  • A huge, HUGE thank you to you and Aeropets!! Thank you for making sure Kimi, Vettel and Mika arrived safe and sound in Amsterdam yesterday!! Thank you for being prompt since our first email communication until their arrival here, for your guidance, repeating yourself to us to make sure everyone and everything is aligned – dog-mommy, sisters, vets, lab, flights, cargo, water, and the list goes on. Thank you also with your guidance and support for Chantell and Bernize!! This would not have been possible without you!!

  • I want to thank you. After a long journey Johannesburg / Milan Pelè arrived and also because of you Paula and the Aeropets team. You have been kind and available at any time aware of how much value a dog has for the owner and of my anxiety. you love this job and I feel it. You solved the last minute problems and you did it by sending me peace of mind.
    You are the person I will contact again when I have to move Pelè.

  • I would like to thank you and your team at Aeropets for making the relocation process of my cat Lilly and dog Toby so simple, easy and effortless. After a lot of research and quotations, I’ve decided to use Aeropets (so glad I did) for taking care of the relocation of my pets from South Africa to New Zealand.

    I’ve received incredible service from Mikki and her team at Aeropets.  I received my quotes very quickly and the size of the transportation containers that Mikki recommended was spot on.  Aeropets always kept me up to date, every step of the way.

    Aeropets made this process simple and effortless and their fees were very reasonable. I would highly recommend Aeropets to anyone considering relocating their pets.

  • his is a HUGE thank you for all you did for Zola and Tex. They arrived happy and healthy yesterday evening after a flight change and a delay. We saw them being delivered in their crates and heard them barking all the way on the trailer. Tex was hoarse by the time we got home and still is. Zola is somewhat skinnier but that will soon be sorted. Tex still has a lot of meat on his bones.

    You were such a pleasure to deal with throughout this process. I think we have had about 38 emails go back and forth to each other and all the time you have been fantastic. You put me to ease every time and dealt with my countless questions. I cannot tell you how reassuring it is to deal with people that are not only good at what they do but who are also kind and compassionate.
    I can’t thank you enough.

  • positive review  I moved with my cats to Finland and the process of moving the cats seemed very daunting. Mikki from Aeropets assisted me throughout the entire process and made it extremely easy to understand what I had to do and when and my cats have safely joined me in Finland without any issues. Thank you very much!😀

    positive review  A huge thank you to Mikki! We finally have our pups in Australia! Can't thank you enough. Between Mikki and Paws resort the only stress i had was the fact that i wasn't with my pups for the 12 days! They took care of absolutely everything from vet work to flights and crates! Thank you!

    positive review  We used Aeropets to bring our little Wire haired Fox terrier over to Orlando Florida, USA and they were great! From the initial quote, which was the most competitive out of the list of companies I contacted to the last minute of the entire process. They communicated the entire time, explaining the process and guiding us what to do. Thank you Mikki and the rest of the team at Aeropets for keeping our fur baby safe and reuniting us with our last family member!

    positive review  We used Aeropets to transfer our fur baby over and they were amazing! Their price is great and their service even better!! Really recommend them to anyone. Also the Vet and the pet resort they use if you need that is just as awesome and very beautiful and pets are really looked after. My cat had her own little garden to play in and her own little room. 😀 thank you so much!!

    positive review  I returned to the U.K. from Johannesburg yesterday. I suffer with anxiety, but Paula and Aiden dealt with our journey with empathy and total professionalism. Paula guided me through everything, no question was too silly and she was so patient with us all. I highly recommend AeroPets! Don’t use anyone else!

  • positive review  Massive thank you to Paula and the team at Aeropets. She kept on top of everything, was always responsive and dealt with it all including last minute changes (caused by us such as fight changes!) and BoJangles made it safely to the UK in time for Christmas. The best possible Christmas present! x

    positive review  This is a very long and tricky journey- moving to another country, and with pets - even more so!!! Luckily we had a team of amazing people who helped us through this, Aeropets was one of the companies who had our backs!!! Our two dogs are our children, our lifelines, our small piece of SA we brought with us, now that they’re home- we are finally home as well. Thank you Mikki- for making this feeling, this reunion possible. We know that this is not an easy job and there are a lot of hoops you guys have to jump through- and on top of all this- you are working with our “children.” I am so glad, that I chose you as the transporting company. You are reliable, trustworthy and organised. Thanks you so much for making our family whole. We will recommend you to anyone!!! Thank you so much!!! ❤️❤️❤️

    positive review  A big thank you to MIKKI , our fur babies landed safe and sound at Heathrow, your service has been exceptional from start to finish. Your Attention to detail in the beginning with checking our documents and rectifying a problem , answering ALL my questions promptly and making sure the animal reception center received our paperwork before my pets landed - saved them and us a long stressful wait while they cleared.
