EMAIL US FOR FREE ACCESS TO AUCTION SEARCH SYSTEM
The very first step is to email us at email@example.com and we will help you register for direct auction system access. Once you join you will have full access to auction listings for all vehicles at ALL auction houses across Japan. This is a fast paced system with vehicle coming to market and getting sold within a couple days or hours! ZEN AUTO is your agent to make sure you don't miss out on a great purchase!
Once you have decided that you want to proceed and start the process of importing your next car we require a bidding deposit of $500. With your active bidding account, ZEN AUTO will work with you to find your ideal car. We will supply you average prices based on year/spec and offer advice on auction grading and what to expect for your budget. We can accept bidding deposits by email interac or PayPal and there is no limit to the number of bids you can make!
BID ON CARS
This is the fun part! ZEN AUTO will actively search and email you models on your list that match our high standards. Alternatively, as soon as you see a vehicle you like simply email us the bid number to firstname.lastname@example.org 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 fully imported price.
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 for further inspection or direct to port. Your choice!
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 AUTO 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.
You can now begin to enjoy life with your new car!!
