Car like the classic Mercedes Benz S-Class (W116 body type)
or a more modern 500SEL or 560SEL
or a very modern and super gorgeous SL500 and SL320
or the stunning collaboration with Porsche, the 500E,
you can really see and feel why it’s got to be Benz; why it is that discerning car buyers go for Mercedes Benz, especially when they are choosing a sedan: It’s the balance and proportion of design in the body, so clear to see in the vehicles above. It’s the well thought out, well laid out and well made interiors on these cars. It’s that timelessness of that shared special element that you find in a 280S, an S-class, a 500SEL; cars that are years apart but all pure Benz
And it’s the quality: The Mercedes Benz quality speaks right to you as you drive.
More and more as a Japanese used car exporter here at Japan Car Direct we are getting customers from Europe (especially Poland), from Asia (especially Taiwan), and from North America (especially Canada), and from other countries who want to import a used Mercedes Benz from Japan.
Ports such as Bremerhaven, Southampton, Bristol, Liverpool, Zeebrugge, the Piraeus, Halifax, and Dublin are more and more our landing places for a good used SL500 or SL320, for a 560SEL or an S-Class, for a 500E, or even a more classic Benz bought online from us in Japan.
The original Japanese owners of these cars knew what they wanted in a car and why; and they knew where to find the quality and timeless classy style they required: Benz. Mercedes Benz.
The used Mercedes Benz that are available for import from Japan, from the Japanese used car dealers, the Japanese used car auctions, and at private sales, have usually been loved and cared for….babied.
They are just what our customer is looking for when he says: “I want to buy a good used second hand Mercedes Benz.” Low mileage (low kilometers), good condition, quality used cars; your second hand Benz from Japan is all that.
And whether it’s a classic like the S-Class, or whether it’s a much newer car like an SL500, or even Benz’s off road conqueror, the G-Class
a nice used Mercedes Benz bought from Japan has all the good features and good condition that you want in a top end luxury car.
And these cars have also got that special timelessness and quality, that special “it” that comes with a good Mercedes Benz. It’s like the old song says:
“She’s got it. Yeah, Baby, she’s got it!”
Yeah, a Mercedes Benz sedan has got it.
I was totally clueless and was having a really hard time finding someone that I felt I could trust to help me with these auctions. A couple folks recommended Mathew over at JCD and I very reluctantly reached out. Yeah, I have trust issues. Dude put me at ease and really walked me through the whole process. After a couple months I didn’t end up buying a vehicle, but that’s on me. When I changed my direction, Mathew helped me wrap things up and wished me well. I have zero reservations about reaching out to these guys or recommending anyone else to do so. Very helpful, knowledgeable, prompt and everything I needed. You won’t be disappointed.
Ordered an Acty Van with these guys. five star service all the way. everything went perfect!!!. I was so afraid to import a car myself. JCD made it seamless. I would import wit them and only them again and again. Thanks guys!!
Discovered KEI vehicles about a year ago and spent many hours searching the internet in hopes of finding an affordable van state side, to no avail. That is until I sent a message to Mathew at JCD. He was quick to respond, answered way too many of my silly questions, and worked diligently to find the right van for me. He is thorough, clear, and timely. Made the process simple and enjoyable. I am more than excited to work with him again. I highly recommend the service these gentlemen provide.
Matt made importing a few mini trucks for our farm a breeze. Super easy to deal with and transparent with all the details involved in bidding and winning auctions, the import process, and everything in between.
My truck had been stolen and Matt was helping me bid on mini-trucks to replace it. Of course once we started bidding the truck was recovered, but Matt was upfront and very helpful both getting into and out of our auction based relationship. I would not hesitate to work with JCD again!
I worked with Mat and i believe i couldn't have done any better. This was my first time dealing with importing, Mat was so patient and helpful through this purchase. I also feel he got me the best deals, i have since the first purchase made two more and will continue to do business with Mat.
I purchased three vehicles from auction with Matt, he made it extremely easy and was available whenever I needed him throughout the entire importing process. This is not the last time I will be dealing with them. I plan to order more vehicles in the near future! If your looking for a trustworthy company to order vehicles through I highly recommend JCD!
Mathew was super helpful if helping me get more info and bid on cars I was interested in.
Mathew and the gang were great with helping me with the acquisition of my 1994 Subaru Sambar dump kei truck. I was so excited about getting a truck I was ready to buy just about anything. Matt put the breaks on that and used his experience and knowledge to weed out the potential problems. I use my truck almost daily around our farm moving things and as a work surface. It is great. Mathew and Japan Car Direct helped my sister get a kei truck as well and I have and will continue to recommend them to anyone who has expressed interest in my great little vehicle.
I purchased a 1994 4wd Suzuki Carry Kei truck through JCD. Yoshi helped me during the process and after nearly 3 months and over 100 emails back and forth between questions and translations of auction sheets I finally decided on a truck. I've now had it for nearly a month and couldn't be happier with the purchase. They are extremely promt with responses and answered all questions I had. Being completely new at the importing process I never felt uneasy with my decision. If I ever decide to import another vehicle I will definitely use them again.
Excellent service from beginning to end. I registered over the new year holidays and received an automatic out of office response and also still received personal response indicating when auctions resumed. The process takes doing your own due diligence to study the cars you want but the guys at JCD will assist where they can as well.
When I thought about importing a vehicle from Japan, I was a little apprehensive. I read some real horror stories. Once I got in contact with Yoshi, he put me at ease. The entire crew at Japan Car Direct made the process effortless. From translations, to inspections, to the auctions, I felt comfortable with the entire transaction. The hardest thing was waiting for the ship to arrive at port with my new truck. I highly recommend JCD to anyone considering a vehicle import from Japan.
The entire Team at Japan Car Direct has been incredible at making purchasing a vehicle from Japan quick and effortless. Matt and Yoshiro are extremely friendly, and have performed above and beyond my expectations from start to finish. No matter how many questions you may have, these guys will know all the right answers! If you’re looking for a vehicle from Japan then look no further than Japan Car Direct. 10/10 ⭐'s
After ordering my minivan from Mathew and the folks at JCD, I will definetely use them again. Took three months to get the van but I am on the other side of the world. Van arrived in better condition than I expected although battery was dead and gas was extremely low. Other than that, the documents were sent to me promptly and the process of registering was seamless with the supplied documents. Thank you Matt and team and I look forward to working with you in the future!
When starting my path of importing a JDM classic Land Cruiser, I spent weeks doing research before actually committing because I’d never imported anything before. I was fortunate to come across Japan Car Direct, and that’s where I met Mathew. Wow, where do I start with Mathew..... (Just kidding Chicago!) Mathew was fantastic, from spending time on Skype answering all my questions to teaching me everything I needed to know to successfully find the truck of my dreams. Well today in fact I picked up my truck at the port, and it was in even better condition than I could have seen in the pictures and from the reports provided. Guess what, just ordered another one! You are the Master Mathew. Go Hawks!
