    Bought a used car in Bangkok last week. I live in Pattaya, I’ve bought cars in Thailand before and don’t recall paying that much. I’m not so bothered about a few thousand baht (the car was 680K) but paying more because I’m a farang always annoys me.
    Anyone know a place in Pattaya that can get this done at a fair (i.e. Thai) price?

      Why do you need an agent? If you have the necessary paperwork you just do the transfer at one of the counters at Land Transport.

      If all the paperwork is in order from buyer ans sellers end, it’s a very simple process.

      If they don’t help a Farang bring somebody who speaks Thai, it’s quite simple
