Buying Cars from Shops

There are tons of car shops in Japan where cars are prepared to sell domestically. You can visit their website and share a link with us so that we will take care of everything for you!

Pros and Cons

Pros: Many photos (sometimes videos) are available, and some cars are ready for sale (meaning that conditions fit to pass the required road inspection).
Possible to reach out to the seller for additional information via phone/email.
Prices are negotiable (the fee for the negotiation will be 50% of the discounted amount).
You can customize the car you buy without shipping it anywhere else.

Cons: Not all the shops agree with selling cars to other companies, selling them to end users only.

Service fee:  ¥150,000

Vehicle buying price* (No sales tax needed): ¥500,000

calculation

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:

  • Customs clearance in your country
  • Registration costs in your country

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

*Vehicles over 500,000 yen have an additional 5% service fee from the amount exceeding 500,000 yen.

  e.g., Vehicle buying price: 1,000,000yen
 Service fee: 150,000 yen  + 25,000 yen (500,000 yen*5%) = 175,000 yen.

*Domestic delivery cost depends on car condition and delivery method.

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

*Auction Successful Bidding fee (or auction charges) depends on the auction house and method of bidding.
