    Question Commercial Shippers that travel middle Tennesse to Chicago area

    I will be relocating so I have emailed a few companies about shipping my horse from north of Nashville TN to Chicago IL area but I have come up empty handed.

    Brookledge- does not travel this route
    Nationwide- does not travel this route

    Could anyone recommend a reputable company that might go this route?!?!?

    NOT interested in using U-Ship

    Thanks!!!

    Call Drexler up in Chicago. They used to take my horse from Chicago to the TN/VA border when I was in school. I think the subcontracted the second part of the trip to Carolina Horse Transport, but this was many years ago.

    Cox Equine Transportation, out of Gainesville, TX. I shipped from Ohio to CT and all went great.

    C&E or Tony Aprile would be my best guesses. They run (or used to) the I-65 corridor from Chicago to Florida and back. I thought Drexler did, too. I used Tony Aprile (708-903-7574) to ship a horse a few years back from FL to KY- I have nothing but good to say about the experience. Definitely A+ service!

    Call Craig at C&E if he's heading that way. Or check out their facebook page.
