Benefits for You

Both you and our inspector in Brazil will personally inspect the material you hand-select during the trip, giving you complete peace of mind.

No hassle – we unload the containers at our distribution centers for you and deliver them directly to your door using our 18 wheelers. *

Don’t want all of your material at once? We’ll store it free of charge at our Distribution Centers for up to 3 months after arrival. *

Brazilian-American company owners - we have unrivaled local knowledge.

As the old adage says... go with the locals!

No need to purchase full containers from single suppliers. Since we purchase regularly from them, you have the flexibility of choosing as many bundles as you like from each factory!

*Applicable for customers with delivery locations feasible to transport from San Antonio or Charleston. In order to assure this is applicable for you, please request confirmation from Kevin Gregg (901) 351-5347.

Program Details

Entertainment - Included in the trip is dinner nightly, with after dinner cocktails on nights to be determined at a later date. Beyond that customers have the evenings free to pursue their choice of entertainment at their own discretion and cost.

Accommodation, meals and transportation in Brazil are included. We will be staying primarily at the beautiful Sheraton Hotel in Vitoria, ocean view, and traveling to the north or south of the state to select material at suppliers in those areas. Clients are responsible for their airfare to get from the U.S. to the city of Vitoria in Brazil.

Example Material Prices

Price structure formula: [(FOB price Brazil x 1.18) + Freight door to door] + sales tax, if applicable.

FOB Price: Given by the suppliers, material cost

18%: Our service fee

Freight: Includes ocean freight + trucking freight, the latter to be deter- mined in accordance to your location

Sales tax: If applicable in your area

Please note, this calculation is based on containers going straight to you. If the container has to go to our location first (for example if you can’t unload), an additional 40 cents per sq ft fee will be added.

90 day payment terms on each container (terms start when container leaves Brazil) with 10% deposit prior to containers leaving Brazil. No cancellation after it is shipped.

Minimum purchase requirement is 16 bundles (or 2 containers) per participant per trip.


NVG example for fabricator based in Houston, TX:
$3 FOB Brazil + our 18% = $3.54 + $1.3 freight = $4.84/sqft

NVG example for fabricator based in Baton Rouge, LA:
$3 FOB Brazil + our 18% = $3.54 + $1.80 freight = $5.34/sqft

NVG example for fabricator based in Nashville, TN:
$3 FOB Brazil + our 18% = $3.54 + $2.00 freight = $5.54/sqft

NVG example for fabricator based in Seattle, WA:
$3 FOB Brazil + our 18% = $3.54 + $2.25 freight = $5.79/sqft

After you return from Brazil, our Purchasing team works with the suppliers to assure accuracy before shipping. Material should be expected to arrive to you within approximately 60 days from the initial invoice.

**Customer’s participation in program is subject to credit insurance pre approval, which includes the completion of our standard credit application and potentially extra information (if requested by insurance company). If opposed to submit additional information requested by our insurance company, Pacific Shore Stones reserves the right to add extra $0.10/sqft to material cost in order to cover added insurance.
