Thank you so much James, the cable arrived first thing this morning
Expectations exceeded (once again)
One of the reasons we purchased 'new' was because borrowing floats usually ended with damage costing more than the hireage fee! We wanted a situation where any damage was easily fixed, with genuine parts, in a timely fashion and wasn't just a total waste of money!
The Ifor Williams team, on hearing of the broken cable, immediately despatched a replacement, so in less than 24 hours we were ready to roll again. I think we'll purchase another cable to keep in our tool box, just in case we forget to disconnect it again
Thank you so much for making floating our horses an enjoyable experience. I thoroughly recommend purchasing an Ifor Williams for peace of mind equine transport. Anne D.
thanks for every thing. I seldom buy sight unseen but on this occasion felt comfortable with it and I am happy with the product, It towed home really nice. I really appreciate the no fuss way the sale and purchase occurred, thank you. Could you confirm the ramps will be sufficient strength for a 2.7 ton tractor Cheers graeme
Its arrived. Yay!!!!
And I just want to say a big THANK YOU!!!!
Its absolutely perfect.
I used it this morning and it is awesome!
I am very impressed with these floats. It’s the little details that matter, and the Ifor Williams is stacked with little features that make floating easier and far safer.
These are a very well designed float!!!!!!!
I am so happy.
Thanks you heaps for everything and also Alan, who I was stalking daily for updates on delivery.
I hired a float yesterday for my lesson and really, I wish I hadn’t.
It was quite small for my big boy. It had a ramp and the top part above the ramp opened up.
I floated to the lesson OK but when I came home, I had the top part above the ramp closed down.
When I came home, one of the handles to open it had completely locked up and I couldn’t get it open and I couldn’t get my horse out.
I actually considered having to cut my horse out of the float. It was very very frightening.
It took us 45 mins to get it open, but finally, with CRC and multigrips, we managed to turn it. It gave me such a fright that I couldn’t use it today.
Thank god the Ifor Williams has arrived and I know that I will never have an issue like that with this float.
Thank you James !!!!
I will be in touch when its time to upgrade.
Have a great day!
I bought an Ifor Williams HB511 from Southern Trailers in August. I am just writing to say how thrilled I am with my new float. On its first outing I used the float to help transport a very green and opinionated horse for a friend. We put the front ramp down and the mare, who had never successfully floated before, just walked calmly through for a couple of circuits and once she saw there was nothing to fear about being inside the float and no need to pull back when she could just walk on out the front without any stress she was a dream to load! My friend was so impressed with the Ifor Williams front ramp system she said "I hope you paid a million bucks for that float because that is what it is worth!".
The next customer was my own mare. Having been a bit funny about loading lately i was relieved when she too loaded beautifully into the Ifor Williams (again thanks to the front ramp system). But the real breakthrough was the way she travelled in it. I have always needed to travel my mare with a 3/4 bar in the past in my old Thoroughbred because if she couldn't spread her hind legs then she fell over. This meant that I could only ever travel her by herself in the Thoroughbred as the 3/4 bar didn't leave enough room for another horse to travel alongside her. But in my new 511 Ifor Williams the float is wide enough and stable enough so that she no longer scrambles at all. She travels beautifully in it and we can finally float her with another pony which makes life so much easier.
I am so happy with the float - everything about it is functional and well-considered. If you ever need a testimonial I would be happy to provide one.

Bronwyn and I just wanted to write and say thank you for all your help while purchasing the float
We appreciate all the efforts in presenting this in great order and we are very happy with it.
I am sure Bronwyn will be a great advocate for the ifor Williams floats
We are going to a big showjumping event with the float next week, just wondered if you have any brochures you could send me and we can have them on display for you.
I love my float by the way! I was talking to my farrier (John Arthur) yesterday and he has one also and he just raved about it
If you have any brochures or pamphlets you can send them to the below address.

I thought I should let you know how pleased we are with the float. We took it for its first outing on Sunday and I was really pleased with the way it towed with a horse in it - very steady and stable ( unlike the JR one which seemed to sway the car around a bit, and it was supposed to be good for towing). Also we were very impressed with the amount of room in it, even with our long horse in - much more than we had anticipated. Another thing that I liked (which I hadn't noticed before), was the matting. The ribbing in the main mat is very narrow and deep which should give the horses a lot of grip, especially compared to other non-slip mats. All round, many design features that make it an excellent float, and you have another very satisfied customer.
Took the float our for the first time today and went out to Waitoki. Absolutely delighted and horse travelled well hardly knew I was towing a float. Sold my old float for $5750 so I am happy as my new float is such good value. You now have a convert and will spread the word
Kind regards Anita Kenny
I finally got to take my lovely new float out today and it was so awesome to tow when loaded. I even had to do some heavy braking - stupid road works - and it was so steady and I didn't even hear or feel the horse move.
Hi James, it's Kirsten who picked up the float this avo. Just wanted to let you know we had a try getting my horse on the float when we got it home. She walked on the easiest she ever has, on any float or truck. Pretty stoked, thanks heaps. :)
Thank you for that.
I’m absolutely thrilled with my float, it is going well, and Chrissy (horse) loves it too! From always having a wee argument to get her on other floats, after 3 sessions of moving on and off, she is now walking on all by herself – this has never happened before!
Hi James and Christine
Just thought I'd let you know that the 511 is now well and truely part of the family. Mary Horse did sniff it for a second or two before loading herself on, but soon changed the 'new' smell to 'poo' smell, so she is very happy with it.
'twas a lovely experience purchasing a quality product from people who believe in it.
Just thought I would give you some feedback – so far. I finally got around to loading my belligerent Clydie X on yesterday. It was great to be able to open the partition so much when he loaded, I found the rear bar easy and quick to attach even though it is still unfamiliar and then I was amazed at how much room he had either side so it is substantially wider than my Fieldline. The higher front bar position is not too high for him, as my friend thought it might be, Sam was a little confused when I asked him to walk forwards but it was no problem and I found the ramp was a nice width even when he was unsure and rushed a bit. All in all a successful day so i will try with both on Wednesday weather permitting.
I couldn’t remember where the pin for the jockey wheel goes so I will need to figure that out before I take it somewhere.
I think I would like to be able to tie both at the rear of the float - one on each side - so can you tell me what I need for this.
Thank you, i feel so Blessed with our New Ifor William Trailer. It handles high Loads, high Speed and i can't even feel that it is on the Back of our Transporter.
