Many firms have become members and participate in our auto auctions thanks to the vast number of vehicle consignments we have, and the huge amount of information we provide. These strengths were realized by combining our abundant know-how about on-site auctions with the latest digital technology. Our strength is fully expressed by three keywords: "SPEED," "POWER" and "NETWORK."
Strictly checked without compromise by professionals
We assess the vehicles put up for auction and give them a score on our 10-grade scoring system, using our original, strict inspection system.
Information about the vehicles put up for auction is made into databases to allow information to be searched in real time.
* Information is provided through the "CIS Information Service" Internet information service for members.
More than 50,000 vehicles on average are put up for auction every week. It only takes about 20 seconds to complete a contract on a vehicle after the vehicle is put to the hammer.
Once contracts have been completed, the various procedures that need to be followed are taken very quickly.
Vehicles are transported to any location in the country using USS's logistics service.
Number of vehicle consignments: about 2.19 million; number of completedcontracts: 1.40 million (both figures are for fiscal year ended March 2013)
