About EFJ - How To Buy
Before ordering, please check the customs duties and restrictions (concerning the year of manufacture, the possibility of importing the RHD cars) with local government bodies
* since these rules may change over time. Information on the main directions of possible importing cars from Japan is given below by continents.
North America (USA, Canada)
Motor vehicles that are at least 25 years old can be lawfully imported into the United States. Shipping to New York, Florida, Los Angeles, and Texas is possible. Importing the RHD cars is allowed.
Canada: Halifax, Toronto, Vancouver
Australia, New Zealand
Along with the year of manufacture, both countries have strong views on the technical condition of vehicles. Inspection is mandatory. The Jevic inspection checks the cars body health and verifies the genuineness of mileage. We can arrange such an inspection. Before buying a car, we will thoroughly inspect it.
South Africa, Kenya
These countries also require inspections and have some restrictions. Kenya prohibits importing vehicles more than 8 years old. Our representative in Africa can arrange all customs and registration procedures.
In short, if your country has an international seaport and its legislation and customs duties allow importing cars, you can contact us. Before ordering, mandatorily check the customs duties and restrictions (concerning the year of manufacture, the possibility of importing the RHD cars) with local government bodies.
How to order from auctions?
If the car you want to buy is at auction, please send the deposit by bank transfer no later than one day before the auction. The reason we want a deposit is that if the car is purchased, the payment for the car is immediately deducted from our account, and it is impossible to cancel the purchase. We request a deposit to insure against unwanted and unexpected refusals. If the car you wish to buy is at auction, please provide the deposit by bank transfer no later than one day before the date of the auction. The reason we request a deposit is that if the car is bought, the auction immediately debits our account for the cost of the car, and the purchase is irreversible. We request the deposit to be insured against unwanted and unexpected refusals.
If the car is not bought at auction (sold at a higher price than your bid), and you do not wish to bid on another car, the deposit will be refunded in full, excluding the bank commission.
Minimum deposit for cars up to $ 10,000 is JPY 100,000 ($ 1,000)
$ 10,000-20,000 - $ 2,000
$ 20,000-30,000 - $ 3,000
If the car has been purchased at auction, we send you an official invoice. You will be requested to pay the rest of the money within 3 days by bank transfer, considering the deposit prepaid. After the full amount is paid, we arrange the delivery of the car to the seaport and execute appropriate documents. During this period, we provide you with detailed photos from the port.
At your desire, we can transfer the car to the service of our company and arrange its maintenance. You will be the car owner according to all international laws since all the documents are issued in your name. Once these documents are ready, the originals will be mailed to you.
We will do our best for your comfort and serenity!
