Sometimes I wonder why I waste my time, if you read the quote I done from you you will see prices in it for half of your questions, so my reply answered half your questions, I'm sorry that that is not enough for you but I feel sure someone else will come along and answer the rest of them and then you can also reply to them

@Limey, your answer was indeed not easy to see, also I did not see it and did assume you just had a too nervous finger on the submit button, and the real answer would come later.

May be you could make it bold or give it a different color if you put your answer inside of the quote, that would be easier to notice.

@motorhomes4sale:
The 60cm*20cm*20cm QCon blocks (other brand for superblock) I did see for 40 - 50 baht, plus VAT. this is the loadbearing one which you can use for outside walls.

The 60cm*20cm*10cm QCon blocks are usually exactly half of that price, so I assume Limey did answer the price for them. these thinner blocks I see often used to replace the bricks between the columns in a column style wall, or for some inner walls in columnless constructions.

Come on limey, your answer was inside a quote, and that's where the quote/the question is, and not the answer / comment. So that's not where your eyes usually look for the answer.

getting back to the subject-matter, (hope this is not too late), I've just purchased 39x19x9cm cement blocks for 5 baht and 39x19x14 for 7 baht.
A big problem was delivery (about 100km one way) 1.5 baht each for the 9cms and 5 baht for the 14 cms! This is from a brickyard outside Saraburi. A yard in Korat wanted 5.5 baht for the 9cms and 15 BAHT!!! for the 14cms plus delivery.

You got a great price. We stopped by that yard in Saraburi before we started. They have really good quality blocks but they ended up not wanting to deliver to us here in Na Jomtien..............something to do with the police. The company we found is still about 100 km away and the price included delivery. Dozer has the phone number for those interested around Pattaya area.

I am not yet know much about "price system" in thailand. Is there any limit who comes from thai government or shops can create price however they want? Just wondering about because you said anything about police cruzing.

No limit or price controls, free enterprise in most cases. The police harass truck drivers on the road which is what I think cruzin is talking about.

concrete block deliver

Postby cruzing » Wed Jan 11, 2006 10:47 am

Yes, Dozer is exactly right. Sorry for not being more clear. They didn't want to deliver because they thought they would probably have problems with the police while driving from Saraburi to Na Jomtien (chonburi prov.)

Thanx for explain.... :wink:
Well... so it?s like all around the world...costs for delivery is the most expensive on it. So some peoples should check how expensive it is to rent a truck with a driver for pic the material up from shop. :?:
