Hello my name is Graeme Cooke and I am the owner of Autotraderimports.com

Our parent company Usedcars.Co Ltd is a member at Tokyo Chamber of Commerce and Registered Used Car Dealers!

I have been involved in cars since a very early age when my father had me help him fix his Mini in the garage by holding up the gearbox when I was ten years old. It was a great time and I always respected my father for teaching me the love of cars.


New Zealand and Motorbikes

It started by selling motorcycles at Red Baron Honda in 1988 but I  soon quickly tired of bikes with the dream of moving to cars. My focus was a position within an Auckland New Zealand Ford franchise which I quickly secured. I worked with Ford New Zealand for about 4 years and soon got a taste for imported cars as they were arriving into NZ.

My inspiration changed for a few years as I began driving tour coaches around New Zealand which was a fabulous experience. Within a short time, I was one of the top drivers in the country.

As time drew on my vision dragged me towards the car business once more and the buses were left behind. Within a short time, I was back into cars selling for Mazda, Mitsubishi, Toyota, and Mercedes, quickly moving through the ranks into senior management.


Going To Japan

My dream and ambition one day put me on a plane to Japan back in 1999 and I have never looked back.

Graeme Cooke lives in Chiba with his wife Tomoko and two teenage boys. While the boys don’t enjoy my enthusiasm for cars they love to see what new auto will turn up next in our driveway.

Auto Trader Imports has a staff of 5 including its Japanese office and is located in Chiba!
