When traveling across country, there are extra precautions to take into consideration while moving an oversized load. Different parts of the country offer unique terrains, traffic laws and OTR challenges.

5J Trucking Oilfield Services gave us a call in November to help them get a 16’6” tall Skid transported from Arkansas to Indiana. We were happy to send over a truck and crew to lead them on this 580 mile journey.

The piece was delivered safely and successfully to its destination.

VersaBucket is happy to escort ALL unique loads!

Not every oversized load is moved under the perfect conditions, but a little fog can’t bring us down!

This past week Triton began their journey transporting a 17’10” Screener from Houston to Canada and needed our assistance through Texas. Our 2 VersaBucket crews made sure they were safely escorted through the state.

We wish them a safe and uneventful journey through to Fort McMurray!

As oversize loads travel across the country, there are plenty of roadway obstructions that can affect their route.

This Transformer moved by Deep South is no exception. Moving from Houston to San Ignacio, TX, there are plenty of opportunities for low hanging lines, traffic signals, roadway signs and countless other barriers to get in their way.

VersaBucket makes sure that these obstructions are taken care of professionally, and keeps your transport rolling on smoothly.

Thanks Deep South for trusting us to clear your route!

Often times OTR heavy haul loads aren’t only traveling by land during their journey. A perfect example is this HP Fuel Gas Mixing Drum transported by Hansa Meyer that we provided bucket escorts for during September.

This piece weighed in at an impressive 1,036,000 pounds and stood 24’2” tall and 30’ wide. We sent over 5 bucket trucks with crews to help clear the way over 13 days and 310 miles of travel from McGregor to Bloomington, TX.

The piece was successfully delivered in Bloomington and will be barged the rest of the way to Cameron, LA, its final destination.

Thanks Hansa Meyer for trusting VersaBucket to safely escort your oversized transport!

Over the last couple of months, Lonestar Transportation had us escort this 275’ long and 16’6” tall windmill blade from Brownsville to Zapata, TX. We sent over a truck and crew to get this load routed safely and kept it clear from any external obstacles.
