We do offer shipping now! At this time, we only ship within in the United States. Ideally the rats are picked up from me, but I understand that's not always possible and this is a good option. It is less stressful then driving on long trips.
Shipping will be offered through United PetSafe ( 1(800) 575-3335) Please check:United PetSafe® drop-off and pickup locations for U.S. airports
I wont ship during super hot times (or under 50 degrees in cooler whether) Rats can overheat easily. Please make sure will be at airport to pick up as soon as they land.
I will be shipping from St. Louis Airport.
As of now, the base price for just shipping rats is about $100. The price of a carrier plus gas/time will be added in as well. Over all, it should be less then $200 Plus the price of the rats themselves.
I use Taconic Transit Cages (TTCTM ) They about $38, but they are yours to keep! .
You will need:
SHIPPER'S: name, address and phone number,
RECEIVER'S: name, address, and phone number.
I will give you the crate measurements and weight. The weight will be under 9 pounds.Taxes and mileage fee are added to the shipping total. You may ask for an estimate at the time of booking.
Make sure to remind them you are shipping RODENTS under the code 1004. Double check that your reservation was correct by going to www.unitedcargo.com and typing the “air bill #” you were given at the time of reservation. Save the air bill number, you will need it when you pick up and you will also need 2 forms of ID (with name matching the one provided during reservation),
Payment is needed upfront. I prefer by paypal. estimated quote is just that. An estimation – be prepared to cover the difference. If you over payed, I will send you back the difference.
