Did you know that Ausmove not only move your household goods and personal effects, but we also pride ourselves on taking care of the whole family, including your family pets. We’re sure you’re happy to know that we don’t actually do the physical moving of your pets, we partner with New Zealand’s leading pet relocation specialists, to ensure your four-legged family members receive a VIP (Very Important Pet) service.
What might surprise you is that moving your family cats and dogs from New Zealand to Australia is reasonably straightforward, compared to other countries. That’s because NZ is a rabies free, category one country. There is no quarantine period, and all pets can travel directly into many of Australia’s major airports, including Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Sydney, and the Gold Coast. After being cleared at the airport they can travel straight home or be further transported to their eventual destination. With good planning (and an early morning departure) it’s even possible to be on the same flight as your pet so you can all leave the airport together.

To get things underway all you need to do is advise us that you would like a quote for your pet(s) to move to Australia. We will take your basic details and connect you to our trusted service partner. They are considered the market leaders in international pet moving on both sides of the Tasman. The first step is for one of their international pet travel specialists to give you an in-depth consultation and provide expert advice on your options and what’s involved. As with all international travel, the detail is important, but don’t worry they are experts. The next step is for them to prepare a personalised quotation, that meets the needs of both you and your fur babies.
Once the plane has landed in Australia your pets will be the first off, even before the humans. They will be taken to a secure and comfortable waiting area. Each arrival airport procedure is slightly different, but once your destination is known, this will be outlined to you, as part of the consultation process.
