I had mine weighed at the truckstop at the Seven Feathers Rally. It cost $10 to get the combo weight and it was free for the first reweigh.
They charge $2 for any above that. It is a good deal and I believe most truckstops are about the same price.

The Jubitz! Up on 99E just south of the Columbia. You also have to T/A and Loves out east on 94 in Troutdale. But as a trucker I must remind you that the hardworking truck driver is on a time schedule so please be respectful if you're wanting to scale you TV and 5'er separately. Some may get impatient....not me of course but some..haha

This retired trucker also adds to NOT disconnect truck/trailer or do any other adjustments to the unit while still on the scale as it could damage them. Drive off the scale first!

I live in southern California and found that truck stops could get pricey with all the weights I wanted, so luckily I found a moving company down the road where they weight moving trucks for calculating the weight of customer's goods they move. They charged me only $10 if did not need any kind of weight certificate and they allowed me as many weights I wanted (I did about 6 or seven and it was all $10). Since it's been about 7 years, I hope to go back and do it again just to ensure things are still good. Hopefully, it will still be $10.

I bring this up as an option in case you don't have a truck stop nearby. I recommend you call ahead just to get their cost and capabilities.
