San Diego Public Scale Services
We operate a 75 foot Certified Public Scale conveniently available to the San Diego community. It is freeway close, located within a mile or two of Interstate 8 and State Routes 52, 67, and 125.
Why you may need a certified public scale
You will need a public scale if you are registering a vehicle from out of state or moving a long distance.
Not all states require non-commercial vehicles to stop at weigh stations but there are exceptions and you need to know them. For example, some states require an agriculture inspection at the state border if you are coming from, or entering, a quarantine area.
Sometimes there can be a misunderstanding of state regulations and you may get varying answers. We have compiled a list to help you determine states where you may need to stop at weigh stations:
- Arkansas – Sometimes: They only require commercial vehicles, which include truck rentals that are hauling commercial goods.
- California – Always: All trucks are required to stop, commercial and rental.
- Florida – Sometimes: If a truck is strictly used for personal property you don’t need to stop. But you are required to if you hauling commercial and or agricultural products.
