Frequently Asked Questions

What is considered heavy hauling?

Heavy hauling refers to the transportation of oversized or overweight freight, which exceeds the standard legal size and weight limits for the roadways. This typically includes large machinery, construction equipment, industrial components, and other massive objects.

How is the cost for heavy hauling determined?

The cost is determined based on various factors, including the weight and dimensions of the cargo, distance traveled, route complexity, any required permits, and additional equipment or escort vehicles.

How long does it take to organize a heavy haul transport?

Preparation time can vary, but typically, you should allow several days to a week. This allows time for route planning, permit acquisition, and ensuring that the necessary equipment is available.

Are there restrictions on when heavy haul shipments can travel?

Yes, many jurisdictions have specific travel times for oversized loads, often limiting travel during peak hours or night-time to ensure safety and minimize traffic disruptions.
