JAP Express is an auto-parts export specialist. We run 3 recycle and dismantling yards here in Kyoto, where we strip cars and parts for export by container.


We currently supply customers in New Zealand, Australia, East Timor, Kiribati, Hawaii, Maldives, Jamaica, Dominica Republic, Trinidad Russia & Kazakhstan.  We provide a complete Supply---Strip---Load & Ship auto-parts container service


Here's how it Works...


  1. Send us  your consignee details and port of destination
  2. Next we need a list of vehicles and parts you’re targeting  (E.g. Make/model of cars & engines, trans, nose cuts, half cuts etc…)
  3. We’ll send you a quote
  4. If the quote is acceptable, we require a bond deposit which is 30% - 50% of the total   
  5. Once the bond is paid, you can either select cars directly from Japan Car-Auctions or otherwise choose from our Own-Stock
  6. You'll need to send us your Cut-List which is a list of instructions on how you want each vehicle dismantled
  7. Vehicles will then be cut and dismantled exactly to your requirements 
  8. Your container will be neatly packed, then sent back to port for Japan pre-export customs clearance
  9. Once cleared your container will be shipped to your designated port
  10. Shipping documents will all be sent by EMS or DHL express courier  




A) Cars bought from auction: Car cost + Auc fee + Recycle tax (not claimable) + Transport to our factory + Cut Fees @ Y30,000  


B) Cars selected from our stock include the Y30,000 cut fee. 

*The above rates are for standard Japanese type vehicles, it does not cover trucks, commercial vehicles or European cars which are much more complex to dismantle and load. 


BOND DEPOSIT  To confirm an order, we require a bond-deposit of 30% ~ 50% of the total value. Exact amount depends on region. Once the bond deposit is confirmed, we’ll gather the required vehicles “up to twice the value of your bond deposit”. If your order exceeds this, you'll need to top up your bond. 


FINAL PAYMENT is due once the container is fully loaded and doors sealed. You will be sent a packing list, final invoice, detailed photos of the loading and scanned copy of the B/L 


CONTAINER FEE  we also charge a container fee of Y125,000 which covers the drayage (container road transport) Container loading, Japan side customs and documentation 

Note: this does not include ocean freight




How Many Cars fit into a Container: 20Ft approx. 12 units 40Ft approx. 32- 35 units


Drayage: the cost to road transport the container from the Osaka or Kobe port to our loading in Yawata for loading - and then back to the port again for shipment. 


What's a Cut List:  a cut list is a list of instructions telling us how you want each car to be dismantled -


Engines - Trans & Sus:  - We stock hundreds of engine/transmissions for sale which can added to your order


Loose Parts: Apart from the parts which will be removed from the complete vehicles, We can also supply you with ‘Loose Parts’ which helps top up the container


Nose Cuts: We cut through the chassis rails and supply the entire front end complete. (see pic in photo gallery*)  


Half Cuts: We remove the front glass and cut through the A & B pillar , then we pull back the carpet and cut across the floor giving you a complete front half of the vehicle


Stripped our Body Shell: The benefits of completely stripping out a body shell is that it may enable you to import the vehicle as parts, and then reassemble the vehicle on arrival*  


Prohibited Items: Flammables, Battery’s, Pre-tensioner Seatbelts, SRS Airbags etc...


Recycle Certificate: Every Half-Cut or Stripped-Out vehicle must have an accompanying ‘recycle certificate’ to clear Japan side customs. In order to get a recycle certificate it is mandatory to surrender ALL of SRS Air-bags and Pre-tensioner seatbelts of that vehicle.  


Shipping & Japan Side Customs: We handle all the red-tape and documentation required to get your container safely through Japan customs and cleared for shipment.
