We help your company expand into new markets.

OUR SHOWROOM MAY ALSO ACT AS AN EXCLUSIVE AND CUSTOMIZED SPACE SO YOU CAN PROVIDE A COMPLETE EXPERIENCE FOR YOUR CUSTOMER.
Space Samples was born from a company with more than eight years of experience in the logistics area.
During this time, we imported and sold parts and equipment across many sectors and we become intimately aware of the difficulty in proving the quality of products only from photos.
More than that, we noted the high cost of maintaining a showroom in Brazil and the difficulty of administering it from another country.
In order to facilitate and help international trade, we created the first company in the world to offer shared storage services for the demonstration and submission of samples in Brazil.

HOW THE MONTHLY COST FOR STORAGE IS CALCULATED?
As a general rule, we charge USD 100.00 per cubic meter (approximately) of space occupied in the warehouse. Depending on the material and how it is packaged, your samples may occupy more or less space. If your products are mobile phones, 1 cubic meter is enough space to store quite a large number of units. If your product is a surfboard, 1 cubic meter may be insufficient, and, in that case, you will be charged for the amount of space required to accommodate the desired number of samples. The amount of space is calculated in multiples of 1 cubic meter. Special requirements for the maintenance of samples will be charged and billed separately. For example, if you would like to make sure that the cellphones stored in our space always have the battery charged for presentation, there will be an extra cost to manage this requirement. We will always seek to accommodate the samples into the smallest possible space.
HOW THE SHIPPING OF PRODUCTS IS CHARGED?
Some of our plans include a minimum charge which includes shipping costs. In the Basic Plan up to 3 shipments per month are covered under the minimum. What is included: transfer of the samples or merchandise to the post office or carrier, packaging, billing and payments to third parties, among other logistics-related tasks. Postage costs or costs billed to us by the carrier shall ALWAYS be charged to the customer. Billing month is based on a calendar month (from the first to the last day of a given month), and not any other unit of 30 consecutive days. Customers cannot roll over non-used shipment costs from one calendar month to the next.
HOW THE INITIAL USD 100.00 REGISTRATION FEE IS APPLIED?
This amount is charged to cover initial research and consultations with the customer concerning any Brazilian legislation and/or taxation in connection with the importing of the product, tariff classification, calculation of freight costs and insurance as well as the handling of all paperwork involved in the importation of the samples, sizing of the storage area, initial setup of the storage site, among other relevant tasks. In summary, the cost for all the work needed for the preparation of an accurate proposal for the provision of services.
WHAT IF I WANT TO CANCEL THE SERVICE?
If you no longer want to keep the samples with us, the samples shall be sent back to the place of origin and the actual shipping costs involved shall be charged, including freight, taxes, insurance and handling as well as any other out-of-pocket costs. In some cases, samples may be sold at auction and the collected funds shall be returned to the customer, minus the costs involved, including, if they occur, auctioneer’s commission, bank fees and any other charges.
Campinas is one of the leading companies in Brazil, while our location, just 15 minutes from Viracopos Airport, the main airport in Brazil, assures easy access to the whole of the country. We are a one-hour drive by car from São Paulo, the main business center in Brazil. If your sample is of a size that allows for easy transport, we can arrange for presentation in São Paulo. However, for larger products such as machines, the cost of storage in São Paulo itself would be prohibitive.
CAN SPACE SAMPLES PROVIDE SERVICES TO BRAZILIAN COMPANIES?
Yes. Brazil is a huge country and companies located in other states seeking a marketing presence in the state of São Paulo can benefit from our services.
Can i deliver my samples personally?
Yes, and, in that case, there will be no import costs, only the monthly fees for the services that you contract for will be charged after we receive the samples. Let us say you brought some samples to Brazil for a fair, when the fair ends you can leave the samples with us.
