Poquoson, Virginia - Pilot Car Service search results Premier Listings

When a trucking company has an oversized load (too heavy or too wide), a pilot car service is employed. These folks help keep not only the haul safe, but also keep all other drivers on the road aware of the cargo for their own safety. Pilot cars can also be employed to escort important vehicles, like those of a high government official. The escorted car or truck will often have signs indicating that it is special in some way. If the pilot is leading a motorcade, the vehicle in question will most likely have flags indicating who they are and their nationality. For example, presidential motorcades will have the American flag on the cars. Orange warning flags and banners indicating size, like wide load, will be present on oversized equipment being transported, mainly so they can be more visible to other automobiles. With truck loads, it is up to the pilot to be aware of these flags and make sure they remain attached to the trailer, pole, or tow since the driver cannot seem them. Pilots are usually accompanied with CB radios so there is always a constant line of communication between the vehicles and dispatch service. This helps both drivers as one can notify the other of any dangers up ahead, to the side, or behind each other. The radios also allow the dispatch to be updated on travel times, fuel stops, rest stops, and potential accidents that may occur. The radio allows the pilot to be the eyes and ears for the trucker and dispatch in almost any situation.

If you are in need of a pilot car service, you will find that there are many different companies offering pilot vehicle transportation. For those that need helping hauling their oversize load, you will want to make sure you hire a trustworthy auto pilot company. Some automobile companies that have escort services may only work with commercial truckers, while others will also work no matter what the situation is. If you need to make a delivery, you should first take into consideration how far your transportation needs are. You will need to ask the automobile escort service if they only travel across the state, or if they have the means to travel cross country. Their primary location may also make a difference. You will want to find a transportation service locally to you to keep the overall price lower. Haulers are able to carry heavy loads across highways, but you will want other travelers to be safe on the road as well. Having the right pilot car service is a great way to let others know that there is a large cargo truck with an oversize load. Before hiring a company, you may want to ask how old their vehicles are that they use, and see if they are insured and are generally good in quality. The type of systems each company uses may vary as well. One pilot car service may be able to do the job themselves, while others will need to use other companies to complete the job. If you would rather stick with one company for the whole transport, you will want to ask if they are capable of doing this for you.
