For some cargo and vehicle transports special oversized and wide-load permitting will be required before hitting the road. While each state varies, generally anything wider than 8’6” is considered a wide-load and subject to special permitting. Height, length, and weight of the freight, equipment, or vehicles to be shipped are also regulated by each state.
Shipping and oversized or wide-load is a specialized service requiring federal and state-by-state regulatory knowledge. Transporting of field machinery, prefabricated/mobile homes, wind blades, steel beams, heavy construction equipment, industrial service units, and more requires experience and know-how to safely and legally transport.
Oversized and Wide-Load Permit Shipping is complicated:
What permits are required?
Are pilot vehicles necessary?
Does scheduling need to be managed to meet sundown to sunrise road restrictions?
What special markings and/or lights are required for transport?
What routes are available to transport an oversized load?
