What is Auction Sheet?

Japanese car auctions are very much in favour of the buyer. As well as the grading system for the exterior and interior, Japanese car auctions go into great additional detail about the damage that has occurred to every car on the auction sheets. In some cases, they may also point out why the damage has occurred - such as substandard repairs following an accident. Again, the auction sheet is in Japanese, so you will need a translator, but the wealth of information you will gain from these auction sheets is worthy of the translator's rate. Kansai Group can translate it for you.

Different auction houses use different abbreviations to point out things like scratches, dents, waves in panels as well as rust and its severity. It can be confusing for a novice and lead to a bad purchase, particularly because of the subjective nature of inspections.
