Buying From Japanese Car Auctions
August 24, 2019 Posted by: Doston

Car auctions in Japan are huge! Tuesday through Saturday every week thousands of cars are sold each day. While a large number of these are your everyday cars that you see all over the roads of Japan, there are also a lot of JDM sports cars for sale.

Sourcing a car from auction can be a great way to get a good deal on an awesome JDM car. When purchasing from the auction you do have to be careful though as there are many bad cars mixed into the lot. While most of the time the auction sheet will give you a pretty good understanding of anything that is wrong with the car, it is still best to look at the car in person. When we source a car for a customer from the auctions that is one service that we do offer.

Another thing you have to be careful with when looking to buy a car from the auction is scammers. There are many bad "dealers" out there that try to hide the auction sheet or even offer cars that are not at the auction for sale. At Garage Defend we have been sourcing cars for years and have many satisfied customer who have left us great reviews. When purchasing with us not only will we provide great service but also be very transparent through the whole process.

The great thing about the auction system is the variety of cars that are for sale! Of course you will always find nice GTRs, Supras, Silvias, Rx7s and all of those JDM icons for sale but also if you are feeling wild the auctions can provide you with the right car to fill those needs. In no time you could be cruising down the road in your crazy Bosozoku van listening to some super kawaii music!

It's not often we come across a true factory yellow Nissan Skyline R34 but we found one! Of course we had to purchase it and bring it to Garage Defend to offer to all of you. Lightning Yellow was only produced on 68 BNR34s

A lot of people joke about the R33 GTR and call it a boat or say that it is the forgotten about Skyline generation. With 60 percent more R32 GTRs being produced than R33 GTRs maybe it does get overlooked sometimes? In our eyes

We have had a busy few months at our shop! Lots of beautiful Skylines and Supras have been moving in and out faster than we can keep them in stock. Toyota Supras from Japan are in high demand in the USA right now and many custo
