How to start a Pet Cremation Business

Starting out in the Pet Cremation industry can be a challenge, especially if you are unsure on legislation or protocol. You must be hard-working, have attention to detail and most of all be respectful of all animals and your clients wishes.

Selecting a Location for your Pet Crematoria

Typically you would look for somewhere not too built up - mainly because the atmosphere you can create in a more rural setting is much more suitable and respectful than an inner city area. It will also reduce the amount of objections to planning if required in your country.

It should also have:

  • Good catchment area
  • Plenty of space to expand
  • Rural locations are best
  • Be affordable

Planning & Permit Application

As mentioned above, location can be key in obtaining a permit (if required). Inciner8 always suggest you have a discussion with your local authorities about settign up a pet cremation business. Not only will they be able to advise on permits and licensing, they will likely know the typical objections and failings that occur locally.

Buying a Pet Cremator

We suggest buy one that large enough to grow into. For example if you never plan to cremate anything larger than a dog, we'd suggest staying with models such as our i8-55A, i8-75A or i8-250 - the later giving you more space to process multiple cremation simultaniously. We offer a range of supporting accessories such as cremulators, seggregation trays and urns. Speak to one of our pet cremation experts today.

Our Pet Cremators are in use across the UK and beyond. When you have to handle something so sensitive its important that this is done in a conciousenous manner. Our years of experience in this sector ensure you get the best aftersales support available and the market leading product.

You should also check to see if there are ways to separate the remains if you choose to do multiple cremations at once.

Pet Crematorium for Sale
