got a piece of luggage - hard case, cabin size trolley bag. Needs repair. Anybody knows a place which can repair luggage, preferably around the subang area? Would consider surrounding areas as well..
As far as I know..SJ does not have a bag repair shop.
My bag had to be sent for repairs at KL..
The shop I know of.. located behind Pudu jail../Hang Tuah Fire Station.
This shop has all the spare parts to repair bags..even down to combination locks!
The shop is located at either jalan Meranti 1 or Meranti 2.
Pls see this map for directions to get there.
At these streets, ask around the mamak stalls where the shop is, they will direct you.
Hope this will help you.

you could alternatively buy a new bag.
you can get really good and cheap bags at jusco at 1 utama for RM 120, huge luggage trolley bags that are quite well made.
samsonite's are about rm250, but i don't like hard cases because they add on considerably to the weight.
they make the best luggage and bags in the world. real good quality, very expensive, can't get them in malaysia but they last ten years plus. don't get that quality around much.
Mandrina duck luggages can be purchased in Singapore as well as Hong Kong. However I don't think it is right to say they are the best in the world. Firstly you have not seen a test that tested all luggages. Lasting 10 years meant that you have not subjected it to the handling of luggage handlers in India or China. Personally I think Samsonite makes darn good luggages and is pretty good value for money. If you have money to burn, then by all means buy a designer luggage like braun buffel, satchi, etc. but never check them in if you are arriving at certain cities in China. You can be sure they will not appear at the conveyor belt.
I already have a new bag.
I want to repair the old bag.
Do you know where i can repair the old bag?
Thank you for telling me where you think i can buy a new bag.
But i don't need another new bag, cos i already bought one.
'Tis the old one i need to fix.
Now where oh where can i fix the old one?
I don't know any luggage repair shop around SJ/USJ around but there are a few luggage shops along the Jalan TAR that do repair as well. I did sent my luggage there for a repair. But I can't remember exactly what is the shop name.
sadly, looks like this is one of the few things we can't get in subang.....
you may try the luggage shop in subang parade, they have a branch in pj ss2 where i got my luggage repaired some 7 years ago. check it out
AH - good! thanks!
the one in SS2 - is it the same row as Babyland? cos I went looking for that one and they aren't there anymore...
I know that this is very very old thread..just want to inform on luggage repair which are closeby.
For certain brands like Elle, Beverly Hills Sports, Pierre Cardin etc(can't remember other brands) you can actually send to their distributor itself near
Jalan Taman Perindustrian Puchong 6/13 Petaling Selangor
Travelite Sdn Bhd
Very satisfied since they changed the original parts. I repaired an Elle luggage, changed the whole roller and trolley only RM35.
Hope this will help
I have repaired my luggage zipper outside Giant Summit before but I think he is not there anymore. However, near the money changer is a shoe repair shop and he does advertise luggage repairs, if memory serves me well. Upstairs on G floor is a shop selling luggage bag where I bought a CAT luggage and they said they do accept bags for repairs.
Nowadays airlines do weigh the hand luggage so it is not advisable to buy big hand luggage as they would ask you to check it in if it is grossly overweight. Anything less than 10 kg would still be ok i think but if your hand luggage is 15 kg I am pretty sure they ask you to check it in. Actually new ones are quite cheap if you do not go for the fancy brands but you get what you paid for. Samsonites have great wheels and good zips but i have heard of cases where the wheels melted because it was rolled over a long distance in hot concrete. The cheaper samsonite brand is American Tourister but it is still not entirely cheap. The local brands like Slazenger, camel and pierre cardin are not cheap anymore. Brands like polo (the local one) are still ok but if you are not a frequent traveller it might not be worth while to buy a good one but if you travel more than 3/4 times a year it might be worthwhile to invest in a better hand carry. Brands like Delsey, Antler are also good whilst the taiwanese ones like Eminent and Echolac are also ok and so are brands like lojel. Within the brand there are also a wide range of products at different price levels.
Subang Parade got one behind the restaurants (entrance to Digital area) on Ground Floor (well, is it Lower ground ? Subang Parade is a series of mezzanies to me )
