We'll help you move your equipment safely
Need to move tall farm or oilfield equipment, grain bins or a ready-to-move home or building? We’ve got you covered. Today's farm equipment is bigger than ever, and that can lead to big problems when you're working around power lines. Call us before moving farm equipment or grain bins near power lines. We’ll measure power lines in your yard or field, help plan the safest route and lift the power lines, if needed.
IS YOUR LOAD “OVER HEIGHT”?
- If the height of your load is more than 4.15 metres (13.6 feet), it’s considered "over height" and you’ll need to get a permit from Alberta Transportation.
- If the height of your load is more than 5.3 metres (17.4 feet), talk to us. We’ll help plan the safest and most efficient route. If needed, we’ll escort the move and lift or move power lines.
Tall equipment and power lines don't mix.
Update as of June 19, 2023: We are once again accepting high load move requests. Our response to the ongoing wildfire situation may impact available resources and routes, which could delay initial move dates and loads that are in progress. We will make every effort to execute planned load moves as quickly and safely as possible. New load requests will be approved on a case-by-case basis. Please note: Due to the backlog of requests, our turnaround time for high load moves will likely extend beyond 10 business days.
Call 1-855-277-1670 if you have a high load to move.

Tips for Moving Equipment or Working Near Power Lines
Stay seven metres away from power lines
When operating grain augers, air seeders, dump trucks or other equipment, stay at least seven metres (23 feet) away from the line. If you must work closer, please call us.
Plan before moving tall equipment
Map your route, locate overhead power lines and be sure that you can cross safely under them. Be especially cautious if equipment is over 4.1 metres.
Never measure line heights or raise lines yourself
We’re happy to do that for you with the proper equipment and safety measures. Don't put yourself at risk.
