Hi Shaggy,


I did this a few years ago and it went very well. I found a removals firm in the UK Yellow Pages. They quoted me a price for shipping my stuff door to door. Also, they offered 3 months' free storage, which was handy as our house was being built at the time. They arrived one morning with a removals van, packed everything up in handy sized cardboard boxes and off they went.


When the stuff arrived in Thailand, the agent in Bangkok phoned to say there was 12,000 baht cutoms duty to pay. Once this was handed over, the goods were delivered to our now completed :-) house and unpacked for us. There were a couple of very minor breakages but nothing serious. It wasn't even worth pursuing an insurance claim. This was in 2005. I paid GBP1700, including insurance cover of GBP5000. This was for a maximum of 120 cubic feet of household effects which went as a part load - being way too little to fill a shipping container. Coming to Pattaya, I'd suggest having your stuff shipped to Laem Chabang, which is only a few miles from Pattaya.


Before you commit yourself though, be aware that you can buy good furniture here at reasonable prices. Or you can even get someone to make stuff to order.
