Services We Provide
1. Payment to Auction House
We pay all costs associated with purchasing a vehicle at auction, including the auction fee.

2. Transport to Port
We provide transportation of the vehicle/s from the auction house to the Port. The cost of this transport is usually included in our Agency Fee. Note: For very large vehicles there may be additional transport and customs fees. (See Fee Structures).

3. Storage
We store the vehicle/s in a secure site at the Port until shipment. This is done free of charge for up to 1 month.

For a vehicle to be exported out of Japan it must be deregistered. We undertake all aspects of deregistration including doing all paperwork and removal of registration plates.

6. Shipping
We arrange the shipment of your vehicle to the Port you specify in the quickest, most convenient and most cost effective manner available. We schedule shipment, prepare the vehicle and arrange loading. (See Shipping Information for more details).
