Vinny,

My wife and I moved from the UK to Hua Hin this year and we used a company called JVK Movers. Although based in Thailand I dealt with a couple of Brit guys called Paul and Craig and they made the whole experience completely hassle free at a very reasonable price. I would strongly suggest you get in touch with them on the email addresses below.

Our stuff should arrive in Thailand next week - I'll report how we get on with that one.

Certainly when my daughter returned some time ago, they really tried to screw her for some tea money. In her case, the goods were only released when she tried to claim off the insurance as the goods had been effectively lost to customs. Her insurance company facilitated their release.

Fair comment Roundeyes,

I didn't have that luxury as my wife's a Brit. However, this company I used had very "creative way" around the "official import duty".................................

I can't recommend them enough and I can assure you I don't work for them and nor am I on commission................ lol

I'm talking over 7 years ago but all documents were in my wife's name for goods in the container and we paid the usual shipping costs but no import duty which can be as we all know pocket crunching. Don't think about bringing a car or motorbike however ... household goods only

Moving from Holland? Now I know you guys didn't do so well in the Euro's but washing your hands of the place is a bit extreme! :D

Can't help but hope the move goes smoothly for you. :cheers:

Is that a door to door service or did you have to pick up your goods from the port ?

Vinny,

We went to the "emigratiebeurs" earlier this year, where I have spoken with several international movers.
The best impression I got from "Waaijenberg verhuizers BV". ( http://www.waaijenberg.nl/) .

Complete door to door Vinny. They turned up at the UK house, packed everything we asked, containerised it, sent it to the house in Thailand and unpacked everything.

There's a website I used to go on where you can actually track the ship it all the way to Thailand too. Just not in the Indian Ocean as if we can do it, so can Somali pirates.................. lol

Regarding import duty, I thought I had read somewhere (just don't ask me where though right now :? ), that if you are moving to LOS on say a retirement visa extension, so long as your shipment arrives within 6 months of your arrival in country there is no import duty, or it's very minimal. If that's not the case, is there a set % rate applied to the value of the goods imported, or is up to the "discretion" of the customs official? :cheers:

For choosing a reliable moving company, it is necessary that you should have full knowledge about that moving company and reviews of their clients about that company.
