Ian and Nicola transported my little dog Millie from the Costa Blanca to the Midlands in the UK. Millie arrived incredibly quickly, with Ian and Nicola making special efforts to complete the journey as quickly as possible due to the higher than average heat in Spain at the time. Thank you both, hope you are able to enjoy a rest now.

I adopted a rescue dog who travelled from Spain to the UK with Nichola and Ian aboard their swanky pet bus. When my girl arrived she was happy and snuggling away with Ian and Nichola. After the trip, they checked in a few times just to make sure she was fine. What more could you want for your dog on a big long road trip? They truly loved and cared for our new girl from the heart and made her transition seamless. Thanks, you guys are the best!

A huge thank you to Nicola and Ian for taking such good care of Bertie and Pippa on their Journey to the UK and for looking after them for a week at their home. My Pippa is such a nervous sweetie but she arrived happy and healthy. You are the best. Anyone looking to use your services can be sure their special fur babies will be save and well looked after. A great service. Love to you both xxxxx

Ian and Nichola are the most genuine and lovely people and I wouldn't of had my dog transported with anyone else. It is very obvious they care so much about every animal that they have in the van and even though our wee Harry was brought from La Marina all the way to Glasgow he was as happy as could be! Excellent service and if we needed to, we would definitely use them again! Thank you! X

Nicola and Ian thank you so much for bringing my baby safe and sound. My Abby was a stray dog and therefore very shy and nervous. The whole family was very concerned with such a long travel time and how she was going to deal being with strangers but Nicola somehow felt Abby's needs and this meant she travelled most of the time in the front seat. Abby is now at home and she fitted right in. It feels as if she has been always part of the family. I can't thank Nicola and Ian enough. I recommend you 110% !!!!!

A big thank you to Nicola and Ian for delivering Blues safely to us. They have not had such a good journey this time. The train carriage broke down in the tunnel delaying them with their precious cargo. Thanks again for your care and hope your onward journey delivering the rest of the cats and dogs was straightforward. Would use Paws Transport again as you could see their dedication and love of animals and determination to get them to their owners as soon as they could. Thanks again.

Fantastic efficient service! my young dog Moko was transported from Spain to the Uk by Ian and Nicola he arrived safe, well and very happy so many thanks to you both great job and if I ever return to Spain I will defiantly contact you.

Jane AlandApril 12, 2017

Brilliant service. Dotty arrived in good time and was well looked after.

Rachele Jane HendersonSeptember 15, 2017

We used paws transport for our dog buddy from Bristol to benidorm we couldn't be more pleased with the service from Ian and Nichola the care and attention they show is second to none and buddy arrived safe and sound if a little tired thanks for everything.

Ian and Nicola were great and very kind! My little Nora arrived to me in perfect condition and very happy! Highly recommend! : Thank you very much to you both!

My Frankie was delivered to my door in the UK a few days after leaving Alicante, she was in great spirits when I got her back, Nicola and Ian had an epic journey bringing her, snow blizzards in Spain the works but they battled through and got her here a little later than expected . Would highly recommend this service and it is exceptional value for money compared to some of the other ridiculous quotes we got!! Thanks again Paws Transport, great job.

Dee CaseyMarch 7, 2016

Thank you Nicola and Ian for bringing Milo too us. He can be a little nervous around men but he seemed to love Ian and Nicola. Would recommend Paws Transport to everyone. They really put your mind at rest. Thank you again especially from Milo.

Bev RoddisSeptember 18, 2016

I have just received my Alsation dog from the UK using Paws Transport. Ian and Nicola are so professional in the way they go about transporting pets and care for each animal as if it was their own! They looked after Lola that much she even jumped back into their van once I had said hello to her ! This is the ONLY way pets should be transported to and from the UK.

Robert BlackJuly 24, 2016

Great service, looked after our Bentley wonderfully transporting him from Birmingham to La Cala. Would definitely recommend this service.
