#1) Get a Quote
The first step in the process to get your horse shipped, is to “Get a Quote”. You can do this in one of two ways, through our website by email or over the phone. To get a quote by email, click the “Get Quote” button on the right, or the “Get Quote” button on the home page, fill out the “Get Quote” form, and click submit. This sends one of our dispatchers an email and they will reply to you the same business day, if it is submitted by 4:30pm, Central Standard Time. You can also feel free to call us on our 1-800-545-9098 number, during our normal business hours, and speak to a dispatcher or assistant dispatcher to get a quote immediately. You can also take this time to ask any questions you might have and discuss what schedules are available. Please have the zip code where your horse is located, the zip code where it is going to be delivered, and the breed, gender, and age of the horse ready when you call. Please note that getting a quote does not constitute booking a trip! If you do not formally “Book a Trip” with us, we will not be saving your horse a spot or working to get your horse on a route or schedule.
#2 Book a Trip
The second step in the process to get your horse shipped, is to “Book a Trip”. You do this by clicking the “Book Trip” button on the right, or the “Book Trip” button on the home page, fill out the “Book Trip” form, and click submit. This form is lengthy because we need detailed information about who the customer is (who is paying for the shipment), who the shipper is (who will be putting the horse on the trailer), who the receiver is (who will be accepting the horse at delivery), detailed horse information (so that we can take the best care of your horse while it is with us), who in our office quoted you and how much you were quoted, and what your preferred shipping date is. PLEASE NOTE: We will try our hardest to get as close to your preferred shipping date as possible, but it is under no circumstances guaranteed that we will be picking up your horse on the date you enter in the form. You should receive an automated reply email saying “Thank you for booking a trip with us”, this is how you know you have submitted the form correctly! If you do not receive the automated email please call us as soon as you can during our normal business hours and we can assist you with the form.
