Safe Operations for a Reliable and Efficient Bucket Truck Escort

10.16.18

Safety is our number one priority on a bucket truck escort. To keep our customer promise, we maintain the highest safety standards in the industry. Our purpose is to get your team and cargo safely to its destination.

When Kenny, Kenco’s founder, bought his first bucket truck, painted it purple and began building our company, he recognized that nobody provided specialized oversize transport escort services. Construction companies had bucket trucks, but there were no crews trained to manage the risks involved with oversize transports. Now, Kenco maintains a large fleet and our crew is available 24/7 to provide safe transportation for oversize loads.

We equip our purple bucket trucks and operators with the tools and equipment they need to clear the way for your transport. We schedule annual maintenance checks to make sure our fleet is prepared for the long haul.

But most importantly, we train our crews to be the most competent bucket truck utility operators in the industry. We don’t just test their skill with tools, equipment, trucks and traffic installations. The mechanical side of the job is essential, but it’s only part of the job.

We also drill our crews to handle unexpected complications and work with local authorities to manage traffic in the case of complications. Our operators are problem solvers in the field, and that requires effective communication with utilities and local authorities if any issues arise.

The key to a successful bucket truck escort, however, is preventing issues in the first place. To that end, our crews perform line prep before and after oversize load transportation. Preparation begins with your route plan. Decades in the industry has taught us the ins and outs of oversize transport routes in the United States. Before departure our operators run the route to loosen lines and other installations, streamlining operations and preventing hiccups.

Kenco has built a reputation in the industry we’re determined to live up to. When a purple truck is out in front, you have the most experienced and professional crew leading your team. If you have HIGH LOADS, count on Kenco for OPEN ROADS.
