Further, all listed companies are compared based on the same criteria, such as location, offered services, and more.
What’s the price of a quality inspection in Thailand?
The quality inspection cost depends on the product category, quantity and standard requirements. Basically, the price varies between US$350 and US$450 per man day, for most of the inspection companies.
As such, quality inspections in Thailand is a bit more expensive than in China, where a QC is normally priced at around US$300.
Is it necessary to book a quality inspection when importing from Thailand?
The risk of quality issues is as high in Thailand as it is elsewhere, including China. You cannot easily (if at all) return defective products, and therefore it’s absolutely essential to get your product quality inspected before shipment.
Some importers are under the impression that quality issues only exist in China, and that ‘anywhere else’ is risk-free – but that’s not the case.
