In case of breakdown, traffic problems or road closures etc we will endeavour to get to our booking as fast as we can.

We have full roadside and a special breakdown relay cover independently for our lorries and trailers.  If we do not make the booking then a full refund will be given or you will have the option to book an additional day with us. If we are late we will make up the time where appropriate.


Our animals are kept to the highest welfare standards as set down by DEFRA.


We expect all clients to have consideration and respect for our animals.  If in the reasonable opinion of any person in authority, you or any member of your party behaves in such a way as to cause or be likely to cause danger, upset or distress our animals or staff, we are entitled, without prior notice, to terminate the booking with immediate effect.  No refunds will be made and we will not pay any expenses or costs incurred as a result of the termination.

Force Majeure

“Force majeure” means any event, which we the supplier of the service(s) in question could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid.  Such events may include war or threat of war, riot, civil strife, terrorist activity or actual threatened terrorist activity, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events outside our control.  When a major road/motorway is closed, we cannot accept blame for being late but we will always stay additional hours, to make up for lost time where appropriate.  We adhere strictly to all regulations relating to animal travel.
