There are a couple of different scenarios to consider in the laundry business. If you operate a coin laundromat, then you may want to look at one of our coin counting scales which will make counting quarters much easier and faster. You also may want to look at our legal for trade price computing scale with heavy duty laundry basket.
Now, if you're a hotel or some other entity that weighs large amounts of laundry, then you may want to consider one of our platform scales with ramp. Don't forget, if you provide wash and dry and fold services at your laundromat, you will need a NTEP approved legal for trade laundry scale to weigh customers laundry by the pound.
Scales that are NTEP approved have been tested by NCWM to ensure they meet certain standards and requirements. In virtually every state in the United States, laundromats need their scales to be NTEP approved in order to conduct business over the counter with customers. Any time you charge customers based on weight you must have an NTEP approved legal for trade laundry scale. NTEP laundry scales have a Certificate of Conformance stamped on them. In addition to being NTEP approved, you will probably need to have your scales checked by either a local scale company or a state inspector.
