Do you know that Japanese auctions are the cheapest way to buy a car?
Millions of used cars are exhibited in used car auctions in Japan every week, and the number is increasing year by year.
Our company has been making successful bids for overseas customers for over 10 years and providing high-quality Japanese cars as a licensed member who can make a successful bid for a limited number of used cars.
With the know-how we have cultivated over many years, we are able to buy a vehicle at the cheapest price in an auction and sell it to our customers at a low price. Why can you sell cheaply here? We will explain.
Why can we sell cheaply at an auction? The answers are these five:
- Participating in nationwide auctions
- We are familiar with models that can be bought cheaply
- Highly specialized staff inspect vehicles on-site
- The bidding fees are free of cost
- The cost after purchase is reduced to a minimum
1. Participating in nationwide auctions
Since we are affiliated with local auction venues all over Japan, we can understand the characteristics of each region and purchase the vehicle of your choice at the lowest price. Local regions such as Hokkaido and Tohoku (northern part of Japan) and Kyushu region (westernmost part of Japan) generally have higher inland charges to be delivered to the yard, but many cars can also be purchased cheaply in anticipation of bidding. We are familiar with the venues where it is possible, and it is possible to buy cheaply. There are also venues where you can buy cheaply depending on the car model, grade, and characteristics of the vehicle.
There are venues where you can buy 4WD and trucks cheaply, and we will select a venue where you can buy cheaply according to your request and guide you.
2. We are familiar with models that can be purchased cheaply and market prices
A significant number of vehicles are auctioned every day, but none of them are exactly the same. Therefore, technology is required to accurately predict the winning bid amount from the vehicle condition and provide it to the customer. Our company records the past successful bid information with our own system and calculates the market price for each model from the system, so we can estimate the market price correctly. Together with this, our sales staff can provide the cheapest vehicle that meets the customer's request, taking into account various conditions such as model year, model code, mileage, and vehicle condition with more than 10 years of know-how.
3. Highly specialized staff inspect vehicles on-site
Usually, a bidding agent makes a successful bid for a vehicle online, you cannot see the actual vehicle. But our company is different! Specialized staff affiliated with us will inspect the condition of the vehicle before the auction and actually start the engine to check if there is any problem, so we can estimate the price more accurately and offer it cheaply.
4. No agency fee
You need to pay a deposit before the auction, but the full amount will be used for the vehicle so no agency fee will occur! Of course, you can search for vehicles at auction through our website for free, and there is no membership fee. As there is no agency fee, you can reduce the cost and total charge.
5. The cost after purchase is cut to a minimum
Our company exports more than 300 cars every month, and the number is increasing year by year. Due to the volume of automobile exports, we keep the various shipping costs, such as land transportation costs, shipping charges, and forwarder fees, to a minimum amount. Also, since we are affiliated with forwarders in almost all regions of the country, even if you purchase it locally, you can carry it to the nearest port and ship it, so you can reduce costs such as inland charge.
