September 9, 2008 at 6:57 am 5 comments

Best Quality means expensive most of the time. But if you are knowledgeable or skillful on products, services and background of the company you are engaged, it will save you thousands of dollars. Here are some information you could use before signing a purchase order with second hand or pre-owned  car dealers

1 . Quality Assurance – the dealers should have licensed personnel to conduct vehicles inspections. Some areas being look for a quality unit are vehicles exterior inspection, interior cleaning, mechanical inspection and grading, actual photograph of the car’s status for internet posting, dealers seal of quality and surveyors report. That is right; if the car came from Japan, always find the surveyor report signed by license Japanese engineers.

2. Dealers Guarantee – The used car dealers should guarantees that the vehicles described in their website are as accurately as possible in an on-site inspection. The importer has 14 days from the date the vehicle arrives at the destination port to notify dealer of any defects or fault that you feel is claimable. Number of days varies according to dealer. The days describe here is based on IBC JAPAN –’s   quality assurance  statements.

3. Your dealer should provide Odometer Certification.
An odometer (often known colloquially as a mileometer or milometer) is a device used for indicating distance traveled by an automobile or other vehicle. It may be electronic or mechanical. In IBC Japan, They are giving you added protection against odometer fraud through Odometer Inspections, a quality control service that’s standard in all our units at no additional cost to you.

The verification and certification of each vehicle is conducted by Odometer Inspection Services (OIS), a Japan-based company that has provided independent odometer inspections since 2004. IBC Japan’s OIS inspection service includes the following: Odometer reading inspection, Full instrument panel invasion, Ownership verification and Certification. That is right. If the car came from Japan, always find the Odometer certification signed by OIS. You can verify it with the site.

4. Pre-order your preferred cars – If you are looking for a cars or any autos of a particular brand, model, year and other specifications, at a preferred price but could not find one in the  current online auction and in the nearest car dealer in your area then the the dealer can provide it for you. Word wide  used cars dealers are advantageous with this because they have network of car dealers specially on the following countries like US, UK, South Africa, Asia, Australia, South America and New Zealand. With the Pre-Order feature, you can now submit details of vehicles you are interested in. They will search for the vehicle and immediately notify you through email as soon as they can find one that matches your preferences. No fees, no commitment and no hassle at all.

5. Stolen vehicle check – yes your dealer should provide you with stolen vehicle check certificate. A dealer should have a full ownership history checks on all vehicles. They should guarantee the customers all rights and recourse provided for under Japanese law if problems do arise. This can include legal and/or financial assistance, refund of purchase price, or replacement costs as the situation dictates.

6. Maritime insurance – used to be up to the customer buying from Japan. Some dealer set the insurance as mandatory and included in all FOB and CIF prices. The marine cargo insurance set in place is a broad policy designed to cover major damage to vehicles while in transit to the customer, including the sinking of a vessel carrying the vehicles and general average – a shipping term which means that all cargo owners are required to pay their share of costs should a vessel be stranded or run aground. Including martime insurance in pricing protects the customer’s investment against unforeseen disasters at a minimal cost.

7. Deliveries or Containerization services – To offset and minimize shipping delays for customers due to the recurring shortages of Roll-on Roll-off (RoRo) shipping space, dealer should have scientific containerization services in their pre-export processing centers. The containerization operations should follow the best practices of the industry (ISO) and ensure that vehicles are properly handled and secured against unnecessary damage. The containerization personnel are experienced and trained professionals who use only proper tools and equipment specifically designed for loading and unloading vehicles into containers.

8. New and Used Car Parts and Accessories – Yes your dealer should provide you with exact parts the you need. Used car dealers should offer new and used Japanese and American car parts for all vehicles. This feature will provide assurance against frequent industrial innovation on car models and parts.

9. Customer Service –   The dealer should have 24/7 customer service center which can provides timely, accurate and effective responses to inquiries and orders. So, when you think of quality and dependability.
