Moving pets in the Caucasus

Gosselin is the first moving company in the Caucasus to have Ipata certification. This means that we move pets in Georgia according to internationally respected quality standards. “This recognition will enable us to better meet customers’ demands,” says John Braeckeveldt, who manages the Gosselin offices in Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia. 

“Moving pets is an unusually specialized service,” John says. “We had already been handling pet moves, but usually the customer was put in direct contact with the airlines. Customers ended up coming back with a lot of questions, and I felt it was an opportunity to elevate our services to a higher level. This was why I decided to apply for certification from Ipata, an international organization that provides training, know-how and guaranteed quality in the transportation of pets.”

Pets are like family members

“The major difference between a normal move of household goods is the level of attention and care for the pet. ‘Is the transport cage big enough? Can someone walk the pet during a stopover? Will it have enough to eat and drink?’ 

“People consider a pet to be a member of their family,” John continues. “And this is exactly how Gosselin will treat your pet during an international move, whether it’s a dog, cat or parakeet. Besides, as a moving company, you are on stand-by 24/7 during the transport of a pet. It’s intensive work but it’s also a service that is greatly appreciated.”

Ready for the future

“Since this is the first year we’ve been certified, we’re a provisional member of Ipata for now. Next year, once we’ve finished all the training programs Ipata offers, we’ll be a full member. This will make Gosselin the first moving company in Georgia that offers guaranteed quality for pets in line with internationally respected norms.”

EURO2020

Gosselin joins efforts to support EURO2020

In spite of strict COVID measures, the European soccer federation UEFA is organizing the quadrennial EURO2020 event, and the Euro Media Group (EMG) was asked to provide the live broadcasting services for these soccer matches. Its Belgian division, Videohouse, was commissioned to deploy the necessary resources. It’s about so much more than just cameras, however. Camera people, screen direction, network connections and archiving systems must also get to where they need to be. Child’s play for Gosselin.
