Prior or pre export inspection of used cars is when the country where you are exporting your shipment to, requires that the shipment be inspected prior to it departing the Japan port. Many people aren’t even aware that such services exist in Japan. An independent vehicle inspection is literally a hands-on vehicle inspection by someone with automotive experience who acts as your representative. A vehicle inspection will cover a vehicle bumper to bumper, door to door and roofline to tires. Your potential vehicle will get driven, all options will be tested, and a thorough mechanical inspection will be done. Once the inspection is completed, a written report on the vehicle’s condition is issued, and you will know whether you are getting a solid used car, or buying someone else’s problems with more costs to be spent on repairs.
