Terms and Conditions

  • We require that all horses we transport MUST have a Current Negative Coggins (within the last 6 months, original document preferred, not a copy). Since some states require health papers to cross state lines we require a health certificate completed by a licensed veterinarian within 30 days prior to transport. These health certificates cannot be falsified or changed in any way. If we are held at a check point for false papers, the shipper of the horse in question will agree to pay $30 per hour of delay time. If the horseis registered copies of registration papers should accompany the horse during transport.
  • RATES: As economic conditions change rapidly we quote each transport at the lowest possible price. Any quoted price will apply to the specific trip requested. We will not change our quoted price for the trip requested. We reserve the right to make changes to the quoted price if the customer changes/adjusts the quoted transport. MINIMUM: $350 West Coast, $450 East Coast TOLLS: All tolls will be charged back to the customer and added to the delivery amount due.
  • A minimum non-refundable deposit of $100.00 or 20% (whichever is greater) is at time of booking for transports in the 48 contiguous states. 40% of the quoted transport fee will be at pick-up and balance of the quoted transport fee (plus any additional expenses ie. toll fee, veterinarian fee, etc) will be upon delivery. A 50% non-refundable deposit is at time of booking for any hauls to or from Alaska.
  • o Cashiers checks and personal checks are NOT accepted!! o Cash, Money Order, or PrePaid through PayPal are accepted and must be paid in full prior to off-loading your horse. NON PAYMENT: If any sum of money besides the charges for transportation is to be collected from the consignee on the delivery of said animals and the same is not paid at once, the Shipper agrees that DDP High Desert Equine Transport, LLC may, at its option, retain said animals with ordinary and reasonable care, at the risk and expense of the Shipper, or may return same to the Shipper, the Shipper to pay charges for transportation both ways and all other expenses. In the event suit must be brought to collect this transport account, Shipper agrees to pay all reasonable attorney fees, court cost and five percent interest per annum. Liability & Indemnification: Insurance is strongly recommended and parties involved are recommended to obtain “full mortality” livestock insurance in an amount not less than the value of the horse(s). Both parties involved shall indemnify DDP High Desert Equine Transport, LLC against any claims arising out of this contract or related in any way to the horse(s), including the expenses of defending any such claim. If the owner, shipper, or agent, elects not to carry horse/animal/mortality insurance then all risk is assumed therein (to include, but not limited to injury, death, illness, disease, physical damage, or harm) by the owner, shipper, or agent. If the owner or its agents elect not to secure insurance, then he or she assumes all expenses and/or liabilities associated with the transportation of the transported horse(s). DDP High Desert Equine Transport, LLC carries insurance in the amount of $60,000. It ONLY covers instances occurring from vehicle accidents. Loading & Unloading: All loading/unloading must be completed within 30 minutes from time of our arrival. Any loading/unloading not completed within 30 minutes will require an additional $30.00 per hour pro-rated on a half hour basis. NON PAYMENT: If any sum of money besides the charges for transportation is to be collected from the consignee on the delivery of said animals and the same is not paid at once, the Shipper agrees that DDP High Desert Equine Transport, LLC may, at its option, retain said animals with ordinary and reasonable care, at the risk and expense of the Shipper, or may return same to the Shipper, the Shipper to pay charges for transportation both ways and all other expenses. In the event suit must be brought to collect this transport account, Shipper agrees to pay all reasonable attorney fees, court cost and five percent interest per annum. Transport Booking Requirements: We prefer a three-week advance notice for booking. If a short notice request is made for trips already scheduled we will consider the request if our schedule allows it and space is available. Your horse's spot on the haul is considered booked once the contract is completed and your non-refundable deposit has been received. Should cancellation by the customer be necessary, we require a 72-hour advance notification prior to the pick-up appointment. Cancellations of 72 hours or less will forfeit any and all monies paid toward transport. Any refunds of moneys paid over and above the non-refundable deposit will be sent back to the customer within 30 days of cancellation. Mileage Estimates: We base our mileage estimates (transport quotes) on best truck routes and information provided by the customer. This gives us the best and safest routing for your horse, our drivers and equipment. Customers need to provide accurate mileage from nearest town/city if pick-up or delivery location cannot be determined on a mileage map. Inaccurate information provided by the customer can cause additional charges to be added to original transport quote. Correct zip codes are important. Feeding and Breaks during trips: Customers (shippers) are asked to supply a bale of hay for each horse transported. This will allow the horse to maintain its usual feed source. Additional hay and water will be included in the trip price. Depending on length of trip, frequent breaks of 30 minutes will be taken to physically inspect, feed and water horses. These breaks will take place approximately every 3 to 4 hours during trip. We have found that adding a small amount (just enough to barely flavor) of orange flavored Gatorade (the house brands are fine) to your horse's water 4-5 days prior to pick up will help your horse drink better because we add it to our water on the trip as well and it fools the horses into thinking it's their home water. If you have any questions please check with your veterinarian. Customer's Special Instructions: Any special needs of any horse must be noted on the contract at time of booking (medications, supplements, feed, etc). Special needs that require extended time during our scheduled 30 minute break time shall be at a rate of $30.00 per hour, pro-rated on a quarter hour basis. Contact Information: Customers must be available for contact prior to pick-up and delivery. Special arrangements can be made if customers will not be available for pick-up or delivery but are subject to approval by DDP High Desert Equine Transport, LLC. We will supply contact mobile phone numbers to both customers (shipper and receiver). If requested, we can contact the customer by phone daily with transport progress information. All requests for special arrangements will be considered on an individual basis and DDP High Desert Equine Transport, LLC will make the final decision.

  • Under federal law called the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN), electronic signatures are just as valid and enforceable as those signed by the contracting party's own hand. And Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) has been adopted by 47 states within the United States and establishes the validity of electronic signatures in contracts much in the same way that the ESIGN does. The UETA works like the ESIGN, but on an in-state level, while the ESIGN works on an interstate level.)
