Good Morning,

Just wanted to say many thanks to you for an excellent service in transporting my new 3 year old from Kent to Rutland. The driver Ross was fantastic – making him a bigger area so he could travel loose and letting me know he was settled in his overnight ‘hotel’. He came off the lorry very relaxed today and I was very impressed with the standard and cleanliness of the lorry.

And to top it all very good value – I certainly won’t hesitate in recommending you.

Kind Regards

Helena

I just wanted to drop you a short note of thanks, you brought my 2yr old Cleveland Bay all the way from West Sussex to south Aberdeenshire.  He is a large baby boy and has a very limited amount of travelling under his belt.

He arrived calm and happy after his two day journey, that night he was flat out sound asleep in his stable, not stressed in the slightest. You truly are exceptional at what you do, many thanks for making my job when he arrived home so much easier.  Thank you!!

Dear All,

Just a quick email to thank you all at Eric Gillie for getting my boy Welly to me safe and sound. It was a long old trek from north London to Perthshire, especially as he is no spring chicken! He arrived looking a lot more bonnie than I expected and is now out enjoying the highland weather (?!) with views to die for. I cannot thank you enough for getting him to me in one piece and for the obvious care and attention he had from the time you picked him up, to the time her arrived to me. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone, although I do think your reputation does go before you anyway. Please do use this as a testimonial for your website if you would like to. Thanks again.

Kind regards – Vivien

Hi,

I would just like to thank you for your excellent service when transporting my new pony from Cumbria up to Aberdeenshire last week.  It is very reassuring to know that everything is taken care of so efficiently when you feel pretty anxious about your how your new acquisition will cope!!

Many thanks – and to the drivers!

Yours sincerely

Karen

Just a wee note to say a huge thank you to all at Eric Ghillies for Mikey’s safe transport from Hitchin  to Thornhill. He walked off the lorry as fresh as a daisy, totally unstressed. I would always recommend Gillies to anybody looking for a horse transporter. Thanks again to you all. Sheila

Many thanks again, particularly to Chris for picking up the colt at the time she said she would.

All the best

Hi there,

I wanted to say a big thank you for the care you took today transporting Ollie and for excellent customer service.  Mark was really excellent, making contact last night, and calling me twice today on his way over to let me know where he was.  The whole thing went really well and Ollie came off the lorry looking fresh as a daisy.  The person I bought him from also commented on how good Mark is, saying he clearly knows what he’s doing.  I’m really impressed and would definitely use your services again.

Thanks very much.

Regards,

Mary

Here are just a few of the comments Eric Gillie Ltd have received:

Dear Eric, Karen and all the Team

Just a quick note to say many thanks for the fantastic service you provided when picking up our 3 gorgeous Miniature Shetland boys (Rolo, Rio and Rocco) from Devon and bringing them up to us in the Scottish Highlands.Your communication throughout the whole process was excellent and the way you clearly cared for them during transportation was obvious and reassuring. They’ve settled in really quickly which also confirms to me that they were as happy as they could be during the long journey up.When researching their movement, I was told that you were the very best, even by other equine transporters……and they were certainly correct.

Many thanks for everything.

Regards Pete Curtis MBE

Hi

Just wanted to commend your driver southbound on the M1 J26 to J23a this evening. Weather was atrocious. Was really impressed with your driver, really well driven even with idiots pulling straight across in front of him. Your lorry lighting extremely visible all round in the poor conditions too. Really kept those cars who like to sit right behind large vehicles right back.

Granted I’m a horsey person so maybe I noticed him more, but I just thought you’d like to know.

Hope your driver made it to their destination safely.

Cheers, Alice

I have just had my Clydesdale move by your company and wanted to express how thoroughly impressed I was with you service – I needed to move my horse as quickly as possible he had only traveled once before and I tried to move him with another local haulage company who tuned up with a 2 birth horse box insisting he would fit in no bother -he had other ideas and 2 hours later they gave up. The Alan’s arrived this morning so calm so confident so professional – I was told they would get him in no matter how long it took – the transport  was amazing  spacious and hydraulically lowered so he just walked straight in. I’m not saying the day was without incident but that was mainly to do with 2 branches being cut down so wagon could fit in yard and stupid narrow Cumbrian roads where there was literally millimeters to spare again all praise to the driver. I can not recommend your company strongly enough – they were amazing I have total confidence and wouldn’t hesitate to use this company again .Thanks Tina.

“I would like to say a huge ‘THANK YOU’ to everyone involved in delivering Alfie and Kestrel safely to Skye. I was very impressed with your service – particularly putting my mind at rest during our many phone calls! I will certainly recommend your company to friends. The ponies arrived chilled and happy after their long journey. I was quite overcome to see them again!”

“Thank you also for looking after them in Kelso while the lorry was fixed, I think they enjoyed the rest, grass and sunshine. Unfortunately the weather here has taken a turn for the worse and the ponies are hiding in the shelter away from the heavy rain and wind – ahh well that’s Skye for you!”

“Once again, thank you very much for all your help and for taking such care of the ponies.”


“I just wanted to write and thank you very much for the excellent all-round service that I received when my new 15hh piebald was recently transported over from Belfast to Scotland. He arrived on Monday at 12:00 on the dot as expected!”

“I’m sure you hear it all the time, but it is an anxious period and I’ve nothing but praise for the professional way in which everything was dealt with and really appreciate it. I also appreciate the ease in which he was accommodated at your stabling facilities for a few nights after my initial circumstances changed. I’d have no hesitation in recommending your services to others.”

“Murphy is doing really well and has settled nicely into his new home. Thanks again and best wishes.”


