Traverse the New York highways with ease through this surety bond!

New York Special Hauling Permit BondIf your vehicle exceeds the allowable legal weight limit and dimensions stated in Section 385 of the New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law, you must apply for a special hauling permit.

The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles will require you to submit a sufficient surety bond for the issuance of the aforementioned special hauling permit.

The surety bond is a way to ensure that the permit holder will comply with the rules for over-dimensional and overweight vehicles. This includes traveling across the designated highways during the permissible hauling days.


What is the Special Hauling Permit Bond amount?

The bond amount will depend on the dimension, weight, or class of vehicles.


Height: ≥ 16 Feet but < 17 Feet = $10,000

≥ 17 Feet  = $30,000

Width: > 16 Feet = $10,000

Length: > 160 Feet = $10,000

Weight: ≥ 200,000 Lbs. but < 300,000 Lbs. = $10,000

≥ 300,000 Lbs. but < 400,000 Lbs = $20,000

> 400,000 Lbs  = $50,000

Type 15 – 16 Foot Manufactured Home = $10,000/move or $25,000/company

For combinations of dimensions and weight, the total bond amount will be determined by adding the bond amount required for each weight and dimension.

For example The total bond for a vehicle that has the following dimensions and weight.

$30,000 (Height 18 ft.) + $10,000 (width 18 ft.) + $10,000 (163 ft. length) + $50,000 (430,000 lbs. weight) = $100,000 TOTAL BOND AMOUNT
