Every year Weights and Measures checks prepackaged fresh items for accuracy in weight or count and to make sure you are not paying for the packaging.
Our certified Metrology Lab provides professional services to all types of businesses across the country to attest to the accuracy of weighing and other measuring equipment, from the smallest to the largest.
We provide tips on what to consider when buying or measuring firewood, such as to deal with a reputable business. Our firewood section has all the details.
The price of gasoline may sometimes be high, but we check gasoline stations all across the state to make sure that you are getting that full gallon of gas you are paying for. We also check for octane and purity. Look for our sticker on the pump.
