Our builds in the wild

All sorts of horses

We absolutely LOVE our new Hobson Horsecoach!!!  Shaun and the team were amazing to work with, allowing and encouraging us to be involved in every step of the build. 

With a young family and transporting a range of different horses (young, old, big, small) it was important that our new truck was practical, spacious, adjustable, affordable and user friendly.  It is safe to say that our expectations have been exceeded on all of the above. The workmanship is of the highest standard and the finish is impeccable. 

It was an exciting and fun process to be involved in, and I would not hesitate to recommend Hobson to anyone considering a new build!

Happy Customers

Approximately 12 months ago we decided to undertake a new truck build with Shaun at Hobson’s Horsecoaches based in Paihatua near Palmerston North. We live in Cambridge.

We had our own interior plan and ideas for the build of our 3 horse truck with a pushout side. Without exception, the discussions regarding our plan and the build would easily be possible with Shaun.

Everything was in place with our deposit paid ready to start 1st July 2019 with an expected completion date 30th October 2019. Throughout the entire build everything for us was seamless. Regular contact regarding minor details prior to including them and once in place was great.

Every Friday afternoon we waited with anticipation the progress photos to be sent through. These gave us an insight into how everything with our plan and build was coming together. Every week there was excitement of the completion of the build and anticipation of what lay ahead of us enjoying our dream truck/coach build.

We made a couple of site visits during the build to physically see what was coming together so well for us. Shaun’s attention to detail was amazing. All staff at Hobson’s were helpful with their input as well.

Then 2 weeks ahead of schedule on the 18th October our build was complete. Immaculate to the finest detail. There were quite a few instructions regarding the functionality of all the workings within. All sorted and on the road we went.

We have been using our truck for 2 1/2 months now everything is perfect. We thoroughly recommend Hobson’s for a coach build.
