Gainsborough Waste is proud to announce a new truck scale service at our Dump Site facility in Houston.
We now offer a full-service, one-stop shop for weighing and dropping off your waste load – no need to take it anywhere else. We provide an easy, convenient process:
- Weigh your load.
- Pull your truck forward.
- Dump your waste.
- Re-weigh to receive your bill and accurate reading.
Truck scales are considered the industry’s most versatile and popular weighing option. Our scale system will ensure your vehicle is filled to the proper capacity and help you avoid the possibility of overloading.
Here are some fantastic ways waste haulers can use truck scales in Houston to their benefit.
Getting the Most from a Truck Scale
An industrial scale is essential for correctly reading a vehicle’s load weight. It’s the waste hauler’s answer for better inventory tracking and avoidance of costly overload fines. It also serves to verify weights and shipping compliance.
Truck scales are incredibly reliable, and having one right at our Dump Site makes your job that much easier.
Financial Benefits of Using a Truck Scale
Revenue in the waste industry is dependent on weight data. Waste haulers can use the information from truck scales to secure and increase profits since your truck’s load weight is directly tied to your profitability.
An accurate reading of your load can help you correctly calculate the value of your loads.
Safety Benefits of Using a Truck Scale
It’s risky to drive in an overloaded truck, both for the driver and the vehicle itself. Putting too much strain on a truck means expensive premature repairs that take time and take your vehicle off the road.
Even if you don’t run into a physical problem with your vehicle, the penalties for overloading can add up quickly and cut profits. If you know that the weight was too high before you dump your waste, you’ll have a better idea of what your vehicle can take on for future trips.
Tax Benefits of Using a Truck Scale
Truck carriers must pay taxes to compensate for the stress they add to public roads. Known as the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT), this fee is assessed on vehicles that use highways with a registered gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more.
The tax bill is no small expense, so it’s a good idea to have detailed information to determine how much you’ll need to pay the government.
Using the scale at our Dump Site will provide you with accurate weights before and after you drop your waste off. With this data, you’ll have all the information you need come tax time.
Time Benefits of Using a Truck Scale
Truck scales save a waste hauler lots of time. With our scale, there’s no need to leave the vehicle. You just drive onto the scale and get the information you need. That means no more lifting heavy materials onto a separate scale and no need to slow down your operation.
Plus, trucks that surpass the weight restrictions at a weighing station on the interstate will have to split their load or apply for a permit. These delays can be frustrating and can cause a waste hauler’s efficiency to plummet. Keep things moving with the help of Gainsborough Waste!
