Shipping

FOR AUCTION PURCHASES, WE CAN SHIP YOUR CAR DIRECTLY TO THE PORT,

 

OR FIRST TO THE SHOP, FOLLOWED BY THE PORT.

1) auction → Shop in Japan → Port

  • In the winter months, we recommend sending it to the shop in Japan before it ships out – the coolant can be changed at your request, to ensure it does not freeze during transport.
  • Sometimes clients will still prefer to have a vehicle shipped to the shop before coming to Canada because we can get another inspection done, coolant changed, oil and filter changed all for around +$360, and a bunch of additional photos. We will also include images of any blemishes that can be found on the vehicle. You can also ask any further questions that you may have, or for specific things to be checked, or specific work to be done.
  • This is worked into the total cleared customs price, there’s no charge above the ‘total cleared customs price’ for this!

2) AUCtion → Port

  • In the summer months, can save around $300 from the total cleared customs price
  • Approximately 10 extra photos can be taken of the car from the port staff
  • This can sometimes expedite the ETA by about a week if we can get the vehicle on an earlier shipping vessel
  • Oil and coolant can not be changed nor any further inspection or modifications

Once you’ve ordered the car in Japan it takes an average of 8 weeks for the car to arrive at a west coast port. Shipping from Japan is included in the total cleared customs price. Upon arrival it goes through customs, which takes about 5 business days, and is also included in the cleared customs price. When cleared, it is ready for pickup at the port or for further cross-country shipping.

 

Please note: We can ship to east coast ports instead if preferred – make sure to indicate if that is your preference.

 

Vehicles are strapped down securely, without risk of other vehicles colliding into them. If in the off chance there is shipping damage, vehicles have full ICC-A ocean shipping insurance. We do everything in our power to streamline the shipping process and take any risks and variables out of the equation so that you can have peace of mind.
