Which Loads Require Escort Cars in Alabama?

Are you transporting an oversized load within, to, or from Alabama? Well, if it exceeds 85 feet in length, 12 feet in width, 15’6 feet in height, and 10 feet in overhang, it must be accompanied by an escort vehicle. The Alabama pilot car requirements vary depending on how much a load exceeds the legal load limits. For example, some loads just need a single pilot car, while some must be accompanied by pilot cars at the front and back. Working with a licensed pilot car company in Alabama like us is crucial because there are many rules to follow, and without the knowledge, you’re likely to land in trouble with the authorities. For example, construction equipment with buckets intact and blades follow special pilot car and escort vehicle requirements. However, these rules change depending on the route. That information can be found online, but without experience, you’re likely to miss it, leading to fines and delays.

How To Transport Oversized Loads That Require Pilot Vehicles in Alabama

Wide Load Shipping specializes in transporting oversized loads within Alabama and all 50 states. With over a decade of experience, we have helped many clients transport oversized loads that were escorted by pilot cars and delivered safely. We understand that oversized loads crossing different states must adhere to rules in all those states. Sometimes, a load might require a single pilot car in one state and more than one in another. In addition, a load might be oversized in one state and not oversized in another. Not working with a professional is a recipe for failure because you might make it through one state and then get stuck in another if you don’t meet their requirements.
