Expert Advice, Specialised Solutions, Education & Information
CHECK WEIGHT’s goal is to ensure caravan owners travel safely and legally on Australian roads by providing information, education and knowledge on caravan weights to owners, so they can load their tow vehicle and caravan with confidence and peace of mind.
CHECK WEIGHT Mobile Caravan Weighing is the premier mobile caravan weighing service in NSW. Established by Jeff DeAth in 2019 with its prime focus being to “help caravan owners make sense of caravan weights” and thus ensure their caravans and tow vehicles are legal and safe. The original mobile business was based in Port Stephens / Newcastle NSW but grew to currently service from Lake Macquarie to Port Macquarie – Newcastle to Muswellbrook.
The CHECK WEIGHT – SYDNEY WEST franchise was opened by Jason Wadwell in 2022 servicing the Sydney metropolitan area (main focus SYDNEY WEST but can travel or meet all Sydney caravan owners).
Jason has been well aware of caravan weights for several years, owning a Toyota Prado and towing a Jayco 17 ft caravan since 2016. The caravan purchased after the progression from swags, tents, soft floor and hard floor camper trailers owned over the previous 15-20 years.
Specialising in training, compliance and technical roles and he understands how important it is to be fully compliant with current relevant legislations and standards.
With these roles he has always enjoyed helping people and giving them the understanding to do their job. Jason has seen a lot of incorrect and misleading information being passed around through social media and around the campfire, and is looking forward as a CHECK WEIGHT franchisee to help people with the correct knowledge to be legally compliant and to travel safe and enjoy being on the road in this great country.
As public weighbridges are not set up for caravan weighing, and didn’t provide any follow up information or education, CHECK WEIGHT – Mobile Caravan Weighing helps Caravan owners make sense of caravan weights, and determine if they are complying with the law.
More than just weighing, CHECK WEIGHT – Newcastle / Hunter & SYDNEY WEST – Mobile Caravan Weighing provides owners with a comprehensive report on their vehicle and caravan weights, and provides education and information on the effect of weight with their unique program of moving weight around the caravan to show the effect on caravan balance.
Although Mobile Caravan Weighing is the main focus, CHECK WEIGHT – Newcastle / Hunter & SYDNEY WEST can weigh 4WD’s, Mobile Homes, Horse Floats, Boat trailers – in fact almost anything on wheels and a few things that aren’t !
CHECK WEIGHT is not a registered public weighbridge, but provides caravan and vehicle owners a convenient way to know and understand their actual weights so they can determine their own circumstances.
