Title: weigh bridge (or something like that)
Post by: sonoramicommando on March 02, 2016, 12:42:12 PM
I got given this fancy  ::) digital performance meter (Power Meter i-D) - I'm sure it's not very accurate but I figure it would be good for a laugh so I hooked it up. It seems this thing needs vehicle weight amongst other parameters to get it working.
Where would be the best place to get a car weighed (preferably for free, of course) fairly accurately?
Cheers,
Sam

The only people I know who advertise the service are Bonneys:

L.W. Bonney & Sons Ltd, Transport Operators in Penrose, Auckland ...
882 Great South Road, Penrose, Auckland City, Auckland ... Weigh Bridge Facilities -Onsite public certified weighbridge within metres of Southern motorway

But the big scrap metal dealers have them and all the rubbish transfer stations have them...

Used to - I am an Uber driver now. I would say most weighbridges would be accurate to one Kg which should do for your purposes
