Research and Homework

As we have mentioned previously, buying a truck scale is a process and requires research and homework. Quite often the final decision should not be just about price alone. There are other factors to consider as well.  The foundation that is under the truck scale needs to be solid and measured correctly.  The weighbridge needs to be built tough and built to withstand the elements for years.  The ramp and approach on each end of the scale must meet certain standards.  The digital weight indicator that is used for the scale needs to be one that meets the customers needs. Does the customer prefer a bright red LED display or a gray and black LCD?  Does the customer wish to store Truck ID numbers as the trucks go in and out from the scale?  Does the customer hope to connect the digital indicator to a ticket printer?  What if they want to connect to both a printer and a remote display?  Finally, am I buying a truck scale from a company that can service and repair the scale? These are all questions that need to be researched and will help the customer purchase the best overall value in a truck scale.
