This is a topic that we have covered in the past, but we want to go a little deeper into exactly what a “super load” is and what are the differences between super loads and a regular oversize load.
In the simplest possible form, Super loads are bigger than a regular oversize loads. Now, depending on where you are these rules might vary a bit, so be sure to double check the measurements before making any determination. If you’re unsure and working with us you can just call us and we’ll answer any question you might have.
As previously stated, different states have different rules, but typically speaking super loads are over 16 feet wide, 160 feet long, 16 feet tall, and weigh somewhere over 200,000 pounds. You can read more about it here.
Now, moving any oversize load requires tedious planning and specific precautions, but with a super load, we need to be even more sure of the route due to the larger nature of these loads. Also, be sure to realize that super load permits typically take a little longer than a normal oversize permit, so plan ahead.
