SellEton’s Certified Truck Scale

Truck weight scales are essential to daily business operations in many industries. Accurately weighing vehicles and their contents is essential for many tasks, including weighing inventory, ensuring vehicle safety, evaluating business efficiency, and making commercial transactions.

“Certified” industrial truck scales are scales that comply with the regulations set out by the National Type Evaluation Program (NTEP).  These rules are designed to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the scales used in commercial applications. Most NTEP-approved scales are also Legal For Trade, which means they can be used by a business that sells items based on weight.

In this article, I’ll explain the importance of using certified truck scales in your business and share some of the NTEP-certified truck scales sold by SellEton Scales.

The Importance of Using Certified Truck Scales

Being able to weigh vehicles accurately is important for several reasons, including:


  • Authenticated commercial transactions
    Certified scales are essential for businesses that sell based on weight. Truck scales are handy as they can measure pallets, cargo, and fully loaded vehicles. By measuring your product’s weight accurately, you can ensure the transaction is honest, that your contractual obligations have been met, and that consumer confidence is maintained.
  • Avoiding accidental oversupply
    Accurate measurement means you avoid accidentally giving the customer more than they paid—which may cost your business thousands of dollars each year.
  • Faster weighing of goods
    You can accurately weigh an entire truckload of cargo in less than a minute using a certified truck scale. This speeds up the weighing process, leading to productivity improvements for your business.
  • Safety
    Businesses must ensure that vehicles are adequately supplied and have their weight correctly distributed throughout the vehicle. Having access to certified truck scales makes this task simple.

Frequently Asked Questions About Truck Scales

What Is a Truck Scale?

This is a weighing system used to measure trucks, other vehicles, and large equipment. With a modular design, it can also weigh liquids.

Is a Truck Scale the Same as Another Vehicle Scale?

Yes, the two terms are generally used interchangeably. Note the difference between a truck scale and an industrial scale.

What Makes Truck Scales Special?

Usually, a vehicle scale will contain a load cell. This boosts its value and reliability.

What Is a Load Cell?

A load cell is a sensor used to convert force into a weight measurement. Compared to default scales, a load cell is more sensitive, making its weight readings more accurate.

Why Are Load Cells Important?

The benefit of a load cell is that it provides more accurate weight readings. A load cell also increases the lifespan of the scale.

Who Needs Truck Scales the Most?

Truck drivers must ensure their vehicle is in line with the NIST Handbook. A truck scale allows them to accurately weigh the vehicle and assess if it is up to code.

Can Trucks Scales Be Used Beyond Vehicle Weighing?

A truck scale can be used in demanding applications ranging from weighing single, large items to measuring bulk goods. You can use a truck scale to determine profitability on items sold by weight or to weigh heavy materials such as concrete or steel.

Weighing large machinery and heavy equipment is also an option with a vehicle scale. It's favored by almost any manufacture company working in a heavy duty industry.

Can People Outside These Industries Buy Truck Scales?

Yes, but an industrial or commercial scale may better fit their needs.

Are Truck Scales Too Heavy to Transport?

Generally, a truck scale is not meant to be transported after installation. However, it can be relocated if necessary. This process is often costly and requires a lot of effort, especially for concrete decks. If you need to frequently move the scale, consider a steel deck or portable truck scales.

What Kinds of Portable Truck Scales Are There?

Most truck scales are not designed to be frequently transported. However, we have portable weight pads that you can buy in a set of two or four.

Is There an Alternative Weighing Platform to Truck Scales?

Truck scales can easily weigh up to 50,000 pounds or more. If you only need to weigh a few thousand pounds, consider one of our industrial scales instead.

Is Installation Required for a Vehicle Scale?

When you order a vehicle scale, the product itself does not require installation. The weighing terminal may need to be calibrated several times before your first use.

Prior to buying a truck scale, you should make sure you have a designated area prepared for it. Ideally, use a concrete foundation to keep the scale secure. The truck scale you order comes with installation instructions.

What Should I Consider Before Buying a Truck Scale?

Pay attention to costs, materials (concrete vs steel), and the size of trucks or other vehicles being weighed. You should also determine if you want a simple vehicle scale or advanced technology. Scale protectors are available either in-ground or above ground.

You have your choice of a concrete deck or a steel deck. Concrete decks are usually heavier, which allows them to support more weight. They also last longer.

A steel deck is lighter, making it easier to relocate. The natural ruggedness of a concrete deck and the added treads of a steel deck both provide better traction.
