Oversized & Wide Load Points to Consider
The exact dimensions and weight of the oversize shipping cargo to transport are a must. This will enable us to plan for the correct and most efficient equipment allowing a timely and orderly move according to industry specifications. Only then can we assure your complete satisfaction. Key points to consider when preparing an oversize shipping project are as follows:
Well documented legal limits for oversize load trucking are usually consistent across the United States. The legal load width and height is eight and a half feet. The legal length can range between forty-eight to fifty-three feet with a maximum usually standard weight of forty-six thousand pounds.
Finding out if your load is in the oversize hauling category you will need to zero in on the weight restrictions as applied to each axle. Sometimes the load can simply be shifted to avoid oversize hauling permits.
Width is the most common measurement that moves a load into the oversize category. When shipments exceed twelve feet, they will usually require pilot cars in the front and back of the flatbed to legally enforce regulations and transport the load safely.
The responsibility of obtaining permits fall within the carrier’s purview and they will not be able to secure these permits if a load can logically be broken down in either size or weight.
