    "Great customer service, great communication from these guys. They will not recommend a car if just to make a sale, they try and get the best cars for the best deals. i found that 90% off the cars i was looking at buying, where better than what i could get in here. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone that wants to import a vehicle from Japan. A+++"

- Stephan N
    "Can't speak highly enough of the excellent service I had with 'import your car'. Professional advice on cars I chose.....whether they were good enough or not to bid on. Contact from start to finish. Advice all the way through. I ended up with a fantastic car here in Christchurch for a few thousand less than I would've paid buying from a dealer. THANK YOU!!"

- Gina C
    "This was the first time that I imported a car from Japan. After several contacts to Nick and reading the comments I decided to take a chance. I did the procedures and everything was very well. Nick was very attentive and quick to take care of me from the beginning. I'm sure I would suggest doing this service with the company. The car arrived impeccable and I did not have to make any bureaucratic process. I have no doubt that I will contact the company again for future transactions. I`m very happy. Thank you very much!"

GOOD TIME TO IMPORT?

Surely yes. Prices are low, auctions are open and shipping as usual.  
Coronavirus health effect on imported cars - is 0. Or no effect.
Effect on car prices - yes. Cars are selling much cheaper at Japanese Auctions now. 
Choose to persist and act while this good-price window exists.
Coronavirus have made online companies more safe to use. And importing is done purely online. 

So when it comes to importing a car from Japan:

- Buying a car from Japan is purely online undertaking. Auctions are viewed online, in the comfort of home.

- As we know, the virus can not survive for long. According to the National Institute of Health (USA), it stays in the air for up to 3 hours, and on the surfaces for up to 3 days.

-  Cars spend 2-3 weeks on the ship during the freight, and no virus can survive that. 

- The virus is passed human to human, and can’t be passed car to human. 

- Also, every car is Steam Cleaned in Japan before going on the boat - it’s MAF requirement. 

- Also, the Japanese are well ahead in preventing measures. 

- Auctions and Shipping Cargo Ports in Japan are restricted to the general public, and only local Japanese workers are allowed into the facility, and they undergo daily screening. 

- Ports are open and will be working as usual - shipping cars.

So it’s safe to import a car from Japan. Check the picture below. In Japan cars are not evendriven in front of the bidders, but displayed on the screen instead. People have a minimal contact with cars.  Everything is digitalised. 

And the good news is, cars are selling for much less at Japanese Auctions now.

Did you know we can import any car which is 20 years and older? 

8 REASONS 
TO IMPORT

- Most of the cars you see for sale in New Zealand were originally imported from Japan.
- Japanese Auctions Are Regulated. 
- Car condition - Auction grading.
- Physical inspection. 
- It's just a smart way to buy a car. 

Heavy duty machines? WE Can import too!

About Japan and Japanese Cars
Many ask us: "Why cars coming from Japan with such low mileage?" 

The answer is, in Japan, and most cities have populations from 3 to 15 million people. Only 30% of the land is suitable for a living - the rest are mountains. Traffic is congested, so most people drive their car only after work or on the weekend, and they park next to the train station and commute to work. Additionally, because traffic is so dense, drivers generally don't drive fast nor long distances and have to stop for traffic lights every few hundred meters. All motorways are toll charged, so car travel is not cheap. To travel from Niigata to Tokyo by highway can cost up to 300 NZD, to cover 400 km.
All of these factors contribute to Japanese drivers' driving less. Hence, not only the mileage is low, but cars are not used much and are still in great condition, which is good for us.  


Another question is: "Why there are so many cars coming from Japan?"

The answer is simple. Japan is a small country by size but has a population of 127 million people. It's a big market for Japanese domestic car manufacturers like Toyota or Honda and many European brands. These car giants market heavily to make people change for a newer car. As a result, many barely used vehicles are available for sale every year. 


People also ask us: "Do car owners in Japan get their cars regularly serviced?"

Yes. When sold new, each car is serviced after 3 months and again after 1 year, for FREE, by the dealers such as Toyota and Honda. Japanese drivers purchase mechanical warranties and insurance and keeping their vehicles well maintained as a part of the deal. Dealer urge buyers to regularly service their cars – advice which Japanese drivers follow thoroughly. Also, the Japanese car owners understand that their car will have a better trade-in value when properly serviced. Usually, they trade-in their car within 5 years and maintain a good service history, to get a higher trade-in price. The dealer also services their cars before re-sale at the auctions. 
 
90% cars we receive from Japan come with a full service history.

It is safe to import a Japanese car.
