In New Zealand the majority of imports come from Japan whom are the source for 92.3% of used car imports. The total number of used car imported from Japan in September 16 summed up to 11,026. While being evenly impressive this however, is a decrease from August’s figures of 13,260.

"Sometimes it can be difficult to get an import from Japan that is good quality inside and out" admits Alan Cushion from AC Auto Imports in Hamilton.

Australia is seen as the second favoured source of used car imports to New Zealand as they take accountability for 450 used car imports in September increasing from 438 in August.

Great Britain are in 3rd exporting 221 units, a massive increase of 135 vehicles from last month 94. The latest September figures however, is certainly more impressive as it is an increase of sizeable 240 percent since September 15. This gives a clear indication of the quality of cars in the UK therefore, maintaining a gradually increasing demand.

"The key to importing vehicles in good conditions is to have an agent you can trust" states Cushion.
