREE consultation.  We offer FREE itemized quotes after a quick and simple phone call!  No need to wait weeks for a quote!
