Postage scales

Any recommendations for postage scales that can handle over 5kg please?  (Preferably up to 8-10kg just to futureproof the purchase, but 6 would be okay.)

I used to do the 'weigh myself then weigh myself with the parcel' trick but now that pulls all the muscles in my shoulders and across my chest.  And smaller parcels are a nightmare to get on our small kitchen scales without completely covering the readout.

I don't mind spending decent money on them as we're hoping to get a wiggle on with selling a load of things in the coming months and years, so they'll get plenty of use.

The results I've seen from a search tonight have prices all over the place and I absolutely don't want to go cheap and useless, but equally don't want to pay more than I need to for a reliable set.  So I thought I'd ask for recommendations / wisdom here :)
