5 Safety Tips to Avoid Low Clearance Accidents
July 21, 2021
You've packed the boxes, loaded your Penske moving truck and are ready to go. But there's a few more things to consider before you hit the road.
Many movers have not driven a moving truck before and are not aware of the extra precautions driving a large 12 ft. to 26 ft. moving truck requires. Trucks are larger, wider and heavier than a typical vehicle and need more space to clear bridges, overpasses, low hanging trees and signage. It's easier than you think to become a viral video titled "moving truck hits bridge."
Check out these tips from Jason Herr, vice president of safety at Penske Logistics, to prevent low- clearance collisions before getting behind the wheel.
