If you want to buy a car in Japan you will need to use a Japanese used car exporter. An exporter will organise everything needed up until your car is on a vessel to your place of delivery. So how do you find a Japanese used car exporter and how do you get them to find the car you want?
There are many Japanese used car exporters that you can use to get your car out of Japan. The best way to find a reputable exporter is through word of mouth. You can ask on automotive forums if anybody has had any experience with a certain car exporter. You can also search for car exporters on the Internet, maybe somebody has already asked about a Japanese used car exporter and you can just read what others have had to say their.
Japanese used car exporters are also referred to as buying agents. A lot of exporters also find and buy the car you are after, this comes at a small cost but makes buying a car in Japan a pleasure. After your Japanese used car exporter has found the car for you they will organise to have it shipped out. Once the car is on the vessel it is up to you to import the car correctly.
Without knowing how to import the car before you purchase it could be a huge mistake. You could pay an importer to do this for you, or you can do it yourself. I recommend importing the car yourself as this can save you a stack of money, it’s also not that hard.
To import a car from Japan you will need to get the guide from Import a Jap Car. This will get your car into the country without any hassles. Without a quality guide to importing a car like this one you could end up paying much more then you should. In some cases the car would need to be re-exported out of the country, when this happens you have lost a lot of money! Don’t make the mistake of not knowing how to import a car from Japan.
