Do rental trucks have to stop at weigh stations?

Do rental trucks have to stop at weigh stations?

Rental trucks and weigh stations

At some point, you've probably noticed heavy duty trucks on major highways stopping at weigh stations and wondered why they have to stop and how they know when to go through them. If you’re planning on driving a rental truck for a household move, you may be concerned about what you’re required to do, too. You know your car can bypass them, but what about heavier vehicles?  

What is a weigh station?​

Weigh stations are highway checkpoints where weight and safety inspections are performed. Basically, they help keep our interstates safe from extremely heavy or unsafe trucks. While weigh stations are usually reserved for commercial vehicles, rental trucks moving household goods may need to stop, too. Whether or not it’s required depends on the weight of the truck and the laws in the state(s) you’re traveling through. Knowing which truck weigh scales to stop at will help you save time and avoid hefty fines.
