[Info] In case of breakdown in Malaysia / Thailand


Recommended Posts

Hi tourers, was wondering what numbers to call in the event of bike breakdown, mishap in thailand. Anyone got a compilation of numbers of companies providing tow services in thailand? Advice needed. Any such thread in existance here? No hits on search.

P-plate should be an attitude to safety and riding. There's always more to learn.

In the event of bike needed to tow back to SGP, you can try looking for any of the passenger vans provided the height of the bike is not high (e.g R1, CBR900s etc). They can modify & remove the seats to allow the bike in.

 

But then the price to pay can be quite ex.

 

Steps to do a proper KNNBCCB with middle finger.

 

1. Bow down slightly, looking intensely at objective

2. Like a raging bull, hop and jog slowly towards objective

3. Take your left palm and slap it hard on the right mid-arm with a SLAP!

4. With charisma, raise right arm, whilst showing middle finger (with left palm trapped in bend right arm)

5. Shout! KNNBCCB

Just call a Singapore tow truck no. They will get their Malaysian counterpart to tow your bike to the 1st or 2nd link checkpt. From there, the Singapore tow truck will then transport your bike to the workshop of your choice. Got to pay and pay.

 

If the distance is not too far, say before KL, the Singapore tow truck may even drive up all the way to Malaysia and tow your bike back. Once on a trip 1 year ago, the Singapore Bike Ambulance went all the way to Ipoh and tow the bike back to Singapore.

 

A cheaper alternative is to get the Malaysian tow truck to tow it to the nearest town KTM railway station. From there, ship your bike back to Singapore by rail. Then, get your Singapore tow truck to tow it to your workshop.

 

Whatever it is, if your bike breaks down it is an expensive affair.....$$$$$$$$$ So, before you go, try to make sure your bike is in tip top condition. Hope my explanation helps...

Finally if you are stucked not too far away and you are with other bikers, one way is to get your friend to tow or 'push' your bike to the checkpt.

During the recent bike festival held near kallang leisure mall, one of towing company call bikebulance had a towing truck there. The head of the team say that they offer towing service from Malaysia to Singapore. The cost is rather stiff and it best to prepare your bike before you travel up North.

 

In the event that there is a breakdown, try to tow it to a nearby shop for repair, it will be very much cheaper for you if you can get it done.

 

In case you are really struck there, call bikebulance : (65) 64255333, they operate 24 hours service. They will either send one of their truck up or they will contact their counterpart to tow your bike.

 

If in the event that they use their Singapore truck, the basic cost will be $300(fixed, is to pay for the Malaysian custom). Then for every km travel in Malaysia they will charge $1.

 

That said, the min cost to tow from Melaka will be $300+ the distance from Singapore to Melaka and back, ie more then $500.

 

So make sure you do up your bike well before venturing up.

Madness.

 

Isnt it a better idea to get back to Spore, get a van, drive back to bike and bring the bike yourself?

 

I cannot imagine getting stuck further up north, how?

Esp with some internal damage and if your bike is a not a run of the mill model then how?? omg...........

Most people go through life following the crowd.

 

Others think for themselves.

 

They go their own way.

That the mininium market rate for towing from Malaysia(JB) to Singapore. If so near at Larkin, ask a friend, using a rope to pull. Tow to causeway and then call for towing service at the custom. This is much cheaper.
