    Actually you legally do need to if the signs stat that all trucks must stop or all trucks over blank weight need to stop.

    The Gross Weight of Budget trucks are 10' - 9,500 pounds, 16' -11,500 & 24' GMC truck 25,950 / International truck 25,500.

    So if the signs at the scales say trucks over 6 tons the 24' trucks would have to stop.


    Usually most weight stations don't even bother paying attention to rental trucks assuming the truck isn't overloaded. If you do get stopped by them you will need to show them your rental agreement and the registration located in a folder on the back wall of the cab. [Next to the seats or just behind the drivers seat on the window.

    Legally no, but since you still have to follow road weight restrictions many police officers can still pull you over for inspection. I recommend you go through the weigh stations, let them look at your weight and they will almost always just waive you through. You do not need a CDL or need to follow any of those regulations as long as all you are hauling is household items and not commercial goods.

    In California, the answer is a big "yes"...................there are signs at most of the weigh stations that read "rental and delivery trucks must stop when station is open" or similar signage.............................not stopping may result in a very expensive citation from the CHP
