Many petshippers offer:  Gold Standard; White Glove; VIP; World Class; etc etc  This is Total BALONEY!!!  This is so they can Over charge you!  Check out their SUPER high prices and refusal to itemize!  Try reaching them AFTER their Banker Hours of operation...  We will make LIFE during Pet Relocation SO much easier for you!

We fully ITEMIZE  ALL charges before you sign up with us!  DO  THEY?

LATE  BULLETIN.... Pender Air is threatening to SUE  Action Pet Express because we Blew the Whistle on their possible shady practices!  more to follow!We also provide Door to Door, over the road (ground) Transport of Dogs and Cats thruout following States:  Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, D.C., Pennsylvania, North Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Kentucky and maybe beyond...

Why do pet owners continue to spend $2000 to $5000 MORE than necessary for Pet Relocation?

Pet  Relocation in Austin, TX  is Perpetuating the IPATA  BIG LIE that Cargo moves are MUCH better than Excess Baggage!  YES, for their Greedy Pocket!!   see more... p. 19

ALWAYS insist on a total and complete itemization of ALL charges.  You have an ethical right to know what you are buying.  And, what you are paying for each item..  Don't let these sneaky IPATA shippers con you into hidden charges!  If they don't want to be honest with you, HANG UP! 

PENDER  AIR  in Chantilly, VA   refuses to Itemize!  They provide ONE price that covers EVERYTHING!  YOU have NO idea what you are paying for!  Hidden here is a possible charge for TSA Screening at their location..... This is absolute BALONEY!  This may be a gimmick to extract more money from you!  This may or may not be legal?  In any event it is misleading!  The airlines do their own security check, and this is ALL included in their charges.  Also their 'crate preparation' fee.  What are you paying for?  This is typical of MOST  IPATA  shippers.  

See how PET  TRAVEL  STORE  is Ripping you OFF   BIG TIME  with their Phoney Pet Passports, etc   ..page 20

MILITARY  PCS with PETS .... page.. 11

Use CAUTION if using: UShip; Citizens Pet Transport or Roadie for over the road door to door dog or cat delivery .... page .. 15  Your pet may NEVER show up!

Be VERY cautious using HAPPY TAILS in Tucson!! They are probably the MOST expensive IPATA 3rd party pet shipper.They have HUGE consultation fees just to talk with you.  You can do MUCH better, even if you don't use us..  Just call them, then contact other shippers.  ALSO consult with us!  It's FREE

These are the MOST notorious IPATA 3rd party pet shippers (Middlemen) who are RIPPING you off for THOUSANDS of DOLLARS every time you use them!  You NEVER should use these people!  We will gladly explain your Options FREE of charge

Air Animal, Tampa and Orlando; Pet Relocation, Austin, TX;  Happy Tails, Tucson; Pet Express, San Francisco, Dallas and LAX; VIP, Portland; Animal Land (petmovers), Atlanta; Jet-A-Pet, nationwide; Animals Away, nationwide; World Pet Travel, TX and Costa Rica; Airborne Animals, N.J.;Starwood Transport, Houston and Boston; Puppy Travel, SLC; All Pet Travel, Tucson;  Cosmopolitan Canine Carriers, CT (Not IPATA)   see more page 4

MOST above ALSO solicit transport of animals to the Experimental Labs           see more page 18

We are the MOST experienced (over 48 years in the industry; hands on pet travel thru out Europe with my own 2 dogs, this past March); and MUCH less costly, than ALL other pet shippers and movers!

You NEVER want to engage an IPATA pet shipper in USA to make travel arrangements for your Pet(s) from a Foreign Country to USA. They MUST contact the same agents as you can, yourself, then they add fees of $2000 and often MORE.

DELTA airline, in Cahoots with IPATA, is REALLY ripping you off! Read our first paragraph on Page 3

We are your very favorable ALTERNATIVE to PCSPETS in Raleigh, NC! Be sure to check out their VERY BAD reviews before spending money on them!

CAUTION RED FLAG Starwood Animal Transport; Pet Movers.com; and Happy Tails are ALL VERY expensive 3rd party pet shippers who imply they have offices in Washington, DC area. They DON'T. Expect outragious prices if using them.

You can trust in Action Pet Express for providing professional and safe pet transportation. We have 47 years of experience in the business of making sure your pet family members (cat, dog,etc) travel in comfort and arrive safely. I, Jerry Mishler, Owner & U.S. Army Veteran, guarantee you will have great peace of mind after speaking with me. We cater to dogs, cats, birds and other beloved pets. I have experience with worldwide travel with my own dogs.

Why use someone who NEVER sees your pets, charges you several thousands of dollars just to make a couple phone calls and/or send a couple emails? I will help you for FREE! Check our Credentials...


We are often asked why someone should use Action Pet Express rather than another pet shipper! Really, it boils down to COSTS! Everyone provides pretty much the same services, etc! IPATA 3rd party pet shippers are just so much MORE expensive! We also ITEMIZE ALL of our services and costs. Most IPATA shippers REFUSE to as they really do NOT want you to know what you are actually paying! We ask ONE simple thing of YOU! Just compare OUR Prices and Services with THEIRS!

Please be advised of expensive IPATA 3rd Party Pet Shippers WHO ALSO solicit live animal transport to EXPERIMENTAL LABORATORIES see page 18

You do NOT need to use an expensive IPATA Pet Shipper; nor IPATA Veterinarian; nor IPATA Kennel! MOST airlines do NOT require IPATA Pet Shippers. PLEASE check with us! You may just SAVE Thousands of Dollars.

Saving Money Planning Your Next Pet Travel

Do NOT use a pet shipper in USA to arrange shipment FROM a foreign country TO USA. Will cost you at least $3000 to $5000 MORE than necessary! Would you NOT want to save hundreds, even thousands, of DOLLARS? Avoid IPATA 3rd party shippers!! Read on !!
Happy Tails of Tucson, AZ says they have fair prices. Do NOT believe! They are amongst the worst Rip Offs in the industry! Just look at their Consultation Fees.. OUTRAGEOUS! You do NOT need to pay these. You can do MUCH better, even if you do not call us!

Most Pets being shipped TO; FROM; or TRANSIT THRU: Greater WASHINGTON, D.C. by IPATA shippers are handled by the VERY Expensive CAPITAL Pet Movers!! They are the IPATA agent most often used here! You do NOT need to use this VERY expensive service. We can SAVE you couple thousand dollars at least in most cases!! At least get our quote!! Our charge for Customs Clearance is $100.. What are they quoting you? Be sure to get itemized statement of ALL charges!
