Nebraska Escort Vehicles for Oversize Loads

Specific routes throughout Nebraska have restrictions on the times of movement allowed. For example, curfews must be respected if traveling within the Omaha or Lincoln city limits, especially on state highways or interstate roads. To avoid being caught out by the DOT's complex travel regulations in Nebraska, choose our pilot car service if you're looking for Nebraska travel. In addition, our partners on the directory are fully insured and experienced in escorting your load anywhere you need it without hiccups.

We'll ensure your oversized equipment or machinery transport is legal on all Nebraskan roads, and we can take care of other requirements, such as route planning and permit applications. You can use our escort car delivery drivers to accompany all heavy machinery types during the times specified on DOT permits.

Typically, shipments travel from half-hour before sunrise to half-hour after sunset every day of the week, although there are exceptions in major cities. Our pilot car transport team will arrange for a comprehensive pilot car service that will cover all your escort vehicle transport needs, whether traveling to Omaha or moving out of state. Contact us to learn more about Nebraska's pilot requirements and book your escort car services today.
