Shipping a wide load across the country is not an easy task, especially if you don’t have the right vehicles. Big Road Services low boys’ can help you get your load delivered in a safe and timely manner, regardless of its size, shape, and height.

What is a wide load?

Any load that exceeds the legal dimensions allowed by state or county regulations is called a wide load. Generally, that means a maximum legal load is 8.5 feet for both height and width, and anything over that is considered an oversize load.


When it comes to shipping over-dimensional loads such as bulldozers, tractors, combines, cranes, steel beams, and others, using a flatbed is your best choice. Big Road Services knows the importance of understanding the exact weight and dimensions of your shipment in order to plan for the exact type of equipment we will need to handle your cargo. If you need a flatbed, we’ve got you!

What is a flatbed?

A flatbed is a large truck with a flat body that has no sides or roof around the bed. Using a flatbed allows us to transport heavy loads that won’t be compromised in bad weather or on rough roads. Since flatbeds are so versatile, they are one of the most used types of trucks in the industry.
