About USS Auto Auction

Steps in a USS Auto Auction

USS Auto Auctions are held everyday (excluding Sunday) nationwide. Our Auction Site Locations bustle with many buyers looking for used vehicles.
The various formalities that need to be taken by new owners who have snapped up vehicles are completed within a week of the auction ending.

By the day before the auction

Vehicles to be sold are stored at the auction site stockyard.

  • Vehicle storage

    Vehicles to be auctioned should be transported to USS Auction Site Locations by the morning of the day before the auction. Vehicles are accepted around the clock, in principle.

  • Inspection

    USS inspectors impartially grade vehicles in line with our 10-grade evaluation standards.

  • Vehicle registration

    Vehicle photographs and inspection results are placed in a database.

  • Storage/preliminary search

    Information about vehicles to be sold can be viewed using a USS satellite TV terminal or an Internet link.

  • Entry

    Members use their USS ID cards to check in at an auction site.

  • Preliminary search

    To search for the vehicles they have in mind, members can access our database using the information terminals installed in the Auction Site Locations.

  • Preliminary inspection

    Auction participants inspect vehicles to be sold in order to prevent problems after a purchase. Satellite TV and Internet auction participants can ask USS to perform a preliminary inspection for them.

  • Auction/bidding

    Four to 10 vehicles are auctioned simultaneously. Each vehicle is sold in about 20 seconds. Bids can be submitted directly or from another location by using satellite TV or the Internet.

  • Price adjustment

    Members can adjust the starting prices and bidding prices for vehicles they put up for auction, while taking in the atmosphere of the auctions held that day.

Four days after the auction

    We successively follow various procedures to take sold vehicles out of storage.

One week after the auction
  • Payment

    USS receives the payment plus a successful bid fee from the buyer and, after deducting the consignment and contract completion fee, passes on the payment to the seller.

  • Documentation

    The seller gives USS an automobile inspection certificate, an ownership transfer certificate and a certificate of their seal impression, and USS then hands over these documents to the buyer after confirming that the buyer has paid the amount of the successful bid.
