Importing Directly From Overseas Is Easy – With a Team

Importing your blinds involves coordination and some expertise.

Just as it’s wise to have an attorney at your side to navigate legal matters, and similarly, having a CPA to keep the IRS wolves away from your door, you should have an expert to guide you as you import products from abroad. (And they are much less expensive than lawyers and CPA’s!) These experts are often in ONE OFFICE: A Customs Broker.

Packaging The Blinds You Plan To Import

Assuming you’re buying blinds to use in your multi-family project, you’ll need the simplest of packaging. No need for fancy packaging. All products will be properly labeled. The extra pennies you save across 1000’s of blinds serves to save you money.

Here’s some more practical advice:

  • Order extra tilt wands. There will be occasional requests for replacement wands.
  • If you are ordering blinds longer than 72″, you may want to consider ordering 78″ and longer blinds with longer wands.
  • You can assure you the product and installation instructions will be written in perfect American English. We don’t leave this detail to chance.
  • The USA requires CORDLESS BLINDS – ONLY unless they are custom made. Don’t forget this important detail because they will be stopped at the port of entry!
  • Allow for 120 days for delivery of your container. It’s seldom more than 90 days to arrive at port but you never know when delays can arise.

Valuable Advice When Importing

You never want to be your own lawyer and you definitely don’t want to be your own import agent – at least not until you have MANY transactions under your belt.
