Greatest Japanese cars, in which more than 25 years of US import regulations have already passed

There are many famous cars in Japan. Did you know that some of the famous cars, in which more than 25 years of The post Greatest Japanese cars, in which more than 25 years of US import regulations have already passed appeared first on Expert Maintenance and Buying tips - Carused.jp Blog -...

There are many famous cars in Japan. Did you know that some of the famous cars, in which more than 25 years of US import regulations have already passed, can be a real bargain? We will inform you what the 25-year regulation is about, and some tips for purchasing Japanese cars for Americans who are enthusiastic about Japanese famous cars.

What is the “25-year regulation” in the United States?

In the United States, when importing used cars, all regulations such as exhaust gas regulations and safety standards should have complied with US standards. It is true that this has become a barrier to other countries such as Japan. Also, the right-hand cars are listed as an unauthorized import car in the US.

However, in the case of old cars that have been used for more than 25 years, the above regulations are no longer applied, and in addition, right-hand drive cars can be imported. This is the 25-year regulation. To put it simply, it is similar to old characters and old stories that you can use freely without worrying about the copyright.

In fact, a Japanese car that is more than 25 years old  still has value for car enthusiasts in the United States.

Isn’t it unfair that only old cars are being sold?

As you may think, even in the United States, classic cars and right-hand drive cars, in which more than 25 years have passed, are actually very popular with enthusiasts.

In short, it’s a popular series that can be featured in the Treasure Detectives. That’s why the models, in which more than 25 years have passed, are being targeted every year. This is a secret boom in the United States. If you do not have more information first, you will miss lots of opportunities.

As you know, sports cars in the 1980s and 1990s are also very expensive in Japan. In fact, the scarcity of surviving cars has given rarity values, and one of the reasons is that they are often exported to other countries where the demands are higher than in Japan. Americans, who are enthusiastic about the niche and real cars, are always looking for classic Japanese cars, in which 25 years of regulations are invalid.

Cars that have been manufactured for more than 25 years ago are considered as “classic cars” and are highly recommended for American enthusiasts to buy.  Because the hurdles are lowered, they are easier to be imported into the United States.

Examples of popular Japanese cars, in which the 25-year regulation is already invalid

Skyline GT-R | 80-90 ‘s sports car.

It is said that GT-Rs from R32 to R34, which have special engines developed for racing, cost more than 2 million yen. Those with good condition cost as high as 3 million to 5 million yen in Japan. In the United States, the prices will soar because of their rarity.

As a car that can be sold, American dealers seem to want to proactively purchase them.

The selling prices in North America can be around 3 million and 10 million.

Since the Skyline GT-R series of this model year is also subject to the “25-year regulations”, they may be aimed at being purchased from overseas, and conversely, the opportunity for Japanese car enthusiasts to buy may be reduced. The key point for Americans is to move forward so that they can compete with Japanese vendors. Get information as quickly as possible.

The Skyline GT-R, which appears in Hollywood movies, is a series that American buyers should keep in their minds.

Celica/Crown

Toyota Celica and Crown are also popular with American buyers. In the United States, Toyota or Honda brand names create high demand. They are also very popular for women, and in general, Toyota cars have several models that American buyers should aim at buying.

Honda NSX

Considering the enthusiasts who love sports cars, Honda NSX is a car model that cannot be missed. It is widely sold around 3 million yen to around 10 million yen, and in Japan, the selling price is usually around 5 million yen, and it is often aimed at trading at a similar price in the United States. Is it because the car is famous for its engine being used in car races?

MAZDA RX-7(FD)

Cars with low production are also targeted in the United States.

Mazda’s RX-7 is currently not covered, but the type 4 of the mid-term to the type 5 of the latter-term are soon to be subject to the 25-year regulation. U.S. buyers should already be aware that the price of the series is expected to rise.

If you buy a used car, of course, you want to buy a cheap and high-quality car. It is the same in Japan and the United States. It is very difficult for American buyers to choose a good one from a number of used cars.

Therefore, it is recommended to look at reliable intermediate sites, matching sites, online sites, etc. On a used car information site like ours, the experienced staff in a car sales business updates information on recommended cars in Japan regularly. Should you have any questions please feel free to contact us at any time.

The high quality of Japanese products is internationally recognized. Even if a car is considered to be old in Japan, there are many people who want to purchase overseas. There is no doubt that American buyers will not aim for cars with the 25-year regulation.

How to buy hiace van super custom cheap

A diagnosis of Hiace model according to each customer Hiace from Toyota has been used in various areas as a freight car and The post How to buy hiace van super custom cheap appeared first on Expert Maintenance and Buying tips - Carused.jp Blog -...

A diagnosis of Hiace model according to each customer

Hiace from Toyota has been used in various areas as a freight car and pick-up car due to its high loading and seating capacity. There are many lineups that match the use scene, so when you try to buy Hiace, you may not know which Hiace is suitable.

In this article, we will introduce the diagnostic points to introduce and explain which Hiace model you should buy. Let’s choose the best Hiace in considerations of purpose, fuel efficiency, and type.

