Buying a used pickup in Thailand

Recommended Posts

i got a used ford ranger high raider 2500cc 340.00 year of the model was 2010, i got it in March 2014.

Sold it in April 2016 for 320.00 with 4 months insurance.

All in all a great truck and not at all expensive for part and service from Ford.

Paid for 2 services new pads and rear shocks..

I'd easily buy another as it felt safe and it was great for driving around Thailand and heading up to Udon which we did many times hitting 120 to 140 KPH at 1600 to 2000 baht per round trip depending on the 140 KPH

This was a long wheel base short cab ( smart cab ) which allowed us to put two bikes on the back and still close the tail gate which you will get a fine if your tailgate is down on the toll way...

Did you buy off an individual or a used car lot?

From a used car lot in Bangkok and easy to beat them down on price as they have hyper markets for used cars with not many customers.

Around here in Bangkok:-

I think you have a service called parkers in the UK it's like Kelley blue book in the USA for used car values. Guess such a thing doesn't exist in Thailand and you need to just shop around?

Compare the milage to the wear inside and look for over spray on any rubbers, ask for the service card and call the company to check the service records.

Any car sold in BKK mainly will be on BKK plates so you will need to take the car to register the new owner then request a moment from bangkok mo chit transport office then after 2 weeks take the car to your local transport office and register with new plates for your province,.

First year was free on my Toyota 2.5 Turbo Hilux Sportivo, 2nd year was 18500 baht and this year I have just paid 16965 baht which I consider a good deal. I have been offered better deals but have been happy with the service I have received. My insurance is with Toyota's insurance company which probably makes it more expensive but as it has been seamless and headache free I am ok with that.

Got to admit I am surprised with Phil's 19,000 as my pick up cost 880,000 baht new after a 53,000 discount.
