NOTE: If you’ve lost your original document then a replacement Export Certificate can be supplied by JCHC (Japan Car History Check).
Prestige Motorsport was founded in 1999 to help other enthusiasts like us avoid poor quality and falsified imports.
As such we are very much against odometer tampering on Japanese vehicles and are committed to ensuring that as a valued client, you fully understand what you’re buying and you get what you pay for.
Our specialty is sourcing vehicles in very nice condition and with genuine low kms. This is what our reputation is built on.
Prestige Motorsport strongly supports services such as Japan Car History Check and others that protect the consumer by providing independent background information and Japanese odometer check reports on vehicles imported from Japan.
For your peace of mind (and resale value) we provide the independent auction information prior to auction and then the original JAPANESE EXPORT CERTIFICATE for every vehicle sourced, all as part of our service.
While it has become popular to promote this recently with some well-known Sydney car dealers being caught for winding back kms on Japanese imports, we have always provided this document to our clients since Japan implemented the Export Certificate system in 2004.
This official document is produced from the de-registration paper by Japanese Customs at the time of export and shows the kms at the last two registration inspections by the Japanese Transport Authority, together with the date.
This provides odometer records for up to 7 years for some cars, but for most about 5 years.
