Our Premium Trucking Services

Our experience, expertise and equipment enable us to remove the burden of transporting your heavy equipment from your shoulders. Our fleet includes a wide assortment of trucks and trailers to accommodate loads of all heights, weights and configurations. We also have a comprehensive understanding of the variables that will impact your move including:

  • Legal Limits for Flatbed Loads: While the limits regarding the allowable weight, height, width and length of loads are relatively consistent throughout the region, there may be specific restrictions in some states. Our extensive knowledge of the "rules of the road" that apply to oversized loads enables us to anticipate and avoid these areas, which can prevent costly delays during transport.
  • Obtaining Permits: We understand when there is a need for a permit when hauling oversized items — typically, you cannot get a permit if it is possible to break a load down in weight or size. We're also familiar with the process of acquiring licenses, which can save you the time and hassle of doing it yourself.
  • Rules for Using Escort Drivers: Many states have laws that require the services of escort or "pilot" drivers to travel ahead to look for potential obstructions and also to alert other drivers of the presence of the oversized load. We'll ensure that your shipment will meet all legal requirements in this area.
  • Route Planning: The efficient planning of the trip will make it as smooth and seamless as possible. With our knowledge of the region, we can take into account factors such as road conditions, weather and traffic, and even details such as the time of day when oversized loads may travel through specific areas.

Differences Between Oversize and Wide Loads

Although wide loads are oversized by definition, not all oversize loads can be classified as wide loads. When an oversize transport company talks about oversized loads, it means any freight that exceeds the legal limits in terms of dimensions or weight.

Wide loads refer specifically to oversized cargo that is wider than the legal highway limit of 8.5 feet. On the other hand, oversized loads may be referring to items that fit on the flatbed without hanging over the sides, but is taller than the standard limit.

In either case, wide loads and oversized loads require special permitting. They also call for specialized expertise including pre-route planning and the presence of pilot cars to help ensure safety on the highway.
