Get Goods From China to Your Door – No More Paperwork, Tax or Duty Worries!
Easy Imex manages everything to get your goods from the factory floor in China – right to your door.
You no longer need to worry about customs clearance, tax, insurance, duty, import permits and quarantine. No more paperwork, no need to arrange your own marine cargo insurance.
We can export FCL (full container load) and LCL (less than container load) to most major ports in the world using China Shipping or other major shipping lines. We arrange the entire process from exporting your goods from China to delivering to your door.
Would You Like to Save Up to 50% On Your Shipping Costs?
Here are two Easy Imex 20 ft mixed containers at the Shanghai depot. They contain 28 cubic metres of space and cost $160 AUD “all in” per cubic metre to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. £65 to Felixstowe in the UK. They depart once a month for smaller members orders. This allows you to import at the same cost as if you were importing a full container yourself and compete with larger players on freight prices. The savings are often as much as 50% of normal LCL shipments. See “mixed container” for more information.
Will You be Stung by Nasty Fees when Your Goods Arrive?
For any of you who have 'dabbled' in importing goods before, you may have found that once your goods arrived, you got a nasty surprise when you were invoiced for the import fees.
Unfortunately many people pay too much when they're importing. Yes there are essential costs such as tax and duty. However all the other charges: freight, paperwork, document handling, port charges, customs clearance and transport are often charged at higher rates than they should be.
At EASY IMEX we look after our members interests not just with exporting but the entire import process right up to getting your goods to your door. You will find all the fees are the cheapest possible rates due to the volume we bring in and we are very transparent about these charges from the outset.
How Much Does Shipping Cost? A quick warning about factory freight quotes...
We don't put shipping prices on our website as they change regularly, and the total cost depends on the specifics of your order. However, you can fill in our enquiry form and we'll happily give you a quote. Our mixed container service costs $160 per cubic metre "all in" to the east coast of Australia (Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane) and €65 per cubic metre to Felixstowe in the UK.
A quick warning! Factories will often quote you freight prices – which don’t include all the costs at YOUR end. Things like customs clearance, port and handling, trucking from the port, GST, quarantine fees etc.
So you get an artificially low figure and a nasty surprise when your goods arrive. Make sure you are being quoted on the FULL cost – not just part of the cost.

"I FEEL SECURITY KNOWING THAT EVEN THOUGH YOU MAY BE SENDING LARGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY HALFWAY AROUND THE WORLD, YOU ARE GOING TO GET THE PRODUCT THAT YOU REQUESTED"
On one of our container shipments, we had some product damaged due to loading errors. When we received the product we unloaded it and took pictures and contacted Adam with the managed results. He credited us for the damage and also made changes in the loading procedure so this would not happen again. Everyone makes mistakes, it’s how you handle the mistakes with your customers that installs confidence.
I feel security in knowing that even though you may be sending large amounts of money halfway around the world, you are going to get the product that you requested.”

“WE HAVE NOW BEEN DEALING WITH EASY IMEX FOR 18 MONTHS. THEY ARE AN INTEGRAL PART OF OUR TEAM ”
When we first looked at buying from China, we were told many sad stories of losing money, non delivery of goods and just not receiving what you had ordered. The first thing we did was look for a procurement agent that we could communicate with and trust. We found Easy Imex.
We have now been dealing with Easy Imex for the past 18 months. They are an integral part of our team.
We have had several visits to China, but it is no longer a requirement for us. Easy Imex are our eyes and safety net. When dealing with China, everything is paid in advance. You need to be confident that when you make that payment it is actually going to a supplier that will produce the goods.
The Easy Imex payment process is the best protection. Your payments are paid into the Easy Imex trust account. Usually a deposit is paid, and the balance of money is not passed on to the supplier until the goods have been checked and loaded into the container.
Easy Imex have a great support team constantly looking for the goods we require. One supplier is never enough. Easy Imex makes sure that you will not be taken advantage of once a supply chain is established.
We would thoroughly recommend Easy Imex to everyone.

“WE FELT VERY WELL CARED FOR AND THAT OUR TIME WAS VALUED AND THEY HAD A CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT WE NEEDED TO ACHIEVE”
They have been an amazing asset to us as a start up in terms of establishing sound manufacturing relationships and negotiating the maze of international shipping logistics. I have found their level of advocacy for their clients to be exceptional.
The support and organisation in arranging a manufacturing visit and supplier negotiation on very short notice was fantastic. We felt very well cared for and that our time was valued and they had a clear understanding of what we needed to achieve.
Having an experienced third party handle the logistics of shipping and delivery is an enormous benefit. From the time saving to the review and management of costs this part of their service alone more than outweighs the cost of using Easy Imex.

“OVER THE 12 CONTAINERS ORDERED TO DATE PRODUCT QUALITY HAS BEEN EXCELLENT”
We engaged Easy Imex in 2009 to source a range of consumable products, esky bags and promotional merchandise. The service was fast, efficient and professional. We'd previously worked with another importer and had some major quality issues. Over the 12 containers ordered to date the product quality has been excellent. I'd happily endorse Easy Imex to other importers.
They handle everything. It really is as simple as choose what you want, get the FOB and landed at your front door price, pay and that is it. They do what they say they do, it is as simple as that.”

“EVERYTHING THAT THEY SAID WAS TRUE AND THERE WAS NO GLOSSING OVER OR FAVOURITISM SHOWN TOWARDS ANY PARTICULAR SUPPLIER ”
Easy Imex are an easy (no pun intended) company to deal with.
They have a wealth of knowledge of the local Chinese market and have substantial contacts with reliable Chinese factories. They are also fully aware of the pitfalls of companies dealing within the Chinese system and they are truthful and honest in their approach with my company in pointing out the failures within the Chinese system.
Having said that they are also quick to point out the advantages and the positive aspect with doing business within the Chinese market place and only recommend quality suppliers. They carry themselves as professional hard working company with a healthy appreciation for customer service and satisfaction.
I personally visited the Easy Imex operation in China and laid out with them what products as a company we were looking to import. They organised several Chinese Factories and companies to visit and inspect during my time there.
Everything that they said was true and there was no glossing over or favouritism shown towards any particular supplier. The fact that we also had a English speaking Chinese national, employed by Easy Imex to basically act as the liaison between myself and the suppliers (at no extra cost) was an immense help, and made negotiations a lot easier.
My first shipment went to plan and the quality and inventory of the goods was spot on as agreed to, and likewise with all my other subsequent shipments. All customs, importation and shipping documentation was all in order and the shipments have passed through Australian Customs and Quarantine without a hitch.

"OUR RELATIONSHIP HAS GONE BEYOND A USER AND SERVICE PROVIDER"
The time we have spent together in discussing our business needs has been truly invaluable.
Easy Imex reduced the complications in dealing with overseas business transactions and taking out risks. The risks that were mitigated by Easy Imex include; prospect factory shortlists, site visits, product inspections, contract negotiations and payment strategies.
Using Easy Imex allowed us to go about our business as usual while they got the transaction sorted out and managed the expected timeline. They informed us when issues were likely to happen and what alternate pathways were available to get the goods to its destination sooner.
They are experts in their field and truly help take the risk and the pain away from dealing with overseas transactions. I trust Easy Imex implicitly. Our relationship has gone beyond a user and service provider.
