Are you preparing to relocate your commercial facility? Do you own heavy construction equipment such as bulldozers or excavators that need to be transported to the next job site?
If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, you’ve come to the right place. At Double D Distribution, we have more than three decades of experience hauling and transporting heavy equipment. To ensure the process is easy, safe and hassle-free, we’ve invested in lowboy and tag-a-long trailers.
These specialty trailers make it possible to transport equipment that weighs thousands of pounds or is over 12 feet tall. Each lowboy or tag-a-long is just 18 inches off the ground. That makes loading and unloading equipment easy. It also helps our drivers clear bridges or overpasses with specific height restrictions.
Our heavy transport capabilities go far beyond basic equipment. We can also help you and your team acquire the necessary permits to transport heavy loads legally. If your load exceeds a certain height or weight, you’ll need an oversize load permit.
In the state of Utah, a load is considered oversized if:
- The vehicle exceeds a width of 8.5 feet.
- The vehicle exceeds a height of 14 feet.
- A single-unit vehicle, with or without a load, exceeds a length of 45 feet, including the front and rear bumpers.
Failing to acquire the necessary documentation and permits before moving could result in exorbitant fines or penalties. Not only that, but it can put your drivers and other team members at risk.
Don’t rush through the process. Adhere to all state and federal laws to ensure your business remains compliant. Taking the time to fill out the correct paperwork now, can save you plenty of headaches and hassle later on.
