    As a general rule I suggest importers search for "customs broker (your city)", speaking with several companies and selecting the service that best meets your requirements.

    The post was started with wanting to compare the Brave Auto service with the TS EXPORT service, but the issues it raises are wider than just these 2 companies.

    FEES & COSTS. There are 3 main...

    JDM VIP




    By "certain" that would be most of them. You'd see the charge on your auction invoices. It's a huge industry we're part of Mark. There's room for many players, different services and...

    Dah. The content was posted here because it responds to what was said here.

    If wrong information has been posted it's probably better for readers to have the correction where they can easily find...

    Our clients normally get vehicles under their bid limit. It's very rare that they're successful right on their limit. Conversely. Some exporters who use live bidding have a clause in their terms of...

    Readers might have got the impression that USS Carquest membership was the only membership that mattered and that other memberships were in some way inferior. The comment was made in this thread Mark.

    USS Carquest membership only covers around 28 auctions. ASNET, iAUC etc. provide coverage to the other 100+ auctions not covered by USS. They are complements to (not substitutes) for USS.

    Good feature. Retaining listings in the database over a long term is useful for both locating individual vehicles outside the normal window of just a few months and being able to track sale price...

    We started exporting in the 1990's. Before the internet changed everything.

    We had 2 auction buyers who would physically go to the auctions and bring back their booty on car carriers at the end...

    Each time we place a bid we're charged for it (unless it's one of the auctions that don't charge a bidding fee). For verification you can view it on the invoice that we get from the auction house.
  11. Good question. False answer. Most of the...

    Good question. False answer. Most of the wholesale vehicle auctions charge for placing bids by proxy (a few are free). This applies even when you have direct membership, not just through the...

    Yes Boyblue. There are plenty of auctions where trucking to port is Y10,000 or less. It starts at around Y4,000 to Y5,000. If you make a list of auctions with cheap trucking (say under Y15,000) you...

    That's not too difficult.

    Choose cars:
    that are near to a port that can export to the Bahamas to minimise the trucking cost to the port.

    with low on-costs. Apart from the wholesale vehicle...

    Kelly,

    In addition to the physical inspection for evidence of tampering you can also:

    To get a copy of a vehicle's Export Certicate you need to present the vehicle's registration or de-registration papers to a Japanese vehicle registration office together with the registered seal...

    I've found that the same condition and spec vehicle can sell for vastly different prices depending on when and where it is. You can see that by looking at the auction sale records.

    This is why you...

    These people use an IP blocker on Japanese IP addresses.

    Seems they don't want people in Japan to see what they're doing.

    dah hunter is right.

    Some exporters will display Yahoo! Japan Auction listings and give the impression that it's stock that they actually hold when in fact its a current Yahoo! listing. You may...

    Thanks Steve. I agree. The JUMVEA issue is worthy of its own thread.

    First three confessions:


    For most of the time we've been exporting from Japan we haven't been members of JUMVEA.

    No, we've never returned one for defects. Clients will often buy on price, which means lower grade which means that the auction house usually wouldn't cover the claim if there was one.

    The thing...

    On the convictions there was nothing we could find on a web search. The results pages were full of Japanese dealers saying that they don't tamper with odometers. Could be a project for a Japanese...

    Hi diefenbaker. Good point. I'd suggest doing a bit of research. Get access to one of the auction aggregation systems and look at what the models you are interested in are selling for at auctions...

    Yes. Good to use caution with these cars. But there can also be legitimate cases of the odometer reading not being accurate such as when standard odometers are replaced with aftermarket units (common...
