We got many inquiries from people who want to import bamboo products since our website mesunbamboo.com worked. Some clients are first-time purchases from China. Here are some tips for you:

1. The MOQ

For many clients who start his business ask for our MOQ. To support and build our long partner shipment, we are welcome to a trial order. The trial order is better about 200-400m2. Because 4 to 5 CBM normally will be the most suitable minimum volume for LCL (Less than Container Load) shipping. If less than this, the whole export & import process is complicated and costs a lot of money, which means the average cost for each product will be high.

For 2nd order, the MOQ is 1x20ft container. The important thing is that you can put a maximum of 2-3 kinds of products (like bamboo plywood, bamboo countertops, and bamboo beams, etc.) into the container.


2. The Price

We always focus on providing the most suitable and cost-effective products according to the needs of customers. Regarding the bamboo panels, you hardly see the difference between high quality and inferior products when you have a sample in your hands. The invisible raw materials, glue and anti-corrosion, and anti-mildew technology are the keys to define the quality and price. Mesun bamboo products will prove themselves over time when weather and climate circumstances change.

What you should do when finding suppliers online is being careful, and do not only focus on the lowest price, because you already can get good profit in retail. Or you will take the risk of receiving cheap quality or problem products. We tell people you get what you pay for, and make sure you are comparing apples to apples when you are buying your panels.
