Spare parts and the guarantee of industrial products from China


While importing from China it’s important to consider that some factories offer products under warranty. Therefore, when our team works on any project, it takes into account and reviews contractual information and warranty terms of any factory or supplier.

Often, spare parts can be free if the company that imports them takes responsibility for certain expenses.

It is very important to check the warranty terms before purchasing products to avoid disappointment and that is why it is highly recommended to have purchasing agents for industrial products in China with an experience like ours. Being able to store spare parts is often a good strategy to avoid delivery charges and shipping costs for damaged parts or products to China.
