The Japanese auctions are a great way to buy used cars directly from Japan. The auctions are held every week from Monday to Saturday, and depending on the vehicle you're looking for, you'll get a lot of different options every week in one place to look at and decide to bid on.

The auctions are accessible only to dealers and exporters, which means you'll be accessing wholesale prices through our service with a fixed service charge, incorporating all charges within Japan, meaning no bloated profit margins you have to deal with.\

The average price section on each vehicle's page may not be entirely accurate, as it averages sold-out prices for all vehicles of the same model in that year. Vehicle prices vary based on factors such as condition, mileage, grade, and more.

6. Additional Privileges

Customers usually send their bids to the ZervTek agents after translations and inspections. After that, we set and forward the maximum bids to a different agent who actively bids. If you feel like you would like to put in the maximum bids onto the site yourself, please let the agent know and they will provide you with additional access.

Please make sure to put the amounts correctly and know about the vehicle as we will bid up to the maximum price and purchase.

Customers can use the group feature to bundle up bids and the amount of vehicles to get from each bundle.

A customer wants to buy 1 vehicle from 3 particular vehicles, and 2 from another 4 vehicles. You can list the first 3 vehicles under A and set the number to 1. While you list the other 4 under B and set the number 2.
