Chinese Casket Manufacturers
Chinese casket manufacturers are now producing a high quality casket, equal to or surpassing the quality of any US casket manufacturer. Unlike more mature Chinese manufacturing industries, Chinese casket manufacturers lack oversight and quality control. This can make importing caskets from China very risky. All it takes is one bad order and you could be out $30,000. With the help of a quality control and risk management agent, you can avoid the headache and frustration of a bad experience with Chinese casket manufacturers. Perhaps the best way to be sure that you are getting a quality product is to travel to China on your own to the casket manufacturer and inspect your order before it is shipped.
This way you can have the casket manufacturer correct any mistakes before the caskets are shipped. Once your Chinese caskets arrive in the United States, it's too late. It will be virtually impossible to negotiate any refund or product replacement. Unfortunately, most casket wholesalers or sellers do not have the time or the financial resources to travel to China every month or quarter to inspect their caskets. This is a huge expense and a massive waste of time and effort.
There are, however, casket quality control and risk management sourcing agents. Such agents will inspect your caskets for you onsite at the Chinese casket manufacturer and make them correct any quality issues before the caskets set sail for the US. A sourcing agent should live near the Chinese casket manufacturers, usually in Shanghai, so it is easy for them to travel back and forth from the factories when necessary. Chinese casket manufacturer sourcing agents are independent experts that represent the buyer here in the United States, not the factory. However, because they eliminate the customer service burden from the factory, most Chinese casket manufacturers do not see them as a nuisance. Furthermore, Chinese casket manufacturers actually know very little about the details of quality when it comes to caskets, so they appreciate an expert casket inspector to help them increase the quality of their product. Most Chinese casket sourcing agents charge a nominal fee, usually less than the cost of a round trip plane ticket to China to visit a Chinese casket manufacturer on your own. In addition, the best sourcing agents will also arrange world-wide door-to-door shipping for you and negotiate product replacement should a quality issue be overlooked. It is not recommended that you import caskets on your own from Chinese casket manufacturers. It may go well once or twice, but you are bound to get a bad batch of caskets sooner or later.
And once they are here in the states it is virtually impossible to do anything about it. Chinese casket manufacturers have no quality control management of their own. If you import caskets from China on your own, there will not be anyone ensuring the quality of your caskets, at all.
