UK-based rocking horse manufacturer Classic Rocking Horses has just completed a third international delivery using Anglo Pacific.  Having already shipped precious equine cargo to Canada and Australia, Anglo safely delivered a dappled-grey horse called ‘Sabre’ to New Zealand – much to the delight of his new owner.  

Describing Sabre as, “the most beautiful rocking horse I have ever seen”, client Alison - based in Tauranga on the North Island - was especially pleased with the international removal service provided by Anglo Pacific. 

“Sabre arrived in Tauranga a few weeks ago and the shipping agents were fantastic helping me sort out the necessary paperwork and paying the customs duty here in New Zealand,” said Alison.  “The two delivery guys were terrific; they un-crated him on the truck and then carried him up to the front door and inside the house, placing him in the exact spot my husband and I had agreed upon after much discussion.  They then proceeded to finish the unwrapping, got me to check him over and sign him off, then Sabre was officially mine." 

With prices ranging from 2,300 to 3,500 pounds for a Dappled Grey Classic, depending on the size, these stunning handcrafted works of art must be handled with great care.

Jean Tildesley, founder of Classic Rocking Horses, alongside husband Brian, said, “Anglo Pacific’s Fine Art packing service suits our business.  They pack and crate carefully, clear customs at each end, and unpack and clear away the crate - a bonus compared with many carriers who will deliver kerbside only.  I can also get a definite quote very quickly, which is useful in closing a sale.”

Classic Rocking Horses has been restoring antique horses and making new ones for over 25 years.  In that time they have sent them all over the world from Norway to the Netherlands and Singapore to Shanghai, although most customers naturally tend to be UK-based.  Mass production isn’t ever going to be an aim, just horses of the very highest quality.
