Services of MPV Transport, a car rental company.

Just wanted to post a warning to travelers to Bandung about the above company. I communicated with a person named Irwan who represented the company. This company had been mentioned in other Forum topics. We had asked for a 6 seater MPV to ferry us around for the afternoon of 3rd March13.

a. A small car was sent to pick us up from the airport, it was obviously a personal car as the person owning it dropped it off to the MPV Transport driver with his son. Could not seat all of us. We agreed to the use of a Suzuki APV (MPV) which I know is large enough for us.

b. After dropping us off at a lunch place, the switch was made, claiming that the Suzuki APV was being washed. After lunch, we boarded it and found that it was not clean, and had torn car seats.

c. Asked for a discount price given the poor quality of the vehicles, but Irwan replied no.

Weimin,

Thank you for your feedback regarding this company..

It seems to me that the car rentals service has been deteriorating pretty rapidly in Bandung.. I do wish that these companies will step up and improve their service and not coming up with nonsense!!!

Sorry MPV, you are blacklisted!!!

Cheers

3. Re: Services of MPV Transport, a car rental company.

Hi experts of Bandung,

I will be visiting Bandung first time in Nov (5D2N) with my family, 4 adults and 2 children (Age 4 and Age 9), was thought of booking a guide with a MPV for the sight-seeing as saw a post by Ling 11 in June 2012 for good comments on MPV transport. But seems like this company is being blacklisted based on above thread by Weimin. Will there be other MPV company that I can engage for my coming trip / should it be easier for me to book day trip with my local travel agency when we reached there?

Hope to get your advice on this, apology if I post in this in the wrong thread as new in the forum.

Thanks in advance.

Pokky

Hope to get your expertise advice.

Pokky72, hello

NOTE: Due to lots of scam in BDG forum originated from PM we start a close monitoring of such activity and ask members who were approached by illegal service providers ( car rental, guide, tours). This illegal practice will endanger your health, life, well being etc - AVOID at all costs. PLEASE to report to DEs - me or Stefzzz. Your help is greatly appreciated. The best and safest way to have a car+ driver in BDG for your needs - rent from your hotel. All other companies lost our trust and BANNED forever from the recommended list.

Weimin,

Your shadow activity in PM brought attention of admins. You clearly USE TA and PM for the purpose that transcend the resource direct guidelines.

I suggest you to stop THIS activity at once, otherwise your account will be closed, and your IP address blacklisted.
