Our third vehicle via japautoagent. This one is for our son-in-law. Again we were guided through the process, which is now quite straight forward. The only drawback is the anticipation of waiting for our next vehicle. We currently travel in a Mazda Bongo, which is superb (also bought from Paul), and, are considering trading up to a Nissan Elgrand. We will undoubtedly get back more than we paid for the Bongo, so, we can buy a Nissan, and, run the Bongo for a year, without extra cost. The Mitsubishi is unmarked, low mileage, purrs along, for 5 grand is saving us thousands. Bernard & Pam
Very friendly and helpful, exactly what i was looking for. A real head turning car, out standing perfromance. Thanks alot.
This (Honda Stream) was the second car our family have purchased from Paul at Japautoagent Ltd, the first happened to be a (Nissan Elgrand) So having done this once before we had a good idea of how the process worked, Paul managed to secure a 2004 model one owner that had only done 17,000 miles, It was a very clean car indeed. I can only say from our experience based on the two cars we have purchased, that we would recommend Paul at Japautoagent to anyone who is interested in personally importing a used car from Japan, the excellent quality you can get for the price you pay is amazing, the service and communication is also excellent we were kept informed at each step was of the process, I knew when the car would arrive and what the costs were going to be. To sum it up,WE ARE NOW TWO HAPPY CUSTOMERS! Mrs Geraldine Payne and Mr Joe March. Thank you very Paul.
I have had 2 lucidas/enimas that paul(jap autos) has imported for me.I wanted genuine very low mileage vehicles so had to wait a bit till he found them but it was worth the wait, both under 20.000 miles, in stunning condition and with full service history!! paul is super efficient, explains everything and is 100% trustworthy. paul has very discerning contacts in japan who describe each vehicle 100% acurately, down to saying" slight scuff on offside rear bumper"!! what amazes me is that you know everything eveything possible about the vehicle even down to the landing price to within a few yen! everything is so smooth and efficient. i think its a unique operation and is constantly upgrading and improving. dont hesitate to use jap autos top quality cars at fantastic prices.Cheshire
I would like to thank Paul for his help in purchasing our Nissan Elgrand. We have had far better help and guidance from him than we ever had buying from a garage. Paul doesn't disappear when the money changes hands! He always kept in contact and was easy to get hold of. A GREAT way to buy a car. Highly recommended.
A big thank's to Paul for handling the import of my Skyline GTR. It's exactly what i was looking for. Paul is always their to help if you have any worries about the progress of the shipping of your car and will set your mind at ease and try and solve any problems that might arise. It was a bit daunting at first when i first paid for the car but be rest assured that paul and his collegues pick all the best cars and provide a reliable service. I Would definately use Japautoagents again.
This is my first import, and I am very happy to recommend Paul at Japautoagent. I contacted Paul with details of what I was looking for, and was immediately impressed with his helpful attitude, and knowledge. The whole process was explained fully to me from the auction process, the shipping, the customs and import duty, SVA and MOT testing, registration and road fund licence. I was shown several vehicles with the auction reports explained fully to me. At no time was any pressure put on me to bid for a vehicle, and Paul had plenty of patience, as I am the first to admit that I was being extremely particular in my requirements. Once my vehicle was paid for, I was extremely pleased that Paul kept in contact with me during the shipping, collection from the docks, SVA and MOT testing, and even advised me with the registration process. By purchasing my vehicle from Japautoagent, I am confident that I have made significant savings on what I would have had to pay from a forecourt for a similar vehicle. I fully recommend Japautoagent, and will definitely use the service again. Paul – Thank you very much for sourcing me such a fantastic Elgrand!! You are very well thought of by members in the Elgrand owners club!!
It's always a worry putting your faith and money into a car you won't physically see through a person you'll never meet. Let me put your worries to rest Paul knows his cars and is passionate about getting you the best car for your money. "I need to tune in to exactly what your after" he says, well he had his work cut out with me. I was after a unmodified low milage Mazda RX-7 type R on a tight budget. Guess what I am now the proud owner of an unmodified low milage Mazda RX-7 type R which came in on budget. I had to be patient as most RX-7's are modified, Paul always kept me informed on what was available and never pushed for a quick sale. I thought once the car was purchased in Japan Paul would be glad to get rid of me as I've been such a picky pest – but he's been completely the opposite. He has kept me informed throughtout the shipping process. He also advised shipping agents and various organisations who if required would convert the car to UK spec. The car has now arrived and it exactly matches the photos provided and it's everything I expected it would be. He has also offered to talk me through the registration process advising me what to put in each box of the V55/5. I would (and will) totally recommend Jap auto agents to anyone thinking of buying a car.
This is the second superb Toyota MPV we have imported using Japautoagent Ltd, the first was a Toyota Hi Ace Regius and would recommend use them, again we received excellent service from Paul,
What a great service, from start to finish Paul had been doing his upmost to communicate everything to me, I don't know anyone with more knowledge with respect to importing cars. This is my first import and it certainly wont be the last with Japautoagent. Paul helped and reassured me every step of the way, including saving me money by introducing me to Mike Dutton of intercep.co.uk who did a great job with all the SVA, MOT and DVLA work prior to me collecting it. The car itself drives like a dream, its so smooth and I am delighted with it. When I contacted Paul, I told him I needed an Elgrand by Christmas, Paul pulled all the stops and gave me an early christmas present, its the 19th December 2007, perfect. You tell Japautoagent what you want and they deliver! You are putting your faith and your money into good hands, I worried that I would never see my Elgrand when I paid for something I had never seen to someone I had only spoken to over the phone, do not fret however, Japautoagent delivered the goods so to speak. Thanks Paul, you did a fantastic job.
Paul is 110% committed to helping, nothing is too much trouble, even after you have received the car he is a ready source information and advice. You get better after sales support from Paul than from most main dealers; how he does it for the money I have no idea. It took several weeks to find the exact car in the right condition but Paul never tired of looking and pointed out all the weaknesses of lesser cars we might have bought without his experience to fall back on. On occasion he even arranged teleconferences with his man in Japan to discuss some more esoteric aspects of our purchase. I can’t recommend him too highly
Having never bought an imported car before, to say I was a little worried about the whole process would be understatement. Paul was brilliant from start to finish though. He kept me regulary informed, answered any questions I had and put my mind at rest after our first phone call! He really does know his stuff and I cant recommend him enough. Im sure I will want to import again and Japautoagent is where Ill come. Cheers Paul, the car is brilliant!
