Parcel Scales

Inscale UK supplies a wide selection of digital parcel scales for weighing packages, from small envelopes and boxes right up to the freight shipping crates for heavy items.

What is a parcel scale?

Parcel weighing scales, also called postal or shipping scales, are robust, light-industrial platforms or bench scales used for weighing small packages up to 32kg. They have a sturdy construction required for rigorous daily use and a durable, generous sized top pan for easy and accessible weighing. Larger platform scales or industrial scales, such as the Adam's CPWplus are also used for weighing larger boxes and crates.

Parcel scales are used in a wide range of industries from small home businesses to check the weight of packages before they are posted to detemine postage prices, to large-scale transport and logistics operations, which require oversized robust industrial platforms for weighing large quantities of goods prior to dispatch.

Carriers will often give special deals for the bulk shipping of parcels in a sack or a cage; hanging scales and large floor industrial scales such as Adam's PT platform scales are often used in this type application. The PT is a non-slip, mild steel floor scale that can be combined with Adam indicators for accurate checkweighing, parts counting and accumulation weighing applications, ideal for large industrial-scale warehouses, transport, logistics and distribution centers.

We also stock a selection of UK trade approved parcel scales for selling packaged goods by weight, as well as IP-rated scales offering advanced dust and waterproof protection. Please contact us if you have any questions about parcel scales or postal scales, our sales team will be more than happy to assist you.

Parcel Scales Help

Q: When should I use a parcel scale?

A: All shipping carriers and the Post office use some variation of parcel scale in order to calculate the shipping cost of packages. The weight of a package dictates the delivery cost, and it is therefore vital to know the weight of your parcels before delivery in order to avoid unexpected charges. For this, trade approved parcel scales are used to ensure that the package weight is recorded accurately and efficiently. Parcel scales could even save you money.

Q: Who uses parcel scales?

A: Many businesses require a parcel scale to detemine shipping prices. Postal offices are the most obvious users of these scales, however home businesses may also use parcel scales for calculating shipping costs prior to dispatch. Transport and logistics companies may also require larger parcel scales for checkweighing large crates, boxes and products to ensure they are the correct weight before being shipped.
