On December 14 the new horse truck type RR1 and the two-horse car was delivered to Alex Nijboer and Pascale Drijfhout from Horses2Fly. On Facebook we shared the photos of the new truck, which received an unprecedented number of responses from many customers and horse lovers. We became extra curious about this company, time for a small interview!
The name says it a bit, but what kind of company are you?
“Horses2Fly takes care of the transport of horses from stable to stable. This means that we arrange all the paperwork, the quarantine and the transport. I had years of experience in the export of animals and Pascale is a veterinarian, from our experience and interests we started our company in 2014. We started with 18 quarantine stables and in recent years we have grown to 70 stalls with 14 compartments. “, tells Alex.
What makes you unique in the export market?
“What makes us unique is the personal approach and close contact with the customers. We keep them informed of all the steps in transport through videos, and photos. In addition, we are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I also believe that our involvement with customers is reflected in the involvement of them in response to the new truck on Facebook. ‘
How did you choose for your own truck and why a Roelofsen?
“We want to offer our customers the very best, we do not want to be the biggest, but the best. Our road transport was always outsourced to all satisfaction, but our own truck is a professionalization for our company and it is also a nice publicity to have horse trucks with our logo on the road.
We have looked at several brands of horse trucks, but opted for a Roelofsen because you have the same objective as we do; The eye for detail and want to be the best. “The good experience of Marcel Jordan with Roelofsen also jhelped us in this choice.
What are your plans for the future, do you have to reserve a new horse truck for 2019?
“Our goal is to grow steadily and above all to maintain the current quality level. Who knows that there will be an extra horse car in the coming years! ”
