Where do i start!
We currently have two ranges of "Can-Van" The Standard Spec horsebox which all the spec is further down this page..... also the Part conversion (click here for the link to go to the part conversion page)
Both suitable to carry upto 16.2hh horses ( AS PICTURED)
All are based on 3.5 tonne Renault Master or Vauxhall movano chassis
Before ANY conversion is started all the vans are fully inspected before purchased and given an engine compression test to ensure that the engine is of a good standard, they are then serviced (all fluids and filters).The cam belt KIT is done within the "Standard Spec" price.
Before the vehicle is handed over to the new owner a 12 months m.o.t is supplied, we also ensure that our visual safety report is available upon collection of the vehicle.
The PART CONVERSIONS are available really to allow you to get out and about at an affordable cost. They start at a VERY basic level which may not be to everyone’s liking but it does give the chance for some people to at least have good, safe reliable transport which is yours and your an independent soul!
Our theory behind the Part conversion is …… if your happy with the basic level great, another happy customer. BUT the part conversions allow you to add to the spec at a later date as and when funds dictate.
If you want to have as much carrying capacity as possible this is also the option for you.
We always suggest to go as new on the chassis as possible ( for resale and reliability) so for instance if you had £10,500.00 pounds to spend you could either have a fully finished, painted Standard Spec horsebox This would be on a year 2002/2003 in any colour that you like, logos, chrome wheel trims etc….
You could say to yourself, no I’m going on a newer chassis and have a Part conversion on a newer Facelift chassis around a 2005/2006 and add to it next year if you wanted.
The option is yours, we can do as little or as much as you require and working to a budget that you want to keep to!

Hopefully you can see the height of horse isn't the problem, what you will have to be careful of is the weight. The van fully converted to our standard spec weighs approx 2200kg which enables you to carry approximately 1300kg If you need more Payload (carrying capacity) this is achievable by having less fittings in the grooms area i.e. the Part conversion some have gone to new homes with 1370 kgs available.
