Escort car services go hand in hand with oversized heavy haul transportation. Escort cars, also referred to as pilot cars or pole cars, are equipped with a variety of tools that help make heavy load transportation safer. Pilot car service helps to ensure the safety of the equipment you have to transport, the heavy haul driver and the public.
