Truck Scales

We offer in-ground or above ground NTEP approved truck scales with either steel top or cement top options. Our truck scales are considered the benchmark for ruggedness and performance in heavy use applications.

Features & Benefits:

  • Long-life steel or concrete construction will last for decades
  • We put tremendous focus on the foundation construction
  • Rigid design prevents excessive movement, which increases useful life
  • Our experience keeps your weighing nightmares at bay
  • Decades of life are possible with proper maintenance

Truck Scale Features:


I am the project manager of the recent installation of the truck scale here in Le Mars, IA. I am contacting you today to say ‘thank you’ for having Allen on your staff. The purchase and installation of our new truck scale has been a great success and working with Allen is why I think it went so well. His attendance at our pre-construction and post-construction meetings was outstanding. His presence during the installation of the scale as well as the later installation of the controls was also top notch. Allen made me very comfortable in knowing that everything was being handled by him and made my job considerably easier. There is no doubt in my mind that I would definitely consider Vande Berg for any future scale needs.

Are you buying a scale or a foundation for your future?

This is really the question you should be asking.  The core issue is our experience history, our experience in how to locate a scale, our experience in making it convenient for you, our experience with the materials used in our foundation, our experience with the type of foundation for the environment, and lastly, our experience with a quality weighing device. Cheapest is NOT the best value in the long run.

Why buy a VBS Truck Scale?

We have been servicing and selling truck scales for over 40 years. We have seen it all. We know the qualities that allow a truck scale to last for decades. We DO NOT sacrifice quality. We WILL NOT cut corners when it comes to building and installing a truck scale. See our list below of truck scale differentiators.
  • We install higher than recommended concrete rating (i.e. 4,000 PSI vs. 3,500 PSI)
  • We install additional re-bar resulting in less foundation cracking for longer life
  • Construct 12-in, or thicker, sidewalls vs. 8-in as is often found in other lower cost scales – you get a longer life
  • Install 6-in of clean granular back-fill (pea-rock is our preference) for better drainage, which results in less moisture under the foundation and therefore fewer settling issues
  • Incorporates a low failure rate load cell (see image directly below)
  • 10 year BridgeMount heavy duty weighbridge structure warranty
  • 5 year load cell warranty
