Knowledge is power. Your ability to make good decisions is contingent on you having access to solid, up-to-date information and there is so much available today for those
who want to stay ahead.

Thanks to Internet access and PEC Scales’ Help Center, knowledge is available 24/7, to assist you in gaining clarity on a variety of subjects that will help you in your
job/business. Our Help Center is our way of ensuring that you stay ahead of the game; provide you/your staff with sound operational advice and short cuts; educate you as to how to complete scale-related tasks, that you currently perform, faster and more efficiently; and introduce new functionality into your job/business operations, saving you time and money.

knowledge you have, the better the decisions you will make not only in your personal, but professional life as well.

Additionally, if you would like me to research or write about any particular scale-related topic/subject of interest for future posting, do let me know as I would be happy to do so. I can be reached at cspisto@pectools.com. I invite you to come back and click on PEC Scales’ Help Center often, as more articles of interest will be added on a regular basis.

Return Policies


Thank you for purchasing your product(s) from PEC Scales…we appreciate your business!

If you receive a defective or damaged item, please CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY at 310/787-4500 with details regarding the product and the problem. Upon receipt of the returned product, we will fully examine it and notify you via email, within a reasonable period of time, whether you are entitled to a refund or replacement as a result of the defect or damage. If you are eligible, we will send you a refund or replacement product. To follow up on the status of your Return, please contact us at the same telephone number as listed above.

Refunds and Replacement Products (if applicable)

We believe in our high-quality scale products so much that if you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, you may return it to us within 30 days from the date of delivery to qualify for a full refund, or replacement product. However, there are certain terms and conditions that must be adhered to, as explained below. We encourage you to read these, to best determine any of those that apply to your specific situation.

Returns shipped after the first 30 days will ONLY be eligible for PEC Scales Credit (which never expires). After 30 days, all sales are FINAL.

For Customer-Fault Returns (for example, accidentally ordered/purchased by mistake), the cost of the Return shipping will be deducted from the refund. Additionally in some cases, customers will be responsible for Return shipping AND any restocking fees that might be applicable. These amounts will be deducted from your refund.

If your Return is due to shipping damage, you MUST provide photos displaying the harm/breakage. Should the product arrive and you find that it is not working properly, please CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY so our PEC Scales technician can confirm that there is a quality problem. Please note that refunds will NOT be provided for a product with obvious signs of abuse; not in its original condition; is damaged or is missing parts for reasons that are NOT due to our error.

Additional Return/Refund/Replacement Instructions

To be eligible for a full refund or replacement product, all returned items must be in their original packaging (including any accessories, manuals and other documentation that was shipped with the product) and need to include the original packing slip to be accepted. Additionally, please include a copy of your invoice/proof of purchase and a contact phone number with your Return. We do NOT reimburse Shipping or Return Fees.

All Returns MUST include a Tracking Number (USPS, UPS, FedEx, etc.). Please provide us with the Tracking Number for your Return. Failure to do so may delay the processing of your Return or PEC Scales Credit.

Exchanges: We only exchange products if they are defective or damaged. In circumstances where you consider the item defective, CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY with details regarding the product and the problem.

Refunds/Replacements Permitted

Upon receipt of your Return, we will fully inspect it and notify you via email, within a reasonable period of time, whether you are entitled to a full refund or replacement product. If your request is approved, we will refund the purchase price using the original method of payment within 7 calendar days or send you a replacement product.

Refunds do NOT include any shipping and handling charges as shown on the packaging slip or invoice. Shipping charges for all Returns MUST be prepaid and insured by you. You are responsible for any loss or damage to the product during shipment. Additionally, we do NOT guarantee that we will receive your returned item.
