    I am looking for someone that has used this service and were happy with them. My trophy's are ready and will be shipping by SBS Logistics to San Francisco. Two crates about 1500 lbs. I need them cleared and trucked to Salt Lake City, Utah. Thanks for your help.

    Hagar, did SBS not suggest someone at this end for you to use?

    Brickburn,
    I have not officially signed with SBS yet. They are the service that Black Bear our Taxidermist uses and gave a good quote. I was hoping to find someone on the forum that has used a service from San Francisco to a western state that they had good luck with. Lori @ Travel Express suggested a service but they only work out of Seattle. I called them and they suggested I find one out of San Francisco as it would be less expensive. Thanks for your reply.

    Hagar,

    I used Hunter International Brokerage Services Inc. this past December.
    They are also based in the Bay Area.
    I worked with a gal in their office named Zandra. She was very helpful in answering all of my (many) questions.
    They cleared my crates and arranged to truck them forward to me in Arizona.
    I would recommend them without hesitation.
    Here is a link to their website: | Hunter International Brokerage Services, Inc.
    Here is their Phone # (925) 417-5270

    Here is a link to my review here on AH: Reviews of Hunter International

    Good luck,
    Ty

    Hagar,

    I used Hunter's International, they're based in the bay area, one east side of the bay in Pleasanton to be exact. They coordinated air shipping from Jo'burg with Safari Air Cargo Systems. All they do are hunting trophies. I was quite pleased with them. If you call them, ask to speak to Maria. She is very patient and will answer all your questions. I'm sure they can arrange for trucking to SLC. I opted to pick up my trophies at LAX, but could have had them trucked to Phoenix. Website is below.

    Well there you have it Hagar, Thomas beat me to it. Just to add to his comments, I also worked with Zandra for handling details and second Thomas' experience.

    Another vote for Hunter International, Zandra is getting it all ready to be delivered late this week or early next for me. Service and communications are very good.
