Please leave the driving lane open. If you are loading material and need an empty weight you may pull directly on the scale.
The truck scale is located through the main driveway gate and to the left between the four yellow concrete posts. All wheels need to be on the scale plate on the ground. Semi access is also through the main driveway gate. Pull right onto the truck scale. Semi-trucks will be weighed front then back for total weights. Weights are read digitally inside the office.

Are you picking up plants? Did you bring a tarp?
If your new plants won’t fit completely inside your vehicle, exposed foliage should be tarped. Cover leaves to protect them from the ‘wind’ created on the drive home. When your plants arrive home they will benefit from a good drink of water. Sprinkle the foliage to cool them off. Hold plants in a shaded location until planting. Continue to water to maintain as needed before and after planting.
