New Jersey Escort Vehicle Regulations

Our Heavy Haulers pilot drivers will supply you with an escort vehicle suitable for accompanying oversized loads. New Jersey has escort car requirements for oversized loads traveling on 2-lane and four-or-more-lane highways. However, the number of escort vehicles required varies based on dimensions and type of road traveled. At a minimum, if the shipment exceeds 14' wide, 100' length, and 14' height, it will require at least one pilot. With this in mind, you might find it troublesome to identify which routes are safe for your delivery and how many escort vehicles you need, particularly if you're unfamiliar with New Jersey roads.

Our escort car service team knows which rules apply to each route and won't hesitate to provide you with a reliable escort to facilitate a smooth delivery journey. In addition to route restrictions, oversized permits also determine appropriate movement times. You may find a permit restricts travel during the week, and Saturday travel may only be permitted up until noon. However, New Jersey offers some notable exceptions for heavy vehicles only.
