Transporting a Bank Vault Door Charlotte to Denver NC

Transporting a bank vault from Denver to Charlotte isn’t something you see often.

What does a trucking company need to do to transport a bank vault door? How heavy are they?

Transporting a bank vault door is a specialized task that requires careful planning, coordination, and adherence to various regulations and safety protocols. As part of the initial assessment and planning stage, we need to first determine the weight and dimensions of the bank vault door. When assessing the route to be taken, considering road conditions, bridge clearances, turns, and potential obstacles.

We’ll calculate the required permits and ensure compliance with local, state, and federal regulations for oversize and overweight loads. For specialized machinery or equipment, we’ll arrange for a specialized truck or trailer that can handle the weight and size of the vault door. This might include a flatbed trailer, lowboy trailer, or heavy-duty crane truck. We’ll ensure that the truck and trailer are in proper working condition and equipped with the necessary safety features.

Next comes the loading and securing of the bank vault. It is necessary to use cranes and/or forklifts to carefully load the vault door onto the trailer, ensuring it is balanced and securely attached. Using proper rigging equipment such as chains, straps, and braces to secure the vault door in place during transit, preventing any movement that could lead to damage or accidents.

We’ll take safety precautions as well as follow all safety regulations and guidelines to protect both the load and the public during transportation. While on the road it’s mandatory to utilize proper lighting and signage to indicate the oversized load to other drivers. Depending on the size and weight of the load, you might need to arrange for escort vehicles to accompany the transport and ensure safe passage.

Obtaining any necessary permits for transporting oversized and heavy loads, including route-specific permits involves route planning. Planning the route carefully to avoid roads with weight restrictions, low clearances, tight turns, or any other potential obstacles that could hinder safe transportation.

As for the weight of bank vault doors, they can vary widely depending on factors such as the size, material, and security features. Vault doors can weigh anywhere from a few thousand pounds (several tons) to well over 20,000 pounds (10+ tons). Some larger and more secure vault doors can even weigh up to 50,000 pounds or more. It’s important for the trucking company to have accurate weight and dimension measurements to properly plan for transportation and ensure safety.
