Re: Motorcycle disc lock and alarm?

Check out AliExpress, very cheap (not good quality, but a nice deterrent as they're not common here). Otherwise you use a freight forwarding service, but good quality ones are fairly hefty so costs a bit to ship. As I mentioned, I've used AliExpress but they took months. I can get DHL delivery on t...

Re: Motorcycle disc lock and alarm?

I have a kryptonite I brought over myself, but I've also gotten some smaller ones shipped in via Amazon and Aliexpress. The Krytonite is probably too heavy / bulky for her to carry around. The disc lock is pretty compact. Amazon will ship to Cambodia? Is that Amazon Aus? I've bought stuff from AliE...

Re: Motorcycle disc lock and alarm?

Worth a viewing: Interesting to watch. However if you look at the type of lock I have/want you can see it would be almost impossible to cut off without cutting the bike brake disc. Also the alarm goes off within a few seconds of being touched or the bike moved. Mine has been pretty effective. The f...

Motorcycle disc lock and alarm?

My girlfriend had her scooter stolen for the second time. I use an alarm like this in Aus: https://www.mcas.com.au/shop/item/xtech-orange-alarm-disc-lock-55mm which does the job for me and my bike. We managed to only find one place selling this type of alarm/lock in PP: https://www.facebook.com/3563...

Re: How to ship product to Cambodia?

^^^^^ I don't know about the insurance side of things but I recently sent an item to Australia via DHL from PP and it got there in 5 days. Also recently, I got a Mastercard credit card sent to me via DHL. Tracked all the way. As well, this post says EMS is operating again via the Post Office...chea...

Re: Property purchase from overseas

Thanks. I did a test with AUDSmart and the difference in the exchange rate was about 2% versus withdrawing from my Australian bank via an ATM (my bank gives really close to the XE rate for the day).This would be significant for a large amount.

How does OFX compare with the XE rate?
