    Our Auto Auction Agency was founded in 2005 in Toyama city, initially focusing only on Russian market, the largest market for used cars, we were able to acquire our own fleet of vessels, port yards eventually establishing our own shipping company, Navis Shipping. Considering that, very few exporting companies in Japan actually own vessels, our high export volume used cars from Japan established very strong ties with local auction halls, local dealers, customs agencies, inland and sea-transportation companies. With constant cooperation with the above companies, we succeeded in offering competitive agency, delivery and shipment rates.


    Since November 2017 Akebono Co., Ltd has established new branch office in the city of Yokohama - one of the largest ports in Japan with throughput of more than 20,000 used Japanese vehicles every month. This gives us a great opportunity in expanding our buisness and making our cooperation with customers more qualitative and expeditious.

    Online Used Car Auctions were established as a replacement to the old style paper and hand bidding methods held before. This IT based innovative technology provides cost-effective, convenient and more efficient way for vehicle sourcing, by bringing together a wider market of buyers and sellers. Thanks to this new system, now you can select and bid from your home, office or even your mobile phone. When importing a used vehicles from Japan,only Wholesale Auto Auctions provide the efficient ways to buy vehicles smartly with confidence and transparency.



    Price is the key factor that attracts many sellers and buyers to Japanese Used Car Auctions. Many factors affect the selling price: seasonal demand, local and foreign legislation change, storage fees, transportation, introduction of new models etc. The price is also determined by the way auction goes, sold in just few seconds; auto auctions provide the lowest possible market price. As a result, auto-auction combines both, the demand for quick selling and buying at the right price and the right moment, making it very well-organized and time saving. 


    In order to secure transactions safety, Japanese law prohibits access to Wholesale Auto Auctions only to dealership holders or certified exporters registered in Japan. This limitation eliminates any possibility of conspiracy fraud and guarantees transparency at all stages to all participants.Whether you are an experienced dealer or a first-time bidder, anyone can buy at Akebono Co Ltd without hesitation.As an officially registered and legitimate company in Japan, we will openly guide you through the buying and shiping processes.


    Wholesale Auto Auctions provide an abundant choice of JDM-Japanese Domestic Market cars, European and American vehicles.You can select the car of your choice among passenger cars, JDM sports,JDM performance,JDM racing, classic cars, vans, construction machinery, trucks, buses, vans and bikes. Over 250,000 thousand cars are exhibited each week across auction halls on live auctions, fixed price auctions and stocks.



    Japanese vehicles are famous for durability, fuel efficiency and quality. Japan has sophisticated production quality control, excellent roads conditions, strict after sales inspections to preserve cars in good condition. Nevertheless, all exhibited vehicles are  carefully inspected by an independent certified auction inspector. As a registered member, you can check genuine vehicle history and reduce your maintenance costs in the future.

    With a glance to an auction sheet, you will be able to find:


    •  Whether the vehicle had any accident history
    •  Whether it is repaired properly and which structural damage it had before  
    •  Whether the vehicle has original factory paint or if was repainted
    •  Whether the mileage is genuine or tampered or an odometer was replaced?
    •  Whether the chassis number is genuine or it has been changed during the registration. 
    •  [It is very important to find the exact manufacture date needed for import taxation*] 
    •  Whether the car has rust or corrosion and how severe it is  
    •  How clean is the interior, its condition, installed equipment and additional options?
