About Us

Welcome to Akebono Co., Ltd website!

  • COMPANY BACKGROUND

    Akebono Co., Ltd is an authorised worldwide used car exporter and auto auction agent of quality Japanese cars. We provide direct auction access to used vehicle auctions, where you can bid and buy Japanese cars online at wholesale dealer's discounted price.

     

    Our Auto Auction Agency was founded in 2005 in Toyama city, initially focusing only on the Russian market. We acquired a fleet of vessels and port yards eventually establishing our own shipping company, Navis Shipping. Very few exporting companies in Japan actually own vessels. Considering our high export volume of used cars from Japan we established very strong ties with local auction halls, local dealers, customs agencies, inland and sea-transportation companies and succeeded in offering the best rates for our trade partners.

     

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

     

    With our unique client-oriented approach, we strive to make your used car import a hassle-free purchase. Our goal is to make your buying experience rewarding with our honest services, support and professional guidance.

  • WHAT WE DO

    We provide selection and bidding at Japanese Used Car Auctions for direct import from Japan to auto dealers and private buyers. Japanese auto auctions are the cheapest access to the Japanese used car market. Our company's Japanese Auto Auctions database is an integrated direct auction bidding system to bid and buy cars at the lowest possible price. Akebono is offering direct bidding service to our customers in New Zealand, Russia, Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands and other countries. 

  • EFFICIENCY

    Online Used Car Auctions were established as a replacement for the old-style bidding methods. This IT-based innovative technology provides a cost-effective, transparent and convenient 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 remotely from your home, office or even your mobile phone. 

     

  • TIME AND PRICE

    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 changes, storage fees, transportation, the introduction of new models etc. 

  • TRANSPARENCY

    Japanese law authorises access to wholesale auto auctions only to dealers or certified exporters registered in Japan. This limitation eliminates any possibility of 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 guide you through the buying and shipping processes.

  • CHOICE

    Wholesale Auto Auctions provide an abundant choice of JDM cars ( Japanese Domestic Market ), European and American vehicles, 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.

     

  • QUALITY

    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. All exhibited vehicles are carefully inspected by an independent certified inspector. 

    Auction inspection sheet provides the following information:

     

    •  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 it 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
    •  The exact manufacturing date
    •  Whether the car has rust or corrosion and how severe it is  
    •  Whether the interior is clean, its condition, installed equipment and additional options
    •  Whether it has technical issues with the engine, transmission leak, noise, shaking, warning lights or indicators.
