Don't forget that even if you give a random weight, they will often use the bigger of the two weights : gross weight (what you get by weighting on the balance fully packaged) and volumetric weight (it's a weight computed from the package volume). Assuming you have a package measuring 18x12x6 weighting 3 Kg, the volumetric weight is often double or triple this. This is the reason it's wise to not get a package too big for nothing since you might be paying a lot for empty volume.
