My today’s post will be devoted to auto auctions and main principles of a method of selling cars based on auction system in Japan. Strangely enough but the practice of selling cars as on auctions is not popular and even unknown to many countries. But at the same time it is quite popular in Japan. How does it work? To tell the truth the system of auto auctions in Japan is a bit complicated especially for foreigners who decided to buy a car in Japan.
Mainly Japanese who want to buy or to sell a car do it through the auctions. But keep in mind that people just cannot do it directly. In case you want to buy or replace a vehicle you have to contact a firm or company trading the cars and “holding auction membership”. So actually the system of car auctions was developed and used only by dealerships not individuals. And in fact it is controlled by Japanese law.
In case you want to deliver a vehicle from Japan you need to do the following. First of all find a reliable trade company that has an access to auction system and able to export cars abroad as well. Contact them pointing out what kind of a car you are willing to buy. Then the exporter would be bidding at the car auction, then transport the vehicle from the auction directly to a sea port terminal, complete the paperwork and finally would ship the vehicle to you. As the practice shows to buy a car from a Japanese auction is really worth doing as you can acquire a used vehicle at lower prices than at home.
