How to make the most of the furniture sourcing tour and get ready for it read here.

If you buy furniture in China for your own need or business, it is vital to come here personally, see and choose what you need. Photos and videos will never do the justice of the size and selection of any items in Foshan because It's better seeing something once than hearing twice. Another reason is to check the quality and select the exact colour palette.

It takes 5-7 days on average for customers to choose everything they want. No need searching for suppliers, visiting factories and dusting your boots in dirty warehouses because all of the vendors are in one city and your personal manager selected only the places that have items you require.

At first sight, the whole trip seems like not worth the amount of energy spent on it. But at the end of the day, the tour is optimized and so efficient that it totally saves the time and money.

Managers make sure that a manufacturer is able to complete the order on time and without degrading the quality.

How to buy furniture in China?

Buying furniture in China includes many steps, but nevertheless, it’s an interesting, fascinating, and profitable journey for a client.

You send an application or contact us any of the ways. Along with application customers usually send the wishlist of items, budget and approximate dates of the trip to China. Considering all this information our manager starts planning the furniture sourcing tour from day 1.

  1. To book the tour dates customers transfer 200$ prior to arrival. If you need a visa invitation, our company provides it after the deposit received.
  2. Our manager meets you at the airport and after takes you to the hotel to have some rest and get ready for the shopping. The same person will accompany and help you throughout the whole tour. If customers are ready, the tour can be started the same day.
  3. Before the shopping starts, the manager takes clients to our company’s office in Foshan to sign the contract and to complete the deposit fee with 900$. Both 200$ and 900$ will be later deducted from the percentage calculated agency fee.
  4. The manager takes the customer to showroom matching the wishlist style. They choose the items, and the manager takes detailed notes along with pictures and forms a purchase list with specification plus exact prices. He/She also talks prices on your behalf and won’t let sellers fool you.
  5. Customers pay 30% deposit in showrooms, after that we place an order. As production goes, some items completed earlier than other. Our managers do quality control personally for each item in the order and control if delivered goods match the purchase order. If there are any quality/quantity/specification problems detected, we solve them with the manufacturer before shipping.
  6. After production is completed, customers pay the balance. We consolidate items from all the vendors in our warehouse in Foshan and load the container.

Which place in China I should go to buy furniture?

Foshan map

Furniture fairs in China

Guangzhou — a huge city located next to Foshan — holds numerous specialized and general exhibitions every year: the most famous general fair is the Canton Fair, there are also exhibitions specially designed for furniture manufacturers.

  • CIFF — China International Furniture Fair happens twice a year: in spring in Guangzhou and in autumn in Shanghai. It's the biggest furniture fair in China and in Asia.
  • The Canton Fair — the biggest exhibition in Asia among all. It's not made especially for furniture, nevertheless, it's so massive that there are still a lot of furniture factories presented.
  • International Famous Furniture Fair is held annually in Dongguan (Close to Guangzhou city). Here you can find:
  1. Furniture for residential spaces
  2. Office furniture
  3. Furniture for villas, country houses, and cottages
  4. Exclusive furniture
  5. Antique furniture
  6. Furniture for public spaces
  7. Materials for furniture production
  8. Fittings
  9. Fabrics for furniture production
  10. Mattresses
  11. Furniture Production Software
  12. Furniture design, interior solutions

Why it's better to buy furniture in Foshan than on specialized fairs?

Although visiting exhibitions can be interesting, it might be not the best choice if you buy furniture for yourself. Unless you are looking for business partners, we do not recommend purchasing furniture at exhibitions and here's why:

  1. Suppliers come to Guangzhou from all over China, and when it comes to ordering, it turns out that a significant part of the product price is a shipping cost from different provinces in China to the warehouse.
  2. The samples presented at exhibitions are made perfectly but often when it comes to actual supplying, it turns out that the quality does not even closely match the one seen before. Getting suppliers from different provinces only make it more complicated. Managing quality control from that far requires additional resources and reduces the benefits of buying furniture in China to a zero.
  3. Manufacturers coming to exhibitions are not there for retail. They look for a wholesale, big fish customers. Be prepared, factories won't sell a couple of sofas, simply because they are not interested.
  4. Factories cannot bring their entire furniture range to the exhibition stand, they take only a couple of best samples. It brings you to an extremely limited choice, and you may simply not find what you need. The furniture on the stands serves mainly for attracting attention, and you will be offered to choose from catalogs. But is it worth to come to China for scrolling through catalogs' pages?

Foshan's furniture markets occupy more than 5 million square meters. Showrooms of all manufacturers gathered in one place, which allows you to choose exactly what you need, without traveling between factories from one town end to another. Foshan is a never-ending furniture exhibition, where you can find furniture of any style for any purpose at any time of the year. In addition, furniture presented in Foshan originally intended for sale in China, so no export markup included in product prices.

The most common mistakes when buying furniture in China

Bad preparation

You need to get ready for anything important especially when it's buying furniture in another country. Take room plans, it can make your trip much easier and effective because sellers will know exact sizes and reduce the odds of mistakes. If you build a house (apartment, restaurant, hotel, office) in accordance with a design project, bring all the documents with you. We advise showing wish/shopping lists and plans to our manager prior to arrival. Read more about how to get ready for furniture sourcing tour here.

