If this was Ferrous Processing & Trading off of Collier Rd. then I just had mine weighed there 2 months ago too. Run your truck across the train car scale till its just the trailer on the scale. They announce over the loud speaker your good, walk upstairs and pay ~$10 for your slip and you're off to the SOS.

By law, a trailer may be towed without a license plate, using the most direct route, to a certified scale to have it weighed (MCL 257.216)
