The air freight team helped with the relocation of 13 cats, which could have been stressful, but they managed to sort everything in an efficient and stress-free manner.

We needed a customs clearance agent/freight forwarder at short notice as we moved our 2 cats from California to Gozo. Thomas Smith Shipping were very responsive to the initial enquiry & the team leader helped quickly to arrange everything. The service was super friendly & efficient. It made a real difference to us that the team cared about the animals' well-being. The team leader sent us photos on arrival and kept us in touch with the pet taxi service over to Gozo. This was the fourth time the cats had flown to a different country but by far the longest & most difficult so we were nervous. The team's professionalism & friendly approach put our mind at rest though. We couldn't have asked for more & would recommend Thomas Smith Shipping to anyone moving their pets internationally.

I am extremely satisfied with the service provided by Thomas Smith & recommend them as airfreight movers to expats who want to get their beloved pets to a new destination. Thomas Smith comes highly recommended from our pet relocators in Dubai. The team leader was from Day 1 very prompt to answer my many queries. Keeping in mind this was my first experience in relocating a pet, I needed a lot of guidance. Thomas Smith was with me all the way, providing me with information & guidelines regarding my options & the documents needed to import our dog Luna to Malta. We are very grateful to Thomas Smith who made this difficult relocation to our country, in these dire Covid-times, so seamless & less stressful.
