BulkWeigh FAQ


How accurate is BulkWeigh?

BulkWeigh is accurate to within ±1% of payload throughout the vehicle's weight range.

Is there a phone app in case the driver has to exit the cab during loading?

Yes.  There is a wi-fi app available to allow drivers/operators to remotely monitor the loading of the vehicle.  There is also a handheld radio unit (the 511 FreeWeigh) for customers who cannot use mobile phones.

How is the system calibrated?

The system is calibrated by means of a simple phone call to a member of our service team who will walk you through the simple process.

Can the system be connected to other on-board vehicle systems such as telematics?

Yes, it has an RS232 serial port for connecting to other systems such as vehicle telematics.

Does the system have a printer?

Yes, there is an option to include a printer if you wish.

Can I fit the system myself?

BulkWeigh is fitted between the vehicle's chassis and its body, so we recommend you approach a vehicle body builder for this as it may require additional fabrication work.  If you contact us we can recommend one to you.

Is the system approved for charging by weight?

No.  You need our LFT system if you intend to charge customers by weight.

Can the system record multiple collections or deliveries?

Yes, our Load/Deliver function allows you to record multiple deliveries and collections as well as running totals using the optional printer.

VanWeigh units are worth their weight in gold!

I have just ordered our fourth VanWeigh system in two years for our growing fleet of VW Crafters. VPG Onboard Weighing fitters are polite, courteous and well trained in their knowledge of the units being fitted. Vehicles are left clean, tidy and ready for work. 

The VanWeigh units themselves are worth their weight in gold. There is no fiddling about to add up weight, just load the vehicles and the unit does the rest. Drivers can see straight away if they need to alter their load to spread the weight.
