Providing The Best Pilot Cars in Georgia

Every state has laws that dictate how large a load can be before it requires a pilot car. If you're new to long-haul oversized transport, keeping track of all the different rules that apply to oversized load shipping can be hard. Our escort car company can make your job easier by coordinating your pilot car transport needs and ensuring your delivery is compliant. We know the rules for each state, including Georgia. We ensure all our pilot and escort vehicles are ready to move your oversized load in Georgia the right way.

Our escort car delivery has a seasoned driver who will ensure your shipment travels safely and legally through Georgia. In Georgia, your pilot vehicle must be a pickup or auto with appropriately mounted signs. In addition, pickups or autos used as pilot vehicle transport must be equipped with suitable amber roof-mounted lighting. The amber lights need a permit from Georgia's Department of Public Safety that can't be neglected. Luckily, when you choose Heavy Haulers escort vehicles, we ensure all necessary permits are in place before the journey starts. Call now!
