3 Big Reasons Why Hiring A Freelance Inspector Can Be A Very Bad Idea:

  1. Unlike a real sourcing or inspection agency that operates under a contract with the buyer and has written guarantee for the work to be performed, if this inspector does a bad job, you have no recourse against him.
  2. Do you really expect this guy to turn down a bribe from the supplier?
  3. Who else does it work for? You are crazy to let a stranger know the details of your supply chain.
