What about Ta Bao-ing the bike back from Malaysia?

 

Anyone got infor on that?

 

I think it will be good to know in case of minor accident where the bike is damage, but we are not injuried and need to transport the bike back by train.

 

2nd this, want to know the details if anyone has any

:pray::pray:

there are a few chaps who do cross border bike transporting esp for those trackers at Sepang.

I once had a friend who had a problem 30km from the Malaysia- Thai border.

Sent a recovery van from Sg to there and back cost S$900. Bike is Ymaha FZ1S.

Up to KL = $450.

This is in 2011.

 

Recovery guy is Hardy 82034401 but not sure if he is still in the business or here

Hi Guys,

 

These are the last bit of info I have

 

-Now you can no longer send bike to the train station in woodland. Last stop in Johor.

 

-Jb train station is just next to city square and link by the overhead bridge.

 

-Take a few days (at the fastest speed) to reach Penang and Very often take a lot longer 8 days or so

 

-Unless you send kup kia, they likely cart your bike into a cargo truck bound for K.L and from there, train to Penang

(this could mean scratches and stuffs)

 

-They will tapow and wrap your bike for a small fee (with cardboard)

 

My last trip sending via train from Penang to Johor, they drop my bike seemingly

from the truck onto the floor I guess.

 

My windshield was broken, brake level gone, engine block air fins broken and leaking,

box scratch and lots of other damages. I was given a number to call KL, the supervisor.

I did not call :)

 

Also while sending from Johor, when u enquire like I did, you may be qouted estimate 8 days,

so you time your arrival in Penang and happily go book all your following hotel (fully paid)

On actual day of sending you can be told take 2 weeks to arrive cos its dependent on their load on that day,

so do time urself base on luck haha...and be prepared for hotel fees to be sacrificed

 

My opinion, unless you have a old and cannot die easily bike like mine and do not mind the scratches

and possible screw up, or when u break down L L have to send, please dont. I have visited another courier service

in Penang and saw many kups being sent and wrap the same way onto trucks (its opposite victoria guesthouse).

 

I never have any such problem with the train in Thailand.

Honda ..................and nothing else

Woo... thanks for the information bro!

 

Do you have any idea on the transport "time" require for bike in Thailand? Example, from BKK to Hatyai or BKK to KL?

Kindly read thru at least the intro section first before decide to post any comments.... thanks... :cool:

Thailand still can roughly estimate but u are still bound to the cargo train if it has space on that day to load ur bike up

together with you on the same train. I have taken with and without my bike, I went later, pick up some other day.

 

Hatyai to KL? Never heard of direct. I last read must disembark somewhere. Also once it hit penang, they may likely

put urs up on trucks and send to KL for transfer.

 

Bkk to Hatyai you can refer to this webby for estimate, not sure if they've change the timing or schedule.

eg see hatyai bangkok here http://www.asia-discovery.com/Thailand/trains/hatyai.htm

 

The rest of the time schedule u can calculate from here

http://www.asia-discovery.com/trainschedule.htm

 

Have you read this yet? http://www.seat61.com./Thailand.htm#.UV2ErzeMb3w

 

These are links i got when I last did some reading up, please ensure if its update as of today.

wow.. thanks bro! Will read them up! :)

 

*read finish per.. but.. kinda of sad that it's not really possible for bikes with person on train.. (the 3rd party venders said cannot)

(but got people done it before around 4 years ago.. but need more information) :p

 

But again, has anyone "tried" bringing their bikes on train from BKK to KL or butterworth? :p

 

Thanks!

Hatyai train service stops at BKK and you will have to re load into another train to Chiangmai.

 

Now there is no longer bike cargo service from Hatyai to KL.

 

Thanks bro!

 

But we can still chiong from BKK to Hatyai within 1 day.. (if time doesn't permit) up train all the way.. LOL..
