How do I Buy Cars
How do I Buy Cars?
Yes, another great question people often ask when attempting to buy cars for the first time from Japan. The first main step is to decide if you want to buy from dealer stock or direct from Auction. Here is some information about dealer stock and auction for comparison.
Ok if you have read that page and decided or you are already warmed up with enough ideas we will explain the simple steps to obtain your car directly from either stock or auction. It’s a simple process and won’t take long to complete.
Search for Cars
The best thing to do now is to start your search for cars via the auction website here. With access to over 135,000 cars weekly you will find the car you need. If it is not here we can help you buy from dealer stock on Goo-Net or Car sensor via these links. The cars found on these links are found on other portals who portray them as stock. Auction cars are unique and constantly changing.
Find the best car or cars that suit what you are looking for. There is no limit to the number of cars you can search for but only a limit on how many we can afford to buy at one time 🙂 Have a look at both the auction and dealer stock and see which style suits you best. Mostly our enquiries come via the auction system.
