You can bid on auto parts at Yahoo Japan Auction. However, Japanese postal service has a weight -and-size limit. We cannot handle very large or very heavy items which exceed the limit, such as car engines, car bodies, car seats, bumpers, hoods, front spoilers and so on. Also, Japan Post has tightened the restriction on contents of a parcel for security reasons and they no longer handle items which contain gas or air such as wheels with tires, steering wheels with airbags, suspentions which contain gas. Please DO NOT bid on these items. If you bid on an item that is too large or too heavy to be shipped or Japan Post does not handle, normally we use Fedex or other shipping companies instead, and which will certainly cost you a fortune.
You are responsible for all the fees. Additionally, you will be subject to a $120 penalty and handling fee. The followings are some examples of shipping costs our customers paid.
A hood - $1030
A front spoiler - $1033
A pair of front fenders - $1805
A motorbike wheel with a tire - $ 727
As a rule, shipping costs jump up when we don't use Japan Post. So we do not recommend you bid on this kind of item, but if you seriously want to import an oversized item and don't mind bearing the shipping, please contact us in advance.
