  1. PCX150 in need of love - Need some restoration

    4000 baht is okay for all restoration. I thought that was just for the red panels. There are some chromed parts that is in metal, i think, that needs some new chrome like the handlebar and its fittings. I will go and ask them next week. Thanks cocteau2x
  2. PCX150 in need of love - Need some restoration

    Thanks cocteau2x Is 4000 baht for just for the red panels (on a red/black PCX) or even all the black painted panels as well? Do they do the rest of the re-chroming and restoration work as well? One guy told me that the plastic panels could be repainted with some vinyl/plastic spray.
  3. I'm going to sell my 2012 PCX150 with only 3990Km on the clock. But it looks terrible and all the red plastics are sun bleached and has a white milky color. Possible to repaint or need to buy new ones? Chrome details needs to be polished or re-chromed, etc etc. Anyone who knows any skillful company/in individual in Pattaya/Jomtien who can restore it to almost "new" again within a reasonable fee?
  4. Is Social Security useful?

    I paid the social for 11 years as Director, and never used it. Almost 200,000 baht in total i think. Can I still get any advantages from it, even though I have stopped working do you think?
  5. Need a 800 sqm roof - Advice needed

    Seems to be a few professionals here as well who might be able to help. And I did, as you suggested, posted in a structure steel forum so we if any answers :-)
  6. Need a 800 sqm roof - Advice needed

    One supplier, with the best price, is suggesting trusses instead of I-beams. They say that it is much cheaper and easier to assembly well here on site. The saving is $6000. Shipping cost is the same they say, but it seems that trusses would require much more container space. Anyone here who can advice me here regarding this?
  7. GF hate to fly as she cannot depressurize her ears

    Great, the Toynbee maneuver, but with water in her month seems to work for her: fill your mouth with little water, close your mouth and nose and swallow the water several times until pressure equalizes. :-D
  8. Hi, GF hate flying as she cannot depressurize her ears and she gets a terrible pain. She have tried everything like nasal spray, chewing-gum, yawning but nothing works. Any suggestions or just head right away to hospital?
  9. Starting a new company

    25,000 baht seems rather low. I would like to know who to contact. I have been quoted everything from 57,000 to 280,000 baht for a company registration incl all (VAT, Social, one Visa and WP).
  10. Need a 800 sqm roof - Advice needed

    Getting quotations from China on a prefabricated steel building with sheet metal walls and roof for $35/sqm or $40/sqm for sandwich walls and roof with 2 normal door and 2 4x4m "garage doors". Anyone here who have order any similar from China and assembled here in Thailand?
  11. Need a 800 sqm roof - Advice needed

    Ok, playing around with a new software and using a more common roof design. Not sure if beams or trusses is the best way to build it in Thailand though. Added a 5x40=200sqm second office and storage floor as well. All parts bolted so it can be moved if needed as it will be built on a rented land.
  12. Unreliable law and bookkeeping firms

    Happy to help making you feel better about your self, if that is what you need. I am not native English so I may have difficulties expressing my self correctly in this, for me, foreign language. But what is so ridiculous about it? Yea it may be a whining post, but this is my reflection over the years. Yesterday I had a chat with a hotell owner who told me that his bookkeeping agent had urged him to pay 45,000 baht a few days ago for penalties for some late social securities payments. He got suspicious and he and gf went to the social security office, but there were no penalties issued to them. This had happen before as well but with smaller amounts.... Needless to say, but he is also asking around for bookkeeping agent recommendations.
  13. Do you have the same problems with law and bookkeeping firms as me? I have had 4 businesses in Thailand during my soon 14 years in Thailand. I have many business friends as well in Thailand within a wide range of different businesses, everything from Hotels, food production, software, to renting out oil-rig items. One thing that strikes me, is how we all constantly have problems with bookkeeping firms and law-offices. I have worked with a handful firms over the years NO ONE have delivered or they have been right up fraudulent, or even ran away with deposits/tax/soc payments or scaring/blackmailing/misinforms us to extract money from us. I hear and read the same story again and again from my friends and others. How can a whole business sector be so screwed up? In my home country I have been working with one law office and one bookkeeping office for 20 years. They always puts the customers first and maintains the relation with care. I'm going to register a new company again and asking my friends if they can recommend a decent firm to handle it for me..... No one would recommend anyone and mentions that they have the same problems as me and are also looking around for one to replace the current one. So, I emailed 8 agents found on Google, One week later 2 have answered with just a copy/paste answer with no regards of my questions, one quoted a 6-8 times higher than normal price (Almost 300,000 baht plus government fees for a 51% Thai / 49% Foreigner company with one visa and WP) and one answered with an engaged answer and with decent pricing and i'm hoping for this one to be good. I called another one (seems to be only Thais running it) of the ones who did not answered yesterday and they promised to answer my email today, but still (3:20pm) no answers. I have worked with some of the old sponsors here as well..... And no thanks. My friends with larger companies do not recommend outsourcing the administration at all but to keep it in-house and I agree. But that would be hard for startups. I had 3 great administration girls in-house before, but one got married and now work for her husband and the other two moved abroad, so I have to start from zero again.... So, Do you have the same problems with law and bookkeeping firms? Let us know. If not, please let us know who you are working with and for how long.

  15. Need a 800 sqm roof - Advice needed

    Yes, If designing concrete columns correctly, We might even be able in the future to mount a small crane/lifting device just under the roof if we want.
