We found your whole service amazing. Everyone was really friendly and helpful. Jasmine was  fantastic  updating us on the journey and the llamas arrived in good shape and very easy to unload. They didn’t appear stressed after the journey and settled in really well. Thank you so much for your good care and superb excellent transport. I didn’t need to be so anxious!

Simon made a wee video which gives you some profile and has been sharing that to all our friends.

Warm wishes, Sara

I have been so nervous about getting my horse Tom to his new home. I am moving overseas and I have about a million things to worry about, but the team at Majestic Horse Transport took the biggest thing off my list – getting my boy safely to his next home. They were absolutely great to help me on short notice, they called me and kept me in the loop every step of the way, and they treated him so well. Tom managed the journey from North Island to South Island extremely well, and I can’t thank Chris, Anthony and the rest of the team enough for everything you did to make it a smooth and easy move on both of us. I would absolutely recommend this company to anyone who wants the best for their horse.

I just want to say thank you – this is the first time I have used any transport and I was very impressed with my whole experience.A special thanks to the driver who helped us out when our truck couldn’t meet at the designated point – hugely appreciated!

Have a great Easter break.

Hi Ward, just a quick note to say how impressed I was with the two drivers who delivered the latest China Quarantine horses to our facility. They were patient and understanding and a pleasure to deal with
