Pilot Car and Escort Vehicle Companies Near Me In Wisconsin

In Wisconsin, shipping any load measuring 95' to 110' in length requires one rear escort vehicle. Any freight with a width exceeding 12'6" requires one front escort on some roads. When the width measures 15' to 16' and we move on a non-divided highway, we will use one pilot car in front. If it moves on a two-lane highway, the pilot vehicle will be required in the rear. Any load with a width that exceeds 16' will need two pilot cars, one in front and another in the rear. Call now!
