Title: WONDERFUL INTERSTATE TRANSPORTER
Post by: Bona Fide on September 17, 2011, 07:56:08 PM
702-896-6015, Refman_55@yahoo.com. SUPER reasonable, SUPER nice! The lady I'm in contact is Stephanie Rapp-Brooks, but the phone number is to their "base" which is her family (The Rapps).

Stephanie was very professional and sooo nice! She kept me updated everyday, made a point to go the extra mile to give my girls extra attention and ensured their comfort and it was a pleasure to meet her and hers.

I don't forsee ever using another shipper. Let me be the first to tell you quality was NOT sacrificed in anyway, shape or form for the price. I am BEYOND impressed.

A BIG Thank You to Stephanie!

PLEASE NOTE THEY ARE PACIFIC STANDARD TIME!

Hope this helps someone - first hand experience - you can feel comfortable trusting her with any of your animals (not just goats)!

I'm gonna make this a sticky so that if any one should need a transporter they'll have her number readily available.

Pacific time..means the west coast, right?  I wonder though if she would go to central U.S. and bring two down to South U.S.?  That's a lot of dead weight hauling.  Guess I'll have to call her and find out. :)

Thanks for the great info BonaFide. :)

Birdie - she makes all sorts of trips. This trip for her was NV - NE - KS - KY - TN - NC - VA - NY - MI - CA - (OR maybe?) back to NV. There were mini donkeys on the trailer w/the girls and it was SOO hard not to grab one - LOL One was a tiny critter and oh so sweet - not hardly a bit taller than the girls! :) I know she said she's arranging a trip east in Oct or Nov...don't remember. :)

 You just answered my question. I was going to ask where they were located and where
they traveled. Thanks.

I'm going to contact her...when the time comes...we may go ahead and purchase a stock trailer and go get the boys ourselves.  We could make the trip to the farm on the way back as a lay over point, and then bring them on down the next day if it gets too long for them.  But with Shane's job, working 12 to 16 hour days, on call most weekends, and buying a new place, you always have fix/repair/build and rebuilding going on, so it might be worth it to have her bring them down, so we can continue working on the new place. 

We're looking at small places every weekend.  Decided that maybe if we move the trailer out to a few acres of land, we can at least bring Taddy and Prince home.  They won't have the 5 acre pasture that they had back at the farm, but they actually would do fine on an acre or little more, so we're looking for that now.  Get this trailer pulled out of this place, put on a few acres (5 to 10 acres) and when the farm does sell, then sell this trailer with that land, and move to the big farm. :)  That's our new plans, so hopefully that will work out. 

With what we're paying in Lot rent in the park, we can buy a piece of land and pay less money..why coat the owners pockets to continue living in this nasty place that he has no intentions of cleaning up.  >:(
