Carwebs began like many great kiwi businesses, with some bloke having a crack at ‘doing it himself’. That’s exactly what Carwebs founder Ash Dann did back in 1991 when it came time to upgrade the family sedan.
Ash was lucky enough to know someone in Japan who introduced him to all the right people. By going straight to the source in Japan and importing the car direct, Ash bagged himself a bargain. It was such a bargain in fact when his mates found out, they all wanted one too, and Ash was keen to help them out. 25 years and thousands of cars later, Carwebs.co.nz has honed the process and is still really just a way of helping people out.
The Carwebs experience has been designed to make importing your own car simple and risk free. Carwebs.co.nz gives you direct access to search all the best auction houses in Japan, in other words, the same place the car dealers buy their cars wholesale. Basically the way it works is that you find the car you want, and we do the rest.
Simple. We handle everything from physical inspections, placing bids, organizing shipping and insurance, compliance, grooming and registration. We’’ll have the car shipped to your port or we’ll even pick you up from the airport if you want us to prepare the car here in Auckland. We guarantee the condition and compliance of all our imports to make the whole process completely risk free. Not only that, we’ve gone and opened our books to make our pricing structure 100% transparent, just to show you we’re not here to pull a swift one on you. http://carwebs/cost-breakdown/
We’re not usually ones to blow our own trumpet, but with over two decades of car importing experience, we are experts at what we do. Feel free to pick our brains, give us a call or flick us an email and we’ll be happy to help you out.
