PetBacker realized that most pet owners are busy and may not be able to get their pets in for their important vet appointments, grooming or spa appointments. With PetBacker, pet owners can now hire a pet taxi from the PetBacker app or website.
Some of our pet taxi services also provide pet ambulance and animal boarding. It is normally offered by our pet sitter, and pet boarder. Their profile will normally state how much they charge, with some pet taxis charging by the distance and time, while others may offer a flat rate for various predefined trips. A pet taxi rate is normally about 50%-100% higher than a regular human taxi, Uber, or Grab as most of the pet taxi will have a kennel secured in their vehicle with a harness and strapped into the seat belt to ensure the trip is safe and secure.
Pet owners can also request the taxi to either drop the pets off and return them when their appointment is finished, or have the taxi to wait with the pets during the appointment. The rate would be higher if pet owners requests that the taxi to wait for their pets during the appointment.
