How do you ship the truck that I buy?
We have a warehouse on our premise where we are able to cut,
package, and prepare the vehicles that we are shipping. This means
that after we source the item, we can do whatever is appropriate to
prepare it for shipment. Shipping generally means using a 20 normal
height or 40 ft. High-Cube container. Normally a 40-foot container
can carry 5 half-cut cabins or a mixture of engines and cabins. It
is also possible to ship complete 2-ton or 4-ton trucks by driving
them directly into the container and securing them.
We can also palletize shipments of new parts or special order
items for the most economical shipment in the event that your order
does not fill a container.
great for trucks, but what about the car that I want to buy?
SMS Diesel Spares Japan ships cars directly from the point of
purchase to our secure warehouse. This ensures that the vehicle is
protected while the export paperwork is being processed. From this
point the vehicle is loaded onto a Roll-on Roll-off ship for
delivery to the port nearest you. If a RO-RO service is not
available in your area, we will containerize the vehicle and secure
it before shipping.
about rusting on the vehicles you see?
Every winter the Kansai region, of which Osaka is a part,
receives limited snowfall. Because of this salt and other corrosive
chemical use is limited. Consequently, there is little rusting due
to salt. Of course as any vehicle gets older, the possibility of
corrosion increases, but generally we donít see rust as a big
problem in choosing the vehicles that we purchase for export.
currency do you use?
All quoted prices and transactions are in U.S. Dollars.
