Secure lock up storage

Is there anywhere that has secure lock up storage in Hua Hin? I do not need a big container just something to leave a few boxes, tools, suitcase etc. in for a few months.

Re: Tax residency in Thailand

There is another thread on this, can't remember the name, anyway I went to the Hua Hin Revenue Office on Soi 88 and enquired directly, I was told I only pay tax on income I earn in Thailand, any income overseas is not considered.

Re: Discount for new property projects

You just drive around you will see for sale signs all over the place, if no company name on the sign it is a private sale, take the number and phone. No agent is required but you should still get a lawyer.

Re: Requirements for retirement visa HuaHin

Yes it is done 1st visit if you provide everything they ask for, if you do not have something it will require a second visit. My last extension I had my bank letter with a date 1 day before my bank book update and immigration would not accept so I had to go back to the bank for a new letter. There a...

Re: Discount for new property projects

1% commission here no way, 4% up is standard. Agents do little apart from drive you to a location and let you look around, they have little if any knowledge of what properties have recently gone for in your local area. I am selling a property in Australia and the document I received from my agent ha...

Re: Requirements for retirement visa HuaHin

I don't think anyone is wrong it is just the chaotic way things are done here, it all depends which officer you are dealing with. As someone else said take copies of everything that may be asked for, it does no harm and at least then you can finalize with a second visit. When I first submitted my ma...

Re: LG HDTV Problem

I didn't really think it was the TV but their lack of customer support is atrocious.

I have tried the cable company and the wife is following up with them but they have still not attended. Very frustrating

I have retuned multiple times with no improvement, The signal strength is quite low for these channels at 9-12%, however the signal quality is 50% +...

Re: Immigration to introduce 90 day reporting online

5 minutes to do my 90 day report on Thursday at Blueport, just handed in my passport no further documents required. Far easier than trying on line unless you live a long way from an immigration office or have difficulties getting around.
