Oversize load trucking companies are responsible for transporting freight, as well as other larger items that exceed maximum size limits legally set for particular trailers. For this type of company to transport oversize shipments, special permits are typically required. In addition, a unique route may be necessary as a means of avoiding obstacles such as narrow passages and low bridges.
Because there are special requirements for overload trucking, shipments are often difficult and complex. For that reason, it is imperative that you hire the best trucking company if you have freight deemed oversized. As part of getting freight from its origin to the final destination, an expert in logistics must follow precise regulations and perform tasks that are extremely detailed and complicated.
A reputable oversize load company will obtain all the necessary permits, plan an appropriate route for the driver to take, acquire the proper trailer and/or equipment, and secure loads to ensure they arrive as scheduled and safely at both the pickup and drop off location.
Drivers who handle oversize loads have extensive training, experience, and knowledge.
Because these drivers are accustomed to moving different types of freight or equipment, there is awareness of special precautions and necessary regulations associated with a job such as this.

Greg Grimes got it done. I had an unusual shipment that he took on seriously and professionally. Greg was very responsive and communicative, worked many different angles to get me a good price, and overcame several logistical challenges. I would definitely use MGA again.
We have made several trips to Toronto for the 2013 PGA Championship and over the course of those trips we have gotten to know the principles of this organization well. They are headquartered in Toronto and are great people. If you need to reach out to them, ask for Greg or Brad Grimes and let them know you heard of them through this note and they will take good care of you.
Can count on MGA for all my shipping requirements. Fantastic personnel and service.
