JAPAN CAR DIRECT'S GOAL

Our goal is simple. We strive for every customer’s total satisfaction. We work to achieve this with honest, professional service, and clear communication. We are auction members with bidding privileges at all the dealer’s auctions in Japan. JCD’s customers are supplied with auction memberships enabling them to search at their leisure, and see the auction reports, photos and winning bids of  thousands of vehicles weekly at the over 120 dealer auctions.

We provide professional inspections of all vehicles to assure that they meet customers’ required spec and condition before purchase. We source vehicles from auctions, dealer’s lots and private sellers. After being purchased the vehicles are transported to the nearest port for export to the required destination.We are here to serve all of our customers in a straight forward and ethical manner. We work for a set service fee and customers can win at auction for less than their maximum bid. A scan of the winning bid is sent to every customer. The lower our customers win for the happier we all are!
