The Bangkok Airport Luggage Service by AIRPORTELs is a reasonably priced item I found on KLOOK since I would have a full day in Bangkok before heading back to Singapore only on the last flight of the day at almost midnight. Rather than backtracking to Aspira One Sutthisan to pick up my bag before heading to Don Mueang Airport, I decided to use this AIRPORTELs Bangkok Airport Luggage Service for 199 Baht (S$8.89) so that I can freely roam around Bangkok before heading straight for the airport just before departure.
While the KLOOK confirmation email came immediately after I had paid, the AIRPORTELs confirmation email only came slightly more than 24 hours after KLOOK‘s. The AIRPORTELs confirmation email reminded me to drop my luggage at the Aspira One Sutthisan reception or concierge and to note that AIRPORTELs will come to pick up my luggage within 3 hours from the appointed drop-off time of 12pm, “or show yellow instruction picture”.
As a good measure, I printed out the email’s “yellow instruction picture”, though in black and white, and tagged it on my bag before leaving it at the Aspira One Sutthisan front desk upon check-out.
At just 12.04pm, 4 minutes after the cut-off time for the bag drop-off, I received an update email that my bag (with a picture of my bag included) has been picked up by AIRPORTELs from Aspira One Sutthisan. That was really quick.
At 1.45pm, my bag was already at Don Mueang Airport, with a picture of it on their AIRPORTELs counter weighing scale. This is almost 8 hours ahead of my scheduled pick-up time. Amazing.
Once I arrived at Don Mueang Airport, I headed down to the arrivals level where the AIRPORTELs counter is.

The AIRPORTELs Don Mueang Airport Counter Desk is located just at the end of this passageway.
The official location of the AIRPORTELs Don Mueang Airport Counter Desk is Don Mueang Airport Terminal 2, 1st Floor, Gate 9, and they are open 24 hours daily.

After showing my order number from my phone to the AIRPORTELs staff, the staff went to the back room to retrieve my bag, and that was it. Simple as that.
Overall, a convenient luggage delivery service from my hotel to Don Mueang Airport which allowed me to freely go about my day in Bangkok without additional times to think about meeting to retrieve my bag back at Aspira One Sutthisan before departing for the airport for my flight back to Singapore.
