USED CAR AUCTIONS
If you can’t find the vehicle you want in our stock, you can search for your vehicle through the Japanese Wholesale Vehicle Auctions, including USS AUCTIONS. There are so many vehicles in the Japanese auto auctions, we can almost guarantee we can find you the car specification you are looking for.
We offer access to Japan-wide auctions (107 Auctions) and can arrange for inspections on all target units before the auction commences. Sometimes, our inspectors can call you from right beside the car.
We offer a ‘seamless purchasing experience’. We can handle all aspects of your vehicle/s, from auction bidding, inspection, through to shipping to your country, by container or RO/RO.

A TT copy is sufficient for proof of payment until payment has been confirmed in Japan (Usually 5 business days maximum if payment has been made within 48 hours). Just ask as about your Country.
