Register to become a member of SBTJapan.com and get access to all the cars available at multiple auction houses.
Step-2- Security Deposit
You need to deposit the predetermined amount of money before you participate in auctions. (See below). Without the deposit, we cannot bid on any of the cars at the auctions in place of you. If you cannot make a successful bid, security deposit will be fully refunded or allocated to the payment for reserved/ordered car(s) based on the customer's request.

Step-3- Bidding cars at the auctions
- You can place the bid at our auction websites, and our buyers will bid on the car in place of you.
- We will charge you only the price of the successful bid. So try to place as high bid as you can in order to increase the chance of successful bid.
Step-4- Auction Result
We will notify you of the result of your bid. Once you win the bid, we will send you a proforma invoice that tells you the total price including the price of car(s) and FOB or C&F. The total price will be calculated based on the original buying price at the auction.
Step-5- Final Payment
The final payment will be required within 7 working days. Payment as scheduled saves your order from cancellation.
In case of order cancellation:
Cancellation while the auction is underway, there will be a minimum cancellation fee of 100,000 JPY.
Cancellation after the auction has closed will result in a minimum cancellation fee of 100,000 JPY as handling/service charge.
Step-6- Shipping
The shipping will be arranged as soon as the payment is confirmed.
