April 1, 2024

Ordering a second-hand vehicle from Japan involves several steps. Here’s a general guide to help you through the process:

  1. Research and Decide: Determine the type of vehicle you want, such as make, model, year, and features. Consider factors like fuel efficiency, maintenance costs, and availability of spare parts.
  2. Find a Dealer or Exporter: Look for reputable dealers or exporters who specialize in importing vehicles from Japan. You can find them through online searches or by asking for recommendations from others who have imported vehicles before.
  3. Browse Inventory: Once you’ve found a dealer or exporter, browse their inventory to find the vehicle that meets your criteria. Many dealers have websites where you can view their current stock and specifications. There are many mega sites which advertise IIIrd. party inventory, to name a few in Japan are Goonet & Carsensor, whose data is linked to other smaller websites. These are like hubs to connect buyer with seller, and unlike auctions you can build a relationship for future.
  4. Inspect Vehicle History: Request a detailed vehicle history report to ensure the car has no major accidents or issues. This can often be provided by the dealer or exporter and in case of auctions and inspection report is attached with every entry vehicle available at auction..
  5. Contact the Seller: Reach out to the seller to inquire about the vehicle’s condition, maintenance history, and any other relevant details. You may also negotiate the price at this stage. In case of Nexuss Int’l, you are free to negotiate any vehicle available in Japan.
  6. Arrange Payment: Once you’ve agreed on a price, you’ll need to arrange payment. Many exporters accept bank transfers or other secure payment methods. Be sure to clarify any payment terms and conditions before proceeding.
  7. Organize Shipping: Coordinate with the exporter to arrange shipping to your desired destination. They will handle the logistics of transporting the vehicle from Japan to your location.
  8. Customs Clearance and Import Duties: Be aware of any customs clearance procedures and import duties that may apply in your country. Your exporter should be able to provide guidance on this process.
  9. Receive the Vehicle: Once the vehicle arrives at your destination, inspect it to ensure it matches the description and is in good condition. If there are any issues, contact the exporter immediately to address them.
  10. Register and Insure: Finally, register the vehicle with the appropriate authorities in your country and obtain insurance coverage before driving it on the road.

It’s essential to do thorough research and work with reputable dealers or exporters to ensure a smooth and successful transaction.
