Overlength Load Trucking Services You Can Rely On

Most major highways and roads have standard weight and size limits for any trailers that travel through them. Authorities set maximum length limits mainly to protect human life and public property. If you have a load longer than the set limit, it’s considered overlength and must be accompanied by permits. 

How to Know if Your Load Is Overlength

Load size restrictions vary from one state to another based on the dimensions of the existing roads. Shipments that may fall under the overlength category include:

  • Construction Equipment
  • Farm Equipment
  • Preassembled homes
  • Manufacturing Equipment e.g. conveyors
  • Building Materials, e.g., beams
  • Wind Turbines

Overlength Load Shipping Requirements

Different states have varying restrictions and requirements for overlength load shipping, but you will need the following in most cases.

  • Safety Equipment

Most states require overlength load shipping companies to have flags and oversize load banners to warn other drivers. You should place the banners at the front and back of the trailer.

  • Permit for Overlength Loads

A trailer shipping overlength load will require overlength permits. Not adhering to permit requirements could lead to hefty fines.

  • Escort Vehicles for Overlength Loads

Depending on the size of a load, some states require two pilot cars to surround the overlength load at the front and back to alert other drivers.

  • Travel Times

Some region restricts overlength load trackers to traveling at particular times like at night, during weekends, or holidays to ensure public safety and limit traffic.

Heavy Haul Trucking Services FAQ

The characteristics of heavy haul vary depending on the state. Any shipment over 102 inches of a typical flatbed trailer is considered heavy hauling and requires a permit.

Are there any weight or size limitations for heavy haul trucking?

Typically, weight limitations are determined on a per-axle premise. While a heavy haul trucking load may not surpass the full weight limit, it may surpass the per-axle limitation. Loads in the ‘oversize’ category are over 8.5 feet wide. Loads exceeding 12 feet wide may require one or two pilot vehicles in the front and back of the truck.
