What is the purpose of a Pilot Car?

Most likely you have seen pilot cars…Pickup trucks, SUVs or cars driving in front of or behind a tractor-trailer hauling a wide, over-length, or overweight load.

These are called pilot cars or escort vehicles, and the people who drive them are trained professionals who specialize in this type of driving. You may have thought that the pilot car is part of the trucking company, but the pilot car driver is generally someone who is interdependently contracted to escort the load through a certain state or states.

A pilot car driver works in conjunction with the driver of an oversize load to make sure the truck reaches its destination safely. The pilot driver travels in front of or in back of the truck in a separate vehicle, warning the public if there are traffic changes or obstacles due to the truckload. They also warn the truck if there is anything up ahead that can interfere with its safe passage.

An escort car driver ensures that everything from switching lanes to crossing bridges is safe for the heavy haul driver, his load and everyone else on the road.

An escort car also helps to ensure that the driver of an oversize load doesn’t accidentally violate traffic laws or cause an accident, while moving the over dimensional load.

OUR EXPERTISE:

TESTIMONIALS:

As an oversize boat hauler I have dealt with numerous pilot car services all across the country and my only call now is always to Sean with Coastal Lights. He is, by far, the best I have ever encountered for all aspects of oversize transport. Whether he is personally behind the wheel guiding the way or just sending me the most efficient route to use at no charge, I am continually impressed with his knowledge and dedication to providing top notch service every time.

Sean with Coastal Lights constantly impresses me with his route and permitting knowledge, willingness to lend a hand and attention to detail. He keeps me and my cargo safe while on the road, manages any additional escorts that may be required and is always on time.