【Diagnosis】 Select by the purpose

In order to choose Hiace that matches your needs, let’s consider the purpose first.
While imagining the use scene, such as whether to carry luggage or to use as a transportation service, please check the scene where Hiace is actively involved.

1. To carry a load
One of the features of Hiace is its high loading capacity. Although there are differences depending on the type, the overall length is up to 5,380 mm, the overall width is up to 1,880 mm, and the overall height is up to 2,285 mm. Storage space is secured for both width and height. Not only it can carry a load, but also it can load ladders and other tools necessary for the transportation. There is also space for loading and unloading cargo, so it is suitable for carrying goods for both commercial and private use.

2. To use as a passenger bus
Hiace plays an active part not only in carrying cargoes but also in transporting people. There is a type that can accommodate 9 people that can be driven with a normal license, and a microbus type can accommodate up to 14 people. Although a driver’s license for large size vehicles is required, it is recommended for picking up and dropping off passengers at hotels, inns, and facilities. Because there are types with lifts or with extra space, they can also be used for assistive vehicles and infant buses.

3. To use as a passenger car
Although Hiace has a strong commercial image, it is also a suitable vehicle as a passenger car. It is popular as a family car because it has the capacity to accommodate a lot of people and luggage. It can carry items for camping and sports and is ideal for outdoor use. Compared to other models, it is easier to customize, so it is also a great point that you can create your own style.

【Diagnosis 2】 Select fuel type

After deciding the use scene, let’s move on to fuel type diagnosis. Hiace has two fuel types: gasoline and diesel. There are differences in fuel efficiency and driving performance, so let’s check which one is more suitable.

Petrol
Petrol produces power by igniting a spark plug and burning fuel in air. Since the engine can be run at a higher speed than a diesel engine, smoother driving can be achieved. However, it should be noted that a source of power comes from engine speed, so it is easily affected by the frequency of starting and stopping, the load capacity, etc., and fuel efficiency is likely to deteriorate.

Diesel engine
Diesel uses light oil as fuel and explodes compressed air to gain power. Compared to gasoline engines, the engine speed is slower, but the temporary high torque is attractive. Because it has an excellent acceleration performance, it is a recommended type for freight cars and courtesy bus when high power is required.

【Diagnosis 3】 Select the type of Hiace

Once the purpose and engine type are determined, all you have to do is select a grade. There are three types of Hiace: Hiace van, Hiace wagon, and Hiace commuter. Each has its own characteristics, so find the best grade.

Hiace van
Hiace van is a grade with a wide luggage compartment and is recommended when carrying cargoes. There are two types; long van and super long van, so if you need more space, choose a super long van type.

Hiace wagon
Hiace Wagon can accommodate up to 10 people and also has a luggage space. Although it can be used as a freight car like a van, it is also excellent for transporting people, so it can be used flexibly according to the scene.

Hiace Commuters
Hiace Commuter is a full-size Hiace with a capacity of 14 people. Since it can accommodate the largest capacity, it is suitable for picking up and dropping off passengers at hotels and kindergartens.

If you buy Hiace, let’s choose Carpaydiem!

If you want to buy a Toyota Hiace, Carpaydiem is highly recommended! We sell used cars, including Hiace, to more than 90 countries, including Europe, Oceania, and Africa. We have received great comments from users such as “I could buy a great car with great support.” If you want to use Hiace for business or private, please ask Carpaydiem in Japan!

How to buy hiace van supergl cheap

Can individuals from overseas participate in the “Used Car Auctions in Japan”? Japanese cars are popular as being strong and reliable overseas. Among The post How to buy hiace van supergl cheap appeared first on Expert Maintenance and Buying tips - Carused.jp Blog -...

Can individuals from overseas participate in the “Used Car Auctions in Japan”?

Japanese cars are popular as being strong and reliable overseas. Among them, Toyota’s “Hiace” has gained popularity in recent years.

Hiace, which is used for carrying goods in Japan, is often used for commercial purposes such as tourism overseas, so van type and commuter type are particularly popular among Hiace, and the price of used cars does not go down and remains its high value.

If you want to buy a used Hiace, the recommended way to buy a Hiace is to go through participating in used car auctions in Japan.

Therefore, this time, we will introduce how to participate in used car auctions in Japan individually from overseas.

How to Participate in Used Car Auctions in Japan

If you buy a Japanese car, Hiace, at a used car dealership overseas, many people have an experience that it was much higher than expected.It is a price that includes fees such as the margin, so if you buy it at a used car dealer, the price will definitely increase.

We recommend that you participate in a used car auction on your own.

There are two ways to participate in Japanese used car auctions. First, to participate in Internet auctions such as “Yahoo auction” which is a C to C transaction, and next is to participate in an auction specializing in used cars trading in Japan.

C-to-C trading has the advantage of being able to participate in auctions by individuals from overseas without special qualifications, but as we introduced in “How to Buy “Hiace” at a low price from Overseas?”, we do not recommend this way because there is a high risk that it would cause some troubles.

Therefore, here is how to participate in the used car auctions in Japan.

