Auction Sheets Explained

  • On 04, Mar 2010

Auction sheets can be a good reference to a vehicles condition but this is all that they are, reference. Auction sheets are provided and filled in (along with vehicle owners) by auction house inspectors. The inspector’s at large auction houses go through hundreds of vehicles per day and this is why some things can slip through the cracks.

This is why a reputable and trustworthy importer/exporter is handy. At RightDrive, we employ staff in Japan that attend auction houses on our behalf daily for close up inspections so that no such things happen. Vehicle conditions are reported to us so as to ensure their legitimacy and to spot the things the inspectors sometimes miss.

This is why we also go the extra mile with all of our imports and assume responsibility for any flaws to make sure our vehicles are in the best possible condition for customers. Our extra efforts are what allow us to offer industry exclusive powertrain warranty.

Below is a breakdown of auction sheets and things to look for.

Exterior Condition:

5. Vehicle is like new. All original body parts. No repair needed on vehicle. Usually only given to vehicles less than 3 years old.

4.5. Vehicle is in excellent condition. No slight scratches or dents.

4. Vehicle in good condition, few scratches/dents due to normal wear as you would get with any normal vehicle.

3.5. Vehicle has a few scratches or dents visibly. The grade is usually given to a vehicle in average condition.

3. Various scratches or dents, some paint blemishes.

2. Badly corroded, non standard car or modified car

1. Inferior car or very heavily modified car.

RA or A1. Vehicle has been in a minor accident. It has been repaired to an acceptable standard.

R or A. A vehicle which has been in an accident where some parts have been repaired or replaced.

RightDrives Exterior standards are that we will not import anything below a 3.0 without corrections (In Japan or Canada). Any R grade vehicles will not even be considered.

Interior Condition:

A. As new condition. No faults.

B. Very clean condition poss. very slightly dirty.

C.Clean but with cigarette burn or dash lift.

D.Dirty interior wit odours, ripped or torn seats, etc
