They also have a specialised Mercedes Sprinter Van with independent environmental control systems fitted and built-in travel sections, which allows them to carry different species in separate compartments. They never mix prey animals with hunters.

Our Main Specialist Vehicle

In addition, their vehicles are TRACKED in the UK and in Europe so they know where they are at any given time, allowing them to keep you up-to-date.

Capacity for 28 passengers!

Pet Taxi UK has FULL TRADE Insurance that covers all transit animals in their care, and if an animal ever becomes ill in their care they will take it to a vet for treatment, and inform the owner every step of the way paid for by them.

Main Small Animal Compartment

In addition, they have FULL European Vehicle and Animal Recovery Service from RAC Business and all vehicles are Fully Comprehensive Insured for Hire & Reward (an insurance cover many couriers forget to provide and is a MUST HAVE insurance in this game!).

The new website and new retail pet supplies shop is launched Their email is now – The owner (Derek Foxcroft) also has a profile on Facebook (PetTaxiUK) and Twitter.


Their aim is to provide the best price at the earliest date possible that fits your needs. As they are very busy, it may be a few weeks before they can fit you in, but they are expanding staff numbers and vehicles to reduce waiting times.


As part of their expansion, they have also just opened their Head Office and Small Retail Store based in Middlesbrough.

Add water

Because they are Rabbit, Dog, Cat and Fish keepers they understand the importance of the trust their customers place when carrying pets. They have become known as a high-quality service provider because their communication is second to none, the service always delivers once booked, and they always arrive within the time slot and date agreed with all parties involved.

They are not everyone’s choice of courier, and in some circumstances, they choose not to work with some customers, but on the whole, their reputation speaks for itself as they are fair, polite, truthful and professional!

If you are new to the world of animal transport and you want it done right from the outset, or you currently use another service provider you are not happy with, please contact Pet Taxi UK for free quotes and advice based on your unique requirements. They always work to make it happen for you and your pets, and Animal Welfare is always their primary concern. They look forward to working with you in the near future.
