Highest Bidder Wins
Japanese car auction works like any other type of auction, meaning the highest bidder wins.
If you have no idea on how much the bidding price should be, just contact us. we can provide some information about the average price and what a workable bidding price is.
Auction bidding is by proxy, so even if you bid a large amount, you will only pay just over what the next highest bidder was willing to pay.
For example You are prepared to bid a maximum of 300,000 yen on a car and the next highest bidder is 200,000 yen. You then win the car at 201,000 yen and not at 300,000 yen
