When Your Weights Must Work

I own a small trucking firm and recently required a load cell repair. One of my employs accidentally drove his rig over our scale and caused all sorts of damage. If you are familiar with the trucking industry, you know how important it is to make sure your loads are probably measured. An improperly measured load will damage your rig by causing irregular tire wear as well as suspension problems. Moreover, not measuring your load correctly can cost you big time if you got caught at a weigh station. You will face extensive fines and have your rig pulled off the road. That means the load doesn’t reach the customer on time. The result? You lose your contract.

The worst damage was to the load cell. Instead of ordering another one, which is costly and also needs to be installed, I decided to look online for a place to repair the one we already own. It was important to find a place that could repair it to brand new specs. No sense in sending it in and then finding out it’s not calibrated correctly. If that happens, once again you’re in trouble with the authorities when you have to stop at a weigh station. They don’t care if your load cell is working correctly or not. They don’t care about excuses.

So I found a place and got it sent in and the service was excellent. Not only did it not take too long, the work was exemplary. It is indeed just like a brand new load cell. I know for a fact that in the future should I have further issues with this part that I will contact this firm and have them help me out again. I couldn’t be happier and I know we won’t be running into any problems with our rig loads.
