Auction Guidance

Auction grade is the overall assessment of a car given by the Japanese car auction house’s inspectors. There are currently over 115 auction house locations that test and provide the auction grades base on the general condition of the car or vehicle. Though different houses have various methods of determining each grade; the systems are likely similar and giving the almost same result.

The grades are usually showed as numbers or letters for the overall grade based on the visible and mechanical condition. Some auctions use Letter –A, B, C, D or E to describe the exterior and/or interior condition of the car, in addition to the overall grade, where A > B > C > D > E.
