PostSubject: Options for shipping suitcases from Bali (Ubud) to Lombok (Sengiggi)   Fri Sep 03, 2010 9:23 am

Four of us will arrive in Bali from USA, then travel to Jogja and then to Lombok.

We want to travel light to Jogja from Bali. Can anyone recommend companies in Denpasar that will ship couple of suitcases by ferry to Lombok?

Ideally I would like the suitcases to be picked up at our hotel in Ubud and delivered at Holiday Resort in Sengiggi, Lombok.

Josi, just a suggestion, but why don't you ask Holiday Resort to arrange it for you. They are bound to deal with domestic courier service who could do this.

There are several courier companies that I've used in the past to do pick up/deliveries from/to Bali Lombok, but it is a while ago now and I don't recall any of the names or have any contact details. Mentioned because at least you know it's possible. It is also not too expensive.

Your request is the sort of thing a good hotel should be able to assist with.

GAJAH GOTRA is who I used to move some stuff to Bali before and was planning on using for the move back to Lombok. So you have saved me having to fish out their number - thanks Josi.

I will be waiting for Made to call them to ensure that I do not get any inflated prices as I will be sending a lot of things back to Lombok with them. Once we have made the call next time Made is in Lombok I will post the info.

PostSubject: You will be billed for the service   Mon Sep 06, 2010 8:22 pm

Dear Ms Fun Trecker,

We the Bali residents are always interested in welcoming Australian visitors and strive to make their visit a memorable one. We would rather they travel light and enjoy the stress free life in our part of the world.

While we make every effort to make you happy, there is also a small charge for the service we provide. Can you please give your Credit Card and PIN number so that we can bill for our services?

We want to assure you the bill will be reasonable. It will be equivalent to the cost of your Sunday brunch or the cost of a your famous hamburger.

At your service: P.T. Informasi penyedia untuk Barat

Hi Josi

I just called Gajah Gotra they wont pick up one or two items. You have to bring them to the office in Denpasar to send and the price depends on the size. But to give you an idea for my move we will get a whole truck and as much as we can fit in it for 6.5 million.

Made called them a few days later just for comparison and they have quoted him 5 million for the move. So will be going with that quote Wink

PostSubject: Rate per suitcase   Sat Oct 09, 2010 9:05 pm

Rps. 50,000 per suitcase from Bali to Holiday Resort in Lombok
.


This information is obtained by the Resident Manager of the hotel where we will be staying in Ubud, Bali.

He did not find out if the rate is for pick up at Ubud hotel. I suspect I will have to deliver the suitcases to them in Denpasar.

PostSubject: Transportin Suitcases   Wed Nov 17, 2010 5:16 pm

I may be way out of date for you now but...

We use Gajah Gotra all the time and they are reliable and a good option. However I would never send suitcases via them (unless they have another service just for more fragile things, like suitcases - seems unlikely doesn't it) - it;'s like art work or a jigsawpuzzle the way they get stuff in. I have been to their depot in Bali -it is a super efficient truck packing operation, but if you want your bags to be at the bottom of 20 tonnes of wood/iron (probably ours) and other materials, then go for it.

If you have drivers and porters just take stuff on the plane. Wings is charging under 6,000 per kilo. That seems like a bargain to me. (But note that Wings has a limit of 15kg checked in luggage per person before they start charging excess baggage. Although if you are polite to the check in staff they are pretty good at allowing 20kg's.)
