  • 5 star review  Can't fault these guys - this was the first time I've bought a car at any auction, let alone one in Japan. The support from Yoshiro was brilliant, very patient with me and ensured that I only bid on cars worth having. The car I have bought far exceeds expectations in every way and the whole process of purchase and shipping was all taken care of - top marks and thank you

    5 star review  Japan Car Direct helped me find my dream car. We found a great deal on an ST205. Yoshiro was fantastic and super responsive and patient with all of my questions. They made navigating the import process a breeze. This is a reputable company. I highly recommend them if you’re interested in importing your very own JDM.

    5 star review  So pleased with our companies new Japanese mini-truck import. Japan Car Direct made it all too easy. We made a few first-timer mistakes on the paperwork but the next import will be even smoother. Looking forward to the next experience.

    5 star review  Yoshiro and the folks over at JapanCarDirect are the best! They were super helpful with my first time importing a vehicle to the US and were quick to answer all of the first-time questions I had about the process. The vehicle I got was exactly as I expected based on the pre-bidding inspection that they organized and I am beyond thrilled with my new (to me) little van. I'll definitely be working with them again for the next vehicle I look to import

    5 star review  This was our first time importing a vehicle and we would hands down use Japan Car Direct again. Taylor made everything so simple and stress free. We would our Toyota Land Cruiser and would definitely use Japan Car Direct again.

    5 star review  First time customer review: All around a great company to work with. Mathew was very responsive and helped me throughout the entire process. With this being the first time importing a vehicle, there were a lot of questions I had and he made sure to answer everything and kept me posted throughout the process. I would highly recommend Japan Car Direct and would happily work with them in the future.

  • 5 star review  My sales rep at JCD, Taylor, was amazing. He was quick to get me auction info, provided me good insights on possible price points, and was ready to answer any questions all the way through the process. The import was painless and the car is great. I will 100% use them again in the future!

    5 star review  Mathew was extremely patient with me from start to finish, during a time when COVID backlogs and the Suez canal blockage happened - can only imagine this being mega stressful from your side! Super efficient, direct and no fuss, I've already recommended JCD to friends and will definitely be back in the future.

    5 star review  10 stars for service! This was my first time importing, we used JPD on a recommendation from a friend and I was really blown away by the service which Andrew and Mathew provided. It was certainly a pleasure dealing with them, very professional and the communication was great. I'd be happy to recommend and use them again. Thanks team for my new Dad wagon!

  • 5 star review  In a time were lots of exporters are trying to make a quick dollar and sell you a rusty car, Japan Car Direct looks out for you and makes sure you find a vehicle that you will be happy with. Both Andrew and Matthew were patient with me as I searched for my dream FD. They told me what to look for on the auction sheets and helped me spot some issues and let me know when to avoid a car. Their experience in exportation is unmatched and transparent every step of the way. I will defiantly be coming back for my next import, their service can not be matched!

Your communication and assistance, even when we were pestering you, was fantastic. We look forward to dealing with you again for future purchases. If you and your better half ever come to Calgary drop us a line and you will be more than welcome to stay with us. I will strongly recommend japan car direct to anyone wanting to import a JDM vehicle to Canada.

    5 star review  After deciding to import a vehicle myself from Japan to the US, Japan car direct was one of the first names to come up. Of course this being the first time that I have ever done anything like this I had countless questions about the process and how it all works. Mathew from JCD could not have made this whole process any easier for me, I look forward to doing more business with them when I am ready for my next import car. the entire process was very trustworthy and completely transparent from the very beginning and I would recommend them to anyone 100%!
