How it works: Extended

If you’re happy to go ahead and want to purchase through us, then to start the process you will need to pay the brokers fee. By paying this fee you agree to pay for all associated fees and charges applicable to purchasing your vehicle. If you decide to change your mind before purchasing a vehicle then 90% of this fee will be returned to you, minus $100.00 per calendar month.
If after purchasing a vehicle you change your mind, the entire broker’s fee will be forfeited and re-auction fees may apply.


After payment has been made we will start looking for your vehicle, please advise us what it is you’re looking for in as much detail as possible.


We will search the auctions we prefer to use for vehicles matching your description. Once a vehicle comes up we will notify you by email. If you are interested, we will, if possible, inspect the vehicle in person and bid on your behalf to a maximum that you advise.

If you are successful, payment will need to be made immediately to our Agent in Japan


Once the vehicle is paid for, we will organise for it to be prepared and transported for shipping. This includes obtaining the import approval from the applicable workshop complying your vehicle and all the necessary government documents for entry into Australia. Once your vehicle arrives, you will need to pay for the shipping portion of your vehicle.


We will then organise for your vehicle to have its compliance work done. This includes taking the vehicle for inspection at the applicable transport authority. Once completed you will need to pay for this portion of your vehicle. In addition the AC will need to be recharged; we can have this done prior to delivery at a reduced cost of $150.00. All vehicles imported to Australia are to be CFC Free or a licence is required. In our experience the cost of the one time licence far exceeds the price to simply de-gas and re-gas your vehicle. At this time we can organise any service work you would like done prior to delivery.


Your car is now ready for delivery! We will then drop the vehicle to you or you can collect from us.
Your vehicle will need to be registered before you can drive it on the road – alternatively we can organise this for you.
