1. How to judge whether the silicone hose supplier is a factory or a middleman?
In China, the quotations of trading companies maybe 15% to 50% higher than their factories. And the service of some trading companies is no better than factory, which means the extra price you pay is meaningless.
While not all factories are suitable suppliers, I will give you two simple tips on determining if it is a factory or a middleman.
China Silicone Tube Factory or Company
Check the supplier’s location
Chinese factories are usually located in suburban or industrial areas, an hour’s drive from the city center. If you find a supplier with an address in an urban area, chances are they are just a trading company, not a manufacturer.
If you can’t go to China by yourself for a while, how do you know where the suppliers are? You probably want to use Google Street View, right?
But, here is an important fact: Google is unavailable in China for some reason. This includes Google Search, Google Maps, etc.
But it’s not hopeless. You can try Baidu, the Chinese version of Google. Just like Google, you only need to enter the corresponding Chinese address, and you can use Baidu Street View to see what the address looks like.
If you don’t want to know how it works, you can send us your supplier information, and we will do a preliminary verification for you.
