VIDEO CALLS! Our team will review samples on a video call with you so you can ask questions and gain more insights into the samples.
CONSOLIDATE & FORWARD! Don’t waste money on courier and freight fees. We will consolidate the good samples you have approved and ship them all together at the same time to you.
FREE STORAGE! We can store your samples for free, allowing you to wait before forwarding all samples. More importantly, the perfect golden sample can be kept on hand in China so that the final production of your goods can always be benchmarked against what you have signed off on during Pre-shipment Inspection.
PRIORITY SUPPLIER SUPPORT! Suppliers react quicker when they know you have a local office on the ground in China receiving your samples, and they usually agree to take back and refund any faulty or damaged samples. It’s that easy!
We curate your samples before they leave China. That means we track your shipment, review each one with you over a video call, and then forward the promising samples to your location. It's exactly like having your own office and team on the ground. This service pays for itself in courier fee savings.
Frequently asked questions
TIP: KEEP SCROLLING DOWN TO WATCH SOME HELPFUL VIDEOS BELOW.
Do you check the samples?
We will do a visual comparison with the general look and feel of samples and we can compare it to a reference sample if you have one.
Where is your office?
Our offices are based in Luohu District, Shenzhen, China. Our team will provide you with a label for your suppliers to use as a shipping label with their couriers.
How many samples can I send to your China office?
There is no limit to the number of samples. The service ends when you book your 45-minute video call, or when we forward your batch of samples to you. If you choose not to do the video call, we typically end the job once all your samples are forwarded to you.
Why do you say this service pays for itself?
The costs you save with one courier fee of the wrong sample sent to you internationally easily covers the cost of this service, not to mention the time it saves.
What kind of photos do you send me and how?
The minute a sample arrives, we take detailed photos of unboxing from all angles. Usually, this detail can already tell you a lot about the condition of the sample, and whether it meets your expectations.
Do I need my own forwarder or courier account?
No, you don't. We can either use ours and quote you, or you can use yours. We can also help you to set up your own.
Can you help me pay for samples?
We are able to help you make payments more quickly in China to your suppliers for samples. Once you purchase the service, we will open a current account for you, which you can pre-fund to any amount, and then instruct our team to make payments. There is a nominal transaction fee for this.
TIME TAKEN FOR THIS SERVICE: Varying amount of times, depending on when samples are received.
You have the choice of closing off a batch at any time and starting a new batch if manufacturers are responding slowly. Each new batch is a new service fee and would be a new service cost.
Generally, we keep a job open for 2 months, but depending on circumstances we can extend that (because we know suppliers can sometimes let us all down and delays happen).

I had so many samples and with everything happening now... Sending all my samples to GlobalTQM was much quicker and easier.
They were able to check my samples in great detail while making sure all my requirements were met! They sent me really good videos and pictures explaining everything until I was happy with the results. It was so simple and clear!
Great service, everyone was very patient with me as we worked through my sample problems which were actually my bad.
Good start to using GlobalTQM services will be recommending it.
We have worked with Global TQM on a number of occasions but the most notable and memorable for us was calling upon their services to accompany us on a day of visiting manufacturers in the Guangzhou region. Simon was an amazing representative for our business on the day of meeting factory owners in person. Apart from having local knowledge and assisting us to communicate frankly with business owners, Simon actually went over and above the call of duty to ensure our visit ran as smoothly as possible, especially considering our own quite specific situation. Simon will definitely be part of our next visit to China!
