Need a trucking company that provides services in oversize loads?

Oversize loads require special attention, care, and experience. Watsontown Trucking Company, WTC, has decades of experience handling oversize loads of all shapes and sizes. Our fleet reflects that and includes flatbed, step deck, drop deck and high sided open top trailers.

Permits for Oversize Loads

Many people don’t consider the permits required for oversize loads. However, if freight is overweight, over-height, or over-dimensional, specific permits are required before transporting the cargo on any major highway and/or across state lines. WTC can make these oversize load arrangements on behalf of its customers.

Escorts for Wide Loads

In addition, Watsontown Trucking Company can also make arrangements for escorts for wide loads and oversize loads. WTC customers are assigned to a regional operations manager familiar with their unique service requirements, thus ensuring the timely delivery of their oversize loads.
