SHIPPING & DELIVERY
Your parrot departs from the airport closest to us on American, United or 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/airbill 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. parrots 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 parrots and adults. In my experience and opinion, my parrots are very comfortable and the new owners tell me that their new parrot has arrived happy and not at all stressed.
We ship our parrots using airlines because it is the fastest & safest way to transport our parrots from our place to yours especially if you live far away or in another state. Our parrots 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 difference 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 parrot 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 provide all the moisture the parrot need during delivery.
One reason we do this is in case, in the unlikely event the parrot 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 safe & healthy arrival of your parrot. We WILL NOT SHIP if we feel that weather conditions are hazardous for the parrot. Your parrot 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.
We can also deliver your new parrot DIRECTLY into your arms!! We have reliable Airline Nanny’s that will fly with your parrot right to you. This is the safest, most reliable, and the least stressful way for your new parrot to be delivered to you. A parrot Nanny takes the parrot on bored with them and they can give them the attention they need. We want the best possible care for your parrot!
