When you get things made in China it is always a good idea to get an inspection before you commit to getting it shipped out.
This is my headache today. I have a new order of over 4000 units worth in excess of £10,000 so I really want an inspection because if something is not right it could get expensive and cause a lot of hassle.
The issue is that Chinese New Year is coming and it is getting close to my last shipment date before the manufacturer employees go home for a month or so.
So, do I ship out without an inspection or do I wait and delay the shipment for quite a long time.
I have decided to move forward with this shipment. My supplier got back to me saying an inspection has taken place and all is good and they are putting together the documentation with photos etc.
One thing on my side is that I have not paid for this order yet. My supplier has given me some credit so if the worse thing happens I have this on my side.
