OT: Baggage repair shop needed

Post by nldogbert » 02 May 2006, 17:00

Hi!

My luggage was recently damaged when I returned from a trip. It was the airlines fault, thus I am eligible to claim back the damage repair from them. However, I am having lots of problem trying to find a place where they repair luggages. It is not a Samsonite or any well known brand here in Europe as I got the bag from Asia. I have tried looking it up in the yellow pages and searched on the internet to no avail :(

It would be great if anyone could advise me on where to get at least a quotation or place to get it done within the Belgium and Netherlands.

Thanks in advance!

:)

I hope you went the lost and bagage office upon arrival. There, they will fill out a PIR (Passenger Irregularity Form) either for a lost bag or a damaged bag.

In BRU, there used to be (it's been a long time sine I was there) a shoe-repair shop in the public shopping area. I remember this guy had contracts with some airlines for bag repair.

I suggest you contact the airline you traveled with into BRU. If no representation, you contact the handling agent. More detailed info can be found on the BIAC website.

Good luck

The former luggage repair service of Brussels airport is now moved.
You can find it in Zaventem dorp
phone : 02/7211360
Address:
Globe Trotter
Lindenstraat 1 1930 Zaventem.
The price for the location in the airport was too expensive.

Repair for Delsey, Samsonite .....

Thanks for the information. It was really great, called the shop and they said they do repair bags. Would drop by the shop most probably next week to see what they can do to it..hopefully will be able to get it back soon.

Haha.. guess I must have done too much trip reports on Alitalia :P No, it was not on Alitalia but on Delta.

Thanks again for the help fellow Luchtzakkers :)

Guys, can you advise a suitcase for children tested by trips. Because we wanted to buy Trunki, they’re funny but we read the reviews, and people say that they are enough for only one trip. The wheels and handles break quickly etc., etc. So, of course, they are too expensive for just one trip. I need a cool suitcase. But also to really carry out the suitcase function too)) do you know any of these?

Out of experience...
The Trunki's are just fine as hand luggage and the two we own survived already many trips by plane and car.
However, if you want better... https://www.samsonite.be/nl/dream-rider ... -7258.html
