What is the guarantee from Island Pet Movers that my pet will be available for the 5-day or less program?
Island Pet Movers stands behind our promise to ensure your pet meets all requirements prior to their arrival in Hawaii. If your pet is held in quarantine due to insufficient paperwork and procedures, we will pay the daily quarantine rate until your pet is released. Pets held due to parasites and poor health are not the responsibility of Island Pet Movers and are not included in this guarantee.

I am moving to Hawaii sooner than 30 days, what happens now?
If you are moving to Hawaii within the next 30 60 days and have not started the process to bring your pets, it may be wise to ask a friend or family member to keep your pet for you until the mandatory quarantine process has been completed. If this is not an option for you, you can bring your pet when you come, however your pet will be required to stay in the quarantine center to complete their quarantine. These fees add up very quickly, which is why it is suggested that you find someone to keep your pet for you during this time.

How much does it cost to prepare my pet for quarantine?
“The cost of the rabies test and associated visits to your local veterinarian will vary. On average the blood test will cost about $200.00 – $400.00. Your pet will also need a health certificate prior to their flight, again an estimate of $75.00 -$150.00. The fee for the state of Hawaii is $165.00 per pet. If your pet is required to remain in quarantine once on island, quarantine fees can add up very quickly, which is why Island Pet Movers works with you to ensure this is avoided at all costs.
Please be sure to contact your local veterinarian to confirm their fees – we suggest to call around to a few vets as the price difference can be substantial.
