Process of Buying a Car

At Japan Wheels, we strive to make the process of buying a car both used or new from us as simple and straightforward as possible. The first step is to browse our online inventory of Japanese vehicles, which includes a wide range of high-quality used cars from popular manufacturers like Toyota, Honda, Nissan, and Mitsubishi. Once you’ve found a car you’re interested in, you can get in touch with our team to learn more about the vehicle’s condition, history, and specifications. We also take on-demand vehicle requests, where you can give us the requirements of the automobile you are looking for and we can find your car at auto auctions. We have the memberships of all the major auto auctions and are capable of shipping any kind of on-demand vehicle.

If you decide to move forward with a purchase, we’ll work with you to arrange for payment and shipping. We offer a variety of payment options, including bank transfers and credit card payments, and we can help you arrange for shipping to your desired destination. We have years of experience shipping cars all over the world, and we’ll work with you to ensure that your car is delivered safely and efficiently. 

In addition to our car sales, we also offer a variety of other services, including parts sales and vehicle customization. Whether you’re looking for a specific part for your vehicle or you’re interested in upgrading your car’s performance or appearance, our team is here to help. We’re committed to providing our customers with a top-quality experience, and we’ll work with you every step of the way to ensure that you get the vehicle and services that meet your needs.
