Japanese Yen hits 4 year low! Now is the time to buy a car and import it from Japan!

Japan Partner is pleased and excited to announce that this week’s conversion rate of US Dollar versus the Japanese Yen is $1 USD to ¥121 JPY. It is a significant event; as now goods that you are going to buy from Japan will be at its cheapest from 4 years ago. It is especially good news for customers who import vehicles from Japan! If we compare the difference between the last registered low in the exchange rate of ¥108 yen to the current ¥121 yen, you will see that anything that you buy now will be over 30% cheaper!

We believe that there is a very tangible and significant reduction on cost that will provide you a competitive advantage compared with competition who export from other countries. Let us say that you purchased a car from Japan for $10,000 USD in the past, now the same car at this time will only be for around $7,000 USD. A very big difference in the amount you can save! If you are using container shipping with cars you have purchased with us, we can also load other products that you would like to buy from Japan; meaning that the shipment of other cargo you have purchased other than vehicles which are loaded together with the cars will be free of charge.

Please take some effort to take a serious look at this; the current conversion rate is VERY GOOD should you have planned or wanted to change your old car, purchase several vehicles for your business, or even better; order a full container load of dismantled cars and other cargo.

It is a fact that clients who dismantle cars from Japan for parts will benefit from the current situation much more. Let us say, that on average you can load 17 dismantled cars onto a container, on an average cost of $1500 USD per car. Your total will be $25,500 USD for the container load of car parts (depending on what models you actually have dismantled). Your savings with the current exchange rate from USD to JPY will be $7,650 USD; meaning that you are able to cover your expenses for container shipping and some of the custom clearing duties as well.

To say that letting this moment pass being an epic fail is an understatement. NOW IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY to either start a new business of importing from Japan, or re-vitalize and jump-start your old import business from Japan which suffered from the huge disparity in the previous exchange rate.

Now is the time to do some serious JDM car-shopping! Japan Partner is here to assist you!
