    Can anyone help with regards to a weighbridge company between Dover and Whitstable (or in the Kent area) that also gives front and rear axle measurements? I'm currently abroad but will be looking to have the MH weighed on my return, I have used the Reich portable scales kindly loaned to me by a fellow funster in Benicarlo (thanks Ed) but want to confirm the readings.
    Thanks, Paul

    Thanks Forestboy, I had phoned a couple of these but they didn't do both axles, just the gross weight. I thought I would see if anyone had personal knowledge of a weighbridge around this area as I might have the van uprated, also I need the separate weights for the correct tyre pressures :)

    sounds odd..all you do is roll front axle on (take weight) roll all the van on (take weigh) drive off with rear axle on (take weight) :)

    A bit out of your way maybe, but when we lived in Tenterden I used ..
    R Sternberg & Co.
    Frenchay Farm
    Reading Street
    Tenterden
    TN30 7DJ

    Telephone: 01580 764988
    Capacity: 50 tonnes
    Plate size: 15 x 3m
    Open: Monday to Friday 8am - 5pm. Other times by appointment.

    It's on FB's list and they would let you weigh each axle and complete vehicle and so long as you don't need a print out only charge for one .

    They may not print the axle weights for you just the gross. But as said just roll forward and backwards and take a note of the weights. It's no big deal honestly.
