About us

About the Owner

Ed Painter, owner of ASAP Pilot Car Services, spent many years as a prairie farmer, so mechanical knowledge and a resourceful nature are part of who he is. As a trucker, he has hauled loads into the Northern U.S. as well as across Western Canada. Mountain roads or endless flat vistas – he’s driven them all, in every season.

He also knows how to be resourceful, whether he’s caught in a blizzard in northern mining country or getting an over-wide load over a narrow bridge on a detour.

Our Vehicles

All of our pilot cars are well equipped and well maintained. We can usually provide as many cars as you need for your job, large or small, with fully equipped pilot cars of our own and numerous affiliate drivers throughout Canada and the northern USA.


Our goal is to provide safe, reliable pilot car service at a fair and competitive price.

Safety Equipment

Our pilot cars are equipped with:

  • Overhead mounted lit “OVERSIZE” signs, each with a set of amber warning lights
  • All our drivers are PPE equipped
  • Truck mounted VHF and CB mobile radios
  • VHF and CB hand-held radios for your driver, to be used as secondary back-up communication if needed
  • Dashboard cameras
  • GPS
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Hand held STOP-SLOW sign
  • Flares and safety cones

Safe driving, common sense, hard work.

These are the characteristics that set ASAP and its owner, Ed Painter, apart from the competition. A former farmer and long-haul trucker, Ed understands just what drivers need from their pilot car or escort car operator.
