Because Asia is one of our most popular pet transport destinations, we have a dedicated multi-lingual Asian Travel Consultant whom we affectionately call Mr. Asia. Mr. Asia's real name is Michael Yong and he fluently speaks, Mandarin, Cantonese, Taiwanese, Malay, and can converse confidently in most other Asian languages within the ASEAN region. This means he easily communicate with Asian airlines, Asian customs, Asian vets and Asian government officials throughout Asia on your behalf. Nothing gets lost in translation! Which makes booking your pet's travel to Asia a breeze.
One of our most senior consultants, another advantage of working with Mr Asia to get your precious pets from New Zealand to Asia, is his long standing relationships with most of the Asian airlines. He helped establish many of the viable routes available to pets travelling the NZ to Asia routes which helped open up the region to pet transporters from down under. In a nut shell, you get mates rates and discounts that other international pet couriers can not provide.
The biggest and best advantage in using Mr. Asia is Michael's long-standing friendships with Asian customs brokers, airport officials, landing agents and government vets. His ability to ensure your pets wellbeing and safety in transit is built on years and years of experience and trust building on the ground. You can't replicate his in-depth understanding of local processes or first name knowledge of all the head honchos throughout the Asian Pacific and UAE region. Both in NZ and Asia, Michael is regarded as the go-to-guy for all things pet transport related.
Whether you move your dog to Japan, cat to Taipei, kittens to Vietnam, puppies to Vietnam, litter to Thailand, farm dogs to Malaysia or show cats to China, there really is only one man for the job. Michael is supported by our team of logistics, admin, customs brokers and landing agents both here in New Zealand and on the ground in Asia to make sure your pet has happy and safe transport experience. If you are from Asia and returning home with your pet, you can discuss your need in your native tongue - just remember to ask for Mr. Yong! He is waiting for your call on 09 256 0999
It's not the easiest job, international pet transport. Many of our pet travel consultants are up before sunrise moving early shipments of pets overseas. Once in the office, there are waiting enquiries and travel crate fittings. Pet Transporters need respond to crate training questions before taking more cats and dogs off to pre-flight MPI vet checks. In the midst of all the activity at Cargo Central in Auckland Airport, we have to deal with extreme cuteness levels of our clients pets! All our pet travel clients are invited to take a stroll around our office at Pet Transport and enjoy a little chill time before flying to their new home overseas. This time last month we were all besotted with the antics of two german shepherd puppies Zeus and Bolt. They took a midnight flight to meet their Dad at Miri in Malaysia.
It's always great for family pets to have a travel companion to share their journey. If you have puppies or kittens and you aren't sure when is the best time to fly, contact one of caring travel consultants. They can answer questions about your travel destination, any vaccines you might need and which airline is best for your pet transport consignment. Don't hesitate to contact a consultant now!
