Appraisals & Museum Services
The History of Hansen Wheel & Wagon Shop
Hansen Wheel and Wagon Shop has been in the business of authentic horse-drawn vehicle construction and restoration since 1978. Our experience with vehicle restoration, historical data and driving horses has equipped us with the working knowledge to thoroughly understand the field of horse-drawn vehicles.
Our consulting services include appraisals of individual horse-drawn vehicles for private collectors, as well as evaluations of museum collections, pertaining to overall condition, historic integrity, safety issues and recommendations for the preservation of the collection.
