Blog How to import natural stone?

Are you curious about how to import natural stone? Maybe you’ve heard of a company that has done so already and they’ve told you all the benefits of importing: better prices to increase your margins, a greater selection of unique colors, access to higher quality materials, the ability to choose your own inventory, and much more!

Maybe you’ve also heard the negatives: rising or unclear freight costs, the hassle of unloading a container, the initial cost to purchase a container of stone, lead times from the source, etc.

In the aim of providing our customers with an even smoother buying experience, Brothers in Granite have opened a new warehouse in Houston, Texas. This gives our customers the opportunity to buy direct from the source with the same quality and service guarantees but with a much simpler and faster delivery experience.

All the prices of the slabs you see are FOB Houston, meaning all of the ocean freight and logistics costs associated with importing are already included. Since we aren’t a traditional distributor that has to pay part of their profits to the producer (we *are* the producer!) you’ll be buying slabs already in the US but paying the same prices you would as an importer!

You only have to factor in the cost of a flatbed truck, delivered from our warehouse in Houston to your door. Brothers will handle all of these arrangements and coordinate everything until the truck arrives at your business.

Even better, our customers still have the ability to choose bundles from our main factory in Brazil, giving them the ability to mix and match bundles from BOTH inventories while letting our freight professionals handle the logistics right up to the final delivery.

Feel free to choose any number of bundles that you like, submit the order, and we’ll get back to you with a real quote for those bundles and trucking to your door.
