Salvage Cars from Japan
Why Japanese Salvage Cars?
We believe that Japan is the best place to buy salvage cars mainly because cars in Japan are very carefully maintained and the Japanese roads are renown to be the best in the world.
Firstly maintenance standards for cars driven in Japan are one of the highest in the world.
Secondly Japanese government discourages people to own cars more than 5-6 years through a tier based "shaken" (technical car examination) system - the older the car is the more "shaken" tax you have to pay. Basically this system encourages people to buy new cars since shaken taxes vary greatly depending on the age of the car.
Thirdly Japanese roads indeed are the best in the world. There are a lot of SUVs in Japan but most of them hardly saw any dirt. Usually, suspension is only at about 90% of its original (new condition) after being driven on for 6-7 years! And lastly repair costs in Japan are very high making customers buying a new car rather than repairing a damaged car even if it is easily reparable, has low mileage or in a good technical condition - making Japan a very attractive salvage car market.
