the TTW Story
The TTW story began in April 2021 when Shane & Sharon travelled from Darwin to holiday with Cam & Ang in the beautiful Carnarvon Gorge region of Queensland. Before setting off on this trip, Cam & Ang arranged for Dave Lewis from Weightcheck in Queensland, Australia’s most experienced and first dedicated mobile weighbridge operator, to weigh their combination to ensure everything was compliant and well balanced.
At the time, there were only a handful of mobile weighing companies established in Australia (none in the Northern Territory) and after seeing the process first hand, we saw an opportunity to establish a business offering boutique, customised and personal weighing services to Territorians.
In June of 2021, “The Territory Weigh” was born servicing Darwin and surrounding areas. We established the business with the assistance of Dave Lewis from Weightcheck who provided us with extensive industry leading training and knowledge. We are proud to be part of the Weightcheck (Mobile Caravan Weighing) family, which includes other operators around Australia (list below) who have also established their mobile weighing business with Dave’s assistance.
In January 2022, Cam & Ang began travelling Australia and saw first hand the challenges and issues facing many other fellow caravanners and travellers, particularly in relation to vehicle and caravan weights, loads and safety and the lack of quality and knowledgeable mobile car and caravan weighing operators around the country. Fellow travellers often lamented that they could not find anyone to weigh their setup professionally & often had no choice other than to go to a weighbridge and try and obtain the relevant numbers themselves.
In July of 2022, whilst in Darwin, and with the above firmly in the back of our minds and coupled with extensive feedback from clients we have been weighing for the past 12 months in Darwin including countless interstate travellers who could not get weighed in their home state because of a lack of quality operators, the decision was made to establish “The Travelling Weigh”, a truly mobile weighing service that would service regional and other areas right around Australia, where ever Cam and Ang are travelling at the time.
In December of 2022, we also established a product line offering to our clients in respect of items that we use and recommend on a daily basis, in not only our business but also in our travels. Products that are tailored to the caravan, camping and travel industry that are either light weight alternatives or functionally help make your life easier.
Where ever possible, we partner with Australian made and owned small businesses such as BOS Jockey Wheels, Dix Engineering (Mawby Hooks), Compgas (Composite Gas Bottles) and the like. We have been growing and adding to this ever since and we now offer all our products via our on line shop.
