What kind of payment methods can we use?
Currently we accept payments via bank wire transfer and bitcoin. For detailed information, please refer here.
Can you provide me with a receipt for my payment?
No, we do not provide receipts. The bank remittance provides an official written record of the payment transaction for both the buyer and seller.
How long does it take for my bank remittance to be transferred to your bank account?
Please allow a minimum of three (3) business days for your bank remittance to be reflected in our bank account. While this delay may cause some inconvenience, it is the average amount of time required for interbank transactions.
Are pre-export inspections required?
For some countries, a pre-export inspection is mandatory prior to exporting the vehicle. Please visit your country’s appropriate government authorities to obtain all required pre-export inspections lists. References to these authorities can be found in our FAQ section “Basic Export Rules/Regulations per Country.” 

It has been reported that while many countries in the past have not enforced this regulation, they are beginning to impose large fines for violations. Please make sure that the condition of your purchase is inspection inclusive if such is mandatory by your country’s government.
What is a TT Copy? Where can I get it?
Once you submit your payment for transfer at your bank, you will receive a Telegraphic Transfer Copy (TT Copy) as a proof of your remittance. The deposit slip may replace the TT Copy only if the TT Copy is not issued immediately by your bank.
Who is responsible for paying the bank transfer fee?
The buyer is responsible for all bank fees. Please confirm the cost of this fee with your bank before closing the purchase agreement with our staff.
What is the IBAN Code for your bank account?
There is no IBAN Code for Japanese banks. Please instruct your bank to use the Swift Code.
