A scale ticket is the paper receipt from the facility that weighed the truck. The paper weight ticket is used to determine the net billable weight and it becomes part of the historical shipment paperwork. Carriers are obligated to only use certified scales operated by certified weighmasters for interstate shipments. While many moving companies have a truck scale on their premises, many times it is impractical to use them and alternatives will be found. Typical facilities that operate certified public scales that can be used for interstate commerce are sand and gravel pits, scrap yards, truck stops, landfills, concrete plants, grain elevators, or other moving companies. To be a valid scale ticket, it must have the following information; the name of the scale house, date, time, truck info, name and signature of the weigh master, and of course the weight amounts.
