Post (not EMS) is cheaper.

Chances that she will actually get the things are higher with Kerry, especially if she has previously received things from Kerry, using the same address and phone number.

I sent a bicycle, boxed, from Chiang Mai to Chumporn in October. Kerry wouldn't take it because the box was slightly too big, by about 10 cm. I checked wíth the PO, too. Ended up getting the best deal from GreenBus. Maybe that company doesn't go to your destination. The point being, check with bus companies.

Flash Express is probably the cheapest option, no problems so far, usually arrives within 1-2 days

green bus charged me B900 to send a bike and all my belongings in three quite large boxes from surat thani to chiang mai. i had to get the consignment to the bus station and collect from bus station but it did arrive the very next day.

As far as I know, Kerry’s don’t really take bigger packages. 
Inter express logistics is your cheapest option, wether or not there is a depot close to you is another matter.

You are looking at less than 1/3 of price of Kerry’s - sister in law sent a glass display case and it survived - we were impressed. I have sent heavy crates of household items when moving - no problems.


They are more of an industrial style operation rather than domestic, like Kerry, so expect to take your gear to a warehouse somewhere and search for a person to help you, but they are reliable.

We use Flash. It is the cheapest and reliable, too.

The gf has posted (with the PO) motorbikes and couches from Phuket to Loei without problems. Can't remember cost, but surprised me with how cheap.  Plus or minus 1000 is in the ball park.

I need to transport a wooden crate 1.3 x 1.3 x 1.5 metres weighing 500 kg from Bangkok to Sisaket. Anyone got any ideas on an English speaking freight forwarder?

By the way I tried Inter Express Logistics, unfortunately too heavy, the limit they gave me was 70Kg. But service was great.

Express Mail Service. It's fast and registered and more expensive.

Use regular parcel service and don't forget your passport.

Good idea. I’m in Krabi so it would have to go to Bangkok first then be transferred over to a bus to go to Surin. Not sure if that’s possible?

Are you sending a bike or just boxes? It's a big difference.
