You have a need; TanTara has the solution. Our diverse fleet allows us to transport freight of all weights and sizes. In fact, we love the challenge of an oversized haul.

Our extended trailers are perfect for oversized materials. We can accommodate both standard and over dimension loads with equipment including roll-top conestoga trailers, flatbeds, tankers, and dry-van trailers. We also use escorts and carry permits to ensure safe delivery of oversized loads.
