I used Titan Worldwide to hotshot a forklift from South Dakota to Wyoming and was very happy with their service. The pickup and delivery went smoothly, with no issues or hiccups. Our branch received their forklift within a day. The whole process was fast and easy, from the price quote to offloading. Big thanks to Ashley Hawkins. A+ service and professionalism.

I work for a major insurance company, and Titan Worldwide has been our primary long haul provider for over 5 years. They continue to offer unrivaled customer service and reasonable pricing. Titan is capable of handling the most complex of jobs with expert precision. Meagan, in particular, has been wonderful. She is always available to provide bids, and does an excellent job of keeping us informed throughout the transporting process. I would highly recommend Titan to anyone in need of long distance vehicle hauling.

Titan is very communicative and great to work with. Providing the most affordable pricing to their customers and diverse in what they handle as far as heavy equipment freight goes. They're not scared to take on some new projects and get stuff done. Some of my favorite people to work with. If you don't work with em change that.

Our Hot Shot Trucking Services & Capabilities

Speed and Flexibility

Our hot shot truck drivers focus on hot shot freight. Hauling loads like these require experienced drivers who understand the critical nature of these load types. Our drivers typically transport a single hot shot load or several small loads that fit in a vehicle as small as a Sprinter van or pickup truck. Because of their size and slower speeds, full-size tractor-trailers do not have the flexibility to compete with hot shot drivers.

Hot Shot Loads

Hot shot loads can consist of almost any cargo, but the typical hot shot driver will carry farm equipment, heavy machinery, construction equipment, and agricultural equipment and materials. Hot shot jobs might have available loads of 50 miles, or hot shot drivers could cross state lines.

Saving Your Company Money

One advantage of choosing hot shot trucking is cost. Purchasing space in the trucking industry is expensive, and a full-sized motor carrier must charge more for its overhead. A smaller hot shot truck usually has lower operating expenses and charges less. A hot shot truck driver also takes smaller loads, so using a large traditional motor carrier does not make financial sense if your shipment is small. However, hot shot trucking makes perfect sense!

What is Hot Shot Trucking?

When companies need an essential piece of equipment, machinery, or materials at a moment’s notice and traditional trucking can’t meet the delivery requirements, they often turn to hot shot truckers to expedite these time-sensitive loads.

The typical hot shot truck is in Class 3 to Class 5 range, and pickup trucks are sometimes used. Hot shot trucking, aka hotshot trucking, involves various trailers, including gooseneck trailers, lowboy trailers, and flatbed trailers. Since failure to deliver expedited loads within the required time frame is usually costly, speed is the hallmark of hot shot trucking.

Hot Shot Loads FAQ

Which trailer types do hotshot drivers use?

The shorter bumper pull trailers are popular with civilian drivers, while many drivers prefer gooseneck trailers with their tighter turn radius and ability to carry heavier loads. Some hot shot drivers use pickup trucks with a flatbed trailer, and others choose lowboy trailers for their low center of gravity, ideal for the heaviest loads. Finally, tilt deck trailers incline for more effortless loading of heavy cargo.

How do drivers find hot shot trucking jobs?

The typical hot shot driver finds jobs on a hot shot load board. Companies look for hot shot trucks in their area that can pick up loads and get on the road quickly, and load boards are an efficient way for them to advertise and for drivers to find loads. Searching for loads has a monthly fee, but it is the best way to secure loads.

Do hot shot truckers need a commercial driver's license (CDL)?

You don’t always need a CDL to be a hot shot driver, but it could come in handy in the future if you decide to become an owner-operator. Getting your foot in the door without one can give you a taste of driving as a career. Hot shot drivers have lower truck payments and fuel costs with their medium-duty trucks than driving a full-size motor carrier.

In the event your gross combination weight rating (GCWR) exceeds 26,000 pounds and the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed exceeds 10,000 pounds, you need a CDL
