Overview of the importing process

In this case, the customer wanted to import a van themselves. They asked me to go through the process with them, from start to finish. Learning about the IVA process saved them a lot of money.

I talked the customer through filling in the V55/5 form to register a vehicle imported from Japan.

Some more background to the ‘Japanese import advice’ service

I started Andrew’s Japanese Cars as a blog in 2012 and I’m really grateful to all my readers, followers and customers for their interest and engagement over the years. Long may it continue!

However, as a result of the growth in popularity of the website, I have had to change how I respond to questions. I used to answer every question received, but now I get many more questions than I have time to answer. If I did answer them all, there would be no time left for writing articles or buying cars.

Several readers of this website asked if they could pay me to give them advice specific to their situation. I said yes and that’s how this Japanese import advice service started.
