im thinking if they pay by the pound for scrap, i wouldnt trust it. i would go to a certified scale. however, if it is used in trade it should be inspected by the state, not sure about your states laws though.

Go to a CAT scale at a truck stop.. They are Guaranteed to be correct.

Looking to buy again

I agree Stump...use a certified scale at a truck stop. I've used them many times in my cross country moves (Navy) and found them to be pretty accurate. Let us know how it tips out.
