Q: How do I find out shipping cost of car to my port?
To find out shipping cost of a car you need to multiply car shipping cost per cubic metre and export size of car you want to buy. You may find export size of cars in our stock list in export size column. Car shipping cost per cubic metre can be found on the Car Shipping Cost page. For example export size of Nissan Primera is 10.48 cubic metres in accordance with our stock list and car shipping cost to Port Durban (South Africa) is US$70.00 per cubic metre. This means that car shipping cost of Nissan Primera is 10.48*70 = US$734.00. Car shipping cost to some ports is set per unit. For example shipping cost of any car to port Manila (Philippines) is US$540.00. Some cars need to be transported in a container due to their condition or in the case when shipping to some ports possible only in a container.

Q: What is FOB price?
FOB is abbreviation of "Free on board". FOB price applies for all cars importes from Japan unless you come to our yards to take a car by yourself. FOB price includes FOB export arragements in Japan (export and customs documents, documents translation), delivery of car from yards to port and loading onto the ship. Our FOB charge is one of the lowest and is only US$467.00 for the car to be imported from Japan. In other words FOB price equals to car price plus US$467.00. FOB price does not include car shipping cost to your port.
