As a leading heavy haul trucking company, we are experienced in transporting heavy haul loads. Our multiple-axle trailers and dual-lane trailers are designed for oversize shipping. We also provide dolly systems and side kits to make the job easier. Our heavy haul carriers include:
A versatile heavy haul truck option for hauling oversized loads, with a flat deck and no sides or roof.
A step up from a traditional flatbed, with one or two drops in the deck to accommodate a taller heavy haul load.
A specialized trailer with a flexible, tarp-enclosed roof that can be opened and closed for easy loading and unloading.
Best for transporting extremely heavy machinery and heavy haul equipment with a low center of gravity, these trailers sit very low to the ground.
A variation on the lowboy design, with a second drop in the middle of the trailer for added height capacity.
Also known as detachable goosenecks, these trailers allow for easier loading and unloading of heavy and oversize cargo.

Man, was I in a bind last month. I am a sales person for a packaged food company and I had to receive about 150 cases of product, divvy it all up, and then ship it out to 70 different locations. I work from home and there was no way I was going to run this operation out of my 1 bedroom apartment. I was in a panic until I looked up some information and called Cowtown Express. They were so nice and agreed to receive the product, divide it up, and ship it out for me. Even though this kind of job is a little different than what they normally do, they were happy to figure out a way to get it done for me. Their labor costs were very reasonable and the whole thing got done with a lot less stress and hassle than I had expected.
We have used Cowtown Express several times to move pallets between our warehouses in Dallas and Fort Worth. They have always delivered on-time and as expected. We are very pleased and wholeheartedly recommend their services.

Many factors influence the heavy haul transport freight rates. These include; mileage, the type of trailer you need, the height and weight of your freight, the time of year, fuel surcharges, and permits. It’s best to contact us with your requirements, so we can provide an accurate quote.
In Texas, the maximum width of a heavy haul trucking load you can haul is limited to 8 feet, 6 inches wide. Anything above that requires a special transport permit, which can be arranged by Cowtown Express’s expert logistics management team.
The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles has established size and weight limits for vehicles transporting loads. Loads exceeding these parameters are issued with an overweight cargo permit valid for five days. Vehicles under 10’ wide or 100’ long can operate 24/7, but those over may only travel between 30 minutes before sunrise and 30 minutes after sunset.
A load that is 80,000 pounds or heavier occupies a height of 13.6 feet; a length of 48 to 53 feet is considered a heavy haul. At Cowtown Express, we offer a variety of solutions from RGN to step deck and Conestoga heavy haul trailers to transport heavy freight.
