Import your car into Japan

Looking to purchase a new vehicle from the UK and have it shipped to Japan? Look no further than our vehicle supply and export services! We specialise in sourcing vehicles to meet your unique specifications.

We work directly with manufacturers and approved merchants to ensure that you get the vehicle you want at a competitive price. Our procurement services include everything from sourcing and procuring the vehicle to arranging for its protected conveyance to Japan.

If we don’t have the vehicle you are looking for in our current stock, we can leverage our extensive database to source it for you. We offer expedited shipping to Japan using the RoRo (Roll On Roll Off) method through a trusted logistics company. This is a cost-effective and convenient method where the vehicle is driven onto a shipping vessel and secured for transit.

Alternatively, if you need to ship personal items along with your vehicle or have a high-value vehicle (or if you just prefer another shipping method), we also offer container shipping options, and (if suitable), Air Freight.

We also specialise in exporting tax-free cars (brand new or VAT-qualifying used cars) so our Japanese clients can make huge savings when purchasing a vehicle from us.

We understand that the process of shipping and exporting a vehicle can be daunting, but our expertise and experience make it stress-free. Contact us today to learn more about our vehicle supply and export services and let us help you ship your dream vehicle to Japan.