Very often we get calls from people who realized that there is no way they can do it on their own in Foshan’s furniture markets. Doing it all by yourself requires big-time investments from you: waiting for the order to be ready, do quality control of each item, rent a warehouse, arrange shipping and container loading, request paperwork from vendors which often do not even know which documents needed for exporting furniture and do not know how to fill it. The reason is most of their customers are local Chinese companies. It morphs into overpaying for different services which are not always reliable and overpaying on the markets where Chinese vendors just enjoy unprotected not-knowing the language customer. It happens all the time.

Ignoring quality control

When working with Chinese suppliers never, never, never (!) ignore quality control procedures. Even if it's your longtime Chinese manufacturer you worked for years. The moment suppliers realize nobody controls their work and they can ship it off right after production, factories tend to ease up, get lousy and starting using low-quality materials. You find it out when you receive it, which is way too late to fix it.

Choosing not reliable partners in China

In China, especially in Guangdong province, where the Pearl river goes off to multiple little rivers most of which are navigable, logistics was always one of the main business areas.

Pearl river delta map

Unfortunately, there are always plenty of day-fly logistics companies which just reassign their duties to cheaper logistics companies and still get their commision. Worst comes to worst, you'll lose time and still have to find another logistics company.

Buying furniture on Alibaba

Suppliers don't check if the product is legally compliant

Factories do what they are meant for - produce, no one is going to check patients in other countries. If your product was patented in your country or there is an official distributor, you're looking into confiscating or huge financial loss.

All Alibaba suppliers are reliable

Alibaba is just a platform that provides middle hand businesses with more trading opportunities. When you have no chance to check the supplier, they gonna tell you the tales about enormous production capacities and all the experience they've got with customers from all over the world. In real life, it could be made in someone's garage, and photos are fake. In China, there is always a way to rent a place or order nice professional photos.  

Never hire an agent

The market is full of amateur manufacturers and trading agencies can come in handy to put supply processes right. Often it takes years to find weakest links and adjust import procedures. Energy, time and money saved when working with agents can be invested in something better.

You'll have to explain what «good quality» means

Do bother and explain every little detail of the required quality. The definition of "good quality" for you and factories' workers can differ. Chinese suppliers often try to produce something similar to what you've ordered and will try to convince you that's it's almost the same.

Control suppliers on every step

Rule number one is never to trust your suppliers, especially, in the beginning. All those talks about the number of workers, professional engineers, big factory etc. can be just a lie.

Do not trust until you see for yourself. Alibaba is a platform for small and middle size companies which means many of them don't have lots of experience and probably never worked with foreign customers.

Do not trust the vendor with logistics

Vendors will desperate for you to allow arrange logistics to them. But don't be fooled because often suppliers just repass the task to logistics company or you'll be their last priority.

Big companies and their old clients are always vendors' priority. Do not expect the same attitude on you. We suggest hiring a logistics company that will be responsible for the order and which allows you to control and check on the order.

How to get ready for furniture sourcing tour in China?

Prepare the project

Kitchens are all custom-made and to order kitchen cabinets customers need to provide measurements for the room.

If you a perfectionist and want to get everything right remembers to get those rooms plans. The calculation required for all custom made furniture, building and decoration materials. Estimate the amount of materials you'll need, do it yourself or with a help of your constructor. Reduce the odds of mistakes by providing as much detailed information to factory as you can. Take into account lightly related to furniture and construction materials.

Make a full shopping / wishlist

Blocks of furniture malls will astonish you with a total market space of malls 1,5 bigger than Central Park in New York and 7,5 times bigger than Disneyland. After customers get there, they usually need some time to get the focus back and remember what do you come here for.

Get the shopping list ready for this trip and better send it to our managers prior to the arrival. We optimize the tour and do the groundwork for your list.

Get the details straight with agents prior to arrival

Always sign a contract and if the agent doesn't agree – find another more reliable company. Make sure that order can be delivered safely before placing the order. Buying furniture requires certainty in production quality and getting all the items in one piece that far abroad. Check if company/agent has an office, visit it and talk all details through.

Get all the paperwork done

Most of the countries required to get Chinese visa prior to arrival. Some countries only can apply for a visa with a Chinese company's invitation.

Contact our manager–we provide visa invitation for our clients.

Applying for visa remember embassy doesn't work during Chinese holidays, and the holidays of the country it's located in. Check the documents needed for the visa application or apply for the visa through the tour agency. Remember attaching hotel and flights booking information when applying for the visa.

Take comfy clothes

Walking through Foshan furniture markets is quite tiring considering the scale of it. Take this into account when planning the trip.

A furniture sourcing working day is 5-10 hours on foot so we strongly recommend wearing comfortable shoes.

Tell us about people with difficulties to walk or keep a long time on feet prior to your arrival

Let us know as soon as it's possible about people in your company that have problems with walking or walking for a long time and we'll try our best to organize suitable transportation for you and your family/friends.

