Yahoo Auctions FAQ

How does it work?

We import parts from Japan by container at flat rate shipping costs, and split the cost among buyers. What that means for you? You pay a fraction of the cost to put your items in our container, and then ship them to you once they're in the USA, at a fraction of what it would cost to ship those items from Japan. Instead of paying $500 to ship a set of wheels from Japan, you pay just $250 shipped to your door. Bumpers? Shipping is just $210. 

 

How do I find JDM parts and buy them?

The main source of JDM parts is Yahoo Auctions Japan. Think of it like eBay in Japan, full of JDM parts you'll never find here in the USA.

  1. Use our getting started guide to find parts on auction.
  2. Use the bid form to place your bid. 
  3. If you win, great! We'll email you to confirm you won within 48 hours, and you'll receive an invoice for the additional charges when your item arrives at our yard. Didn't win? No problem, we'll refund you within 24 hours. 
  4. Your item is loaded in our container when it's ready to ship, and sent the USA. 
  5. Once your item lands in the USA, we ship it to you. 

 

How much does it cost?

Our pricing page covers in-depth costs. We charge a 20% commission on each item ($20 minimum), and a flat rate fee based on the item size. For example, if you buy a front bumper for $100, your total cost shipped would be:

  • $100 (bumper)
  • $20 (commission)
  • $210 (shipping) 
  • Total: $330

 

How long does it take?

Containers come by sea, so expect slightly longer shipping times than shipping by air. We try to ship a container once per quarter, or as soon as the container fills. The more parts you buy, the faster the containers come in! 

 

Can I buy new parts?

Yes, we can purchase new parts from any manufacturer in Japan. Send us an email with what part you're looking for, and a part number if possible.

 

I can't find what I'm looking for, can you help?

Sure. If you've read through our getting started guide and still can't find something, send us an email with what you're looking for and we'll get back to you as soon as we can with a link to a search for it.
