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.

FAQ

What is the maximum width of a load that can be transported?

Generally, the maximum legal load width is 8.5 feet, which is based on the standard width of highway lanes - Interstate and major highways are typically 12 feet. However, the definition and measure of length may vary from state to state.

What is considered an oversized load?

A consignment exceeding 8 ft 6 inches wide, 13 ft 6 inches high, and that is more than 48-53 ft in length constitutes an oversized load. Regulations differ from state to state, especially those with older and narrower roads.

Can oversize loads travel on weekends?

The majority of states don’t allow oversized trucks to drive on weekends or during holidays. Oversized loads usually have to be off the road by noon the day before the holiday begins. We always adhere to specific state regulations.

What are pilot cars, and when are they required?

Pilot cars escort trucks pulling over-dimensional loads. Equipped with lights and signs, they warn other vehicles of the load and keep our drivers informed of road and traffic conditions. In some states, they prevent drivers from overtaking our carriers.

When Are Permits For Oversized Load Required?

We organize permits for loads that exceed: 

  • 8 ½ ft wide
  • 12 ½ ft tall
  • 65 ft total length
  • 80,000-pound gross vehicle weight
  • 34,000-pound tandem axle weight 
  • 20,000-pound single axle weight
