Your Integrity Pilot Car Services’ escort will confirm road conditions and time of movement, and if needed, they will check weekend and holiday travel. All drivers with Integrity Pilot Car Services are certified and equipped with any items needed for a high pole haul such as flashing lights, safety equipment, cones and safety wear. We can also do a route survey, if required or needed for the trip.

What are High Pole loads?

IMG_20170314_111321812When transporting high, oversized, over dimensional loads, trucking companies are required to contract with a professional, certified pilot car company. Because of the height of these loads, the pilot car escort will have a high pole on the front, as seen above, so that the height of the load is cleared for bridges, tunnels and other overhead obstacles. It ensures that the load height is safe to go through those areas.

The pole is telescopic, so it can be raised or lowered based on the height needed to clear the area. The pole can be used if traveling through an area with:

  • Bridges
  • Tunnels
  • Traffic signals
  • Power lines
  • Other overhead impediments

For the majority of states, the high pole escort car is required if the height of the load is more than 17 feet. Making sure you know the requirements for your load is very important for the safety of the load and the public, and Integrity Pilot Car Services has the experience and expertise to know the best way for your load to make it safely and promptly to its destination.