Great points of the used car auctions in Japan

In general, used car auctions involve professionals who are used car dealers, so the cars that are exhibited in auctions have usually a good quality that has passed a certain inspection.

The used car auction in Japan is held almost every day in various parts of Japan, and the number of cars exhibited is 140,000 every week, so there is an advantage that you can always find the car you want.

You can also check the used car auctions held in various places on the Internet and satellite broadcasting.

What do you need to participate in a used car auction?

Participating in a used car auction has many advantages, and you will need the following items.

  • Qualification of a “secondhand dealer” that has passed one year or more
  • Deposit and enrollment fee
  • Offices and stores for buying and selling cars
  • Joint guarantor

The above are the conditions for participating in a used car auction called USS, so what you need will depend on the auction that you are going to join.

The reason that it is difficult for an individual to participate in a used car auction is that if anyone can participate in a used car auction, a used car dealer shop will no longer be required.

Therefore, in general, only professionals who buy and sell used cars can participate.

It is possible for Individuals to participate in used car auctions in Japan

In order to participate in used car auctions in Japan, there are some things you need to prepare, but those are difficult for individuals to prepare.

So how do you personally participate in used car auctions?

In this case, you can easily get the car you want from many used cars by asking help from a professional who participates on your behalf overseas use e-commerce auctions such as overseas EC sites.

A case of participating in used car auctions in Japan from Poland

A person from Poland who have participated in used car auctions in Japan individually have purchased many classic cars through auction agents.

In Japan, there is a vehicle inspection system, and old vehicles are required to be maintained every year, so the condition of the engine system is often good, and the exterior is often well-maintained because of the habit of keeping it clean. So, it didn’t require a lot of repairs, and I could drive it without any problems.

A case of participating in used car auctions in Japan from Germany

A person from Germany who participated in used car auctions in Japan as an individual was a mechanic who drives a car without any problems while maintaining and repairing the cars that were purchased through used care auctions.

What process should be taken to participate used car auctions without being deceived?

If you want to participate in the Japanese used car auction by yourself from overseas, we recommend that you get help from an auction agency such as an overseas EC site.

However, there are a lot of auction agents, and many people do not know which one to choose from.

In the next article, we will introduce in detail how to participate in the used car auction in Japan from overseas without avoiding possibilities to be deceived.

How to avoid being deceived at a Japanese used car auction?

How to find a trusted agent

Toyota Hiace is considered as one of the toughest and most durable Japanese cars, so many overseas buyers buy second-hand Hiace for commercial use such as tourism.

There are ways to buy and sell Hiace among individuals and participate in car auctions in Japan, but there is a risk of being deceived when trying to buy Hiace individually from overseas.

This time, we will introduce how to avoid being deceived when participating in a used car auction in Japan from overseas.

Why are there possibilities to be deceived when participating in a used car auction by yourself?

The used car auction, as introduced in “Can an individual participate in the used car auction from overseas?“, there are two ways to participate; to buy a used car between individuals (C to C transaction) and to participate in an auction specializing in used cars in Japan.

Generally, only professionals can participate in auctions that specialize in used cars in Japan due to certain conditions.

On the other hand, interpersonal transactions have the advantage of being able to participate casually without the need for special qualifications or conditions, but there is a high risk of being deceived if an individual participates in an auction from overseas.

For example,

  • The used car did not arrive at the port despite paying the deposit
  • The conditions of the vehicle that was explained, especially the condition of the engine system, were different
  • There was fraudulent or tampering with mileage rewinding, etc.

In particular, Hiace is highly demanded overseas, so there are used car dealers who misrepresent a Hiace as being in good condition, alters the mileage even if it exceeds 100,000 km, and sells it as if it had been driven only 50,000 km. So, you have to be very careful.

Some points not to be deceived by used car auction in Japan

Especially in the case of personal transactions, there is a risk of being deceived because you have to trust the seller’s information.

To buy a used car, for example, hiace van superGL, at a car auction, you need to have the ability to check the vehicle condition without trusting whatever the seller explains, but it is difficult for a person who does not have special experience or qualifications as being mechanics or so.

Especially in the used car auction, the maintenance of the car is entrusted to the exhibitor, so it is not a personal transaction to buy a used car from an amateur seller, but by participating in the auction specialty where a repaired used car is exhibited by a professional, you can reduce the risk of paying a high price and purchasing a car with a bad conditioned engine.

In the worst case, you may receive a hiace van superGL that is completely different from the exterior photos. You need to be careful.

However, it is difficult for individuals from overseas to participate in the auction specializing in used cars in Japan, because the conditions stated above must be met.

Therefore, here we recommend you to participate in the used car auction in Japan and to get help from an agent on your behalf who makes a successful bid for a used car, for example, hiace van superGL.

However, there are a lot of auction agents all over the country, so you might not know which one to ask.

So, what is a reliable auction agent?

How to choose a reliable agent

There are many companies that help individuals to participate in Japanese used car auctions from overseas such as overseas EC sites.

Among the agents, trusted agents are those that meet the following four conditions.

