Japan Auto Direct provide the most informed and reliable importing service for Japanese imports Canada wide. With our knowledge of the import process and access to over 150,000 cars at auction each week, we will be able to source the best car for you.
The process is simple and is typically involves the following steps.
1. Once you are ready to go ahead we will require a 200,000 Japanese Yen deposit. We will then get all the necessary details concerning the vehicles you are looking for e.g Colour, Kilometers and options aswell as your budget and begin searching for cars that fit your description.
2. When appropriate vehicles are found we will send you photos and a full description. If the vehicle is at auction we will also give you a translation of the auction sheet as well as the start price and expected sale price. We will then provide you with a first hand description of the vehicle from Auction. With this information you can decide if you'd like to bid and up to how much. Please note that we will never bid on a car for you without your full approval and designated budget. Ultimately the decision is yours and we will do our best to find you a car that closely matches your ideal vehicle.
3. Once your vehicle is purchased an invoice will be emailed to you within 24 hours. A full set of photos will be sent once the car hits our holding yard; usually 3-4 days after purchase. You will then be required to pay the FOB price (ex Japan) plus the shipping cost directly into our Japanese company bank account within one working day. Shipping cost will vary with with size of the car but generally will range between 120,000 and 180,000 to Westminister or Vancouver Port. Please call or email us directly for a customized quote. All paperwork necessary for export will be arranged and the car will be transported to the wharf for shipping via container to Vancouver, Canada. Cars are put on the first available ship usually 2-3 weeks after purchase. Shipping times vary, but will generally take around 10-14 days.
The ENTIRE process TAKES 5-6 WEEKS from the date of purchase.
