17 steps to inspect a baby stroller

Are you looking for an agent to get your baby strollers inspected? Need some help to develop trust of your customers? Don’t have a quality inspector yet? If yes, then we are here for your assistance. There is nothing more comforting than providing a high quality baby product and receiving client’s satisfaction in return.

We, at River Baby, understand the efforts required to build a satisfactory clientele and sustain them by maintaining quality and consistency in the products. We realize that every baby stroller supplier has to go through an extensive procedure to market and convince the customers to take interest and invest in their products. We take pride in ensuring that our inspection will not only highlight the quality of your products but will also prove them safe and secured. We do standard but higher than standard.

River Baby understands that the baby industry revolves around the notion of safety and sturdiness because of the nature of use. The baby products have to be strong while safe at the same time so that nothing can go wrong in any situation. It is, therefore, necessary for all baby stroller suppliers in China, be it is a small vendor and large enterprise to always perform inspection and quality check before sending out the products in the market.

With that being said, River Baby is ready to take on this responsibility because we have a standard testing equipment and an experienced team of inspectors who are well aware of the market stan- dards. We follow a systematic way of inspection that doesn’t leave any page unturned to prove that the products are of standardized quality.

Our Process of Inspection

Since we believe in providing result-oriented OEM/ODM/Agent services, we have designed a de- tailed inspection process that focuses on each and every part of the baby stroller. We do inspec- tion per AQL standard + our own standard + client’s special standard, we send the complete in- spection report to client for approval before the shipment. For all customers, who used to follow us, they can blindly go for the supplier or manufacturer we recommend because our words are based on extensive research and analysis.

Wrapping Up

Now that we have explained the entire process of our inspection for baby stroller, our customers can be rest assured that they are sending their products in the right hands. The thing that makes us different from others is our special privilege to our clients where we used to clean all products and parts on our own before they are sent for final boxing. We have trained our workers in such a way that they are well aware of their responsibilities and try their level best to notify our clients about the flaws (if any) so that they can correct them before sending their products to the end users.
