Land transportation in Japan


Each company, a member of the auction, has its own purchase limit amount per day. In case that a company has exceeded its daily limit, it can request an auction to raise its limit. In the case of auction purchases, the successful bidder must make payment within 5 to 7 days (depending on the auction house) including the date of the auction. Some dealers can only take out the car after the payment has been made, others alowed to take the cars without payment. If the company increased its purchase limit, then it can only take away without payment those cars for which the limit was not exceeded. If the company did not pick up the purchased cars on time, the auction assigns a penalty fee or re-lists the car again for auction. In case of re-listing the car for the auction, company which violated the rules, asks the auction to cancel the auction for that car and has to pay the auction fee.


Purchased cars should be picked up from auctions in provided time and within the dead line.

Depending on auction house driver could be asked for: delivery ticket, Auction house mebership card, personal ID and drivers' license.




In case of CAA group: Car could be picked up from auction, after one hour of the successful purchase. From Tuesday to Thursday car could be taken from auction 24 hours. In order to pick up car, driver has to have drivers' license and auction POS id. Auction gives the driver so called 搬出券 ("Hanshitsu-ken") "Carry-out ticket" , with that ticket driver carries out the car from auction.


From the auction, the car is usually delivered to a customs broker's yard in Japan. Such yards are located near ports.
