Supplying worldwide markets through worldwide sourcing. From Japan, the United States and Europe we can supply the vehicles you require.
We’ve been exporting used vehicles from Japan to dealers and other operations looking to import cars from Japan since 1998. Because of our dedication to hands-on personalized service, we still have clients registered with us who have been using our services since we first started out in the business over seventeen years ago. How many Japan car dealers can say that? Business has been good to us here in Japan and we like being able to pass that along to our clients.
If you need left hand drive vehicles our United States operation is there to help. You can expect the same great service and whether you’re looking for classic autos, RVs or a Harley we know where to buy so you get the best deals. There is nothing like local, on the ground knowledge and unlike Japan, in the US auctions are often not the best or cheapest places to buy.
Is Japan always the cheapest place to buy right hand drive cars? Most Japanese exporters would say yes and many importers would agree. But they would be wrong. If you are looking for certain European models of cars in right hand drive then Europe and the UK is now the place to look. Getting cars out of the UK at the right price is not easy but once again you can rely on us and our on the ground local knowledge to deliver your car safely and promptly.

“We have been using the services of JAA (Simon Burger) since 1999.We have a great working relationship, considering we are at opposite sides of the globe ! Simons in-depth knowledge of how the auctions work, and his ability to select only the very best examples for us and our customers has been invaluable over the years. Many a time a car that looked great in the photos, and great on the general auction sheet, has had other costly underlying problems that many other exporters would have simply brushed aside just to get a quick sale. It’s this type of knowledge, experience and trust that money just can’t buy, that sets Simon and JAA apart from the rest. We hope to continue our brilliant working relationship with JAA long into the future and maybe one day, after all these years we will finally meet face to face !”
HOW TO BUY – THE EXPORT PROCESS
We’ll search for the cars you want, not just fill up your mail box with automated car search results from Japanese auto auctions.
What usually happens when you ask an auction site for a genuine grade 4, 1995/96 Toyota Supra SZ-R, normally aspirated 6 speed manual with up to 80,000kms on the clock? Typically, you get an inbox full of Japanese car auctions for Supras, twin turbos, manuals and autos of various grades with all kinds of mileage. These are search results off the chassis type number, JZA80, that all these cars share. We won’t do that. We won’t email a car to you that we wouldn’t buy for ourselves. Read more
Basically, once you hit the order button for any car in a real auction, you’ve engaged us to do all we can to get the cars you’ve chosen. Once a firm bid is in, we will be taking a look at the car and going over its spec sheets. If we see any potential problem or have any special advice that should influence your bid price, we contact you immediately. Otherwise, your bid stands. There’s no need to deal with separate Japanese used car importers. On the order sheet, you will find a space for comments in which you can stipulate any purchase conditions you might have. For example: “I have set bids for four Pajeros, but only need two of the four”.
“I took a mate of ours from Melbourne up the beach on Sunday, and just had to send you these pics. That’s one happy Delica. Handled the sand no dramas. We took it right up to island point, about 50ks up the beach, so it was driving 50ks on sand, right beside the ocean. The beach access to Rainbow was not open, otherwise we would have headed there, and had some lunch. Saw some whales and lots of bikini clad women. If you ever come to Queensland for a holiday, come spend a couple of days with us and we’ll take you up there. It is a magic spot.” Mr. Al Crampton, Noosa, QLD, Australia
OUR ONLINE AUCTION SYSTEM – ACCESS MILLIONS OF VEHICLES
There are quite a few Japanese used car dealers out there offering auction services, but we think we have the best online used car auction system available. Our existing clients who have seen and used others think so too. So what’s different about it as compared to the websites for other used car dealers in Japan?
The method of bidding for cars at Japanese auto auctions is probably unique in the world. Buyers who have come to an auction with us have been quite stunned at the computerization and speed at which cars are auctioned off, with some of the larger Japanese car auctions selling 4 cars at the same time at up to twelve a minute. But take a look at the numbers. How else do you auction off 6,000 cars in a day? At a rate of 400 cars/hour, you’d still need 15 hours, which is why some of these auctions start at 9am and go through midnight. Read more
“We have bought several vehicles via Simon and find the service excellent and absolutely trustworthy. If you have any questions, just ask them and you will get response. Every transfer was successful and therefore we recommend Simon especially while he speaks multiple languages. Thank you Simon, looking forward to the next one!”Mr. Nick, Netherlands
