Buying Cars

Diverse Sources for Your Perfect Car

Auctions

We believe it’s not a good idea for you to choose a car out of millions of them listed in an auction without experience, knowledge, and understanding of the rules and risks. It doesn’t matter how much time you spend just reading and finding the vehicle information, it only takes practice. And that’s one of the reasons why the auction system in Japan allows only licensed members to join and bid. In other words, Auctions are places where car industry professionals buy and sell cars. 

And that is exactly where we come in! If you are looking for a car and want to buy it with complete peace of mind, we are here to support you. With our many years of experience as licensed auction members, we will choose and bid on a car with you based on the detailed information you give about the vehicle, helping make this process as smooth as possible!

Pros and Cons

Pros: Price/condition is good balanced – a lot of cars in one place.

Cons: Information about cars can only be obtained from the auction sheet – only a few photos.

After the car arrives, you must proceed with customs clearance and registration in your country.
Following your country’s regulations, the expenses below should be paid from the customer’s side:

*Overseas shipping cost depends on vehicle size (m3). We confirm shipping rates every time we book a car.

*Some countries require pre-shipment inspection before the shipment (example HERE).
