The Auction Bidding Process

  • 1. Registration

    The process is free and will provide you with direct access to our Japanese auction houses, allowing you to manage, view, and place bids on vehicles.

  • 2. Authentication

    New accounts are automatically set up as guest accounts and bids made under this status will not be considered legitimate. To make your bids valid, a $1000 deposit is required for first-time buyers or wholesale importers.

  • 3. Bid | Stock

    Place a bid on your desired vehicle through our auction system. We will verify your bid and translate the auction sheet for you before the auction begins.

  • 4. Payment

    Upon successful bidding, an invoice will be issued, including the cost of the vehicle and FOB (Freight on Board). Payment must be made within 1-3 days of receiving the invoice.

  • 5. Shipment

    Upon confirmation of payment, we will send all required import documents via courier services (DHL, FedEx, UPS, or DMS) to your designated address. Vehicle shipping typically takes 3 to 4 weeks.

  • 6. Receiving Your Vehicle

    For New Zealand customers, once the vehicle arrives at your destination port, you can choose to handle compliance yourself or have Urban Imports assist you.

What Our People Say

Very happy with the results thanks to their hard work and patience.

Johny helped me find a great deal on an imported s2000. Went above and beyond. Would recommend if you are looking to import a performance car - they know their stuff!

Wonderful Experience Provider.

Proactively target customer directed infrastructures via parallel e-business. Authoritatively coordinate superior potentialities through value-added content. Rapidiously visualize collaborative growth strategies before client-focused web services. Competently strategize out-of-the-box e-services.

Benny Jekel
Best experience I’ve ever had when purchasing a car.

The team is very professional and took great care of me. Jackie was able to provide me with a deal that had my best interest in mind. Johnny was also great with giving me updates throughout the process of getting the car ready. I appreciate this type of service compared to other car dealers who are very pushy. It is evident that the vehicles they import have been taken care of then well looked after by them, giving you the peace of mind to buy in confidence. I wouldn’t trust buying an imported car from anyone else! I highly recommend Urban Imports to anyone who is looking to buy their next car!

Michael Fajardo
Awesome experience, great easy and fast customer service.

Purchased a mps3 in fantastic condition, helped me sort financing and had the car with a fresh rego, warrant and detail within 48hrs.

Liam Smart
The quality of the cars are showroom condition.

A couple of my friends have got their R34 Skylines and an Evo 10 from here, the quality of the cars are showroom condition. Their office setup is really cool too, I'm ordering 2002 S8 RX-7 through them, can't wait til it arrives. The guy that took me through the process I think his name was Jackie, talk to him - got my friend approved through finance.
