    Default Need Van Air Ride Only Shipper Recommendations From NJ to NC

    Shipping two horses from NJ to NC end of Jan/beginning of Feb. I have used Equine Express, but it has been 12 yrs. I did have a good experience, but am wanting to shop around, if possible? I am only interested in the companies that offer the big rigs with air ride.

    I have also contacted Holly Hill since they haul a lot of my friends into Wellington and they have had great experiences, but I can't get anyone to call back with a quote. Not exactly off to a great start. lol

    Thank you for your help!

    Equine Express is my go to but Brookledge and Andrew Simoff also run that route often. Any big trailer is going to have air ride.

    Thank you for your response. Interesting...I emailed Brook Ledge late this afternoon and will call tomorrow since it was after hours. Some of my TB race friends in KY also recommend them.

    Yes, of course you are correct that the large vans all have air ride. I was trying to ensure what type of rig I meant...lol

    I will google Simoff since I am not familiar with them. I did chat with Dave and Holly Hill today and I need to get back with them closer in the actual haul dates.

    Thanks again!

    I've had good experiences with BrookLedge shipping my two geldings between Central Florida and Western NY.

    Brookledge has done a super job for me a bunch of times…Va to Ocala and Aiken. Really took great care of the horses!

    Friend is using Johnston Horse Transportation to go from PA to FL based on some recommendations of friends that have used them.

    Loved Equine Express. I shipped my Warmblood from New York to Texas and he rode air ride in a box stall the whole way. He was in perfect condition when he arrived and everyone was so nice and knowledgeable. It's invaluable having great people to get this kind of job done!