  1. Deal with various languages
  2. Explain the car conditions in detail in the language of your country
  3. Participated in more than 150 car auctions throughout the nation
  4. Carefully check the contents of the assessment and preview the situation before making a bid for a used car

The car auction agent, who deals with various languages, can provide detailed information on car conditions without limiting the customer’s country or region, and can answer questions smoothly. carused supports many languages such as Spanish, English, German, Portuguese, Chinese, Filipino, and English, so you can communicate smoothly with us.

In addition, only about 10 out of 50,000 Japanese car auction agents are participating in auctions at 150 locations across Japan, and carused is one of them.

Since we participate in all car auctions in Japan, you will be sure to find the car you want from 140,000 used cars sold every week.

In particular, Hiace, especially hiace van superGL, is a very popular model overseas, so let a trusted dealer participate in the auction on your behalf by picking up and comparing a few trusted auction agents like the ones introduced above.

How do you participate in the auction?

Participating in an auction specializing in the used cars in Japan requires a special qualification as a “curio dealer” or, as mentioned above, it is necessary to clear various conditions, so it is difficult to participate individually from overseas.

So, this time, we’ve introduced that you can reduce the risk of being deceived by having a trusted auction agent to help you.

So, what is the procedure for getting help from a Japanese car auction agent?

For details, please refer to the following article.

hiace-supergl-van-cheap-car-auction

What are the four steps to participate in a used car auction in Japan?

In order to participate in the used car auction from Japan individually from overseas, special qualifications such as ” curio dealer” are required. It is also necessary to clear the conditions set by the auction organizer, so basically, non-professionals cannot participate in the used car auction.

Therefore, asking help from a used car auction agent on your behalf to bit on a car that you are willing to purchase is one of the methods that you can participate in the used car auction in Japan from overseas.

This time, we will introduce the procedure to have help from a car auction agent such as an overseas EC site.

How to participate in a used car sale auction

Requirements of a reliable car auction agent are as follows:

  • Can deal with many languages
  • Explains the condition of the car in detail
  • Participates in car auctions all over Japan
  • Check the status of the car before they make a successful bid

The car is transported by boat to the nearest port where you live.

It takes about two weeks to check the documents until you can actually drive the car. And depending on the route, it would take about 1 month to transport to destinations such as Africa and Europe, so it would most likely take about a month and a half to receive the car you purchased at the auction.

The documents that arrive at your address include the documents necessary for customs clearance, so please fill out the required fields and pick up your car.

If you cannot pick up your car at the port from your home, please use your local carrier.

A diagnosis of Hiace model according to each customer

In Japan, Hiace is used for transporting goods, but in other countries, it is often used not only for freight cars but also for vehicles accommodating many passengers, such as sightseeing buses and shared buses around sightseeing spots, so Hiace is especially a popular car model.

Hiace can be roughly divided into three types: vans, wagons, and commuters. Which Hiace is suitable for these purposes? Therefore, we will introduce the type and engine grade that you should consider buying as a diagnosis of Hiace model.

What type of Hiace should you buy?

Hiace has a simple and stylish design, making it suitable for transporting people and goods in its spacious interior. However, Hiace can be roughly divided into three types, van, wagons, and commuters. More specifically, there are as many as 20 types of Hiace, so you may not know which Hiace to choose from.

From here, we will introduce Hiace that you should buy based on the characteristics of Hiace’s representative van, wagon, and commuter.

There are two types of Hiace vans: “Super Long Van” and “Long Van”. More specifically, long vans can be divided into “Super GL”, “DX”, and “DX GL package”, and overall height, overall width, overall length, fuel consumption, and riding capacity vary according to the type. Hiace vans are a type of Hiace suitable for carrying goods, so those who want to use Hiace for freight should buy a Hiace van.

Riding capacity 10 people

Hiace Wagon has a simple and practical body component, and the full width is used for only a wide body.

The interior volume is sufficiently large, and the maximum riding capacity can be up to 10 people, so if you want to use it as a freight car to load more luggage, or if you want to use it as shuttle buses, sightseeing buses, and shared buses for small number of people, it is the one that you should buy among Hiace.

 

Hiace Commuter

It is a type of Hiace with a maximum riding capacity of 14 people among Hiace. Anyone who wants to use as sightseeing buses, pick-up buses, and shared buses around tourist spots, this is the suitable type since it can accommodate more than 10 people.

Which one should you choose, Gasoline or Diesel Engine?

The three Hiace; vans, wagons, and commuters we have introduced are available with a gasoline engine and a diesel engine. Many people might have an image that gasoline engines are smoother, but fuel efficiency is poor. Diesel engines have a peculiar way of driving but considered to have good fuel efficiency. However, in the recent Hiace, fuel efficiency has improved significantly due to technological advances, so there is not much difference in fuel efficiency.

Hiace is used for transporting many people and luggage in overseas, so high engine power is required. Therefore, it is better to choose a diesel engine with fuel efficiency and power.

