    Default Any east coast shipper recommendations?

    I usually use the Canadian based haulers that would come into Canada, and I already have several west coast based haulers that I use in the US, but am not familiar with any good east coast ones at all

    I am looking to have a mare picked up in CT and brought to the Buffalo, NY area

    Any ideas of who I can contact that is safe and reputable with good equipment and a fair price?

    Thanks everyone!

    I used Griffinsburg Equine out of VA to ship my horse from NC to CT. Not sure if they would go from CT to Buffalo, but may be worth calling them as you never know. Great service! My horse was happy. www.griffinsburgequine.com/horsetransport.htm

    Potomac Horse Carriers, they're based out of Maine. I used them to ship my boy up to Maine from PA and back again. I absolutely love them. They have a website as well.

    "Nobody's Business" in Pa http://americanhorsecarriers.homeste...inessFarm.html ( Driver "Bryan"). We followed in the car. Normally one of my horses is NOT a good rider, comes out drenched in sweat because he is nervous. This time he stood at the gas station (a break for fill up) for a good 30 mins and didn't paw, wasn't sweaty. Driver was very smooth, but not slow. They hauled in a C&C, nice wide rig.

    I recommend the Nunn brothers. They are race horse trainers (tbs so they have those box stall trailers)

    They are based out of NJ, but frequently travel up and down the east coast with tbs and other horses. They are very good (Doug and i spent an hour and half trying to laod a BIG 2 year old that didnt want to.ugh. we got him on...lol...just took a while.

    Doug Nunn is 732-829-9226

    NYCONN, based in Wilton, CT. We used them for all our showing 25 years ago and they have recently brought several retirees to us from the Northeast a few times. Beautiful rigs, knowledgeable drivers. Many barns in the NE use them to haul for WEF. Very reputable, very professional.

    If you didn't get one... google PDQ Transport, wonderful service, prices, and a horseman first, truck driver 2nd, with a very nice rig. (not 18 wheeler) Tony LePore. I have his email, but not on this 'puter.

    HUGE thumbs up for TJ at Potomac Horse Transport!

    When I pulled into the meeting place and saw his beautiful well kept rig, I was so grateful that he had been recommended to me

    The mare had a few "issues" coming off his trailer and on to mine and he was fabulous and patient throughout

    I cant thank everyone enough for giving me several excellent recommendations that I could have used. Potomac just happened to win out on this one as his schedule worked out the best for what I was looking for

    Thanks again