Inform the agent about the budget and a transaction option

Inform your manager about the budget. This will help in finding the right place quality-price wise. If agents don't know your budget, you'll most probably waste a lot of time roaming around markets instead of going just for the right price segment.

Do not take children with you

If you have a chance, do not take children with you.

Ask nannies, grandparents or some other relatives take care of your children or plan their free time and don’t annoy them by walking hours in markets they have no interest in.

Furniture sourcing shopping can be exhausting and needs focus and patience. In our experience kids get bored fast and it becomes extremely tiresome for them.

Most common mistakes when working with furniture suppliers from China

Cheap furniture quality

If you buy the cheapest product, do not expect decent quality. There are many wonders in China but cheap super quality furniture is not one of them. Cheap quality can be because of two factors: low skilled workers and low-quality materials. The better the quality the more you save.

Lead time foot-dragging by Chinese manufacturers

Chinese manufacturers will swear their head to convince that production time won't take more than a month. But the minute you place the order lose all interest in you. To avoid these problems work only with reliable, tried and true suppliers. In many cases to achieve exact production dates, our managers have to call top management. We always solve the problems in favour of our clients.

Not providing documents

Many vendors are very careless about documents mainly because most of them only deal with Chinese domestic market.

Without proper paperwork, you'll probably be fined at customs or won't be able to ship the container at all.

From day one our managers inform and require the exact documents from all the vendors and control its presentation. Based on these documents we prepare paperwork for shipping and customs clearance in China and the country of delivery.

Packing list information is often far from reality

It's a similar problem to the previous issue: a sofa that weighs 200 kgs is only 100 kgs on the paper which will affect the customs clearance cost. Selling to domestic market supplier often ignores actual data and provides customers with ballpark numbers. First of all, it simply can just not fit into the container which causes rebooking/returning containers, and it leads to financial loss for customers. The only way to avoid it – working trustworthy factories which have export experience.

Bad packing

Good manufacturers aren't cheap on packing materials and to be honest, the package cost in China is relatively low. Buying from small factories, on another hand, can often lead to repacking of all the items because they just won't make it through the ocean. When this happens, our manager always informs customers and suggest repacking with its estimated cost.

Lack or nonexistence of customers service

Only big fishes have actual customer service, small and middle hand suppliers try to save up as much as they can which leaves them without proper service team. Don't be surprised when vendors won't answer your calls or messages about production dates and shipping. When placing an order, our managers take higher management contact information to push the order.

Money transfers $$$

Chinese manufacturers in Foshan work mainly on the domestic market which allows them to keep prices low. Unfortunately, there are very few options to pay to vendors, sometimes you only can pay in RMB - the local currency. Our company has accounts in Chinese banks and other international financial systems. It makes paying a deposit and balances much easier.

Why better to choose one company instead of hiring different companies for each service

The traditional way for finding and sourcing furniture from China: find a supplier, finds a logistics company, find a quality control agent, find customs clearance broker — all that had to be controlled by you and each of them gonna be responsible for their own area only.

It's difficult, expensive and can lead to a whole bunch of problems. We strongly suggest working with an agent that covers all of these services, and here is why:

Only the manager who has worked during order placement knows the expected outcome

It's obvious that the person helping you with order placement, taking noted, details and photos for each item knows what you actually wanted. Managers are responsible for the whole process from placement to container loading and shipment.

Only the company responsible for logistics and customs clearance know everything about the paperwork

Our company has been doing logistics for many years, and we know exactly the documents and procedures to follow. Managers tell vendors and control every step to make things right for each order.

Some clients call us and say they already have placed an order and just need the logistics. Unfortunately, at this point manufacturers think that no one controls the production and they can do a lousy job.

Specialized companies are responsible for every part of the order

We take responsibility for the whole process: from the moment you place an order to shipping a container. It's in our behalf to simplify the sourcing for a client and minimize risks.

Our managers have the situation under control and we have developed our own quality control system and we'll fight for perfectly made order until the very end.

We know if more packing needed

Factories are no longer responsible for produced goods the second they got the money, and if the order were damaged during shipping because of bad packaging, the manufacturer won't pay a penny.

We always remind vendors about using proper packaging which allows the order to be delivered safe and sound. Unfortunately, some manufacturer simply can't make it work and only say that this was always enough for the local Chinese buyer. If our managers see a badly packed item, they suggest customers proceed with repacking.

Saving money on different services, transparency, professionalism

We provide information on our services and fee structure within the first two days. We ship a big container quantity every month which gives us a good discount from big logistic companies. We also do customs clearance in China to make sure everything shipped and delivered on time.


Despite the fact that buying furniture in China looks like a hard task: China is far, shipping, quality control inspection etc. So much has to be done to actually get it that it seems like not worth the fuss.

When buying furniture in your city, it appeared to be hard to find things you like or can afford. Purchasing and shipping furniture is not easy but working with a trustworthy company can help you with it.

Clients from all over the world come to us independently from one another because decided that in the end buying furniture in China is easier and cheaper than shop search and overpaying to suppliers for questionable quality.

Contact us and tell our manager about your case. We are happy to share our experience with you. We love our clients and promise to give our best to help you out.
