Fitting and Advice Service

Can’t get on a scythe course but want a bit more help when choosing and setting up a scythe?

If you book this service we will spend time with you discussing your needs, then fit a scythe to you and give basic instruction on use so you’ll be ready to mow when you get home. See here for more details.
We can accept payment by cash or card.

Equipment is also available for sale at the end of each scythe course. Course participants have the chance to buy a blade that has been prepared and edge peened by Philip at no extra charge, .


Postage

Postage to mainland UK is shown in the table, right.

Postage to Remote Postcodes (eg Highlands and Islands) is the same as mainland UK except for parcels containing a snath. These cost an additional £9 due to surcharges made by carriers on long parcels.

Postage to Northern Ireland has increased markedly post Brexit. We are currently reviewing prices and we will try and keep them as low as possible. Currently Royal Mail parcels are the same as mainland UK but there is an additional cost of £6 on the postage of medium parcels (most blades) and £14 on parcels containing a snath.

We can post to Republic of Ireland and most of Europe. Please see here for more information.

For carriage to other countries please contact us for a quote.

Parcel containing a snath, eg all scythe kits, are very long.
They cannot travel on the conveyor belts at the courier depots so we get charged an additional Manual Handling Fee.
For this reason we have to make an additional post and packaging charge on top of our usual rates.

In the interest of saving van journeys, we try to arrange for parcel to be collected from us twice a week for delivery, usually Mondays and Thursdays. Orders need to be received a minimum of one day in advance of the collection days to allow time for packing.
