Speeding Up Our Receiving Department

When we realized that our shipping and handling department was slowing down production, I knew that I had to take action. Instead of leaving things as is, we decided to convert to a weighed systems, where we would count everything based on product weight. It was a big change, but we knew that it would dramatically speed things up. We invested in some high-end scales, and we had them installed the next day. Afterwards, our receiving and shipping department cut their times by half. This blog is all about using scales to improve your business, so that you aren't left wondering how to pay your employees.

Why Electronic Scale Rentals May Be The Better Choice For Your Business


If your business requires the use of large industrial scales, you might want to look into a scale rental. There are many benefits that may come from using electronic scale rentals. To find out more, you will want to read through the following information:

You Don't Have To Be Responsible For The Calibration Of The Scales

For those who are not trained in calibrating electronic scales, it can get fairly confusing quickly. This can lead to a lot of wasted time and the possibility of the calibration not being done correctly. Even if it is just off by a little bit, it can really alter your company's profits and production. However, when you are renting an electronic scale for your business, you will not have to worry about it. The delivery person will set up and calibrate the scale for you once they get to your business with it. If you are using it as a long-term rental, you can have them come out to calibrate it again as needed.

You Aren't Responsible For The Repairs

There may be the occasional need for repairs to be done to the electronic scale. This can be difficult and expensive if you are trying to do it on your own. This is another reason why going with the electronic scale rental can be a much better idea. If something breaks on the scale while it is at your company, you will not be the one that has to worry about fixing it. Simply call the rental company and schedule a time for them to bring you a replacement scale that you can use while the first one is being fixed. It should be a quick and easy swap.

You Can Always Get A Newer Scale

As the scales get older, they will be more likely to break down or simply not run as well as they used to. When the rental company gets newer models of the scales in, you can rent one of those instead of what you currently have. You might have to pay for the upgrade, but the accuracy and the ease of use that should come with the newer electronic scales should be more than worth it.

Contact a local equipment rental company to see if they have any of the electronic scales that would work for your business. If they do, go ahead and get one reserved for as soon as possible.
