This is the fun part! As soon as you see a vehicle you like you can put a bid on it. Simply email us the bid number to info@zenautoworks.ca Before bidding we will provide you with a full translation of the auction sheet (this is the sheet which comes with every vehicle and details any faults, repairs or extras, along with both interior and exterior grade) as well as this translation we will also provide you with an estimated sale price.

PAYMENT

Once you win your vehicle at auction we issue an invoice and request payment in Canadian funds within 3 working days. Once payment is received your car is transported from the auction house to Nagoya, JP for an engine leakdown test, 30min road test and high resolution photo gallery.

SHIPPING AND CUSTOMS CLEARANCE

Shipping generally takes 6-8 weeks from purchase date. When your vehicle arrives at port it will needed to be cleared through customs before it can be released... Zen takes care of this with our trusted broker and arranges a full import document binder for your records. We will help with inland shipping and provincial registration and ensure that getting you on the road is a simple and fun process.
