Heavy Haul

John Bunning Transfer Co., Inc. specializes in moving heavy freight (over-dimensional, over-weight, and over-limit).

John Bunning Transfer Co., Inc. has an entire department that is experienced and dedicated to obtaining special permits, routing and escorts for over-legal freight.  Our company is not only experienced in loading and unloading your over-legal freight, but also understands the problems every mile of the route and implementing safety measures to successfully deal with any problems that may arise.  In addition, we have the ability to determine which routes will be the best ones to take based on many factors including local, state, and federal regulations, and our heavy haul experience along various routes.

John Bunning Transfer Co., Inc.'s experience with heavy haul trucking gives us the confidence needed to determine best routing for transporting over-legal loads.  We transport a variety of over-legal freight ranging from drilling components, compressors, and various types of loaders. We've hauled it all.  If it's over-legal we've moved it.

Factors That Can Determine An Over Legal Load

There are many factors that can determine if freight is Over-Sized (Super Load) that will need special handling.  Usually, the factors include the following:

  • Loaded height that exceeds state or provincial guidelines - generally over 13'6" (4.11 meters).
  • Loaded width that exceeds 8'6" (2.59 meters).
  • Overall loaded, including truck and trailer, length exceeds 72' (22 meters).
  • Overall weight, including load and transport equipment, exceeds 80,000 lbs. (36,250 kilograms).
  • Other factors may also put your load into a non-legal load.

Our team would be more than happy to help answer any questions you may have about your over-legal loads.  Please E-Mail us, or give us a call at 1-800-443-2753 and ask for Rob Norton or Derek Dudinsky.
