Storing luggage in BKK or getting it from A to B - even across to Laos

Recommended Posts

This forum seems to know everything so here goes:

I'm a rockclimber who also enjoys a stay in Bangkok or Pattaya amongst my climbing trips. This does regularly leave me with a problem: outdoor climbing requires lots of heavy gear which I do not always want to carry around or even take on a plane. So: who has some useful experience in long term storing/sending luggage to/from Bangkok.

Specifically for storing: where can I store a big duffelbag of gear safely for a few weeks or even months in Bangkok for a reasonable price? There are commercial luggage storing facilities available but they get expensive fast. hotels will store your stuff for maybe a week in advance of your stay - I've done that - but surely not for weeks or even months.

And for sending: I would like to get the afore mentoined big ass dufferbag from Bangkok to Laos (Vientiane) or at least to Udon Thani. (I would be traveling there the long way around and do not want to take the big bag myself) Any suggestions on services to use?

Last year I was coming in and out of Thailand a lot..and sometimes had too much stuff.

I was traveling to India always from Bangok or going back to Bali where I have a base.

I found when I was staying  at Ruamchit Hotel in Sukhumvit the staff were fine with me leaving bags ,I think longest time I left a bag was 6 weeks I would always give the staff a few hundred baht and another 100 baht when I returned ,always staying at least one night and picking up my  bag/bags .They were fine with it.

Location of the hotel is good too

From reading Lottellee Winna's posts on Pattaya Addicts, I know he leaves his golf clubs when he's not in town for a small fee at a Pattaya bar that organizes golf outings. Perhaps you could do the same with your equipment.
