Don't Delay... Activate Your Reserve Birds Today!!
Just some of the many benefits we offer as part of our quarantine services
Our #1 primary goal and mission and purpose with exporting your birds is to:
REDUCE THE OVERALL STRESS ON THE BIRDS THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE COLLECTION/QUARANTINE & SHIPPING PROCESS.
As a valued client of ours, we will deliver our commitment to you based on the following Criteria:
Provide Exceptional Quality Service. Exceptional Service is at the core of everything we do, and we do not compete on price. This is a specialized service we provide our valued clients, and as such, should not be considered a commodity business.
We always fully comply with ALL USDA/APHIS regulations and Foreign Government Permits so that your birds don't fall under legal scrutiny, even confiscation, and heavy fines, for deviating from the import permit terms and conditions. If you are a USA resident and would like us to do the quarantine for your SAMDPR birds, we only need to keep the birds for 30 days, as opposed to if you were going to send birds to CANADA which would cause delays because "Per the South African Government Permit" there is a very important clause which states specifically that they require the pigeons to be in country of origin (meaning where the birds are coming from) for a minimum period of 3 months "prior" to exportation to SAMDPR. "Pigeons have to have been in the country of origin (Where they are coming from) at least 3 months prior to shipment". Please see the 2018 Official South African Import permit to verify this for yourself. The Avian Vet must also sign off on this requirement found on the VETERINARY CERTIFICATE, before the birds are shipped. If you are outside the USA and would like us to do the quarantine for your birds, this rule also applies to us. We need to have your birds a minimum of 3 months before we can export them to South Africa. Plan accordingly to avoid delays.
We are located just 20 minutes outside of Salt Lake City, Utah which is a MAJOR DELTA HUB with National and International Flights Departing daily to major non-stop destinations around the world.
We have NEVER had to deal with delays due to flights being overbooked, which affect your birds over extended periods of time.
We do not have budget restrictions when it comes to providing the highest quality of care for your birds, and their well being. We do this because we enjoy it and we give it 110%! We keep all the birds at our quarantine facility which is very large and spacious, which prevents overcrowding. Only designated officials are allowed to visit our facility so that they can sign off on the quarantine inspection processes.
We are an approved DELTA CARGO SHIPPER, which gives us significant leverage on how we get your birds out of the country, safely and ethically. We also always book direct flights for your birds out of the country using the fastest and most direct routes possible. We keep you regularly updated throughout the entire process.
A VERY IMPORTANT POINT TO KEEP IN MIND: When the birds arrive at our facility, they stay at our facility the entire time until they ship out to their final destination, wherever that may be world-wide.
Nowadays you have many options when it comes to choosing an experienced USA Exporter!
Let us earn your trust throughout the entire process by sending your birds our way.
When you ship with Avian Export Services, You're birds are in good hands.
