Sending scythes out of the UK

If you would like scythes or related equipment sent to the EU or elsewhere in the world, please read the following information.

You may find it easier to go to a more local supplier, see below for a list of suppliers of reputable equipment.

As a non-UK customer you can place an order minus UK VAT (20%).

Customers in Republic of Ireland can order through the online shop. VAT is automatically removed and appropriate shipping charges are calculated at the checkout.

For all other non-UK customers you will need to get in touch and I will send you an invoice, payable online or via bank transfer.

Likely shipping rates to the EU are £5 – £45 depending on the size of the parcel, worldwide is likely to be more. We ship non-UK parcel with UPS (blades and full scythes) or Royal Mail (small parcels).

If you would like to order, please get in touch and we can work out a likely cost with you.

Before delivering your parcel, the courier company will be in contact to arrange payment for any taxes, customs charges or fees that are due, plus any handling charges they make for clearing the parcel through customs.

Sales Tax will be payable at the rate charged by your country. This will be calculated on the full cost of your parcel, including shipping costs.

Customs charges vary depending on the country of import and the items purchased.

There are several additional charges that MAY be made, which vary country to country.

  • Tariffs may apply depending on the items in the parcel (usually a small % of the value of the item in question eg 1%). Most hand tools do not attract a tariff in the EU, but please check your local regulations.
  • Some EU countries charge an importation fee on items brought from outside of the EU

EU and worldwide Scythe Suppliers

Here is a list of EU and worldwide suppliers of Austrian style scythes.

It may be easier to go to one of these suppliers in the first instance and come to us for the parts you cannot source elsewhere.

If you know of any suppliers of good quality scythes that I have missed, please get in touch and I will add them.
