Height Pole Services

Reliably clear all overhead obstructions by working with experienced height pole escorts who will keep your drivers aware of all relevant, real-time information.

Expert Guidance for Your Overheight Loads

When required by permit, front escorts require height poles, or telescopic poles that attach to the front bumpers of their vehicles. Typically, these poles extend six inches higher than the maximum height of an over-height load to ensure it clears any overhead obstruction along a route.

In addition to providing all of the essential functions of a front pilot car, height pole pilot cars further protect over-height loads — but to do this, it’s crucial that their equipment doesn’t fail.

Because functioning height poles determine the success or failure of many over-height shipments, our experienced height pole escorts must:

  • Meet strict equipment standards that prevent height pole failures and all potentially catastrophic results.
  • Know how to clearly communicate with your drivers and relay all relevant, real-time information related to overhead obstacles.

At Sentinel, we understand how stressful it can be to ship freight that far exceeds legal height parameters. That's why we only connect you with the most experienced height pole escorts with the best equipment.
