The process when you choose to corporate with JPD Japan as your agent when you want to import your next car from Japan.
1. If you wish to enter in to an agreement with JPD Japan about sourcing and exporting your next car from Japan, we take as a starting point an initial fee of minimum 50,000 JPY. (depending on what car you are searching)
When we have entered the agreement, we start sourcing a car that meet your requirements, the search will mainly be on the auctions in Japan, but also we are looking around at private sellers and dealers in Japan
The start fee covers the time we use on searching often we spend more time than what is paid for upfront, you as customer wont be charged extra, if we use more time than calculated from the beginning.
If you want to cancel the agreement, this should happen within 14 days after we have recieved the deposit, if you cancel you will get the full deposit refunded – otherwise we reserve the right to retain the amount, because our service is started, and then it is your choice to continue or stop the agreement – if you want to resume the agreement you just contact us and then we continue the work for not extra costs.
Another important thing, is to keep in mind, the time diffrence between europe and Japan, fx. Denmark and Japan is +7-8 hours ahead, that means that decisions about cars have to be reported to us about 3pm danish time or 11pm japanese time, to make sure that we got the chance to get the the cars checked before the auction starts.
It is in some cases possible to get some photos of the car in the morning, before the auction starts – please ask us about this, cause it really depends on where the car is located and how much we are up to that particular day.
2. When the right car is bougth – we are offering a detailed serie of pictures of the car (about 100 detailed photos) and a little “walk around” video with the car idleing so you can hear how the engine sounds, this will be made when the car arrives at the port. (expect this to take abou 1~2 weeks after the car is bougth)
As soon as the car is bougth we will charge the final payment and what it cost to transport the car and the FOB costs.
When the payment are cleared we are ready to book the car for the next ship (There are diffrent lines that call Europe, we will get your car booked to the next vessel, to get it off as fast as possible)
3. The shipping time from Japan to Europe is about 6~8 weeks.
For international customers:
Remember that there will be some costs on your side, port fees and customs fees (TAX, VAT and duty) – please make sure to contact a customs agent, they are able to help you with all of it.
For danish customers:
All cars for Denmark will come in container – that is cause we have had some bad situations with the shipping companies, so we have decided that cars to Denmark are now going by container, the shipping costs for this is included in the TOTAL prices we calculate.
If you want the car to go by RORO, this is 100% on your own risk, and you need to arrange this with us as seperate thing, as standard now is container.
If you choose RORO, the car will arrive in Bremerhaven, Germany, then the VAT and duty should be paid before we can get the car released and it can come over the danish boarder – For our danish customers, our danish company is able to sort that our for you so you just have have to make payment to our danish account.
The car will be delivered at our place in Denmark, where you can collect it right after.
We are able to supply datacertificate for danish customers, that proves that the car meets the requirements for inspeciton and registration in Denmark, please see more HERE.
NOTE! JPD Japan can not be held responsable for any damages on the car doing the transport from Japan.
