For further information on purchasing vehicles directly from auction please contact us.
How auctions operate in Japan:
Vehicles to be auctioned are transported to auction sites by the morning of the day before the auction, vehicles are usually delivered around the clock, at the largest Auction there can be up to 20,000 vehicles auctioned in one day.
Auction vehicle inspectors impartially grade vehicles in line with auction grade evaluation standards.
Vehicles are photographed and uploaded to the database along with the results of the inspection, which is generally refered to as the “Auction Sheet”.
Vehicles are then parked in the auction yard or parking buildings which are numbered (most of the time) in numerical order, these vehicles are open to inspection by auction members. You as the customer can also preview the vehicles using our auction website on the Internet from any where in the world as long as you have an internet connection.
Members must display their ID cards when they enter or leave auction sites, if a customer would like to come to an auction we can arrange a visitor pass for the day.
While at the auction you can search for the vehicles you have in mind on our online auction website or you can search the information on the terminals installed in the auction sites.
SAL avoids potential problems that might occur after successfully bidding for a vehicle, by physically inspecting the vehicles at auction.
Cars are arranged in different corners (sections) of auction sites, auctions are simultaneously held for between two and twelve vehicles. It takes about 20 seconds to complete a contract for one vehicle.
This is the weekly Auction Schedule that we attend auctions in Japan.
