Price of fridge (~240L in size incl freezer) delivered to Bangkok is $500 USD but then the brokerage firms want $400 to receive it (just in fees! There's no Thai duty on this item), and then one even wanted another $1500 to deliver it to Ranong!
The problem with imports is one has to go to customs then get the unit transported from the port then to the destination in Bkk
etc. Could be the brokerage cost is the same for one as it is for 10! BKK
to Ranong should not be that bad if it is the same company that goes daily to, say, Phuket.
