Recommended Posts

Just wondering what the cost would be to send a t-shirt from Thailand to the UK? Does anyone have a rough idea?

 

Also do you think its safe to send the odd fake item back as gifts to people?

My old man sends me stuff quite often, when he sent 6 or so football shirts i think it came to about 1500 Baht. If its just one then a bit cheaper.

 

Theres a couple of options, you can go with a company like DHL or UPS or you can use Thai post which is a bit cheaper.

 

Yeah no problem sending fakes.

i have sent back about 20 big boxes over the last 2 years and only 1 has not made it out of thailand lost in transit or should i say nicked by a local. i always send by thai post 3-5 day service and the price depends on weight.

its easy, say a football shirt is about 280 baht if its registered and express, that means it has to be signed for when it arrives and it gets anywhere in the world in about 7 days, the more you send obviously the cheaper it gets however bigger packages are subject to more scrutiny

I have sent packages many times from LOS to UK.

 

I always use the regular postal system and have never once had a problem. It is also considerably cheaper than using a private company such as DHL/Fedex etc.

 

The important thing to do is stipulate the value of the package to be under £17 (I think that is the threshold where UK Customs and Revenue will charge tax on it). If it's a lot more than that and you are insuring the post, make sure you stipulate "GIFT" on the form that is put on the package (you don't pay tax on receiving a gift).

 

As for fakes, it comes down to common sense. If you send a considerably volume over, they are likely to be intercepted by the authorities.

 

Prices, I don't know how much sending a couple of shirts over would be, but it's not much, around 250-300 baht Id say.

Be careful with the likes of DHL, Fedex etc

Last time i used them (OK, a few years ago now, so they might have changed their policy) they levied an arbitary Customs duty fee to be paid by the reciever. Even though it was clearly marked as under the dutiable(?) limit. They would have probably trousered the fee.

When i called them to enquire about it (i was the reciever) they said it was to "speed the delivery up so that it bypassed customs delays" I told them to fuck off and sue me for it

They sent a few threatening letters which i ignored and they stopped sending them after a few months.

Where is the post office in pattaya?

I may have a 10 kg shipment to make, it might be best to set up my dhl/tnt order in the uk first then just post in Pattaya.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
