Can anyone explain why we have to pay more than 63,000 baht to bring in our personal possessions from Europe (more than 20,000 tax on total items values at 2000-3000 Euro)? My wife is Thai by the way!
Perhaps the local Thai shipping agent is taking you for a ride! Contact some other agents for quotes on your goods to get some feel for the situation.

But that was at least 10 years ago. An awful lot has changed since then.
Sorry to say it, but the question is nSot whether you got ripped off, it's by whom?
As an aside, when I moved to France from the USA 25 years ago, because the local prefecture misplaced my immigration dossier, I left a 20 foot container with all my possessions sitting at the port of Marseilles for a month while I waited for the tax dispensation that never came. In the end I had to pay about $2,000 in import duties because I couldin't wait any longer for my stuff. By the time I got it the container had been broken into and my beloved stereo, and fax machine stolen. Yep, I was ready to tear my hair out.
But my lawyer brother in the US sent a shipping company letter and got me 5,000 bucks in compensation.
