Sourcing Bali

Personal Shopping Services - Shopping & shipping made Simple                  

If you’re building or renovating and plan to visit Bali to source for furniture, building materials, artwork, lighting or garden décor  etc – then you’ve come to the right place.  Sourcing Bali can assist with all of your personal shopping and shipping needs.

Shopping services
Our personal shopping services are based on 5 or 8 hour programs, include an air-conditioned car with trained driver, and a dedicated Account Manager who will assist you with finding the items that you are looking to buy.
You will be introduced to a wide range of suppliers and manufacturers – depending upon your needs.  You can even email us prior to your visit and share details of any custom designs that you’re looking to find.  (Not applicable to fashion, fashion accessories, handicrafts or gift items).Custom order are always welcome.

All purchases made on the day from stock and paid directly to the supplier will be collected the following day by our cargo crew, ready for packing and shipping. For any items that need to be ordered, we charge 15% service fee.  This fee is for the placement of orders, monitoring production, reporting on progress and most importantly, to conduct full quality control inspections to check for colour, size, finish and construction. We also send images of the completed orders once they’ve passed QC to give full peace of mind.

At the end of the trip, the Account Manager prepares a detailed list of all items under consideration.  This list includes notes from all supplier visits, details of colours, sizes, finish and prices.  This list is then given / sent to you to make your final selections.  You then give/email us with your preferences / final order and we prepare the proforma invoice.

Production of orders takes 4-5 weeks – with an additional week required for QC, collection and packing.  
Payment of order is usually done by international bank transfer. 50% deposit is required to commence the production, with balances payable upon completion, prior to shipping.
