Rear Escort Services

Easily navigate roadways, protect your overdimentional shipments and keep the public safe by relying on some of the most experienced rear escorts in the industry.

Experienced Navigation at Every Step

Although requirements vary by state, many oversized shipments require rear pilot cars, which serve as essential buffers that keep traffic at a safe distance.

In addition to warning traffic approaching from behind that your overdimensional load is ahead, rear escorts also serve a number of other crucial functions, including:


  • Alerting the front escort and your driver of traffic buildup.
  • Notifying your driver of any vehicles attempting to pass the load.
  • Warning traffic to stop when roadways narrow or other obstructions prevent safe passage.
  • Notifying your driver of flat tires, objects coming loose from the load or anything else your driver may not be able to see or be aware of.

For all of these reasons, it's necessary that you have access to only the most experienced rear escorts. At Sentinel Pilot Car Services, our rear escorts are some of the most experienced in the industry.
