VanWeigh®  FAQ

Answers to the top questions about our popular VanWeigh System.


Is it a weighing system?

No, VanWeigh is an overload protection system which is accurate to within ±2.5% at between 90-100% of gross vehicle weight.

How often does it need to be calibrated?

Thanks to our patented "fit and forget" technology, VanWeigh does not require any further recalibration unless there are any physical changes to the vehicle.

Can it connect to other on-board vehicle systems such as telematics?

Yes, it has both serial RS232 and 3rd party CAN ports for connecting to other systems such as telematics, or even on-board OEM systems.

How long does it take to fit?

The system only takes around 4 hours to fit and calibrate if fitted by one of our engineers or approved resellers.

What size vehicles does VanWeigh suit?

VanWeigh is suitable for any 2 axle vehicle up to 7.5T.

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.
