Ian Mackenzie

Ian, the proprietor of Move my Pet, has had a profound love for pets spanning over four decades, owning a vast array of pets himself. Presently, he calls rural Lincolnshire his home, where he shares his abode with his feline companion, Bluebell, and a host of tropical fish.

Inspired by his unwavering passion, Ian opted to work independently and established Move my Pet.

Moreover, Ian's family lineage is steeped in animal transportation, dating back to his Great Great Uncle, a licensed carter, who transported small animals and poultry via horse-drawn carts around Devon and Cornwall in the early 1800s.

Despite being based in Sleaford, Ian's services are available throughout the entirety of the UK, including Scotland and Northern Ireland.
