Auctions In JAPAN
In Japan, cars are sold / bought at auctions rather than trading between individuals.
     This is Japan custom and car system for more than 40 years.
There are many auctions from small (several 100 cars/week) to giant auction houses (1,000 or more cars/ week, the biggest 50,000 cars/week).


     There are total of 141 auction sites in Japan.


     It has always been very good advantage of "Authorized Used Car Dealers" trading used cars at these 'Members - only auctions' with low car prices . These auctions are not open to general public.
