{Pros and Cons}


Not at all expensive for an approved balance
Very reliable, I can confidently say that we never get these returned faulty, unless they have bee dropped or seriously overloaded.


It has to be ordered especially (which takes a few days) to be calibrated for the area (postcode) at which they will be used. They can only be, legally, used at that location as approved scales.

{Legal + Delivery time}
These are calibrated ("adjusted") by a Trading Standards Weights & Measurements technician to allow for variations in gravity. Gravity varies from place to place. You must give us the location (the postcode) at which these will be used. They will then be calibrated for that postcode. They must not be used (for buying by weight) at any other postcode.

Because these have to be calibrated to a postcode, they are 'Special Order' (not 'stock') items and CANNOT be returned if unsuitable.

Calibration takes about 7 days. If you paying for next day delivery, we will send it on a next day delivery service. But you will still have to wait the 10 days for calibration.
