Our Pilot Car Service
A pilot car driver works as a team with the person driving an over-sized load. Together, both drivers are in communication with each other to be sure all over-sized loads make it to their destinations safely.
The Belton Bros. pilot car has the duties and responsibilities of warning other drivers that there is an over-sized load on the road.
The pilot car will block traffic lanes when necessary.
Because the driver of the over-sized load and the pilot car are in constant contact, the pilot car will communicate when it is safe for the over-sized load to change lanes or proceed toward its destination.
Tunnels and bridges are potentially dangerous areas for an over-sized load. The pilot car will inform the driver if it is safe to continue. Turning and large curves can also be difficult for the heavy load hauler and it is up to the pilot car to ensure safety in these areas.
