If I'm paying for a weight delivery (as opposed to a certain number of cubic feet or yards), and if my vehicle would be weighed before and after if I took delivery there myself, then why is it an affront to ask my supplier to show me a genuine before and after weight ticket for my load?
You are absolutely right, you don't get it. That's why I suggested you get the coal yourself, and weigh your vehicle/trailer elsewhere before and after getting the coal. That's the only way to be sure you aren't being cheated. To make requests to view the delivery truck weights before and after loading is, in my opinion, an insult to the people you are dealing with. It's the same as just telling them you don't trust them and you are sure they are cheating you. I wouldn't be surprised if you made a request like that and they told you to take a hike.
In my business if a customer wanted me to weigh a 50 lb. pail of floor cleaner before he bought it I would politely refuse, I don't want to do business with someone like that. The next call would be that the product doesn't do what I said it would.
Note to Greg:
Harmony generates a printout with the weights on it, signed by the weighmaster. Superior's is hand written and signed.
