AN INSIGHT ON JAPANESE AUCTION SHEET

Whenever you are buying any vehicle from Japanese auctions you may have noticed an auction sheet that is provided to you. Auction sheet is basically the most reliable and important document that states detailed information of the unit (car). It covers all the information from unit name and model of the unit to scratches and major dents on it. Auction sheet is produced by professional inspectors, who works as an independent body, employed by the auction house to provide an unbiased auction report.

 

However, the auction sheets are in the Japanese language which is not readable to foreign buyers. But that’s not an issue because JDM brings you this simple guide to help you understand the exact meaning of all the terms and symbols mentioned on the sheet. There may not be any uniformity in the auction sheets as some of the symbols vary from auction to auction. The main aspect of the auction sheet is that it needs to be accurate and truthful with any faults being clearly specified, else the auction house will be liable for distorting a car and will have to settle a claim if they have made a mistake.

Used Japanese cars have gained immense admiration from dealers and buyers around the world a long time and have resulted in an increase in auction houses all over Japan. To meet our customer requirements, JDM purchases cars on behalf of its customers from top auction houses in Japan. All the cars bought by JDM go through the process of evaluation which is done by our experienced staff. JDM makes it possible for its customers to get the best car possible in the best lowest price and best quality by providing exceptional auction services.
