Hello! We are Holger and Christina Reed of H&C Reed LLC: Pilot Car Services.

• Who We Are…

o I served in the Army for 10 years. Once out of the military I decided to continue my love of working with, being around and being in big heavy equipment by joining the trucking industry. When starting my career, I drove a van truck, but quickly realized this was not for me. I missed the outdoors and physical part of my job, which I had grown used to in the military. I figured out fast that flatbed, step-deck, double drop, lowboy, and RGN Trailers were for me. This is when I Started hauling over-sized, heavy-haul, and over-dimensional loads.

o After retiring from a 15-year career as an over the road (OTR) truck driver who has hauled primarily flatbed step-deck, double drop, lowboy, and RGN Trailers. I decided I missed the call of the open road. I missed traveling the country, being on a deadline, delivering items to people who needed them in awe of the size of the equipment I was moving.

o This inclined me to pair up with my wife who assisted me on the truck and we start our own Oversize Load Escort business. We have been in business since 2017.
