Internet Puppy scams
We are aware that our logo and name (along with those of other companies) have been used in a puppy delivery scam. People are being asked for money for the transport of dogs as well as vaccination costs etc prior to the delivery of dogs they have been promised over the internet. How do you tell the real thing?
Local Transport Pricing
Local transport pricing is generally calculated based on the time it will take to do the individual job, including return to base. Our local prices will usually cover one or two animals to the same destination, further animals, or additional services may incur additional charges. The pricing is quite different to our interstate pricing due to the fact that each booking is usually handled individually rather than the cost being spread over multiple bookings as is the case with our interstate services.
You will need to contact us for individual prices or regular requirements however the following are common examples of our local prices.
Gold Coast to Gold Coast from $70
Gold Coast to/from Brisbane from $140
Gold Coast & Brisbane to Gatton or Lockyer Valley from $145
Gold Coast & Brisbane to/from Toowoomba from $220
Interstate Transport Pricing
Our interstate prices are based on a set price list which takes into account the number and size of animals and the distance they are to be moved. Each of our runs covers a number of days and on each run we will move numerous pets along with your own.
Generally you will be charged per animal but each additional animal will be charged at a lesser rate. Bookings for 5 or more animals, litters of pups or other unusual requests will be treated individually.
Our prices include GST, Dog or Cat food, regular comfort stops for your pets and pick up from and drop off to a central location in most towns. In larger cities we may have several meeting points.
Our prices do not include pick up or drop off to a residence. such services are possible in many instances at an additional cost however this is discouraged simply because it can add significantly to the hours each day that our drivers and all the pets in our care are on the road.
Our vans commonly cover 1000km or more per day and it is necessary for us to be moving multiple animals at a time to cover the cost of wages, fuel etc. In many ways we operate similarly to a long distance bus service.
Standard discounts apply for the transport of multiple animals to and
from the same locations or if a pet is booked on a return trip.
Additionally there are discounts in the event two or more pups from the
same litter will be sharing a cage. These
discounts will automatically be deducted from your quote at the time of

charges will apply for pick up or drop off at any location other than
our standard meeting points, requiring extra travel from our usual

rate of $90 per hour with a minimum charge of $30.00 for ¼ hour and are
calculated to cover the additional travel time as well as the expected
