...Accredited Pilots ensuring safe transportation of OVERSIZE loads

About Us

Ozwest (1976) Pty Ltd is a Road Pilot company which has been successfully in operation since 1976. We are the longest known Road Pilot company in Western Australia and have access to accredited Pilots Australia wide. All our Pilots have completed the formal training courses provided by the appropriate training providers in each State. The training course requires Pilots to pass both theory and practical examinations and also to have their vehicle examined and passed by the WA  Road Transport Association.

Road Pilots in Western Australia have their 'Authorised Persons' status gazetted by the government and this now enables them to exercise limited police powers in the course of their duties. e.g. Pilots may now legally travel on the wrong side of the road if safe to do so and have the power to control intersections, stand, stop or park vehicles being driven by members of the general public to ensure the safe passage of oversize loads.

Our past and present clients include companies such, ALE, Sadliers (RDS), Century West, Linfox, Countrywide House Transporters and Erectors.

We have been involved in the transport of a wide variety of loads, for e.g. steel roofing for the Perth Convention Centre, concrete wall panels for multi story buildings in and around Perth, farming equipment Australia wide, oversize trees to a variety of sites both in the metropolitan area and to country centres, railway line to the Freeway extensions at Currambine WA, and mining and construction equipment to mine sites throughout Australia.

We will only use accredited, experienced and reliable road Pilots. This ensures our clients are being offered a quality service for the safe piloting of a wide variety of oversize loads which are so essential for the continuing growth of industry in Western Australia.

Ozwest is experienced in organising any required Western Power/Horizon Power permits for the escort of oversize loads. We are competent in planning the most appropriate route for your loads to ensure they arrive in good order in a timely manner, if this is required by our clients.

We look forward to being given the opportunity to quote for your imminent project. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries, or if we are able to assist you in any way.
