A knacker, knackerman or knacker man, is a job title used for the centuries-old trade of persons responsible for the removal of animal carcasses. In recent times the reputation and professionalism of this trade has improved considerably and they are now more commonly referred to as fallen stock collectors. The Equine end of life service only use registered licensed Collectors.
The Equine End of Life Service has been working with our established national network of collectors within the industry for over 10 years.
Our aim is to provide a cost effective end of life collection service for horse owners, utilising this network covering the majority of post code areas within the UK.
Above all our collectors are experienced and professional. They know it is essential that the horse or pony must be dealt with humanely and sensitively. Collectors will act in a respectful way, as best they can, at all times.
Collectors registered with the Equine End of Life Service are all APHA and ABP approved. Consequently our collectors adhere to the code of practice stipulated by the Equine end of Life Service.
