The benefits of using DAZMAC to access a car from Japan
If you use a Japan Export Agent in Japan you will still need to arrange your own import permit and compliance on arrival. All Imported vehicles require compliance but not all vehicles can be imported.
The make and model of the vehicle determine which compliance companies you can use, as they have to be registered and approved to comply with your vehicle’s specific make and model.
You can find these companies on the RAWS Australia website
Things to consider when importing cars from japan
You can find Japanese cars online, or even here in Australia. There are lots of Japanese car dealers in Australia selling Japanese imported cars where you can turn up, inspect the car and take it for a test drive before making the purchase.
Regardless of how you purchase your imported Japanese vehicle you need to take the right steps to ensure you are getting what you paid for. There are services available to check the odometer (ODO) readings when the cars were de-registered.
The best way to do this is to request to see the original export certificate. This contains the ODO reading at the time the vehicle was de-registered in Japan so there should only be a slight increase on this for driving on and off the ship etc
