Gina Schick: Eventstars

Yesterday I had a bit of a drama to deal with – in that a transport company picked up a young TB from me. Mine (who travelled to me many hours on a truck on it’s own) was a bit sticky about loading, not helped by the abrupt approach being taken with it (we ‘mares’ like a little more tact!).
I then get a phone call shortly after to say they’d taken my TB off to load another on at a racing stable and couldn’t get mine back on. Said horse was thankfully able to stay in a box at Baker Racing and I got on the phone to Majestic.
As always, Majestic sorted it out pronto, with their usual prompt service (I find if Majestic say they’re dropping a horse off at 2.30, my electric road gate is opening at 2.30 on the dot!). Their new driver, first day on her own, unloaded 3 happy horses at my end, credit to her driving and horsemanship.
Majestic may not be the cheapest around, but they don’t take your horse on a scenic tour of the country and their loading/travelling systems work well – they don’t compromise horses.

We would not use anyone else, you guys are extremely professional. Julie keeps me constantly updated with arrival times etc which is great as I have to duck out from work and the guys on the trucks are awesome! We would highly recommend and thank you for the peace of mind you guys give when our horses and precious foals are travelling!

Bev Macdonald

I was extremely worried about my horses being transported to the Wairapapa from Wanganui. Especially my 23year old mare, who on any other occasion has always arrived stiff and sore after being trucked or floated as she is arthritic, so she was my main concern.
Upon the truck arrival I was immediately put to ease and felt relaxed about them being trucked with your driver. The horses arrived in excellent condition and not stressed at all, even the old horse came off free moving.
I can not thank you enough for getting my horses to their new home safely and in good condition. So it goes without saying I would highly recommend Majestic horse Floats to anybody wanting to have their horses transported .
Once again, Thank you!
From Maxine, Rufus and Kiger

We were travelling our thoroughbred in a quality float from North Wellington to Hamilton. However when we checked the horse at Foxton, we discovered he was very agitated, sweaty and shaking. We rang Majestic’s 0800 number whilst parked on the side of the road at Foxton and we agreed we could drop the horse at Majestic Bulls and they would transport it the following day to Hamilton. OMG what Lifesavers, as we were in a very difficult situation with the horse. We were met at Majestic Bulls by a friendly man, and our horse could not wait to unload. He went into a grass paddock with hay a new mate over the fence and settled right in. What a huge relief for us, and thank you so much Majestic for going the extra mile to help us.

I found everything great right from the team that answered the phone through to the driver who dropped them off. When I called they were friendly and super helpful they gave me a price and date right away. The driver who delivered them was awesome! The horses all arrived happy and relaxed he helped me put them all away into the paddocks after taking them off the truck. I was having a little trouble with Jones (the Colt) he wouldn’t walk through the gates and into his paddock so before he unloaded the girls and came and gave me a hand with getting Jones into his paddock and doing the gates. It may not sound like much but it was a big help and I really appreciated it.

Unusual Cargo – Ilama’s South Island to Northland

We found your whole service amazing. Everyone was really friendly and helpful. Jasmine was  fantastic  updating us on the journey and the llamas arrived in good shape and very easy to unload. They didn’t appear stressed after the journey and settled in really well. Thank you so much for your good care and superb excellent transport. I didn’t need to be so anxious!

Simon made a wee video which gives you some profile and has been sharing that to all our friends. https://photos.app.goo.gl/G8uRBvYFEf251e7W6

I have been so nervous about getting my horse Tom to his new home. I am moving overseas and I have about a million things to worry about, but the team at Majestic Horse Transport took the biggest thing off my list – getting my boy safely to his next home. They were absolutely great to help me on short notice, they called me and kept me in the loop every step of the way, and they treated him so well. Tom managed the journey from North Island to South Island extremely well, and I can’t thank Chris, Anthony and the rest of the team enough for everything you did to make it a smooth and easy move on both of us. I would absolutely recommend this company to anyone who wants the best for their horse.
