Japanese Auto Auction Series Part 7 – ORIX

August 8, 2008

Company: ORIX
General Website:
Locations: Kobe, Atsugi, Nagoya, Fukuoka
Auctions Held: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday

In continuation to our series on different auto auctions in Japan, I would like to present ORIX Rental Service Auctions. ORIX is a major rental company in Japan and Asia. Like most rental companies, cars must constantly be replaced with new, more attractive. So you might wonder where that car you rented a few years went? Well most like for ORIX cars, they were probably auctioned off to smart buyers.

One benefit of buying from a rental company’s auction is that you know all the cars are from the same owner. That means there is a roughly the same owner’s care to all the cars presented. Also, the cars would’ve been reguarly checked and serviced by their mechanics. As a rental company, they will want to recover as much value from the car as possible and most likely wouldn’t neglect the cars condition.

One thing to note is that this auction is “Nyuusatsu”. That means you just place a bid once instead of “battling” your way up. All offers are collected and the person with the highest bid wins. This is different from the typical, but it has some benefits. For example, the agent is not wasting time on the actual bidding process and can spend more time on other things like inspecting.

Buying from rental company auctions, such as ORIX’s, has many benefital aspects. Having your exporting agent able to check their auction would be useful, especially for cars and trucks you would expect in a rental fleet.

Japanese Auto Auction Series Part 5 – Bay Auc

June 6, 2008

Bay-Auc - Japanese Auto Auction in Osaka, Japan

Official Website: www.bay-auc.com
Founded: 1977; Established: 1982
Location: Osaka; Patners: MAA, SUAA
Auctions Held: Wednesday

Bay Auc is a well known auto auction in Japan. One particular advantage this auto auction has over many other auctions is its location. It is situated in an very good location in Osaka, one of the biggest international shipping ports of Japan. The city itself is second only to Tokyo in economical power. You will find that many Japanese used car exporters are either based in the Osaka area or heavily use the Osaka Port for shipping vehicles.

The car auction promises to exhibit at least 3,500 to 4,000 cars every Wednesday starting at 9 AM. It has two simultaneous auction “lanes” running at 400 images an hour. Auction lanes are where they have more than one car being auctioned at any moment. This makes getting through the thousands of cars possible. Bay Auc is not the biggest auction, but they do a good job and have many cars to go through.
