How to Transport A Wide Load with Heavy Haulers

Transportation of over-dimensional cargo is critical, and there are many rules and regulations involved in their shipments. In most cases, to carry wide loads you need to obtain special permits and pilot cars which means additional costs for delivery on the roadways. The special permits must be obtained from the department of transportation (DOT) or a permit company from each state before the driver loads the over-width equipment for transport.

When in need of knowing the arrival date and time of the wide load, the driver must always abide by the rules set by the department of transportation. It is vital to understand that truck drivers from oversized loads are limited to hours in a day they are supposed to drive, must stop at each station in each state for verification of paperwork and are only allowed to transport the over-dimensional loads only on roads approved by the DOT. Each country and state have various regulations and different variations concerning legal dimensions and weight and therefore essential to keep that in mind.

When it comes to transportation of wide loads, it does not have to weigh you down. Heavy haulers are experts. We have the right equipment, specialized drivers with experience in transportation of over-dimensional loads and we have all the legal permits needed for shipment of your load. We always keep our promise and ensure your freight is delivered to its destination safely and securely with no damages. For qualified and experienced wide load shipping, call us now! (800) 908-6206
