MBB does offer to meet with ground animal transports as well as in cabin flights accompanied by a flight nanny. Both options will need to be USDA certified and approved by MBB prior to reserving a bunny/chinchilla. Please contact us before booking a transportation service. All transport options must be approved by Maci's Bunny Boutique prior to reserving your bunny/chinchilla from us. Please let us know if you have any questions regarding these services.
MBB's health guarantee will apply to our animals on transport. Our 7 day health guarantee will apply once your baby is picked up from the buyer. If your baby falls ill or passes away during transport, we are happy to offer a replacement. We are not obligated to offer refunds due to this cause and are only able to replace ONE bunny or chinchilla. Your baby will be fully inspected and we will send you photos/videos of them prior to drop off. You, the buyer, are responsible for finding and contacting the transport/shipping service. The bunny/chin must be paid in full before we drop them off with the third party. You, the buyer, are responsible for filling required forms and paying the transport fees. You, the buyer, must send us confirmation that you are booked with an approved flight nanny or a ground transportation service route. Boarding fees will not apply within two weeks of the given weaning/go home date when holding a bunny/chin in order to meet a third party. Every additional day past the two week mark that your baby stays with us, a $5 per day boarding fee will be charged. No refunds are given after the bunny/chin leaves our care.
Airline In Cabin Shipping:
MBB does offer in cabin shipping with a USDA certified flight nanny. Flight nannies will fly from airport to airport to pickup and drop-off small animals to safely transport them to their new families.
The buyer is responsible for booking with the flight nanny to meet us at the San Antonio International airport for drop-off. We are only allowing domestic shipping within the U.S. The buyer is responsible for an additional $275 fee to cover the cost of an airline approved crate, absorbent padding & blanket, food & water dishes, 3 hour round trip delivery to the San Antonio airport, as well as necessary documentation needed per airports requirements. If adopting more than one bunny/chin from the same litter, they are able to fly together in the same crate. In cabin shipping can typically cost between $600-$2,000 depending on the destination and the flight nanny you work with.
Below are a couple flight nanny recommendations. If you have another flight nanny service that you would rather use, that is not listed below, please contact us directly.
Ground pet transports are a common service people use to transport their animals across the country. There is many small transportation businesses owned by certified and trusted people from all over. They pick up the baby from the sellers location and deliver to the buyers location. They always meet in a public area where everyone has access to. You can find all the transport services on Facebook. Most post new runs every month. So if one doesn't work out, maybe the next will. Most transports services require you to fill out a form of general information. Below we have listed some of our information to use on that form. A few transports require a certificate of veterinary inspection. This will be an additional cost to the rabbit. Health certificates are only valid for 30 days.
