enjoyed the freedom over the last couple of years but still Wish we could have got away more often
www.gov.uk find a weighbridge

I put my postcode in and it gives you your nearest weighbridges and contact numbers.

My local one is at an animal feed manufacturer and just turn up pay £15 and get a printout. Before we moved we used a scrap metal yard.

Where is that one?

Used Goodman a few weeks ago and the operator didn't charge me at all as I didn't need a certificate

Morning Edwin,
We always use one of those listed above..

A W Jenkinson
Haweswater Road
Penrith Industrial Estate, Penrith CA11 9EU

54.6603426, -2.7674614

Nice ride up the A6 or M6 for you. Very easy access, Jenkinsons lorries are a lot bigger than your MH.:whistle:



Drive into the yard, you can turn round without reversing and back out onto the weigh bridge. Stop on the weighbridge and walk over to the office.
I always tell them I don't need a ticket and they write the weight down on a slip of paper - no charge.
I take a bottle of wine about every other visit.

since 2014!
Found that government website particularly unhelpful - that redirected me to the SurreyCC website, which states that there are no weighbridges in Surrey!!

We use a local builders merchant, who are happy to let us use their weighbridge, for a contribution to their charity box!! I use the mobile to take pictures of the front, rear, and combined axle weights.That gives you a dated record.

Good advice. I agree that the government and local authority sites aren't very helpful. Here in Wigan it looks like there are none. Went for a drive to a metal company in Westhoughton and found two companies next to each other with there own weighbridge. Look for a decent scrap metal dealer, usually charge a tenner.

All the gear, and no idea!
Usually if there’s a quarry local, it will have a public weighbridge. Ours will weigh private vehicles.