The grade of each Hiace

While there are various types of Hiace, the current Hiace 200 series is available in only two grades, “GL” and “DX” which is very easy to understand. GL is the highest grade in Hiace and has a 4-number specification with a combination of a standard width body and a standard roof, which is a small cargo vehicle. In the wide-body, the middle roof is the most frequently used as an ordinary truck.

In addition, each door has double-row seats of five and features a wide variety of equipment that can be selected as standard equipment or manufacturer options. DX, on the other hand, has the largest number of vehicles among van-based grades and is characterized by a wide range of options. The combination of the standard width body and the standard roof is a 4-number specification for small trucks, and you can choose from standard width and wide width bodies. Also, the high roof has a number 1 specification that refers to general cargo trucks, and it is a grade that is suitable to carry a lot of goods because it has a flat bottom just-low.

How to get a variety of Hiace at a Japanese car auction?

The Japanese car auction lists 140,000 cars every week, so you can find the right Hiace for your purpose. Only professionals can participate in Japanese car auctions, so you can participate by requesting an agency that will participate in the auction on your behalf on an overseas EC site.

If you want to get Hiace at a Japanese car auction, let’s use Carused.jp.

Hiace is a popular model overseas

They are frequently used to carry luggage in factories, operate like buses, and so on. This time, we will explain how to buy the most popular “car model” in Hiace cheaply and easily.

How to buy hiace “hiace kdh van cheap”

There are several ways to buy a Hiace, and this time we will introduce three of them.

1.How to buy “hiace kdh van cheap” with “new car”

The benefits of purchasing a new car include:
“Choose a new model car”
“It’s less likely to break down, so there’s no repair cost.”
However, the disadvantage is that “the price is high”. For this reason, the number of people who purchase a new car in Japan is decreasing.

2.How to “rent a car”

Actually, it is called a “lease contract”, but the advantage of a lease contract is that it is cheaper than buying a new car and “you can choose a relatively new model car”.
However, as a disadvantage, it is necessary to consider how many years you are going to use the car because “insurance premiums and insurance money are high and using a car for more than two years can be more expensive than buying a new car.”
If you are planning to use “hiace kdh van cheap” for business or commercial purposes for more than 2 years, this method is not recommended.

3.How to buy a “used car”.

The benefit is that “you can buy it at a significantly lower price than buying a new car.” Depending on the negotiations, you may be able to get a car in excellent mechanical condition at a very low price.
However, as a disadvantage, “there is a possibility that the repair cost will be high. Because the condition differs depending on the used car, and it may break down immediately after the purchase or it cannot be used for a long time.”

Which methods would you like to choose?

For example, if you are buying a car for your hobby, I think buying a new car is very popular. Now to talk about buying a “hiace kdh van cheap”.

What is the intended use of Hiace you want to buy?

Isn’t there a lot of commercial purposes? such as construction, maintenance cars and shared buses? What is needed in such an application? The condition of the car is important.

For example, it is important that engines and shifts are maintained as an absolute requirement.
So what about dents, scratches, and paint? They will surely wear out as soon as a car is used for commercial purposes. In other words, shouldn’t it be cheaper even if it looks bad from the beginning?

The cheapest way to buy is to buy a used car

Since Hiace, which TOYOTA Japan is proud of, is durable by world standards, it is normal to drive 500,000 km instead of 100,000 km. However, in Japan, when the mileage exceeds 100,000 km or more than 10 years, it is common to change to a new one, and the used car market is full of these cars that can be still be used. People around the world import and reuse those used cars.
Therefore, it is recommended to purchase an old and shabby Hiace.

Japan has a vehicle inspection, and unless it succeeds in the inspection once every few years, it is not possible to drive on the road, and basically every car has a well-equipped engine and mechanical system, which is one of the reasons why the Japanese used cars from Japan are popular.

Not only by the global standard of Toyota engine performance but also the Hiace, which the Japanese took great care of, it is possible to ride even with the old and high traveling distance.
However, you need to pay attention to buying and selling used cars.

For example, C to C trading (What is C to C … Customer to Customer) has many troubles. The advantages are trading between individuals becomes possible and no margin is taken. but while it has become more convenient, there are many problems.

There are financial problems or product problems. Here are some examples.

The first case is
The car arrived but was later discovered to be fake. Upon trying to return the car, the seller told them that, “there is no possibility of returning a fake product”. They ended up losing hundreds of thousands of yen.

The second case is
The car arrived but failed immediately and the engine stopped. When they contacted the seller, the seller did not agree and said, “I have not send a defective car”.
Even if you pay for the freight and buy a car from abroad, receiving a car that looks like a scrapped car that has not been maintained is unacceptable.

As you can see from these examples, the reasons why there are many troubles in C to C trading are as follows.

  • It is very difficult to resolve the trouble between the parties.
  • Even if there is a company that operates the service, it is often difficult to solve problems since they do not involve themselves in case of any trouble.
  • Any underage person can purchase cars that require age-verification.
  • The other party may ask you for a prohibited matter and get into trouble.
  • The other party can do business without having to meet the other person directly, so the deceiving party can do whatever they want.

These are the reasons and some examples.

