Tree work in Spain.

Recommended Posts

Got a weeks tree work booked in Madrid in a couple of weeks.

Tried absolutely everything to arrange taking our own saws over on the plane but there is no way. Even drained and purged of all fuel and oils, the airline is not having any of it.

So it’s looking like we will have to hire the saws over there. These are best our people over there can find.





(They are better than what we had last year!)

Just wondered if anyone has had any experience of hiring saws in Spain?

I know they are non existent in The South from when we went last year.

Long shot I know.

I did think of that but we already have all the saws we need over here. I tried to get Fedex to ship ours out to Spain but they wouldn’t touch them.

My parents once had a load of stuff off their boat shipped back after it being sold. It was a man and a van type set up. He charged by volume/estimated wait sat on a pallet. Once in England, he did the reverse to keep the costs down.
There might well be a similar service you can find. Maybe have a chat with a local boat yard/marina.
(Don’t know how local that is to you)

Ah! It’s not the fact it’s a chainsaw it’s the very fact it’s a small petrol engine (with the risk of petrol vapours being released) that puts it on the banned list. According to regs there are special provisions but the airline said no and weren’t having any of it.
