Trustworthy Pilot Cars for Delivery in Hawaii

Regarding escort vehicle transport in Hawaii, we certainly know the state requirements. Let us save you time, energy, and hassle by providing pilot vehicle services you can trust to meet Hawaii's oversized transport regulations. Unlike many states in the U.S., Hawaii does not require a pilot car escort certification to be held by the pilot car driver. However, as a reputable pilot car services provider, we ensure all of our escort car delivery drivers are licensed, insured, and experienced to guarantee the safest delivery.

Travel restrictions apply in Hawaii, just like in many other locations throughout the U.S. Every vehicle or delivery more than 12' wide requires an escort car delivery service to accompany it. If you need escort car transport, contact our specialists to learn more. When you book Heavy Haulers pilot vehicle services, we'll ensure that all the necessary permits are applied to your oversized load delivery and that your escort vehicle is up to code.
