These permits are broken down into three main areas which include single trip permits, period permits and audit regimes.

At Hevi Haul, we know how to price oversize loads and can quickly and accurately provide you with a quote and help to get an oversize load permit including providing you with the correct abnormal load permit application. Often oversize load regulations vary in each state and are updated regularly. Depending on what oversize load permit you need and what state you are transporting goods from will determine what permit you need. There are six main oversize load permits that our customers require our assistance with, which include:
1. AMMS – Accredited Mass Management Scheme
The AMMS was created by the Ministerial Heavy Vehicle Advisory Panel. The aim of the AMMS was to make sure the transport industry had a lenient concessional loading scheme. The end goal was to allow more heavy transport specialists to access concessional mass limits if they have the correct loading controls on their truck.
2. Special Purpose Vehicle
A special purpose vehicle is for purposes other than to carry loads. At an attempt to reduce the ‘red tape’ for the transport industry The Department of Transport and The Main Roads have recently reviewed the special purpose vehicle permit and the abnormal load permit application. Contact us to discuss if this is the right option for you.
3. OMOS – Oversize Overmass
An OMOS vehicle is a large vehicle that is for transporting a heady unbreakable item. This particular abnormal load permit application requires you to know the mass and dimensions of the load set out in the gazette notice. Usually, this permit involves oversize load escort requirements as well as an application through the NHVR portal.
4. Tri- Drive Truck & Trailer
