About Us

How does it work?

It’s actually pretty easy. Search for your products in our catalog, choose your Ship To country and quantity. Your Price will automatically update to include ALL the Door to Door costs, including Import Duties and Taxes. Continue adding as many products as you would like to the cart. You can then check out, pay with Stripe in a single transaction, or choose Affirm to get financed if applicable.

I can’t find the products I’m looking for.

If you can’t find the equipment you are looking for, please upload an Excel Sheet or a PDF with your Bill of Materials to our Importer of Record section, and we’ll quote it for you. We have access to the largest Supply Chain in the US, China and Singapore.

How long does it take to arrive in each country?

We can fulfill all shipments within 3 to 6 weeks. So if you are a company that forecasts your projects, it really helps to be ahead of the curve.
