Transportation Safety for Pets

Hi, my name is Julie, and here by my side is my faithful companion Frieda, my therapy dog. I love to travel and have spent a lot of time travelling, but unfortunately, a few years ago, my anxiety increased in a way that made it hard to travel. As a result, I got a therapy dog. Frieda has been a literal lifesaver for me, but I have had to learn how to travel with her. In particular, I have had to learn how to help her have a safe experience on different modes of transportation. This blog is devoted to that concept. Whether you are travelling with a working companion or a pet in a pet carrier, this blog has tips on making that experience safe.

Getting the Best Transport Charters

by Noelle Frazier

Some social events require elaborate planning. This is especially true if those events require special transport arrangements to be made. These include weddings, school trips, and corporate trips. It is a good idea to outsource your transport needs to experts. Getting the right transport services can make such endeavors go flawlessly. To get the best transport it is important to look at your needs. The pointers to guide you include;

  • The amount of money allocated to cater for the transportation. This is the first factor to consider because all your choices are limited to the scope of your budget.
  • How much time will be spent in transit? For longer trips, it is important to choose a more comfortable means of transport. A vintage old school car or horse-drawn carriage might do for a mile but for a hundred miles you might want to choose a cool limousine or coach.
  • What kind of look do you want? The theme chosen will affect the choice of car from custom wedding cars to horse-drawn carriages.
  • How many people are going to be transported? If the number can fit into a coach, it might make sense to use a single coach instead of many smaller cars.

These questions will help you choose the right transportation service. There are many packages that you can choose from, from limousines, SUVs, yachts, choppers and buses depending on the specific event.

For a normal school trip, you might hire a coach. Weddings use more flamboyant means of transportation because they are special events and require special attention.

Transport charter services come in different packages and afford different levels of comfort. When vetting the companies that provide transport charters you need to take a look at the following credentials;

  • Have they been accredited in relation to compliance with industry safety standards, this will tell if they have competent staff and well-maintained vehicles.
  • Can you reach them easily? They must be able to pick calls promptly and listen to your needs, transportation can be a nervy affair if communication breaks down.
  • Do they have the vehicles you need? Some companies may specialize in providing coaches for hire, others will have an array of options from carriages to choppers, get one which can provide all your transport needs at once.

Finally have a discussion with the company that you have chosen. Let them know  your specific needs and negotiate for the best prices you can get. Give them a picture of what you have in mind clearly so that the transportation goes seamlessly.
