Commonly used in industrial, commercial and domestic waste collection, skip loaders specialise in carrying small to medium sized loads over short distances. Even though the largest skips are modest in size compared to roll-off containers and other bulk haulage examples, the great variation in material they can hold can pose operators problems.

At VPG Onboard Weighing, we understand the importance of real-time overload protection monitoring to give drivers full control of what they are loading onto their trucks - essential when you can never be quite sure what a skip contains. Our on-vehicle weighing solutions guarantee accuracy, reliability and full transparency to keep operators compliant and safe.

Check Your Payload to Stay Legal

The contents of any skip you collect are simply unpredictable - it could be feathers, it could be rocks. A full load of dense, heavy debris could easily push your vehicle over legal weight limits.

Our inclinometer-based overload protection systems assure that your skip loader remains within legal gross vehicle load limits and the manufacturer’s designated safe GVW, measuring the distribution of load axle by axle. For legal-for-trade certification to support from-the-cab invoicing, or just if greater accuracy is required, we also offer load cell-based on-vehicle weighing systems that weigh your vehicle across the payload.

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.