It’s off the subject, but,

One of the ways to buy a cheap vehicle is to buy something “that can be broken at any time”. There is also a method of purchasing a car almost the same as a scrapped car.

The engine and mechanical system are sensitive and it is possible to break down anytime. It’s possible to buy cheaper, but it is more likely that you might lose more than the money you paid.

Therefore, it is not recommended to buy Hiace, which is almost the same as a scrapped car.
So how do you buy a used car without being deceived?

As one method, We wrote “How to buy” hiace kdh van cheap” by using a Japanese used car auction by yourself”, so please read that too!

japanese-used-car-auction-hiace-kdh-van-cheap

Can “hiace kdh van cheap” be purchased individually from auction?

There are several ways to purchase “hiace kdh van cheap”, such as dealers, leasing, and direct imports.  The absolutely recommended is the used car auctions held every week in Japan.

The reasons are as follows:

  1. Since 140,000 vehicles are sold every week, the “hiace kdh van cheap” vehicle can always found that a users is looking for to purchase.
  2. There is a third party assessment and you can trust the condition.
  3. 99% exporters purchase from auctions.

In particular, it is extremely attractive that the number of distributions of ? is overwhelmingly large, and of course the availability of “hiace kdh van cheap” is also large. and also, there is a third-party assessment of ? and high security alone.

The third-party assessment is called an auction sheet  and has been assessed very finely, the evaluation of 1-5, of course, as shown in the following photo.

“hiace kdh van cheap ” is an old model,  and many vehicles have long mileage, but you can check if there is tampering with the mileage, etc. This auction sheet can be used to determine not only the condition of the vehicle,  but also what kind of problem there is, where there is no problem with traveling,  whether there is any oil leakage, etc.

Also, as shown in ?, the reason that the exporter purchases from the auction is from 1 and 2.  The exporter purchases from the auction, keeps the car as stock of the company, publishes it on the website, etc.

With a large profit, sell it to overseas companies,Also, since it is sold with profits to individual users in the country, the specific car that overseas individual users want, Of course it is better to buy it directly from a used car auction in Japan.

So, can individuals participate in the used car auction in Japan? Although it is an auction that is indispensable for importing used cars, it is actually quite difficult to join.

For example, as a necessary condition for joining are as follows:

  1. Need referrals from multiple companies handling cars
  2. Must have a store in Japan
  3. Depending on the auction, Japanese real estate may be used as collateral
  4. Have to pay a deposit
  5. You must take a secondhand dealer

There are many points that need to be cleared. Even if you can pay the security deposit in ?, as in ???, you have real estate in Japan,   have a store, and referrals from multiple companies are quite difficult, especially the license of a secondhand dealer in  ? is very problematic It becomes.

Acquisition is difficult even for Japanese companies,  and you must apply for permission to the prefecture public safety committee via the police station that supervises the sales office. In other words, even if you are in Japan and do not have a secondhand dealer, you cannot participate,   so it is almost impossible to buy directly from overseas at a Japanese auction.

So what should I do?

The answer is, isn’t it best to partner with an auction member in Japan and buy from a used car auction?

Then, How can I join in the Japanese car auction form Europe( the United Kingdom, Germany, Poland),and North America(the United States, Canada), Oceania (New Zealand and Australia), Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Congo)?

1. Register

Since it is a margin transaction, many Japanese auctions have a registration system. Enter information such as country, address, telephone number, name, etc. and register customers.

2. Pay a deposit.

A deposit is required in advance. This is a refundable deposit that can be used to buy at an auction, resulting in the transaction being over, or when you actually make a purchase, you can use it as a purchase price.

The amount of the security deposit varies depending on the company,  but as a partner company, if you purchase at the instruction of a customer from abroad and the customer does not pay,  the commission at the time of purchase in Japan and the relisting fee etc.  It costs $ 1000 to $ 3,000 because of the risks involved.

You can easily get started with just the above two steps.

For example,

For A in the Netherlands,

Purpose: There are a lot of used cars in Japan in good condition, and I want to buy a BMW as a car to ride with my family.

What A did:

  1.  Pay a deposit 1000USD to Payee A by PayPal on Jan/4.
  2. Company A reports that the money has been received on Jan/4 and starts searching for an auction.
  3. On Jan/7, a candidate vehicle was found in Jan/9 USS Tokyo, and the status of the vehicle was explained to Company A’s Sales B in English, and a bid request was made to Company A for up to 6,500 USD.
  4. Purchased at 4828USD, and purchased for 972USD as a rent fee to AMSTERDAM, totaling 5800USD. Received proforma invoice on Jan/9 and paid within 48 hours.
  5. Pay 1800 for 4800 USD minus 1000 USD deposit.
  6. The company arrived at AMSTERDAM on Fed/28 by a Jan/25 departure ship when a notice of payment and the notification of the loading of the vehicle arrived from A company on Jan/11.

