Ramp Load Limits

BC Ferries policy is to ensure posted ramp load limits are not exceeded.

With that in mind, vehicles determined to be overweight will not be eligible to travel, unless the vehicle is pre-approved in writing by a Professional Engineer designated by BC Ferries.

All of the terminals noted below have a Ramp Load and Axle Limit of 39,500kg (5 loaded axles). Vehicles exceeding 39,500kg will not be permitted to travel at these terminals.

  • Crofton & Vesuvius
  • Chemainus, Thetis Island and Penelakut Island
  • Sturdies Bay (Galiano Island)

    The driver of the vehicle will be required to provide proof of vehicle weight, through a current weigh bill or an Overweight Vehicle Passage Approval Form issued by BC Ferries, prior to being authorized to travel.

    We appreciate your cooperation.
