T_ _ Transport out of Virginia (I don't think I can use entire name b/c they have already threatened this website w/ a law suit.) You can PM me and I will give you entire name. RUN don't walk away from them!!!!!! Their website is great. Everything else is just horrible. Terrible communication. They would set up a time to pick up my horse and the time would come and go, and they wouldn't show up. No phone call-nothing. They were VERY difficult to get in touch with, wouldn't return messages. I think I heard every excuse in the book, from weather to blow outs! When they finally arrived (almost 4 weeks later, after several broken appointments) the driver was very inpatient/rude. He pulls up with a semi and box trailer (with almost no airflow by the way.) He lets down the ramp on the side and almost immediately gets the buggy whip out. My poor horse tries to go up the ramp, but is almost running in place because the ramp is so slick.
Well this goes on for a couple of hours. Then the driver informs me that, "Your horse is just STUPID!" Which he clearly is not because I can throw the lead rope over his neck and he will load himself in my 3 horse slant! I informed him the horse is scared because the ramp is slick and he tried to load once and almost went down.
So the new owners opt to just come pick him up themselves (excellent move in my opinion!)

I'm new to the Forum but I just had my TB Cross delivered from a new small transport company out of Terrell, Texas called WarHorse Transport, they are also known as Double M WarHorse Ranch. The husband and his partner have started doing other tranports, but before they were only doing Draft Horses for some time, The biggest thing I noted was how CLEAN the trailer was, which is my biggest pet peeve. They were nice, very horse savy and not overly expensive. They are a smaller operation with a 6 horse and 3 horse custom trailer. BUT my horse was in good conditon had Hay and Water on the trailer for the whole trip. I had the pleasure of seeing the most Beautiful Registered Belgian Stud on my horse's delivery that belong to them, their stud was on his way to a farm up North for breeding, he looks almost fairytale, so to have their horse on the same trailer as mine I knew my TB would be in great hands. They did hit some Bad weather which caused a delay but I understand that traveling with horses your first concern is their well being so when they had to stop for the weather, they took a camera phone picture of my horse inside a barn and he was doing great. So I have told many of my friends of my good experience and will use them again. They have a wonderful website with references and DOT licensed.
I have used also Dannie Gilder which I won't use again, my horse was not given a water bucket on the trip, and he was not let out of the trailer at all for any exercise. I also had him on a special diet and none of the feed was even used during the trip.

I also used T _ _ Transport out of VA but mine ended up being a tragic mistake by doing so. He was to transport my special needs baby girl to WY from MI for surgery. He fail to secure the doors of the semi she was traveling in and my sweet baby fell out the back. She is now an Angel in Heaven instead of on earth. I found out about her death only after the vet in WY called to say she hadnt arrived as scheduled. 24 hours later. GROSS NEGLIGENCE on his part!!!!

Has anyone ever used Bill Meyer with Carisbrooke Transport? Out of Whitesboro, TX & Clear lake MN?
I have used Bill Meyer with Carisbrooke Transport to haul two horses from TN to MN...satisfied. He stayed in contact, answered my e-mails on the road with either e-mail responses or phone calls. Horses arrived day later than expected but he had no control over that. Both horses in very good condition upon arrival, well fed and hydrated. Bill was nice and quiet with them.

I have used Creech Brothers in the past and was very satisfied with them. Picked up a horse in Maryland and shipped to Oklahoma. Laid over one night in Kentucky, which I was told would happen and then onto Oklahoma the next day. Very pleased with them and the way the horse looked when he arrived in OK>

There is a company from Montana that I do not recommend anybody to use!! Not sure if I can post his name so go ahead and message me if your thinking of hiring someone from Montana and I can forward the bad experience I had with him!!! Please be safe when chosing your haulers I dont want anybody to go through what I did!!!!
Also very happy with Painted Oaks, Great communication & care for the horse. Also have used: Gold Buckle Transportation, Dalemead, Alberta, Canada. Phone: 406-465-9458, 403-936-5654, Email: email@example.com. Serving USA & Canada. with good results!
Just another shout out to PAINTED OAKS TRANSPORT. Very nice professional people to deal with...Excellent Communication!!
The experience I had with them was very strange to say the least....I was just the drop off/recieving point for the two parties involved and the horses were very well taken care of on the trailer, BUT they scammed the one party involved and tried to scam me in the process......

Premier Horse Transport of California transported my horse from N.CA to Denver, CO. I will definitely use them again whenever I have a need and would recommend them to anyone looking to transport a horse. The whole process with them was like flawless. Everything is done on line and their timing is right on schedule and they do what they promise. Complete professional. Call them! They do Nationwide Transport.

I have used an interstate American Auto Transport Company i.e. AutTransportDepot.com to get my Aston Martin Shipped from Washington to Miami. They just delivered my car according to my expectations. No delays, no hassles and above everything, the car was shipped successfully at a price i could afford. So i would suggest everyone to use same auto mover, if they ought to get their cars moved across USA.

Do not use "Outlaw Transport" out of Bend Oregon. They are unreliable and will not follow through with their plans or pickup dates. They will also cancel on you last minute.