In Japan, it is often used for commercial purposes such as transporting building materials, tools, and fashion, etc.  In Africa, Hiace kdh van cheap and other 6-seater Hiaces have been converted to 15-seaters, villages and towns,  It is used as a bus as a means of transport between towns and cities, sometimes as a freezer, refrigerated car, ambulance or fire truck. In addition, in Europe, customers who reimport Mercedes-Benz every Christmas to buy gifts for their wives every Christmas,  and they are used for many purposes such as taxi vehicles in Malaysia,  trucks as construction vehicles in Bangladesh, etc.

How can I use a used car sale auction without being deceived?

Hiace in Japan is a popular model that is attracting attention overseas, so isn’t there a lot of people who want to buy cheaply if possible?

However, when looking for used Hiace, everywhere is sold high and exceeding the budget. Hiace, which is sold as a used car, is sold at a high price due to the commission when participating in the auction.

So, this time, we would like to introduce how a person who wants to purchase Hiace “hiace kdh van cheap” from a used car sale auction individually without being deceived.

“What are the reasons why some people are deceived at a car auction?”
Hiace, which is sold by Japanese automaker Toyota, has recently become more popular in Southeast Asia such as the Philippines, than in Japan. They have been used mainly in tourism and shared buses. In particular, the “kdh” model is famous for being easy to repair engine systems because it uses diesel which is a cheap fuel worldwide. It is durable, cheap, and has a lot of stock overseas.
One way to buy “hiace kdh van cheap” cheaply is to participate in a used car auction in Japan.

However, if you participate in the auction by yourself, the actual car and the car presented in the auction may be in different states, and you may be deceived.

For example…

  • I paid but did not receive the car.
  • The meter was manipulated
  • There was a falsehood of repair history, etc.

The reason for being deceived in this way is that many cars with bad conditions are exhibited at car auctions, such as cars that have been repaired or cars with the meter whose actual distance traveled is unknown.

The reason why cars with such poor quality are exhibited is that cars with bad conditions can be bidding cheaply, so used car dealers bought repaired cars and cars with unknown meters cheaply. There are many companies that make a profit by selling a new product by falsely commenting such as, ” it has a little scratch” or “it drives well”.

In particular, odometer tampering has become a problem in Japan and used cars that are significantly below the approximate annual travel distance of 10,000 km to 15,000km/year. For example, a car with a total mileage of only 15,000km even though the model is 5 years old should be avoided because the meter may have been manipulated.

What are the points to avoid being deceived at a car auction?

In order to not be deceived at car auctions, you need “the ability to see cars”, but even those who have been drivers for many years can not easily spot unless they are professional mechanics, car dealers or intermediaries. That Is the reality.

For those who think, “I want to buy “hiace kdh van” cheaply at a car auction cheaply, but is there any way to avoid being deceived?”, please ask support from a trusted auction agent.

Characteristic s of a reliable car auction agent

There are many auction agencies that support purchasing Japanese cars such as Hiace from overseas at car auctions, but it is not clear which company to actually request.

Because we are a member of all car auctions throughout Japan, we have the third largest purchase of car auction services in Japan (i-Auc), which handles the largest number of cars in Japan.

In addition, when participation in the auction, cancellation after ordering is basically not possible. There are many companies that only ask you to pay security deposits first as a fee. However, some companies require you to pay in full when participating in an auction, so you may want to use that as a criterion to decide which company to choose.

MPH and KPH: Which Country uses which metric

Depending on which country you are in, speed is measured in either kilometers or miles per hour. The designations for both may change, The post MPH and KPH: Which Country uses which metric appeared first on Expert Maintenance and Buying tips - Carused.jp Blog -...

Depending on which country you are in, speed is measured in either kilometers or miles per hour. The designations for both may change, but most countries have adopted either kph, kp/h, or kmph for kilometers per hour, and mi/h, mph and m/h for miles per hour. Currently, only about 9% of the world uses miles per hour as a unit of measure, with the best-known among them being the USA and its dependencies. Despite the UK having officially converted to the metric system, they still use mph as well.

Japan is one of the countries that uses kph as a unit of measure, as well as Australia, China, India, the UAE, and rest of 81% of the world. These are the units used in displaying speed limits and other highway warnings in these countries, which is something you may need to keep in mind if you plan on driving during your visit in these countries.

Speed Limits

Of the countries that use km/h, Poland has the highest speed limit, at 140kph on the motorways.  In most of Europe however, the average speed limit is 80kph.

Speed limits in Japan are dependent on the roads you are on. On the expressway, for instance, the speed limit varies between 80 and 100kph, while urban areas and side streets are limited to 40 and 30kph respectively. Cars are driven on the left side of the road, and the road signs on major roads are conveniently in both Japanese and English. Driving in Japan is mainly done outside of the main metropolitan areas (the big cities of Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya).

Countries that use MPH

The 9% of the world that still uses mph as a unit of measure includes the USA, Myanmar, Liberia, and the UK as stated earlier. Most of the countries and islands in the Caribbean also use miles per hour, including Antigua, Bahamas, Barbuda, and St Kitts and Nevis. Most of these are popular tourist destinations with good driving weather, and it is important for anyone traveling there to have this information. It is a good place to start your preparations especially if you plan on driving during your visit.

Below is a table detailing countries that still use mph.

