We, Auto Galaxy with a lot of experience in exporting to the world market, would like to give you some hints to avoid these risks.
Does the supplier have abundant experience in exporting the micro and mini buses?
You have to be careful when you place an order with a supplier with not much experience in exporting micro and minibuses. There are some cases without knowing the rules and regulations of the country of destination after having an order from those countries and found that the country requires an export inspection certificate by OMIC or restricting the vehicle’s production year, such rules are still applied in some countries, because of not knowing these restrictions, eventually the importer will not be able to clear the customs.
A supplier who has much experience with exporting to the various countries knows the each country’s domestic affairs and its market very well can give you adequate advice of which micro and minibuses are demanded in the nation’s market.
Additionally, a company with firm channels of collecting used parts can be reliable for the aftercare in providing necessary parts for the vehicles imported.

Is it possible to purchase directly from a company which owns a micro bus?
