Types of PermitsHOUSE MOVERS EQUIPMENT PERMITS: ($15.00 monthly per company)
House Movers Equipment
These permits are for equipment used in an unloaded condition by companies engaged in the business of moving buildings. The permits allow the empty tractor/trailer combination the necessary dimensions for movement on all state highways. However, equipment that exceeds 8 feet 6 inches in width may not move on Interstate highways without a separate oversize trip permit. All equipment exceeding 10 feet in width are to be restricted to daylight hours only. For loads that exceed 12 feet in width or 90 feet in length, a certified escort will be required for each move.
Vehicles with a valid permit are not prohibited from traveling at night (as long as the vehicle does not exceed 10 feet in width), or during moderate rain, but are prohibited on certain holidays. House Movers Equipment Permits are issued on regular permit forms or on computer generated forms from the Truck Permit Office or the Louisiana Truck Center.
