Shipping and Delivery
Your parrot departs from the airport closest to us on Continental Airline’s Pet-Safe, to your nearest airport. He/she travels in a climate-controlled cabin area for pets. He/she travels in a climate-controlled cabin area for pets, in an airline-approved carrier. Ahead of time, you will have a flight #, arrival time, and a reference # that identifies your Parrot. We make all the arrangements for you, and you pick your Parrot up at the airport, just like picking up a person & you will need a reference/air bill number. Shipping is totally safe & stress-free on the Parrot. You will receive Parrot within 5-6 hours same day after shipping depending on your location. Parrot on planes are as safe as you or I flying. I have shipped dogs for more than 14 years now. I always try to ship direct non-stop when flying Parrot and adults. In my experience and opinion, my Parrot are very comfortable and the new owners tell me that their new Parrot has arrived happy and not at all stressed.
We ship our Parrot using airlines because it is the fastest & safest way to transport our Parrot from our place to yours especially if you live far away or in another state. Our parrot are shipped in an airline-approved plastic pet kennel that we customize depending on the weight of the Parrot , the distance or duration of the journey. They ride in a special climate-controlled & pressurized compartment on the plane which is no different from the cabin. They are not in the same compartment as the passenger luggage.
Our shipping crates are clearly marked with colorful “LIVE ANIMALS” and “UP” stickers. We mark the crates clearly with the destination airport, the confirmation number, the phone & address of the customer. When we know that a Parrots is going to be shipped, we play with them in the crate prior to shipping so they are used to it. They have never shown fear of the crate. We put lots of food & plenty of water in the shipping crate. The water provides all the moisture the parrot need during delivery. One reason we do this is in case, in the unlikely event the parrots should get stuck at an airport overnight (because of connecting flight trouble), we don’t have to worry if they have enough to eat or drink. Although traveling is not that hard on them, we do not like to make them spend any more time than absolutely necessary in transit. For this reason, we also look for the shortest route & always schedule direct flights if possible.
We check weather conditions at the receiving end and only ship when we consider it safe to do so. We put our Parrots’ health above all other considerations and do not ship when we feel it could be dangerous to the Parrots’ well-being. We usually ship Monday – Sunday. We guarantee a safe & healthy arrival of your Parrots. We WILL NOT SHIP if we feel that weather conditions are hazardous for the Parrots. Your Parrots may take few days to adjust once they get to their new homes, sometimes it takes them a day or two to settle in, but by far, the vast majority of people tell us they just step right out of the shipping crate & act right at home.
