Used car business has been here since the start of auto industry. Less privileged customers with limited budget are mostly the prime targets. On the other hand there may be different reasons for the previous owners to let go their car, it may be wrong choice of color, size, capacity, options, or some other reason. But the matter of fact is that such vehicles are passed in good prices to the second owners.
Some years ago buying services companies have taken charge of this business targeting prospective first owners. Now what they later do is take these vehicles to used cars auctions and sell to highest bidders.
Japan auctions is the most popular source of exchanging used autos keeping the seller and buyer privacy. From the beginning of 1990 auction business was there but the rise in demands are noticed after 2003 onwards, when some smaller auction houses started to merge and real time bidding became possible due to fast internet connections.
Nowadays while searching for used Japanese Cars it is an enormous task to select the best company because all will boast same one thing ” We are the best bla bla bla…
Here I would like to suggest few guidelines of how to select a good company to take care of you when you are not physically in touch.

Check if there are guarantees provided in cases of major failures.
Check if the Exporter or agent really knows his onions and provide you best advice.
