Customer Testimonials and Reviews

“Thank you Luke for being a rare gentleman in this business. I fully recommend dealing with this company if you are interested in purchasing a horsebox.”
V Osborne
“Just wanted to say how pleased we are with our new lorry from Central England Horseboxes. One week on 3 trips down feeling very comfortable with it. Our young horse has travelled in it very well. Amazing “lockdown” service everything I was told was spot on. Would recommend to anyone lorry hunting. We will be straight back if and when we ever decide to go bigger in the future. Suits us perfectly, my daughter is delighted to be able to drive herself and her horse if I’m not available. Thank you Luke just perfect.”
Julie Mulhern
“A massive thank you Luke for taking the hassle out of selling our horsebox !!! Wishing I had found you last year !! before attempting to sell the box ourselves to time wasters !!!”
Sue Hobden, Nottinghamshire
“Coming from a 4X4 and Ifor Williams trailer, at 7.5 tons, this was our first venture into a bigger horsebox. We searched the internet but kept coming back to one at Central England Horesboxes and after some discussion with Luke, bought, on line, as seen. Luke arranged for a service and full MOT for us and rushed the lorry through so we could use it for a forthcoming event. Went to collect the lorry where Luke met us at the station and took us to his business. He went through all the functions and tools with us and made sure we understood everything. A lot to remember but Luke said that he was always at the end of the phone if we needed any help so that is a great reassurance. He provided a 3 month warranty and amazingly, the vehicle looked in even better condition that in the photos: we are totally delighted. From start to finish this has been excellent with super service provided by Luke whom we feel confident enough to contact again for help and advice and most importantly to highly recommend him to other potential customers.”
Ray Guselli, Herts
“Very pleased with the excellent service provided by Central England Horseboxes in recently selling my 3.5 ton horsevan for me! Luke was very friendly and helpful throughout, whenever I contacted him, from the initial call to inquire about selling it, keeping me up to date with a quick response to my emails throughout, right through to the speedy dispatch to me of my cheque in payment.
He secured me a good price and took care of all the admin, making sure it was serviced, MOT’d and ready for the buyer without me having to become personally involved in the sale at any point. It was a big relief after having tried selling it myself previously and having had to show it to time-wasters. I was even able for a small fee, to have someone come and pick it up from me and drive it to Central England Horseboxes which was was great. Thanks very much for all your efforts.”
Jackie Patten, Cheltenham
“Thank you so much to you and B W Rogers for looking after me and the superb PRB lorry. Your service has been exemplary and it has been a genuine pleasure to deal with you. I will certainly recommend Central England Horseboxes. Many thanks”
Paula Roberts
“I had been aware of Central England Horseboxes from seeing their adverts for a number of years so I felt confident that they were a well-established company who had been in business for a while. Even though the company is based over 250 miles from me I felt comfortable using the company as Luke replied to my emails quickly and without ever having met him, I agreed for him to send his driver to my house to collect my lorry and drive it back to his depot. From start to finish the service was seamless and my horsebox sold within two weeks for the price we had agreed and I received my cheque the following week as per the contract. Would definitely recommend their service.”
Joanna Gibson

“I can’t recommend Luke and Central England Horseboxes highly enough. Making my first such purchase the peace of mind offered by the 3 month warranty was a significant factor over a private sale. From our first meeting Luke spent time going through several boxes and the pros and cons of each, and a test drive was immediately available. Having made a purchase the van was provided with a full years MOT and a new cambelt prior to delivery.

