As scale retailers, we know that scales can be expensive. Being expensive can be okay as buying the right scale is an investment that helps your business prosper, but the more you spend on a scale, the more reliable the scale has to be to justify the investment.
Unfortunately, scale buyers often don’t protect their investment by doing everything they can to maintain and service their scales. From truck scales to highly-specialized lab equipment, scales can and do break down and cease functioning even if they are the best in the market. Wear and tear happens to every scale in every field – and yet many scale users don’t view maintenance and service as a priority.
Expert scale service matters because your bottom line can be affected by an investment that goes south because a scale system breaks down and has to be replaced. What many of our customers have realized, painfully, is that the scale replacement cost could’ve been much lower if it had been a scale maintenance cost instead.
In this way, expert scale service and maintenance is an investment that protects your bigger investment in your weighing equipment.
Reducing the Cost of Errors
Scale service doesn’t just protect your investment; it helps you reduce the chance of error that can cost your business thousands of dollars.
If your scale isn’t performing optimally, and there’s an error or miscalibration that costs you money due to inaccurate weighing, you can lose a lot of money because each transaction or weighing adds up. What may be a small, relatively-insignificant mistake by itself will snowball into a serious dent in your bottom line.
Ongoing maintenance and service from expert scale technicians can eliminate the risk and cost of errors by ensuring your weighing systems are properly kept up.
The best scale maintenance experts take great care to understand you, the customer, and your business needs and how the scale fits into them. They take the time to carefully inspect all the critical components, from the major to the minor, to ensure that every piece is operating properly. And they know that even a small misadjustment can lead to big, costly problems.
Find a trusted service partner who will take the time to do a thorough, meticulous job and you’ll be able to protect your investment and reduce the potential of expensive errors.
