What Qualifies as Oversize Loads – What You Should Know!

Are you looking to transport large shipment across the country? If yes, then you should educate yourself about oversize loads and choose a professional trucking company that specializes in transporting and hauling oversized loads.

In the US, any truck tractor and its attached trailers that exceed beyond set dimensions are considered to be an oversize load. So what parameters qualify for oversize loads?

  • Minimum loaded dimensions for oversize loads are 13’6” in height, 8’6” in width and 80’ length.
  • The load should be non-reducible i.e. should not able to be reduced further to legal size.
  • These loads can include large equipment, manufactured homes, cranes, board, construction tractors, control rooms, boilers, transformers etc.
  • Both size and weight of oversize loads are defined and regulated by an individual state. Many states adopt the Federal Bridge Formula to regulate the legal weight on axles.

Important: The transporter or hauler should obtain a permit for oversize loads before using state highways to ensure that the equipment is not traveling through unsafe zones. These include construction sites and bridges that are not equipped to carry more than 80,000 pounds in weight. This also ensures that overpasses with low heights are avoided by the haulers.
