Having looked at recent posts it would appear that some members are moaning about the 'trolls' and highjacking of threads. Looking back even further I can see how a minority of members try to cause this. However I have to agree with brian(st albans) in as much that its not just the 'trolls' who do this. Actually I have a feeling that they are sharper knives than some may like to think.

Anyway,to a question from a novice. How accurate are weighbridges and do you have to book an appointment or can you just turn up?

Hi Derek

try speaking to your local Trading Standards office they should be able to help.Better still ask them which w/bridge they use to calibrate other w/bridges in your area.Hope this helps.

Trading Standards stamp weighbridges by using weights hired from a specialist company such as Avery.

if it is a 20 Tonne bridge for example the company will lift the weights onto the bridge starting say 1 tonne weights up to the max weight required with the Weights and measures officer making a record of each stage up to the max weight. if the bridge is not within the tolerances allowed he will refuse to stamp the weighbridge until the brige mechanism is repaired etc.

This is a costly business in terms of time and cost so most bridges are 1) maintained and inspected by say Avery and when the bridge is A1 they will call in the Officer to witness the test weighing. hope this assists you in your requirements
