Actual auction price


Recommended Posts

Hi, my agent has bid for a car successfully for me from USS Nagoya, and has sent me an invoice to pay. As USS auctions are not publishing the results, how do can I find out the actual bid price? Does the USS auction give some paper to the agent as a proof of the bid price? What kind paperwork I can ask the agent to privide to me as a proof of purchase?

Whats that Auction number and car details. Ill see if the information is still avail.

Any good agent would send you a screenshot of the details as courtesy.

If in at auction i sometimes video record it for the customer.

If you don't trust your broker to tell you the correct price, why would you trust them to check out a car for you. Plenty of better ways to rip you off from another country if that is their intention

My suspecision is triggered by the fact that the agent passed me an invoice to pay, and not the auction record. On checking the USS auction record, the record for my car has been removed. Removing of an auction record is a paid service by USS. Why someone would pay to remove an auction reocrd, if it is not for the purpuse of hiding something? It is virtually impossible to tell whether an importing agent is trustworthy or not before doing a business with them.

I can't even trust half the agents I've met over here in Japan. Who know's how you'd go about it from overseas.

The safest way would be to just buy it from someone with a good reputation - I've heard Rohab is good but can't vouch for it. Otherwise you can go over to Trust Kikaku but expect a price premium. Even once you get past finding a trustworthy agent, part of the problem is the cars aren't always trustworthy; you'll find 4s that should be R-rated and vice versa. You'll never know unless you can get a reliable third-party to check it over for you.

Good luck to anyone seeking to import via an agent.
