Auctions

Getting a Japanese vehicle from auction is exciting (and addictive)!

Whether it’s for an economical or practical daily driver, a unique project,
or one of the many sought-after classics that Japan is known for,
you can usually find something to suit your taste at the auctions.

We have two portals to the main Japanese car auctions, each with their own strengths for accessing current auction listings, some historical sales data and dealer stock:

auction.b-pro.ca user: japanese password: imports
(no caps, no spaces)

bids.b-pro.ca same credentials

yahoo.b-pro.ca private and dealer auctions, less popular compared to the above 2.

How do the JDM car auctions work?

These are like a ‘sealed bid’ auction – the time counts down to the beginning of the auction, when everyone bids their maximum amount. The highest (typically) wins for a few hundred more than the second-placed bid – unless there is a hidden reserve.

The standardized process for auctioning a Japanese vehicle provides a thorough description of the car’s condition on an auction sheet. This process reduces some of the risk of buying a car sight-unseen. If you have given your deposit, we can translate the auction sheet for free for units that you like.

JDM cars at auction can be listed up to 4 days in advance, but are often posted with only 24 hours notice.

Best of all, browsing is FREE!

How can I bid on a JDM car at auction?

Leave it to us!

With two decades of experience importing cars from Japan, our process makes it simple for you from inquiry to turning the key. Our trusted contacts in Japan give us accurate information on the vehicles, and have a track record of delivering our clients cars in the same condition as they were in Japan. This allows us to get exactly what you want and need out of your JDM vehicle purchase.

Our service is unmatched – you can call or text, email or message us on Facebook or Instagram, and we’ll respond quickly. We also guarantee our price – if you see a car in Japan that another importer has listed, we have our import fee price-beat guarantee to match our top-notch service.

The process, at a glance:

  1. Send in your deposit
  2. Decide on a type of Japanese car you like, and we’ll send you options daily
  3. Select a unit at auction and tell us how much to bid
  4. If we win, it takes about 6 weeks for it to arrive in Vancouver

What car should I get?

Each year, more versions of Japanese cars are available to import under the Canadian federal government’s 15-year importation rule, and the USA, Quebec and PEI’s 25-year rule. We have created a number of articles exploring which vehicles might be a good pick to import for each year.

Understanding JDM auction sheets

If you are wondering what “4/B”, “H15” or “A1” means – don’t worry, you’re not alone!

Decoding and translating what the Japanese inspectors have written on the JDM auction sheets is part of what we do as our service to our clients. We know you like to browse the auctions on your own anyway, and we have created an auction sheet primer.
