USS is pushing forward with the revitalization of the used vehicle distribution market, with its auto auction business as the core.

Business Domains

Auction business

USS smoothly distributes used vehicles by running used vehicle auctions.
It holds the mainstay on-site auctions at 17 Auction Site Locations across the country, satellite auctions and Internet auctions. Our membership stood at 47,111 firms at the end of March 2017. With a market share of over 30% (Results January - December 2016 : 32.5%) in the used vehicle auction industry, USS is Japan's largest auto auction company.

Used vehicle purchasing and selling business

With auto auctions, it is important to win the confidence of the members by boosting both the number of vehicle consignments and the number of completed contracts.
Auto auctions only become lively when people who want to buy or sell cars can get together with many people who are looking for vehicles to buy.
To secure as many high-quality used vehicles as possible, USS operates "Rabbit," a used car purchasing chain unique to the USS Group that has bases all over the country.

Recycling business

Before to the enforcement of the Vehicle Recycling Law, USS set up Auction Site Locations dedicated to reusable vehicles, which handle older-model/high mileage vehicles.
Vehicles sold at such Auction Site Locations are utilized in various ways, both at home and abroad. USS also scraps unsold vehicles at the request of their owners to recycle them as rebuilt auto parts, raw materials or solid fuel.
