The importance of samples in furniture hardware imports from China

When importing furniture and construction hardware from China, you want quality, commitment and the best product for your company. This is why samples are so important: they allow you to see firsthand what the final product and its finishes will be like.

Because of the complexity of importing products and materials from China, you need to have a team that provides you with a consulting service. A team that speaks both your language and the manufacturer’s. Having a good understanding of the peculiarities of working in China will help ensure your business relationships with suppliers are fluid and efficient.

What you should know about samples of imports

First of all, you should know that, barring justified exceptions, no supplier should refuse to send a sample. As a general rule, it will be of a previous product that is in stock. This means that, if there are changes in the new batch, these should be explained in detail.

It should be a custom sample in which you can see how the manufacturing processes will be adjusted to the company. As for transport, the most common method is by air, and so quality control needs to be as rigorous as possible to avoid unnecessary costs.

The main advantages of having samples in furniture hardware imports from China

Let’s look at how your furniture and construction hardware business benefits from having samples before starting production:

  • The most important advantage is being able to see the product in person. You’ll see firsthand what the materials are and how it can be used.
  • Also, you can see the finishes that the supplier works with.
  • You will be able to see the quality levels of the product.
  • If the sample is what you are expecting, you can count on that supplier in the future.
