Need help !!! Today I rented a 26ft. straight truck from Ryder & loaded it with rolls of carpet to bring to my new warehouse in CT. from my old warehouse in MA., Took RT.84 to get to RT 91 to my warehouse in CT, there was a weight station & open, pulled in & it ruined my day!!! This is the help i need, I had 10 rolls of carpet,each weigh 700lbs each,so thats 7000lbs., after weighing my truck (26ft straight truck-rated 25999lbs), they said it was overweight by 600lbs. & I got a fine. Do any of you know how much weight I can load on a truck like this one??? I was also hit with a fine for not having a DOT Medical Card, the truck is under 26,000lbs & Ryder rented it to my with my regular driver license, nothing about a DOT Card,plus I was told I didn't need one for a truck like this, Is this legal??? If anybody has some answers , I thank you for them. I think there screwing me, am I wrong?? For yrs., I used my e-350 14 ft. box truck carrying 8 to 10 of the same rolls with out a problem,so how can a truck twice the size & better built be over weight???
