The preferred choice of trades professionals such as plumbers, electricians, carpenters and more, not mention extensive use across industries like agriculture, logistics and utilities, pick-ups are an iconic working vehicle. Rugged and suitable for off-road as well as on-road use, the large available in the bed of a pick-up provides a practical solution for running a business that needs to be on the move.

Compared to similar sized commercial vehicles such as vans, the payload allowance in a pick-up is relatively low. That makes having overload protection systems onboard all the more important to guarantee efficient, safe, legal use. At VPG Onboard Weighing, we understand this need and offer a range of solutions perfect for pick-up drivers.

Fueling Business | Safe, Legal and Efficient

The designed load limit on pick-ups is typically between 600 and 700kg, making it very easy to overload. On the other hand, particularly when used for deliveries and logistics, it is easy to underutilise the payload allowance, which over time eats away at efficiency. VPG Onboard Weighing offers solutions that combine overload protection and payload optimisation in easy to install, fit-and-forget units that offer convenience, ease of use, superb accuracy and reliability.

Based on a revolutionary inclinometer sensor that is at once lightweight and rugged, our systems monitor axle loads individually and focus on the 90-100% gross vehicle weight range - providing pinpoint accuracy when you need it most. Clear, intuitive displays ensure operators can easily control payloads right up to allowed limits without risk of breaching them. They are easy to retrofit and need no further calibration once installed. Plus, all our solutions support telematics integration, with modular systems that are compatible with modern communications protocols for easy OEM adoption.

VanWeigh units are worth their weight in gold!

Nick HatchettStores Supervisor, Booth Dispensers Ltd, UK

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.
