Pre-Shipment Inspection
Inspecting your products in China reduces the risk of receiving subpar goods from your supplier and ensure quality is upheld to protect your brand. We offer pre-inspection of your products in China, which is completed before you make your final payment to your supplier and your products get shipped to the U.S.

A random inspection is completed in accordance with a set of standards set forth by both you and your supplier. A comprehensive report is then emailed to you. Results include a score of “pass,” “reject,” or “pending,” with detailed comments and photographs as to why the sample of products received these scores.

Pre-shipment inspections are charged at a retail price of $399 for one man-day, and $250 per each day after. The majority of inspections typically only last for one day.
