Looking for a vehicle weigh station or a certified public scale in Anaheim? Then you have come to the right place. Alex Moving & Storage has a public scale, which is operated by our certified weighmaster for use from 8 am to 5 pm on weekdays.
Why You May Need a Certified Public Scale
Commercial truckload operators and others in the transportation industry typically need to report their full-or-partial load weight upon loading or delivery of shipments. For those outside the industry, California DMV regulations may require documentation as part of out-of-state commercial vehicle registration. Typically, this would be a weighmaster’s certificate of unladen (empty) weight for commercial vehicles with hauling capabilities or those used for transport (taxis, rental cars, etc.).
Declaring the gross vehicle weight may require visiting a weigh station. Copies of your weight ticket are good to keep in case further documentation is needed. Some vehicles, depending on weight and use, may require a weighmaster’s certificate as part of the registration process.
Failure to get your commercial vehicle weighed (and/or receive the right certificates from an Anaheim weigh station) will affect you negatively. For instance, if your vehicle is pulled over by police on public roads, you will be penalized if you don’t have your weight certificate. In the worst-case scenario, the vehicle could even be impounded.