Unfortunately after a few weeks the gearbox synch failed. Significant expense was occurred opening up and repairing the gearbox, but Luke was true to his word with the warranty and every penny was covered without quibble. Moreover, as the gearbox was already opened Luke also agreed to replace the clutch which was showing wear – and all without fuss and quibble. When the work was completed the money exchanged hands that day. Luke was brilliant to deal with and the warranty made a huge difference. A private sale and I would have been out of pocket to the tune of £2000. Central England Horseboxes is the only place to go”

Graham Jeffrey, South Ayrshire, Scotland
“I would just like to say thank you for all of your help in both buying my horsebox and with the after sales warranty work. I am thoroughly enjoying my wagon, its a cracking little box & I would recommend you to anyone, Thank you once again.”
Mrs Lorna Johnson – Lancashire
“From the first phone call to Central England Horseboxes, through the visiting, choosing, testing/driving, buying to the last day of the 3 month warranty my experience of dealing with Luke has all been 100% positive. Nothing was too much trouble, I do not hesitate to highly recommend Central England Horseboxes.”
Mrs Jenny Hulme of North Birmingham
“Fantastic service, from pick up of my box to receiving the cheque. I can’t fault the service. Luke sold my horsebox fast, and efficiently. I highly recommend Central England Horseboxes.”
Mr Damian Blockley of Hinckley Leicestershire
“Thank you for the excellent service provided during and after the purchase of our horsebox. Your patience, response and efficiency is nothing short of outstanding! Definitely a business to be highly recommended”

“Thank you Luke for your advice and expertise. Both my daughter and I found you very knowledgeable and informative and we will certainly recommend you to others.”
Mrs Kate Workman – Staffordshire
“Central England sold my box and paid me out within 3 weeks! Brilliant! An easy hassle free process from start to finish.”
Mr Mike Depper – Devon
“I didn’t want to sell my horsebox myself and have strangers coming to my house so I called Luke. He explained the process and sent a driver to collect my box. I had a call 3 days later to tell me he had sold it before it even got advertised! V.happy!”
Mrs Carol Stewart – Worcestershire
“Great to see such a large selection of horseboxes all in one place, we didn’t have a clue what we were looking for so this was really helpful! We truly appreciate how patient and helpful you were and it gave us great peace of mind to get a warranty and know that the box has been safety inspected by professionals before we put our horses in it.”
Mrs Lucy Billings – Gloucestershire
“Luke spent 3 hours with us helping us find the right box and we are over the moon with it, thank you! We are so glad we found you and will pass your name on to others.”
Mrs Victoria Parsons – Cheshire
“We were sick of travelling up and down the country and wasting our time looking at horseboxes that looked great on photo’s but were not so great in the flesh. It was so refreshing to view a large selection of nice horseboxes! We couldn’t be more thrilled with our purchase and we’d like to express our sincere thanks for your help.”
Mrs Linda Burton – Cumbria
“Lovely selection of clean, tidy horseboxes to see and all with peace of mind warranties too! We have sent lots of our friends there.”
Mr Stephen Hadfield – Worcestershire
“I was just too busy with work and my horses to sell my horsebox so decided to take Central England Horseboxes up on their offer to sell it for me, I was glad I did too!”
Mrs Jayne Bennett – Somerset
“I’d never driven anything as large as a horsebox before so Luke took me for a few ‘slow’ laps around the industrial estate before we ventured out onto the road. I was soon whizzing along confidently! Thanks Luke.”
Mrs Mary Tideswell – Oxfordshire
“It was great to talk to somebody who knows their stuff and wanted to help us. You took the time to talk through our needs and our budget and used your expertise to help us make a decision that’s right for us. Our first few trips out with the new horsebox have proved very successful. Thanks again for all your help and advice.”
Mrs Jessica Dobson – North Wales
“I could definitely recommend Central England Horseboxes. They sold my horsebox in no time and returned me the money I asked for. Excellent service. Thank you.”
Mrs Sarah Bevan – Herefordshire
“I wasn’t comfortable driving a big 7.5 tonne lorry but a trailer was too small. After talking this through with Luke, he found me a 3.5 tonne lorry (which I didn’t realise you could drive on a normal drivers licence) which was perfect and I feel confident driving anywhere.”
Mr John Hidderley – Worcestershire
“I was moving to America for a year with work and needed to sell my horsebox to free up some funds. I felt more than comfortable leaving it at Central England’s sales yard as Luke kept in regular contact with me….. and he sold it within 2 months!! Perfect and hassle free!”
Miss Helen Lindsay – Oxfordshire
