It is with great regret that Walkers European Express Services Ltd will cease operating its animal transport service within England, Scotland and Wales with immediate effect. This decision has been reluctantly reached due to the continuing escalation of the running costs involved, which economically now mean we cannot offer the high level of service we aim to provide and still run a profitable business.
We have explored every avenue to carry on and consulted many of our customers about further price increases to counter the astronomical cost of fuel, cardboard and wood for the boxes we provide, but unfortunately many of them are in the situation where they cannot absorb these increases themselves.
We will still offer a service for pigeons into Ireland (coming soon), Belgium and Holland subject to the new quarantine regulations.
We have made many friends throughout the years running this service so this decision was not an easy one to come to, and we hope you all understand the reasons behind it.
We wish all our customers the very best in the future and continued success with their businesses.
