More Details
Making sure that your production is done correctly and according to your ordered specifications is an important step in sourcing goods. Major or minor mistakes can be corrected MUCH easier when the goods are still with the supplier vs. if you ship them and discover problems later.

In addition, holding final payment until the corrections have been made will give the supplier incentive to make sure that any errors are corrected. If there are no problems and the production run was done correctly, the inspection will grant you the peace of mind that everything was done as you expected!

When doing a production inspection, we will gather required information from you such as the contact info of your supplier, a general description of goods, and any very specific items that you would like our inspection team to keep an eye out for.

Generally, an inspection will not check every item, but instead will take a sampling of them. This number varies based on the total number of units, type of units, etc. Generally, however, this number is around 20% of the order.

Once our inspection staff arrive at the supplier’s facility, they will begin making notes on a large number of factors, including but not limited to:
  • Total number of items produced, pieces per carton, number of cartons, etc
  • General workmanship of moving parts, function, and production quality
  • Cleanliness of final products and packaging
  • Weight and dimensions of items, packaging, and shipping cases
  • Barcode scannability and scan results
  • General impressions of order quality
While our inspectors can not be experts in every aspect of every type of product, our general inspection will give you enough information about your order to determine if you are satisfied or not. With this information, you can then discuss the final acceptance or rejection of your order with a more informed approach.
