Every week in the Kansai area of Japan, several automotive auctions are held. These auctions feature the best that the Japanese used car and truck market has to offer. SMS Diesel Spares Japan is a member of several of these vehicle auctions. On any given week we have the opportunity to choose from over 8,000 to 10,000 cars and 500 to 700 trucks.

Why are there so many great used vehicles in Japan?

After a new car is purchased, the owner has a three-year period before the first inspection. After that initial inspection, cars must be re-inspected every two years and after the 11th year the inspection becomes yearly. Each inspection costs the owner increasing amounts of money starting from around $700 for the first inspection and increasing to around $1,500 to $2,000 by the time the car is seven years old. Because of this strict inspection policy, many car owners would rather buy a new car instead of going though the expense and hassle of re-certifying their old one.

This means that every week, a flood of newly available used vehicles comes on to the market as owners trade in their old vehicles for the latest model

What is a burden on Japanese car owners becomes an opportunity for anyone interested in picking up a good deal

How can the vehicles have such low mileage?

Because of the inspection system, most of the cars up for sale each week are three, five or seven years old. Many of these vehicles were used primarily on the weekends and sparingly during the week for shopping at the local grocery store. It is a rare case for a car to accumulate 1,000 kilometers per month.

But what about Price?

Of course price is important to everyone. It always is one of the first questions asked by anyone looking to buy something. Purchasing a vehicle at an auction is the ultimate in trading off value vs. price. Later model, low mileage vehicles are more expensive than older, higher mileage vehicles. Our job is to help you reach a balance between the price vs. quality factor that minimizes any compromises that you might have to make.
