The company does its best to inform all available information about a car, including car’s technical, mechanical conditions reported in Auction sheet or by Auction house upon request during negotiation.

It is important for a customer to acknowledge that used cars from Japan are pre owned by other owner(s), and have been in use for certain period. Thus, the company will not take any responsibility for conditions of any sold unit from Japan.

  • If Cancellation is made by contacting us at least one and a half hours before Auction time of a particular vehicle, it is Free of charge.
  • If Cancellation is made after a car has been purchased, and within an hour from the Auction time for that particular car, Auction house may charge from 50,000 – 90,000 JPY depending on an Auction house. That would be deducted from a customer.
  • If Cancellation is made after more than two hours, we might not be able to cancel it from Auction at all as Auction houses do not accept cancellation after such period.

In this case, we have two ways:

  • Avoiding cancellation from a customer, and proceeding shipment as Auction house cannot take a car.
  • Bringing back to Auction to sell it again as our car. All expenses, including two times Inland Delivery, Auction participation fees, difference prices of Purchase and Sale. We really do not want to be at this stage, since it might be very costly.



It is highly important to understand that it is a customer’s responsibility to make sure a unit or item meets a country’s rules and regulations. HLM AUTOS JAPAN may provide pertinent information as advise, but cannot guarantee a car’s compliance with latest rules and regulations of importer’s country.
