Anyone recommend weighing scales big enough to weigh fully packaged large sets (like Pet Shop, Simpsons House etc)? Thank you.

Tried and true and will not fail you during a power outage.

If your in UK, Costco sell these postage scales which are pretty good size / units and increments for the price (think is is approx £20 instore?).

 Thanks for the link. I've just ordered those. 36 pounds plus 6 pounds postage to Ireland. I'm happy to have them as I've just started to sell my collection and want to be able to quote shipping etc like all the wise people on here.

Not able to contribute but as a seller I appreciate Swiss Post's simple system. One price for 0-2kg, 2-10kg and 10-30kg. Small sets go into the 0-2kg and larger sets goes into 2-10kg, almost never need a scale.

Get one which the reader can be moved away from the scale.  This makes it easier to see the weight of sets with wider boxes like UCS Star Destroyer. 

Something similar to this (I do not use this brand, it just the first 1 that popped up):

Great advice thank you. I do own 1 UCS SSD and I'm torn between selling it and keeping it 🙂 I'll stick with my original Amazon order for now and perhaps use my phone to take a photo of the reading if I can't quite see it.

For the scale I linked, once the weighing is comolete, there is a audible beep and the scale holds the display once item is removed until you press the reset button.

Been using this one for 5+ years.  The remote reader is the exact reason I got it.  100% satisfied with this model.
