HI all, does anyone know what i would need to do to modify my van to transport live animals through europe. I've got DEFRA coming out in a couple of weeks but they charge whether your van's ready or not then i'd have to make the alterations and pay for them to come out again. Just if anyone does it now i'd like the basics please.

Good question, simple answer is i dont know. I would guess depends on what animals your carrying? Horses for example require certain things where say a dog needs a pet passport ( dont ask... Ill reach for the bottle ). Fish are yet another so.. I bet if you using your chosen field were to look up companys already in this field you could simply copy what they get upto or even give them a call and ask
