We manufacture our very own pet travel containers to order right on our premises.
All our pet travel containers are made to the International Air Transport Association (IATA) specifications and comply with the United Nations International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) and the SA Department of Agriculture Forestry and Fisheries regulations.
Custom-made on-site per order – per pet.
Strong, safe, and very comfortable. You can’t stand four adults on any of the plastic crates we’ve seen.
Comply with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) specifications.
Comply with the United Nations International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) and the SA Department of Agriculture Forestry and Fisheries regulations.
Last up to 10 years when kept indoors. This is an email from one of our many, many happy clients, “We still have our two containers in our garage. Two years since our babies arrived to us. Thank you Keringa!”
And they have easy-to-attach wheels on them so you can transport your fur babies from the airport to their new home without damaging your back. We don’t cut corners. Ever.
A – Length of the pet from the tip of the nose to the root of the tail.
B – Height from the ground to the top of the leg or elbow joint.
C – Width across the right and left shoulder.
D – Height of the pet in a natural standing position from the ground to the top of the head or the tip of the ear in erect ear breeds. (For a cat you might find it easier to measure height while the cat is sitting with its head erect.)
Minimum Container Dimensions are:
Length = A+1/2 of B
Width = C x 2 (1 pet) or C x 3 (2 pets)
Height = D
The size of the container (crate, kennel, carrier) must be such that it will allow the pet to stand in a natural position, turn around easily, and lie down naturally at all times. The images above give measuring directions and a guideline for calculating the correct size airline shipping container for your pet/s. They relate to a pet standing in a natural position.
