HOW IT WORKS

Thorough, Transparent, and Reliable Inspections

Your inspection is modular, and can be customized for exactly what you want to look for. Simple inspections are quicker and cost less to than more complex ones.

THE PROCESS

Your inspection experience

Our highly trained inspectors visit your factory and check your products' designated sample size to ensure they meet your specifications. Inspections can be done during production and before every shipment. We send a comprehensive report to you upon the completion of every check for your review.

Frequently Asked Questions

My factory recommended an inspection company?

Inspection companies should be 3rd parties. Factories only recommend inspection companies they have relationships with, which means the inspector is likely to pass a bad order.

My factory said they should do their own inspections?

All factories should be doing their own quality inspections during production. Movley exists because most of the time those checks are not thorough and do not check for your requirements.

Is it better to go to a factory or separate warehouse?

Only freight companies do inspections at their own warehouse. Inspection companies go physically to the factory. Freight companies make more money when your order passes which is why they make you pay your supplier before they get it. By the time you get results, you’ve lost your monetary leverage even if something bad gets found. They are also a shipping company, and do not conduct inspection to best practices including statistical sample sizes. When doing inspections at the factory, we also have access to their machines, a product expert (your sales rep), and additional help to speed up the process.

Why not use a Chinese inspection company?

The process

Customizable inspections

Our inspections can be customized to be low-cost and straightforward for simple products. It can also be more thorough and complex, especially when dealing with electrical and mechanical products.

Standard CHECKs
General specification

Basic product and packaging specifications including size, weight, and color.

Visual check

In-depth visual check of the entire sample size for labeling, visible defects, color inaccuracies, and lousy packaging.

Shipping cartons

Check carton and pallet labeling, ensure cartons are durable for shipping (carton drop tests), etc.

Quantity

Approximate order quantity verification based on carton weights and count.

Production Line Check

Standard on during production inspections. We’ll document the active production line with a breakdown of each step and a video.

OPTIONAL tests (Complex Products)
Function tests

Pre-defined tests that confirm that the product functions as intended (i.e. plug in a lamp).

Safety tests

For products with specific safety standards (i.e. electronic tests, or even checking a pot’s weight bearing capacity).

Wear & tear tests

Simulated wear and tear and abuse testing to simulate customer use and ensure your products are built to last.

Reference sample comparison

Ship us your reference samples, and we can compare them to the manufactured product. Get the exact color, texture, or feel you ordered.
