In Japan like many other countries you have a group of specialized companies that form an old boys network for certain car dealers. In Japan, this is called Jagnet for the purpose of this article. Jagnet is great and if you pay your yearly fee you are guaranteed a spot on its website. However, they only service Sri Lanka, Pakistan & African regions predominately and they do not certify the dealers who join as long as they pay the yearly fee. We like Jumvia but we are certainly not sharing their ideas. Jagnet has a pretty goo rap but they don’t do a great deal honestly and serve to help themselves firstly
We are exporters and have been involved with exporting for a number of years, and yes we are one of many exporters on this website. However, we are not putting ourselves first and are just one of many other dealers that you will find here on the website. We decided upon this stance as we firmly believe that any company joining this website must meet the same high standards that we set for ourselves, so why should we take pole position so to speak as we are all equal. Go hard or go home we say!
Why did we take such a stance?
Recently our company director was contacted by a good client asking if he had heard of a company named “XYZ Imports” (fictitious name but true story) The client was interested in a car that XYZ Imports had in its auction page. Our director researched XYZ Imports and found the following.
There are hundreds of companies out there like this so we decided to do something about it as there are no regulations governing who can and can’t start their own import-export business from Japan.
This was enough to wake us up and do something and here is the result
Any dealer joining our service will have to pass a series of small tests as well as have a clean record on the internet. They also must have a comprehensive website that offers support and many information pages. If all they are is a page with a bit of data leading to an auction link they won’t make it here. Any company like our dear friends at XYZ Imports won’t make it anywhere close to our listings pages.
It’s simple and no other Japanese-based car dealer network system is offering this type of protection for the car-buying public. Ultimately we are only as good as the information we are provided with and it’s still up to you as the vehicle buyer to do your due diligence before buying anything. But rest assured if the advertiser on our website has this certification they were 100% at the time they applied and we certified them.
