It’s no exaggeration to say the output and by extension success of a business can hinge on the maintenance of its weighing scales.

- Bench Scales
- Compact Bench Scales
- Counting Scales
- Check Weighing
- Retail Sales
- Weight Indicators
- Axle Pads
Our repair service has many benefits to you and your company, such as:
If you are based in any one of Kent, East Sussex, West Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, Dorset, or the Berkshire regions - including South London and the M25 border - our team of expert engineers can travel to your premises, resulting in shorter turnaround times.
If faced with an emergency, as in your weighing scales are unusable, we'll aim to have an engineer on site within eight hours.
If you're outside of our usual radius fear not, we can still assist you, shipping your scales to our Unit in Chichester, West Sussex. Here one of our experts can oversee essential repairs. Or if you’re local to our sister company MK Scales in Kettering, Northamptonshire they can also provide assistance on our behalf.
Our team has access to a wide range of spare parts for industrial weighing scales, including some of the industry's biggest names.
This reach allows our technicians to change any parts that are unrepairable in double-quick time. This is also cost-effective for you as it can be cheaper to purchase the spare part rather than purchasing an outright replacement.
Having a fully trained, dedicated team of expert technicians on standby is invaluable. They’ll make sure your scales are functioning again in no time, whilst adhering to national standards and regulations.
Once repaired, all weighing scales are given a health check and recalibrated in accordance with the UK Weighing Federation’s Calibration Code of Practices.
If your equipment is Trade Approved and the seals have been broken in light of a repair or recalibration, this will necessitate reverification.
Our experts will carry out several tests to that effect, which can be found in EN45501:2015. All relevant paperwork will also be issued for your records.
Our full trained team of experts have regular training to make sure they are certified, and we are committed to continuous learning of weighing technologies.
We are accredited to provide scale calibration services to nationwide industry standards.
If your weighing scales need to be taken to our workshop as they cannot be fixed on-site, Solent Scales also offer a hire scale service to ensure you can keep outputting in the short-term.
