    Default USD44.00 Snorkel

    Just saw them at the Canton Fair China, there is a company selling pretty good quality snorkels for FOB China USD44.00. I am sure the price can be negotiated down further. Their minimum order qty is 10 pcs. I think even on LCL basis, after adding all duties and taxes, these would cost around USD100 max. Thats much less than what ARB charges.
    If there is any interest then I will be glad to share the companys contact info.
    They also had some other off roading stuff like hi lift jack, air jack and a 55 liter water tank made from some kind of a pe material. Supposedly they make thes for their australian customer.

    Regards
    Sajid

    Sajjid,

    You are a very humble and honest man. Why i say this because i know people making a killing off Chinese products while you had the same option as well but opted to come clear. My hats off to you.

    Will try to get as much info as I can. Shipping cost would depend on the size of the order. In the meantime Pls do send them an email and ask for prices and other info, just incase i am unable to make it to their booth.

    SherwanSahib, I too would be making a killing had it been a business of mine to commercially import and sell these products. Its not ! So all i am doing is trying to help out other pak wheelers.

    One thing is for sure, the quality is pretty good, and for the price, its a steal!!

    Its was actually a compliment, i suppose the words didn't come out right. Sorry for that.

    I myself buy stuff from china to fulfill my hobbies at a decent cost.
    Mostly i get stuff from here Alibaba.com Wholesale Platform - Get wholesale products from China wholesalers!.
    I have never had any quality nor delivery issues. Very nice people to deal with too.

    Lol, Sir I know it was a compliment, and I thank you for that. What I had meant to say was that I do not wish to profit on this discovery, thats all.

    Thanks for sharing the Ali Baba link, I will soon check it out.

    Sajjid, this is great. I want a snorkel and a high lift jack. I hope your thread gets the attention it deserves and lots of people order so that we can make this even more feasible. Please do take down there contact details if you have time, so we can call them and get busy ordering.

    Rao Sahib, Assalamwalikum, the contact info is on their webpage.
    I ordered a snorkel and a water bladder. The water bladder is made for an austrlian company which sells for almost thrice the FOB value.

    The water bladder quality seems to be decent and as advised earlier snorkel quality is also good. Did not see the high lift jack so cant comment. I do know that the US made Hi Lift jack also weighs around 16 to 18kg.

    Oh and also their exhaust jack is also made for the same austrlian company and is an excellent value for money.

    ALso came across many vendors selling winch + some were selling heavy duty bumpers.

    And in Dubai, in the main market there is a shop selling heavy duty bumpers made exactly like ARB, but at a fraction of a price, ie USD300 to USD500-
