Is My Load Oversize and Can You Ship It?

Travel Restrictions for Oversize Load Transport
Certain states may have hourly restrictions for oversize load transport, which is why it’s imperative to work with a company that has the necessary experience and knowledge. For instance, if an over-width load is wider than 12ft, it may have extra restrictions, such as travel time restrictions. These types of oversize loads often require pilot cars or escort vehicles as well. If your load is more than sixteen feet wide, it generally falls into the super load category, which requires even more regulations for safety.
