Example :

If you are a Premium Member, and succeed in getting a car at JPY 500,000 at the auction, your total cost would be

JPY 500,000 (car cost) + JPY 70,000 (our fees) = JPY 570,000 (FOB price).

To arrive at the CIF price add the freight fee (from Japan to your country's port) to the FOB price.

Please note that you will have to pay 5% commission charges on car costs exceeding JPY 1,000,000.

For example, if you are a Premium Member and if you would succeed in getting a car at JPY 2,000,000 at the auction, then you will have to pay extra commission of

(2,000,000-1,000,000) x 5% = JPY 50,000.

Thus, the total price of the car will be

2,000,000 + 70,000 + 50,000 = JPY 2,120,000.
