1 -75JGX084G 24" Oregon Full skip chainsaw saw chain 3/8 .063 gauge 84 DL | eBay

 

 

 

£33.55 on Frawley's ebay shop but you'll have to wait a week/10 days.

 

 

I suppose with import tax on top of that then robs one is about the same?

No import tax - spare parts

 

Any spare parts from the US are subject to import tax or VAT in this country, I believe...haven't checked, Imports from China are OK up to £20 and incur tax beyond that.

 

I have brought in parts from the EU, US and from China, China no problem but unless you make a purchase and the import duty is paid up front on US purchases, you will be hit with some form of duty and handling fee plus the sales duty in the country of export! EU is no issue at the moment down to trade agreements!

If you click on my link,add to your basket and then go to checkout you will see a little invoice - £20ish for chain,£13ish for shipping and £0 for import taxes.I've had 3 or 4 chains from Frawley's and never had any surcharges to pay.I think Miker on here has used them as well.

That is because you are using DHLs Global system which pays all import duty pre shipping so you don't get the handling charge and duty charge. I reckon it takes the local import duty off, applies the duty imposed of the country of import and is accepted by customs. I agree this works, you are actually paying duty but the handler is paying it for you prior to delivery rather than the PO stinging you for it prior to delivery.

 

The levels of duty are set my Government - paying the duty prior to shipping is the best way.....the other sucks!!!

Why not just get your skip chains from RobD and support a business our side of the pond?
