What others say....

The box was faultless . . .

Highly recommend!!! 👌🏻👌🏻
Could not be more helpful and so knowledgeable.
Used Nags on the move for the first time at the weekend and the box was faultless.
I have a big heavy mare and have been struggling to find a 3.5t to transport her whilst I wait to be able to do my HGV licence.
Danny and Emma were absolutely fab and gave all the information we need and put our mind at rest that their box would be more than adequate to accommodate my mare.
We used the Bloomfield box on Sunday to take her to Thorndon Park and it was fab!
The horse camera is such a great touch too so I could keep an eye on her.
Plenty of room for her and such a smooth drive.
Loved it so much we have booked again for August!
Could not recommend enough 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
