When considering importing a car from Japan one of the most important aspects is shipping and the most cost-effective way with as minimal damage as possible.

RorRo shipping requires that the car be driven into the ship and tied down for the duration of its journey.

In our opinion, RoRo is the safest way to export your cars from Japan.

Container shipping requires the vehicle to be placed inside a container often with another car and will be secured in place with steel wires and wood.

Occasionally damage will occur when using containerised shipping which mostly happens in the port of arrival. Containers are our least favorite form of shipping your car

Any car with an oil leak that is wet to touch or dripping on the ground should be fixed. It may be as simple as an untight oil filter. If you see an oil leak thats covered in grime and dust it maybe good to simply leave it be if its not leaking. 

It is all a matter of common sense and economics mostly.
