If you need something big moved to somewhere new, chances are you can’t do it yourself. What sort of services should you call? The answer is dependent on the aspects of whatever it is you’re moving, so it can be difficult to tell without experience. Unless you’re a professional, the word “oversized” sounds pretty inexact. Here’s how to know if you need to start calling up some heavy hauling services.
Anything with unusual dimensions that might be difficult to transport on the normal roads will need to be entrusted to a heavy hauling service.
Generally, these objects tend to be both overweight and oversized. There are exact measurements that determine whether something is a heavy load or not, but these numbers vary by state, as well as between the U.S. and Canada. Anything that requires powerlines to be moved definitely counts as a heavy load. Some common heavy load materials include industrial equipment, military equipment, liquids like milk and gas, construction materials, and energy parts like turbines and transformers. These shipments require permits, making the process one that has to be planned rather thoroughly in advance. If you’re unsure whether or not you need heavy hauling services, give your local companies a call.
