Looking to buy a postal scale online? Check out our range of postal scales here at We supply digital and analogue postal scales with various capacity and weighing increments. 

When sending out post it is important to calculate the postal rates to avoid overpaying or the item being returned. Postal rates are generally calculated by the weight and dimensions. An Post categorises post into four distinct groups, Letter and Postcard, Large Envelopes, Packet and Parcel. 

At Hunt Office we have a large range of postal scales so you can accurately weigh post and parcels to ensure you are paying the correct the amount of postage. Many businesses have franking machines to save time and have the capability of printing their logo on the postage labels. With franking machines the user inputs the correct postage rates into the machine. However businesses who do not accurately weigh their post can end up overpaying which can be a considerable amount throughout the year. 

The postal scales in our range come from Salter and Wedo which are well established brands among scales manufacturers. You can choose from compact letter or small parcel scales which hold up to 10 kg and have increments ranging from 1g to 100g. We also provide larger postal scales which are ideal for large parcel and heavier items – such scales can hold up to a maximum of 2500 kg and have 100g increments. 

How to accurately weigh your post or parcel 

• Like every product, when buying a postal scales always read the manufacturer’s instructions. 

• Always place the postal scales on a level steady surface. 

• Hit the on button and wait for the scales to warm up, generally the scales are ready when it registers as zero. 

• Put the item on the scales and record the weight 

• Consult with An Post or your courier to determine the charges for your particular weight (you may also be required to measure the item.) 

Benefits of using postal scales 

• Saves on money - As many businesses and individuals over-estimate their postage costs for larger packets, postal scales can be a great investment and save you money in the long term. 

• Saves time - With the popularity of eBay many individuals spend a lot of time in queues at their local post office so their package can be weighed. By having your own postal scales you can do this from the comfort of your own home.

  "This scale has definitely helped me cut down on postal charges. My day in work consists of a lot of preparing items to be shipped and this scale has been a brilliant addition to my preparation routine.
