What is a Pilot Truck Service?

A pilot truck, also known as an escort vehicle, is a specialized vehicle that plays a critical role in the safe transportation of oversized or heavy haul loads. Our pilot trucks on Vancouver Island are crucial for ensuring that large and potentially hazardous cargoes are transported safely across highways and busy roads. These vehicles are equipped with specialized communication and navigation tools, like GPS and CB/VHF radios, to maintain constant coordination and situational awareness.

Our pilot trucks on Vancouver Island lead or follow the oversized load, depending on the requirements, to aid in maneuvering through traffic, addressing road safety concerns, and ensuring compliance with transportation regulations. They are also outfitted with warning signs and lights to alert other road users to the presence of a large cargo.
