JDM Importer aims to provide Japanese auction access to the masses. You pick the car and we do the rest. Full service from auction to driveway. We charge a low, flat fee so you can avoid all the retail premiums.
JDMImporter.com is the service side of Fed Legal Imports, while FedLegalImports.com is the product side of the company. Fed Legal Imports purchased its first cars at Japanese auction in 2015. Since then the company has imported hundreds of cars to be sold via retail channels in the United States. Now it’s time for you to become the JDM Importer (with our help of course).
We accept payment via the following methods:
- ACH debit from your bank account via Quickbooks
- Apple Pay
- Cash App
- Facebook Pay
- Paypal as personal only
- Wire Transfer
Why do we not take Paypal sent as payment? Two reasons. First, Paypal now keeps the fees even if we issue a full refund. Example: You send $1000 deposit, we get charged roughly $30, you request your deposit back before we find a car for you, you get your money back and we still get charged the $30. Why should we have to pay that fee?
Second, these vehicles are being sourced for you, not inventory, we have to prevent chargebacks by any means so we do not get stuck with cars that we wouldn’t have bought otherwise.