Converting your speedometer KPH to MPH

Cars made in Europe and Japan are equipped with a speedometer using the KPH metric units. In the UK however, car speed is measured in mph. You are therefore it is necessary to either change the way the instruments read or constantly have to do mental sums in your head to avoid going over the speed limit. There are two ways to convert your speedometer to MPH and they are:

Using an inline converter: This is where you install an aftermarket converter to accurately change your speed readout to MPH in real-time. Your choice of converters is limited to either cord type or chip. Chip converters are placed on the harness of your current speedometer and adjust the signal without having to change the equipment. Cord type converters, on the other hand, replaces the entire speedometer harness. It is important to note that not all inverters may be suitable for your vehicle.

Changing the dials: This is done by changing the entire dial readout to reflect mph. This is, however, a delicate procedure that should be done by an experienced professional. This is because it involves the cluster from the dashboard.  This type of technical work varies depending on the car, and the level of difficulty varies as well. It is important to note that the dials are set up in different positions. Some charts have been made using speedometer types to help you pick out the right unit for our car.

It is important to make sure your view of the speedometer is not obscured after the change. It is not only illegal but also highly dangerous.

Sometimes it is not possible to have the vehicle’s speedometer changed. This is usually when you are in a foreign country on vacation or business. It is however still your duty to follow the local road regulations, and that means knowing and observing the speed limits.

This means doing mental conversions in your head. One kilometer is equal to 0.62 miles which means converting your speed can be done by simply multiplying the unit displayed by 0.62 to get the speed limit in miles per hour. This is something you will have to do in continental Europe including countries like Spain, France, and Germany.

Here is a simple yet useful conversion table for common speed limits around the world.

Speed in Kilometers per Hour Speed in Miles per Hour
20 12
30 19
50 31
60 37
70 44
80 50

What is a CVT Transmission and How Long Does it Last?

You’ve probably heard about CVT transmission before, especially if you’ve been interested in purchasing a vehicle. For many years, we’ve known that there The post What is a CVT Transmission and How Long Does it Last? appeared first on Expert Maintenance and Buying tips - Carused.jp Blog -...

You’ve probably heard about CVT transmission before, especially if you’ve been interested in purchasing a vehicle. For many years, we’ve known that there are only two kinds of transmissions: manual and automatic. Now, we’ve been seeing cars with a CVT transmission. You may ask, “What is it exactly and would I ever need it?” In this post, we are going to share everything you need to know about this type of transmission.

What is a CVT Transmission?

CVT stands for ‘Continuously Variable Transmission’. Technically speaking, it is a type of automatic transmission. However, CVT transmission can change seamlessly because of its infinite gear ratios. In contrast, standard automatic transmissions only have a finite number of gear ratios.

What is the Difference Between Automatic Transmissions and CVTs?

Automatic transmissions have an intricate series of brakes, gears, principal devices, and clutches. Also known as speeds, gears on standard automatic transmissions usually come in fixed numbers. For instance, you may have encountered a vehicle with a 6-speed automatic transmission. This info means that the car has six gears in its transmission. Moreover, every gear is designed to reach a particular vehicle speed. When you try to accelerate, your transmission has to shift up through the gears, beginning with the first, second, and so forth.

Now, with a CVT transmission, you can expect the ideal engine speed for every driving condition. What’s more, even if your car is accelerating rapidly, the engine speed will remain constant. It is worth noting that a CVT transmission does not contain individual gears. On the other hand, it has a single gear that flawlessly changes, depending on the driving condition.

When you compare a CVT transmission with an automatic, you won’t feel the gear shifting from one position to another. What you’ll notice is the change in the RPMs. Often, the RPM is lower for cruising and higher for acceleration. Indeed, CVTs are evidence of how manufacturers work hard on enhancing modern vehicles.

What is the Lifespan of CVT Transmissions?

Of course, when you’re buying a vehicle, you’d want to get the most out of your money. So, you might ask, “How long does a CVT transmission last?” Well, it depends on the make of the car. It is worth noting that manufacturers like Honda, Toyota, Nissan, and Subaru have different versions of CVT transmissions in their collections. In most cases, first-generation models have shifters with a shorter lifespan. Nissan also encountered the same issue with their JATCO lineups. It goes without saying that these are the brands you should avoid when purchasing a vehicle with a CVT transmission.

Should You Buy a CVT Car?

It is worth noting that you can expect longer fuel miles with continuously variable transmissions. What’s more, they produce more efficient and simpler power. Since you won’t feel the shift from different gears, the ride will be more comfortable. That said, it would take some time for you to get used to driving a CVT vehicle. Often, drivers complain about the continuous and low noise, which many refer to as ‘engine drone’. This noise can be quite bothersome for some people.

If you want to know if a CVT car is perfect for you, then your best bet is to go through a test drive. Meanwhile, if you want to get more information about CVTs, please do not hesitate to contact Carused.jp. We have a wide collection of used Japan cars with CVT transmissions. We will also help you decide which car is suitable for your needs. Alternatively, you can ask your questions in the comments below.
