Exporting Terms

FOB (Freight-On-Board/Free-On-Board) - This is the cost of the vehicle excluding shipping and local taxes or charges. If you buy the vehicle at FOB price, either from Auction or SABE IMPORTS stock, it includes the vehicle cost and all expenses in Japan (except container packing).

CIF (Cost, Insurance and Freight) - This is the cost of the vehicle including shipping and insurance. If you buy the vehicle at CIF price it includes all the expenses excluding local taxes and charges at the Port of Discharge.

T.T (Telegraphic Transfer) - This is the best way to electronically transfer your deposit and final payment to us. It is fast, safe and effective. In most Countries this is also known as a Wire Transfer. Which can be done at all major banks.

Most Countries require the following documents for customs clearance:

Bill of Lading - This is used to collect the vehicle at the port and to prove you have ownership. It is very important, so it must be kept safe.

Invoice - You may need this to give to customs to pay import taxes.

Translation of Registration Certificate - We will translate the cancellation certificate into English or your preferred language.
