Importing used vehicles from Japan

Importing used vehicles from Japan

Generally, used vehicles from Japan are of high quality, well serviced, reasonably priced and are of low mileage in comparison to other markets. This has made them very popular around the world.

When importing a used vehicle from Japan you should be aware of the following points:

- Check the import regulations of the destination country with the appropriate authorities.

- Check the customs duties payable.

- Confirm the presence of an Export certificate which the Exporter (car dealer) should have, if the Exporter does not have the Export certificate, the vehicle cannot be exported from Japan.

- Ensure that the vehicle has undergone any mandatory pre-shipment inspections in Japan e.g. JEVIC RWI or Odometer inspections, as required by the importing country.
