I just pulled into a weigh station that did not have a lot of Big Rigs in and they weighed us no problem. Heck if you pull up and they don't weigh you just continue on no big deal. They gave me a nice weigh certificate that was date stamped and certified.

Thank you,

Chuck if your still looking for someone to weigh your MH give Pete's Roadservice a call. They weighed my MH last year (each wheel). They are in Fullerton 714-446-1207. They gave me a weight certificate and properly serviced all of my tires.

My wife works at a grain elevator/terminal on the Columbia River, their scale is elevated so no way to get four corner weights.
Best to call first and see if they can do it.

You're the boss if you're paying them. Just explain what you want to do so they get it. You could weigh either end, then the whole thing to get your axle weights too.

Regarding the elevated (CAT) scales, generally there's a "safety" zone on either side of the platform (every set I've ever seen?). After getting your axle weights, you can pull around and drive up on the scales with one side of the coach on that "safety" zone, and get a second set of weights that can be used to give you your 4 corner weights. Just subtract the second set of weights from the first set.

I drove over there to check it out and the scale sits level in the middle of a paved lot. I explained to the operator what I wanted to do and why and they were fine with it. They just weren't accustomed to doing anything other than total weight of their moving trucks, but when I explained they completely understood and were happy to help. I'll let the OP have his thread back now and suggest to him he look for a local moving company. He might have the same easy outcome I did.

Thank you Doug,
I'll give them a call. Pete's has a large service shop in Corona, maybe they have a scale there.
