Legally moving your crane and heavy equipment can be a dangerous, legally challenging task. Youâ€™ll need a reliable, certified crane pilot car or escort service to help you navigate to your next job successfully. When selecting a pilot car or escort service, youâ€™ll want to make sure they are permitted and certified in the states youâ€™ll be moving your crane or equipment. You also want to make sure they have a good amount of insurance (at least $1 million). Good crane escort services come with radio communications, banners, orange flags, two-way radios, and special state rated fire extinguishers. Also make sure your crane service understands the local requirements of the utilities and logistics involved on the route chosen. Finally, check out your crane pilot car servicesâ€™ safety record to make sure safety is their number one priority in escorting your crane and heavy equipment.
