  • I bought the above car from SBT – UK, a Volkswagen Tiguan at a very competitive price. It arrived in Mombasa Kenya in very good condition.
    This has encouraged me to trust SBT- UK as a reliable , honest car dealer worthy of introduction to potential clients here in Kenya.
    I will continue buying more cars from here. Below in the photo is me in striped  shirt

  • I recently bought a car using SBT Japan and my account manager was the above mentioned.  I bought a Toyota Passo vehicle registration number KCL 133 H.

    I would like to commend your staff member Mrs Christine Kigathi mentioned above for exceptional & outstanding customer service offered to me during the entire process of the car purchase.

    She constantly kept me informed on the goings on of the process and I must say that it was a stress free process for me because she frequently kept me updated.

    I request if you may pass this commendation to her on my behalf.

    I hope to send you referrals from my friends or family members if & when they are ready to import a car.

    With regards,

    Esther and Alex

    This is to anyone looking still undecided on where they can get a new car from .

    This year i started the process of getting a car. I visited all the car yards on Ngong Road + Langata road but still couldn’t get what i was looking for. Finally I came across SBT Japan Kenya on Facebook , made contact in July and started the process of importing a car. Initially you will meet and have an account manager who will be your contact person. You will then decide on the budget and car of choice. I then made a refundable deposit (1,500$) as advised by my SBT manager and activated my account which I used (and still do use ) to access the auctions daily and see what cars are on the site .

    You can either get a car that SBT has in stock or you can get a car from the auction. From the auctions you will get EVERYTHING from your favorite colour to the best alloy rims on the market. We started the process the last week of July and 2weeks later in August we won with our bid from the auctions and I HAD A CAR.

    The SBT manager Mr Nadeem Alibhai then called me and guided me through the final purchase process, through the inspection and I was even notified when the car got into the ship from Japan. The whole process was flawless , the ship arrived on time and I was able to pay duty and clear the car. The Estimates from SBT were exact to the shilling , the SBT manager does still call to find out how the car is doing . 5 stars for the service from SBT , would definitely recommend it to anyone. 

    NB : I did not pay anything to SBT Japan Kenya , I don’t know how they pay their bills!!

  • I am pasting this testimonial on behalf of my Family, clients and I , first I would like to say that SBT CO. Has been a good source of my Family income and it has also helped me get very potential clients because of the high quality cars I have been getting from SBT.

    I would also want to bring to your attention that I have had a cordial relationship with SBT CO, and more so my account manager Mr Arman Elahi, he has not only given me very good offers but also very clean and high end units, he has given me a chance to have clients who have come back, not to also forget my new account manager Masood Ahmed.

    Am looking forward for a bright year ahead and a good working relationship with this team.
    As you can clearly see from the photos here are some of the high end units I got from your company for a couple of years we have been in business with SBT.
    It is therefore my hope and prayer that I will continue to do business with you and get to have more units and be able to satisfy my clients needs.
    For your information my ten year old son is a big fun of SBT CO. He talks about it always to his friends in school, he has stickers of the company in his bedroom.
