Shipping Animals – Top Reasons to Avoid Cheap Horse Transportation

Shipping Animals – Top Reasons to Avoid Cheap Horse Transportation

DATE: 01/25/10

If you need to ship a horse, you might be tempted to find the cheapest available services for shipping animals. But there are several reasons you need to reconsider using cheap  horse transport. Here are just a few of them.

  • Shoddy transportation equipment—Some cheap animal shipping companies are run by individual contractors who use their own equipment to ship the horse. This could mean old, beat up trucks and trailers. This exposes your animal to serious danger.
  • Limited services—Cheap animal shipping companies don’t have the capabilities to offer you all the services of an established, reputable company. They can’t ship to many destinations, and they don’t have different options regarding how to ship your animal (air, truck, etc.).
  • Lack of experience—You want to make sure you choose a company that has been shipping animals for a long time. Experienced companies have detailed processes for safely loading and unloading animals to ensure a safe trip, and allow horse handlers to accompany the movement of the horse. Cheap animal shipping services typically lack this experience.
  • No shipment tracking—Small shipping companies don’t have the technology to offer shipment tracking. Amerijet, on the other hand, lets you track your animal shipment online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to see exactly where your horse is at all times.

In short, with cheap horse transport, you get what you pay for. Amerijet has been shipping animals of all types for many years. During this time, we’ve shipped many horses, including thoroughbred racehorses, to destinations throughout the world.
