Rental Trucks and Weigh Stations - Dumb Question Alert
Posted: Mon Oct 13, 2008 8:37:08 PM

This is kind of embarassing, but I'm short on time and looking for some quick answers.  In three days we will be driving a 22' rental truck pulling our car from Alabama to Arizona.  I've been told that I will have to stop at weigh stations along the way, which is something I've never had to do in previous moves.  I can't seem to find anything on-line which explains exactly what will happen, where I go, and what to do.  Do I have to stop at every open weigh station?   What can I expect since I obviously have no transponder?

Sorry for posting such a stupid question - but I can't seem to find answers anywhere else.  Thanks in advance....

the only dumb questions are the ones not ask as far as I know you dont have to stop but you might want to contact your local authorities and ask them they should be able to point you in the right direction

Nope.. you can skip the weight station.. I know its a few months late. The weight stations are for commercial trucking. If you were in a rental truck for commercial use, you would have to weigh in.
