An industrial scale is one of many things you can buy online these days. However, just because you can doesn’t mean it is always the best thing to do. If you purchase an industrial scale online, such as a floor scale or heavy capacity bench scale, you’re risking potential issues. Every scale should be specific to the application so it is important to pick the correct platform size and capacity. Potential issues when buying online may be parts not being included, limited or no warranty, the scale and indicator are not matched and calibrated… and the list goes on.
It may be beneficial to buy an industrial scale through a certified scale calibration and distributor service for better results. Nevertheless, here are three disadvantages of purchasing an industrial scale online.
All The Parts May Not Be Included
When purchasing an industrial scale online, you may run into fake manufacturing sites or manufacturers selling their scales cheaply. You want to make sure you steer clear of the sites because most times, your order won’t come with all the parts it needs to function fully, i.e. no indicator, no home run cable to connect the indicator, power source. When purchasing your parts from a certified distributor, you are guaranteed to know what isn’t included in your purchase without any surprises.
Industrial Scales Won’t Come Calibrated
You’ll find that most manufacturers won’t calibrate your scales, which can make it difficult for you to get accurate results and use your scale to its full potential. Therefore, consider buying from a manufacturer that can provide you with the scale and calibration. Doing so will help save you money in the long run. Additionally, you must meet the requirements with all local, state, and federal regulations, so you want to make sure your industrial scale is calibrated correctly.
When buying your scale from an online retailer, you’re not always guaranteed customer service after your purchase. This is something that a certified manufacturer can provide you with, especially if any issues or concerns arise. Additionally, when you buy your scale from a local company, you’ll know what to expect and where to find their office for customer service.
