Boutique build on an outlet budget
The mark up on consumer goods can often be more than 400%, so imagine if you could access products direct from the manufacturer saving you a tens of thousands of dollars? 
Now you can through a new Sunshine Coast-based business, Ship-Your-Reno.  
Focusing on the new home and renovation product market, Ship-Your-Reno will put you in contact with China’s leading suppliers of high-end building materials so you can build your dream home at a fraction of the cost.  
Source stunning marble or travertine tiles, two-pac cabinetry, Corian or stone baths and basins, tap ware, eco-timber decking and more.  Ship-Your-Reno has sourced the best suppliers and manufacturers in China for the building market.  All products are to Australian standards so you can be assured of quality.

For a small fee, Ship-Your-Reno will provide a contact list where you can choose from 14 suppliers including a tile factory, baths and basins, fans, furniture, kitchens, eco-decking and much more.  Through the suppliers, you will receive a full catalogue of products available, but if there is something you want but is not in the catalogue, it can be easily sourced.  
A new kitchen has never been so easy, simply send over your existing plans and choose the stone, cupboards, hinges and hardware, or better yet, get them to draw up kitchen plans for you.  Everything is custom made in China to your specifications and is shipped straight to your door.  
Tiler Craig Patterson and Rebecca Hann are the brains behind Ship-Your-Reno, a business that started out because Rebecca felt the cost of building materials was exorbitant - particularly in Australia.  
As a former air hostess, she had traveled the globe and saw a disparity in prices between Australia and overseas and so decided to source her products direct from China when she renovated her home.  
Rebecca found she was able to fit out an entire kitchen including a butler’s pantry, two-pac cabinetry, Blum hinges and stone bench tops for less than USD$8000.  She felt this was a significant saving, and one she wanted to pass on to other people who were renovating or building their dream home.  
Bifold doors are a sought-after luxury item opening up the living space between inside and out, but unfortunately are often out of reach due to their hefty price tag.  
But rather than paying over $10,000, Ms Hann bought hers direct from China for less than USD$1000. 
“I could finally buy a bifold door! I wanted to make this available to everyone, and it makes me angry that there are all these big guys out there making a fortune from people renovating or building their own home.  
“That’s where my drive comes from in this business,” Ms Hann said.  
Rebecca said clients can save close to $100,000 in costs by importing their own renovation materials direct from China.  But saving money isn’t the only bonus, clients are also adding value to the their homes and creating greater equity.  
Ship-Your-Reno is perfect for investors offering a fantastic opportunity for investors looking to renovate their properties on a budget. 
Builders can even source furniture for their spec homes! 
Not confident in souring and arranging all your product needs yourself? Let the team at Ship-Your-Reno help you.  For a higher fee, let them take the hassle out of the negotiating for you.  

Product Warranties.... Company names have been removed until sign-up

This supplier warrants each new solid surface basin and bathtub to be free from defects in workmanship and materials when used under normal conditions and maintained properly. This warranty applies to any kingkonree solid surface basin and bathtub but does not apply to damages caused by the following:
1. Accidents, physical abuse or misuse
2. Damage from heat
3. Breakage not due to a defect in the manufacture of material
4. Improper care and maintenance
5. The alteration or repair of any product by anyone who is not authorized by the company in writing.
The warranty shall be in effect for a period of 10 years from the date of shippment. This shall be instead of any other warranty, either express or implied, including but not limited to, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose.
The only company providing this warranty is *******(China), and no distributor or reseller is providing any warranty, either express or implied.
The company will repair or replace, at its option, any *********solid surface basin or bathtub that the company has found to contain a manufacturing defect and is within the period of the warranty. The liability of the Company, under this warranty, is limited solely to the repair or replacement of the Kingkonree solid surface basin or bathtub within the warranty period.
Under no circumstances will the company be responsible for any expense in connection with any repairs made by anyone other than an authorized representative of the company and******* solid surface products. All repairs must be specifically authorized by the company in writing before being undertaken.
Please Note: Your solid surface products is automatically warranted. You are not required to submit any warranty or purchase information to the company.

Your Kingkonree solid surface is made from acrylic resin that has been researched and produced to meet the specific demands of the kitchen and bathroom. This material is more resistant to surface damage than other materials but like most things, better care will make for a longer life.
Our recommendation is for cleaning your Kingkornee solid surface in powder detergent or any other soft cleaner. The special satin finish of the solid surface will improve with the use of powder detergents, but all liquid detergents will also prove satisfactory. Please be careful with drain cleaners. Make sure that the cleaning agent goes down the waste outlet and that it does not sit in the solid surface. Some drain cleaners react relatively violently as one would expect by the very nature of the requirement of the product and instructions for handling are always given precisely on the product. You may clean your solid surface periodically with a diluted bleach solution.
This material is resistant to hear and is unlikely to mark below temperatures of 360 degree. This means, in practical terms, that pots in which water and vegetables for example are boiled could left on your solid surface for a limited(short) period of time without causing damage. However extended exposure to a hot pot will cause damage. Our recommendation is to always let hot items cool before placing them in your solid surface.
Scratches and small chips from sharp utensils may occur over time through use but they can easily be removed by sanding with sanding sponge for fine scratches, and sandpaper for deeper scratches and small chips. Use a coarse sandpaper (100 or 150grit) to start, finish of with find sandpaper and a sanding sponge.
******** will offer sanding sponge together with your bathtub and basin.
