Factory Inspection and Verification

As we are located in Shenzhen, China we primarily offer our supplier verification and inspection services here, however we can and are willing to service other parts of Guangdong such as Zhuhai, Dongguan, Shantou, Guangzhou and/or other parts of China by request.

At the very least, before doing business with any company in China you should ALWAYS do some basic checks to ensure the company is legitimate – even this does not guarantee there will not be problems BUT is crucial.

A high percentage of information on directory websites such as Alibaba can be inaccurate or even false. In fact, a ‘gold’ verification, star rating or similiar just means that a specific yearly fee was paid and does not guarantee authenticity. Simple google searches will bring up numerous horror stories.

The MAJORITY of companies on the online directories are trading companies and lie or present themselves as manufacturers. This may not be a bad thing, but could mean less quality control, increased prices and you need to consider if they are lying about being a factory what else may they lie about in the future?

We can verify and/or even visit or inspect a supplier or factory – either on your behalf or pretend to be a potential customer.  Most Chinese companies will take you and your business a lot more seriously if you do have someone verify their existence and visit their factory on your behalf as MOST buyers never come to China, let alone visit their suppliers.

What we can do:

  • Verify the company registration, directors, phone numbers and address
  • Visit the factory in person, check company certificate
  • Inspect the factory and take photos or videos as you require
  • Work with factories to get your products made and do check ups on the production and QC