“Thank you for the safe transport of my horse (well my daughter’s really), Mitch, from Sheffield to Devon on Monday and Tuesday of this week. Despite my anxieties about the onward journey on Tuesday with Mitch waiting a long time for collection and then arriving late at his new home in Devon, everything went well and Mitch arrived safe and happy. My daughter saw him this morning and said it was as though he’d always lived there, he was absolutely fine and not at all stressed by his travels.”

“So thank you all very much. Thank you to those I spoke to in the office who always put my mind at rest and had the utmost patience with all my worries in my various phone calls. To, Clive, the driver who was so quiet and patient and helped Mitch load without any stress and to everyone else involved in the logistics of my horse’s move. I shall most definitely recommend you to anyone I know of wanting their horse transported. You were personally recommended to me and with so many “cowboys” out there it was a godsend to hear about you.”


“I’d just like to thank you (Alan in particular!) for the fantastic service you provided collecting Ruby my young mare. She arrived totally calm and laid back and Alan was so great with her when he was unloading her. I have always had my own transport so never needed to use a service like yours but as it was a young horse and such a long way I decided to leave it to the experts and I am so pleased I did. If you could please pass on my gratitude to Alan for doing such a superb job.”


“A huge thank you to all the staff and drivers, especially to Alan and Michael who took Bullseye the second leg of his trip and delivered him today. It was so exciting to see the lorry drawing up and reassuring to see him come out so calmly. I only saw him once as a month old foal and kept up with his progress via email, so what could be simpler than making a booking and waiting for him to arrive. Totally stress free for us at this end and we are grateful to you all for your patience in transporting him safely. Hopefully he will be with us for the next 40-50 years.

Have attached a few pics of the boys at work.”

“Just to say THANK YOU!
Thank you again for the fantastic service as always!!!
Having moved many of my horses for me back and forth from Aberdeen to Surrey, Hampshire, Oxford and various places ‘south’ the grey mare was moved from Petersfield to Dyce arrived yesterday. She’s now settling into her new home. Thank you to Alan and Alistair (hope i’ve got the names right) for replying to my text messages at every stage of the journey!
Very much appriciated.”


“Hello, I am sure that this will seem a strange email, however, I was driving behind one of your lorries this morning, KE99SO (I think) and wanted to say how well it was driven. The road between Carnwath and the Biggar road is appalling, with deep gulleys, huge potholes and tight turns; the driver drove the lorry as it was riding on a piece of silk.
I have always worried about entrusting my two very precious horses to a haulier but after seeing the consideration and care of the driver this morning, I would have no qualms about using Eric Gillie if the need should ever arise.
As I said, this is probably a strange email to receive but I have never been so impressed by a company before that I have emailed them to say “well done.”


“Hi to all at Gillies – Just to say thank you very much for looking after Tilly so well on her long journey south. I hope you didn’t have too many problems with her over the weekend – the reason for her being returned to me was that the loan home found her too much to handle. Both Clare at Varkies and I were pleasantly surprised at how calm she was on arrival, we both anticipated a pony who had gone ‘feral’ She obviously felt quite calm and confident travelling in your amazing lorries –
I will have no hesitation in recommending your company to any of my contacts who need long distance transport and will certainly use you again in the future should the need arise.”


“Just to say the horse travelled in style (wish we had a lorry like that!) and hadn’t even broken sweat.
Your driver Alan was great, and so good with the horse (and manoeuvring the lorry).
Thank you so much for such a welcome professional service, keeping us posted all the way with timing. We will definitely recommend you and have no hesitation in using you again.
Have a good weekend.”


“A big THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU oh so very much for getting O’Malley to my sisters in Hawkhurst, Kent.
I cannot tell you how relieved I am to know he made it there and is now enjoying the sunnier climate and is full of the joys of spring.
Your care and attention to him on his travels was so appreciated and please thank Clive, Andy and the other lady in your office who all contributed to his well being and safe trip.”


“Just to say Thank you again for a job well done. Horse and “luggage” duly collected and delivered with your usual care and helpfullness.”


“Thank you for delivering Fourmerk Tiree safely today. She arrived calm and happy.
You have transported ponies for me for many years and I have never had cause for complaint. They have always been taken care of and have arrived unstressed and in god condition. I wouldn\’t use any other transporter and have recommended you to many other horse/pony owners.”


“Just a little note to thank you all for your great service in transporting Nikita to the new farm in Wickham. Your two drivers were great and I thank you all in the office for your help and assistance. She has settled in well. Thank-you all once again.”


“Hi, Just wanted to thank the driver and the rest of the team for delivering my horse yesterday. It\’s the 3rd time I’ve used the company and the service has been excellent every time!
Best wishes.”


“I just wanted to email to say thank you very much indeed for the safe arrival of our pony Haydon from Culloden, Scotland to Lincolnshire, England.
I must admit I didn’t know what to expect as I have never done this kind of thing before.
Your whole service from start to finish was top notch…..Jane Gillie made me feel totally at ease despite the horrendous weather you all experienced at the time and the gentlemen on the lorry were extremely helpful despite the fact that that our house is situated on a track totally unsuitable for your lorries.
Our pony does have a lovely temperament but he ambled off your lorry with absolutely no stress at all, despite the fact that he was on your lorry all day Friday and Monday and stabled in between (when he is used to living out).
All I can is say is thank you very much and I would not hesitate to recommend you anytime.”


“We would just like to thank you all for a first class service in getting our little pony home from Ireland. He has settled in grand.
Thank you again.”


“Apologies for not mailing sooner!
Hope you and the team areal ok?
Just a quick note to thank you for getting the pony collected.
It seems fine so far….time will tell!”
