Congratulations on your exciting move with all of your pets! How you transport them all depends on your method of moving. Are you driving to your new home? Are you taking a plane or train?

Before you determine the method of transportation, you should check with the Government Guidelines whether certain pets are permitted entry into Utah. Then decide how you will transport your pets. If you are driving, you will need a large van or car to comfortably house all of those pets. All of those pets will require a pet carrier so that they can comfortably enjoy the ride. You should also plan to bring sufficient food and take frequent breaks - especially for your dogs - who will want to run around and play. Since this will be a long drive, you should also consider reserving a pet friendly motel/hotel.

If you are flying, you will have to ask the airline carrier whether they can transport a lizard and a tortoise. Dogs and cats are generally fine, but again, they will need a comfortable carrier. You should also consider reserving a space for your pets at least three to four months prior since many flights have limits on how many pets they are permitted to carry.

Good luck with your move,
