Do you offer horsebox and driver services?
We may be able to help so please ring and discuss.
I do not meet all your hire criteria, does this mean I cannot hire a horsebox from you?
Not necessarily. If you do not meet all of the criteria we may just have to make further checks and seek additional case-by-case approvals from our insurers. Not meeting a lot of the criteria requirements will most likely result in not being able to hire our vehicles.
Can I pick up the vehicle the night before as I have an early start in the morning?
Yes, you can pre-book to pick-up the horsebox the night before for a fee of £20 – payable at the time of booking on-line. Please note, however, that this cannot be guaranteed if the vehicle has been booked for a particularly late drop-off the day before. In such cases you will be notified as soon as possible and the additional charge will be refunded.
