Not in Colorado?  Not a Problem!

While we do NOT ship, we can connect you with Jo Kelley of BWC Gerbils who is able to transport to nearly any state Coast to Coast (California excluded as gerbils are illegal in the state).

How Transportation Works

Below Information is courtesy of Pam Thompson of I Love Gerbils

First thing you need to know is it is the responsibility of the BUYER to set up and pay the transporter. The typical average cost is $50 per carrier.  Below I have listed a few recommendations for transporters that I have worked with.

Before making payment to the transporter, confirm with SELLER the date, time, and pickup location that the transporter will provide to you.  You want to make sure the SELLER is available to meet the transporter.  Sometimes the location is too far and the SELLER may not be willing to make the drive.  I personally will drive up to 25+ miles away from my home in Westminster, CO for an additional charge to cover gas.

It's important to note that individual transporters have different rule and prices. Some require water bottles while some prefer cucumber because the bottle can leak during travel.  Some of the questions the transporter will require is:

- type of animal

- how many

- size/type of carrier

- seller info

Once everything is worked out for pick-up and delivery, you will work with the SELLER to purchase your critters, a carrier, a water bottle, and food if needed.  I provide food for up to 4 day travel.  I do not usually charge for food unless it's more than 4 day travel.  If you need food for the transition once they are home, you will need to purchase.  I feed Higgins Sunburst.

Estimate costs for SELLER to transport a gerbil(s):

  • $45 for a pair (singles $25), discount for trios and quads.

  • $10 for Medium carrier (1-2 gerbils)

  • $20 for Large carrier (3 to 4 gerbils)

  • $6 per water bottle

  • Gas fee if meet up is over 20 mile drive one way.

 

Transport Pick Up Day:

 

The SELLER will prepare the critters in the carrier. I provide fresh bedding, toilet paper rolls so they don't get bored, food, and a water source.  The carrier will be labeled with your full name, State you live in, and type/number of critters in the carrier.  SELLER will meet transporter at agreed on pick up location. At that time, the transporter will make sure the animals are healthy.  Once handed off to the transporter, the SELLER will message the BUYER to confirm the transfer has happened and the critters are on the way.

Transport Delivery Day:

It is the responsibility of the transporter to provide the delivery date, time, and location to the BUYER. Once the animal is in their care, all communication to the BUYER will come from the transporter.  Bear in mind that it's not an exact science.  There are plenty of things that can hold up the time of delivery. Traffic, potty break, flat tire, etc.

Once the critters are delivered, the BUYER should contact the SELLER to confirm they arrived safe and sound.
