Hi,

I am new to Salehoo and everything seems great. I am wondering if the good folks from Salehoo could verify a possible supplier for me?

CBSC from China

I found this company earlier on.

If anyone has a good supplier in mind that would be great as well.

I am from Canada.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Steve

Welcome to SaleHoo Steve,

Hardware-wholesale.com is a B2B e-marketplace and the supplier you are asking about is one of the many Chinese suppliers listed on that site. Unless they have heir own site, it would be difficult to ascertain their reliability as a supplier.

Also, since we have not tried using any of the suppliers on this particular site we cannot vouch in anyway for them.

Here are a few suppliers in our directory that you may want to check out -

Hi Steve,

Richelle is right.:) Checking on their 'about us' page it did not state if they verify the suppliers listed. And if interested, you are to send a message using their contact us form, no other information was provided regarding their address/physical location and payment methods. Clicking on CBSC as listed I didn’t see any website so I cannot really make any assessment on this company. I also haven’t personally used these sites and I cannot recommend them, especially if you are after branded goods.

In addition to the list, you may also want to see this past forum post related to your search - Link hidden: Login to view

Hi Richelle and Irene,

First I thank you very much for your quick and informative help. That is really nice to see since I wasn't sure what to expect from this site being new here.

Here in Canada as I'm sure anywhere else the prices from some companies selling skateboards is unreal. In order to compete I need a good supplier that will take me on as a new company.

My son is an avid and excellent skateboarder. We decided to get into business selling them since our area does not have a lot of competition. (physically that is). The online market is a different story though as I'm sure you ladies are already aware of.

Anyway I'm blabbing and will stop now.

I will take your great advice and links and do a little research.

If you happen to here of something along these lines please send me a gingle. I will definitely appreciate it.

Thanks so much...

Stevie B

Hi Richelle and Irene,

I checked out the links that you added and unfortunately they either don't have the proper merchandise of do not sell out of the USA.

Thanks for the effort though... Muchly appreciated.

Hi Steve,

Sorry about that. I'll try doing an off SaleHoo search for you. I'll let you know as soon as I find a suitable supplier.

Talk to you soon!

I suggest contacting them as well. If I get a reply from them, I'll let you know right away!

Hope this helps :)

Thanks Richelle

I must be on the right track because I have looked at all these sites and even bought off of wholesaleskateboard.com. They have nice prices but the cost to ship them here takes away from the competition.

I will have to try and market them differently until I come across that right supplier.

Thanks so much for your help though. It is greatly appreciated.

They must be buying from the China market or by the masses.

You're welcome Steve :)

You might be just right about your competition buying directly from China, after all it is cheapest when you go directly to the source.

Here is a supplier that might be able to help you -

You might also want to check out - Link hidden: Login to view but be wary of suppliers/sellers selling you any branded items. Always remember that 9 out of 10 times brand name items from China will just be copies.

Hope this helps. All the best!
