I shipped on the 16th Jan 2004
Jeewan Dhakal Eagle Eyes , found us, as his competitors had been phoning him for advice. Think This says enough!
Eagle Eyes Exports Cargo Service, PO box 10271, Thamel, Kathmandu (tel 977-1-4268236, mobile 981042663)
No Longer reduced rate over 500kg, Some other companies claimed there still was
Thai cargo rate per kilo $ 01.37
insurance rate per kilo $ 00.07
Dangerous goods $ 20.00
Air way Bill $02.00
Crate $55.00 (includes metal banding, some quoted this as extra)
My Air Ticket $225.00 +
(Airport tax, buy at airport 1000npr)
The grand total for me and my 250kg bike ( the 250kg include crate and 10kg pallet that Thai cargo put it on later) was $704.
In Thailand the costs are minimal 1.24B per kilo + 200B delivery orderfee+ 250B cargo terminal fee+ VAT @ 7 per cent so forfor me a total of 813.20B
At the Airport, go straight to Thai cargo office thay give you paper work to take to customs, There will be plenty of Shipping agents eager to help, but you dont need them once you find the right desk at Customs ( its personnal effects imports or something like that).
Once the Thai customs documents have been completed( 1 hour approx) return to Thai cargo, Cashiers dept. this time,pay up (5 mins if there is no Backlog)
Then go to warehouse 3,present your paper work to Thai, who will process it through customs here (another hour)At Least I think thats what was happening! and then you will be presented with your crate and porter with a crowbar. You can let him loose with it if you want, he helped me and was happy getting the rope the bike was tied down with.
Everyone was very helpful, even although I seemed to turn up at everyones desk as they were having lunch.
Hope this is of help
