Japanese History Check aims to protect consumers worldwide from dodgy importers by providing the most comprehensive odometer and history checking service currently available for cars that have left Japan.
For years dodgy motor dealers & importers have been able to maximise their profits by buying cheap, high-mileage or accident repaired vehicles in Japan and selling them for top dollar as immaculate low-mileage vehicles in foreign markets. For buyers, though, it means you're not getting what you pay for. It can also mean a serious mechanical failure (more prevalent in higher mileage vehicles) may be just around the corner when you're expecting many years of trouble free motoring. Buying a car which was a used import from Japan? Get it checked!
We source and translate auction sheets from Japan's many auction houses. Our auction sheet service can provide you with: independent assessment and grading, mileage reading, notes on condition (including rust), auction photos, accident repair history, confirmation of model type, odometer check verification.
We also source and translate registration certificate (de-registration certificate, export certificate) documents direct from the government offices of MLIT in Japan. Registration documents can provide you with: dated mileage readings, registration status, odometer history check, region of use, scheduled window of export, cancellation dates, number plate, exporter or previous owner information.
