Who pays for sample costs?


Mainbridge covers the material, shipping, and all other associated costs for your samples. You don't pay anything for the samples.




What is your minimum quantity?


Due to the fixed cost of oversea seacan shipping and production overhead cost, the higher the quantity you order, the lower the unit variable cost becomes. As a result, we recommend clients order at the wholesale bulk quantity to try to fit either a 20' or 40' sea-can.

We take Quality Control very seriously. We have a rigorous process to ensure you receive the products you expected. Firstly, we have good manufacturers. They are well established, highly reputed, and have good management teams. These manufacturers respond quickly to order requests and changes. They also have a rigorous quality control process for before, during and after production. Secondly, we have our "On-Ground" Quality Control Team at the manufacturing plants to review the products for approval. Thirdly, we package the order with the most suitable material and methods. We also tailor packaging to requests for fragile products. The highly experienced shipping team loads the order carefully and secures the order in the sea-can very securely to prevent shifts during shipping. Fourthly, once the order arrives at your plant, our Client Relations team come to review products and discuss follow-up notes for future orders.




How can I protect my designs, technical drawings and customizations?
