Car like the classic Mercedes Benz S-Class (W116 body type)
or a more modern 500SEL or 560SEL
or a very modern and super gorgeous SL500 and SL320
or the stunning collaboration with Porsche, the 500E,
you can really see and feel why it’s got to be Benz; why it is that discerning car buyers go for Mercedes Benz, especially when they are choosing a sedan: It’s the balance and proportion of design in the body, so clear to see in the vehicles above. It’s the well thought out, well laid out and well made interiors on these cars. It’s that timelessness of that shared special element that you find in a 280S, an S-class, a 500SEL; cars that are years apart but all pure Benz
And it’s the quality: The Mercedes Benz quality speaks right to you as you drive.
More and more as a Japanese used car exporter here at Japan Car Direct we are getting customers from Europe (especially Poland), from Asia (especially Taiwan), and from North America (especially Canada), and from other countries who want to import a used Mercedes Benz from Japan.
Ports such as Bremerhaven, Southampton, Bristol, Liverpool, Zeebrugge, the Piraeus, Halifax, and Dublin are more and more our landing places for a good used SL500 or SL320, for a 560SEL or an S-Class, for a 500E, or even a more classic Benz bought online from us in Japan.
The original Japanese owners of these cars knew what they wanted in a car and why; and they knew where to find the quality and timeless classy style they required: Benz. Mercedes Benz.
The used Mercedes Benz that are available for import from Japan, from the Japanese used car dealers, the Japanese used car auctions, and at private sales, have usually been loved and cared for….babied.
They are just what our customer is looking for when he says: “I want to buy a good used second hand Mercedes Benz.” Low mileage (low kilometers), good condition, quality used cars; your second hand Benz from Japan is all that.
And whether it’s a classic like the S-Class, or whether it’s a much newer car like an SL500, or even Benz’s off road conqueror, the G-Class
a nice used Mercedes Benz bought from Japan has all the good features and good condition that you want in a top end luxury car.
And these cars have also got that special timelessness and quality, that special “it” that comes with a good Mercedes Benz. It’s like the old song says:
“She’s got it. Yeah, Baby, she’s got it!”
Yeah, a Mercedes Benz sedan has got it.
Can not recommend these guys enough. I dealt with Matt, who was extremely helpful and patient with all of my stupid questions. The way they have the whole process is so convenient, especially with the live video translations of the auction sheets. I will absolutely be returning to them in the future.
Trustworthy group here! They made it easy from point a to b. So glad this was the first group I tried as I have heard horror stories about the import process. Highly recommended.
Yoshi and team were patient in helping me find the right car (green 2016 Prius 4WD) and get me through the process. Flawless service, prompt response to communications, on delivery the car was better than expected, very close to new looking. Their recommended partners for shipping and entry into NZ were on the ball too. Highly recommended! Pro tip: don't mess around; decide exactly what you want, then bid to win.
I had been toying with the Idea of importing a Land Cruiser from Japan for a while and to be honest was quite hesitant about doing so, as the process for a first timer seemed quite daunting. Mathew at JCD made the whole process SUPER EASY! Been a pleasure dealing with him and was kept informed every step of the way and super fast communication kept the whole process stress free! Thanks again Mathew and I'm looking forward to the next Cruiser! Cheers!!
I was daunted by the prospect of purchasing a vehicle overseas. Mathew was right there to offer direction and assurance along the way. He was quick to respond and most importantly, his word was good. Everything came to pass as he advised. The only point that went differently from his anticipation was the duty tax, which inherently has room for interpretation and may depend on the port of delivery. Would I go to Mathew and JCD again? Absolutely! With his help I obtained a suzuki carry with 8k miles, 4wd hi/lo w/ diff lock, in excellent condition, for a total of 5k from auction to driveway--tremendous value in my estimation. Thanks Mathew, the little truck is a fine addition to the farm. My kids, and my wife, love to drive it:)
Mathew at Japan Car Direct has been a HUGE help and continually went above and beyond with assisting me. It was my first time bidding on vehicles at auction and having them shipped to the US. He even helped me arrange a mechanic in Japan to do some work on the Hiace I purchased so that it would arrive in the US in tip top shape and be ready to hit the road. I look forward to doing more business with Mathew in the future and you should too!
I was totally clueless and was having a really hard time finding someone that I felt I could trust to help me with these auctions. A couple folks recommended Mathew over at JCD and I very reluctantly reached out. Yeah, I have trust issues. Dude put me at ease and really walked me through the whole process. After a couple months I didn’t end up buying a vehicle, but that’s on me. When I changed my direction, Mathew helped me wrap things up and wished me well. I have zero reservations about reaching out to these guys or recommending anyone else to do so. Very helpful, knowledgeable, prompt and everything I needed. You won’t be disappointed.
Ordered an Acty Van with these guys. five star service all the way. everything went perfect!!!. I was so afraid to import a car myself. JCD made it seamless. I would import wit them and only them again and again. Thanks guys!!
Discovered KEI vehicles about a year ago and spent many hours searching the internet in hopes of finding an affordable van state side, to no avail. That is until I sent a message to Mathew at JCD. He was quick to respond, answered way too many of my silly questions, and worked diligently to find the right van for me. He is thorough, clear, and timely. Made the process simple and enjoyable. I am more than excited to work with him again. I highly recommend the service these gentlemen provide.
Matt made importing a few mini trucks for our farm a breeze. Super easy to deal with and transparent with all the details involved in bidding and winning auctions, the import process, and everything in between.
My truck had been stolen and Matt was helping me bid on mini-trucks to replace it. Of course once we started bidding the truck was recovered, but Matt was upfront and very helpful both getting into and out of our auction based relationship. I would not hesitate to work with JCD again!
I worked with Mat and i believe i couldn't have done any better. This was my first time dealing with importing, Mat was so patient and helpful through this purchase. I also feel he got me the best deals, i have since the first purchase made two more and will continue to do business with Mat.
I purchased three vehicles from auction with Matt, he made it extremely easy and was available whenever I needed him throughout the entire importing process. This is not the last time I will be dealing with them. I plan to order more vehicles in the near future! If your looking for a trustworthy company to order vehicles through I highly recommend JCD!
Mathew was super helpful if helping me get more info and bid on cars I was interested in.
Mathew and the gang were great with helping me with the acquisition of my 1994 Subaru Sambar dump kei truck. I was so excited about getting a truck I was ready to buy just about anything. Matt put the breaks on that and used his experience and knowledge to weed out the potential problems. I use my truck almost daily around our farm moving things and as a work surface. It is great. Mathew and Japan Car Direct helped my sister get a kei truck as well and I have and will continue to recommend them to anyone who has expressed interest in my great little vehicle.
