Wanted: hire of double livestock trailer- Wilts/Hants
« on: October 11, 2016, 08:23:49 pm »
Is there anyone in the Wilts/Hants ares that could loan us a double livestock trailer & maybe vehicle to tow it. We are moving from  Andover to nr Knighton, Powys , hopefully end of November, & have 20 Jacobs sheep to move - 8 ewes and 12 lambs. I have exhausted all trailer hire places in the locality including Dorset and Berkshire. Apparently we live in the wrong area for livestock as it's mostly horses here. We have only found one company that may be able to help, in Craven Arms,  Shropshire, but they currently don't have any for hire.

We can't afford livestock hauliers as quoted £2,500.

My husband has his movement licences, we would pay for the loan & would obviously clean it before return.

If you can help or know someone who may be able to, plse get in touch.
Thanks

Try gillies in Yorkshire, they may be able to quote a good price :)
There is someone else in NW called LE Jones http://lejones.co.uk/ No idea on cost though.  There is a whole load on here......

Hope you find something soon! Hope this helps and all the best :thumbsup:
