Always weigh your parcel after it has been packaged and secured, to ensure the accuracy of the weight. For individuals, small parcels can be easily weighed on kitchen scales. If slightly larger, then bathroom scales should suffice. Pallet scales are best for businesses.


If the parcel is stood on the floor, the height is the measurement from the floor to the top of the parcel. The longest side will give you the length measurement and the remaining side the width.
