Horse shipping/transport companies
i'm not sure if this is the right place for this thread so...
i will be moving from Reno to Portland in the coming months and i'm hoping someone can give me some referrals for shipping companies or perhaps tell me about your experiences shipping horses. what do you need to do to prepare for this? how much did you pay (if you feel comfortable sharing)? anything else you can think of would be fantastic.
thanks much! :D
I've used these people, to move a horse from Wendover to my home near Dayton, they were reasonable and very nice, the mans name is Craig they are out of Cottonwood CA.
Horse & Livestock Transportation
Since your going out of state you will need a brand inspection and a current coggins test, the test takes at least a week to get back here, so give yourself time to get it. Check with Oregon Dept of Ag to see if they have any other requirements they may need a health certificate which you can get at the time you get the coggins done.
Professional hauler will be up on everything that is needed so have that conversation with them when you hire. You'll definately need a coggins/brand inspection prior to hauling.
Once you get to Oregon I assume you'll be stabling in Portland. Most of the stables here want to see some kind of proof you are up on all your shots so you'll want to get that info from your vet before leaving NV. Don't forget to be up on your wormer too.
i have some time at least so that's good. i won't be moving the first horse until august i would expect. i'll take a look at that shipping company - thank you! :)
bumity bump. has anyone used these shippers: Nation-Wide Horse Transportation, Inc: Equine Hauling
I have use them to move a stud from Montana to Nevada, they were very good, the only problem with them is they need a place to be able to pull in a semi, they do keep a tight schedule.
so far they are the best cost estimate with the most offerings (nice trucks, etc.). thanks again!
I used Nation Wide when shipping Aidan from CA to SC. They did a great job and I would use them again.
thank you CecilliaB :D
