Our Pilot Car Meet Oklahoma's DOT Laws

As a licensed and leading oversized equipment carrier in Oklahoma, we provide pilot car services with high adherence to the state's DOT requirements. Heavy Haulers, Oklahoma has pilot car professionals who know and understand the state regulations, such as time restrictions that dictate that piloted heavy-freight transportation can only take place from ½ an hour to sunrise up to about ½ an hour to sunset. Depending on the estimated transport distance, we will also retrieve a 3- or 5-day transport permit to ensure the load is legally transported and escorted.

Furthermore, they understand the loads and cargo that warrant deploying escort vehicles. For instance, we will deploy a single lead car for any load over 80 ft. Any freight over 100 ft. will require two escort vehicles, one in the front and another in the rear. When shipping any loads with a width exceeding 12 ft. on a 4-lane road, we will arrange for a single front or rear escort, per state laws. Our pilot cars are always equipped with height-detection devices when shipping loads with heights exceeding 15 ft., 9 in. Call for a free shipping estimate!
