Weighbridges are used to weigh vehicles and whilst most are for private use some are available for public use.
These weighbridges are known as public weighbridges and the operators have been approved by Trading Standards as public weighbridge operators. This means that they can weigh vehicles for members of the public, e.g. weighing their caravans for them, although they are entitled to charge a fee for this service.
