Frequntly Asked Questions
Please read through the E.A.S. knowldege base.
HOW MANY KILOMETERS HAVE YOUR USED ENGINES & GEARBOXES DONE?
Unless otherwise specified the exact kilometers cannot be quoted on any imported used engine and gearbox. Our dedicated team of buyers travel the world in search of the best quality lowest kilometers vehicles before having the engines removed. During this process it is noted that most vehicles have between 50 000km’s and 100 000km’s on the odometer. Therefore, our accepted average kilometers per engine is approximately 75 000km’s although some will have done less.
ARE ALL VEHICLES IN JAPAN SCRAPPED AFTER A SPECIFIC AMOUNT OF MILEAGE?
No, the scrapping of vehicles is not forced upon owners. However, Japan did introduce a scrappage program in 2009 to promote the replacement of old vehicles with modern vehicles by way of rebates on new vehicles. Scrappage programs generally have the dual aim of stimulating the automobile industry and removing inefficient, high emissions vehicles from the road.
