Why SmartWeigh

SmartWeigh differs from commonly found truck scales in several ways:

  • Truck scales are platform scales, which only give you the weight per axle. Individual wheel weights are necessary to identify and resolve side-to-side balance and tire loading issues. Truck platform scales can actually give you a false “safe” indication and allow you to operate with one or more tires overloaded.
  • Our fees for SmartWeigh are higher than truck scales because of this extra effort, as well as the one-on-one consultation you receive with each weighing.
  • Within a single appointment, you can have your tow vehicle weighed, your trailer weighed, and the weight when your trailer is hitched to your tow vehicle. The same method can be used with motorhome and towed vehicles.
  • Because of our unique method of weighing, you are able determine the tongue weight of your tow vehicle using the data we give you.

What You Get with SmartWeigh:

  • Personal attention throughout the duration of your appointment
  • An individual consultation following your weighing when your weighmaster discusses your results and suggestions for correcting an imbalance or overweight issue if needed.
  • A discount on your re-weigh, if it is determined that you need to make changes to your weight distribution. You have 180 days to return to any SmartWeigh site after your initial weigh to take advantage of this discount. You must provide a copy of your original weight sheet.
