Importing Furniture From China?

Importing Furniture From China?


Everyone Alex Ryan here I wanna share a
quick tip about three years ago I went to a place in Africa called Mozambique
and I had a client over there who was importing furniture very similar to the
ones you see out there he owned two resorts in Mozambique and I
assisted and helped him import these from China he saved a whole bunch of
money and he wasn’t a beginner import he was sort of an intermediate advanced in
border he already imported made quite a few million dollars importing from China
but what importing enable didn’t do was save at least 50% off the price of his
furniture now he was importing furniture these are bulky things they require 20
foot or 40 foot high Q containers you need beer containers need good customs
brokers you know good freight forwarders to get him into your country if you’re a
beginner importing I would never say import things like furniture and the
reason why is you need to have experience you need you need to know how
to feel containers you need make sure you can sell it because when you start
going to container loads it gets expensive the shipping gets expensive
not a whole lot if you base in Australia about 2,000 bucks again not a whole lot
but then you’re gonna rent the container you’re going to need if you need a
freight a freight forwarder to arrange the shipping of the container to lift it
from the dock onto a truck you need your truck transport to your warehouse or to
your 3pl so there’s a lot going on but if you’re an intermediate or advanced
important you’ve been with me for a few years you would know easily how to
import these but if you’re new do not go into importing these things okay
furniture it not only cost quite a bit of money so you’ll add a pocket a lot of
capital upfront but also you need to know the ins and outs of actually
shipping by container if you’re newly importing focus on things you can fly
over in little boxes shoe boxes or boxes a little bit bigger
but things you can fly over on dho I mean or even just EMS or or just China
sugar China air but focus on that if you’re new to be important okay
things that are lightweight things that don’t cost a lot of money but are very
high margin but things that more importantly do not require container
loads okay enjoy your rest day today hope you’re having a fantastic day and
happy importing talk to you soon
