Can you trust your online used car dealer?

Don’t settle for poor service from unscrupulous used car dealers. Even though there are plenty of fraudulent dealers on the net, there are a few used car dealers with proven track records.One such car dealer site I suggest is I have compiled a few of the important points they offer. Give them a try; hopefully, it will shorten your search for the one you can trust.

The company offers the widest selection of Japanese used cars to customers in America, Africa, Middle East, Europe, and Asia. Whether you’re a local buyer or from far-off, IBC Japan can reach you through its regional distribution centers located in Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, South America, Africa, and Florida. All used vehicles are sourced directly from Japan, so whatever you are looking for - be it sedans, trucks, sports cars, or SUVs - you get access to lots of choices, all with complete details. Free membership sign up allows you to access vehicles from various sources - stocks from IBC Japan Inventory, stocks held in Japan auctions, or IBC Japan’s own online auctions. You can even specify the vehicle you want and IBC will find it for you. IBC Japan has pool of Customer Service Representatives to answer your inquiries 24/7 via email, IBC Chat, Skype, or phone. They have comprehensive vehicle appraisals. All cars pass stringent vehicle checks and inspections, and are graded for your guidance.

While the Internet makes searches for used car dealers easy and convenient, the unrestrained emergence of fraud teaches us to take better precautions. It is wise to be vigilant in choosing only those with proven track records. Going through dealer’s vehicle appraisal systems and terms of trade, reading reviews and feedbacks are just some of the ways to scrutinize a dealer’s reliability. So choose carefully.

Guide to buying used Japanese vehicles

If you have chosen to purchase a Japanese used vehicle from a Japanese used vehicle importer, distributor, or exporter, you have already made an intelligent move. You will be able to obtain a vehicle that is almost as good as new, sans the depreciation that affects new car buyers as soon as they pay for the car. Japanese used vehicles — even those that are only one year old -- are 20 to 30 percent cheaper than new cars. But there are other good reasons to buy a used Japanese vehicle:

1. Buying a used vehicle gives you luxury so you can afford a model which is “loaded” or has more accessories.

2. Some used vehicles bought already include insurance.

3. Bigger bargains are possible for the smart shopper.

The reasons to avoid used vehicles — lack of reliability and the expense of repairs —are not issues anymore. Consider these advantages:

1. Japanese used vehicles are the most reliable compared to other makes.

2. Some Japanese used vehicles that are bought from Japanese used car exporters are still under the factory warranty.

3. Most new vehicle makers now sell certified used cars, which include warranties.

4. The history of a Japanese used vehicle can easily be traced.

merrying this holiday season

Its 25 days more before christmas. And exactly a week before that will be my Dadi's 1st death anniversary. When I lost him, that was the saddest thing ever happened to me - I know I'm not that close to him but he is so dear to me. Even if we fight most of the time when he was still with us - i love my dadi. This will be our second christmas without him. Geezz - i still haven't able to move on, i guess we all are - i mean once you lost someone so dearly, the pain remains. And learn to live without the person around.

Haayyyyyyyy, I will try to make it merry this time around as i still have my mum. i have big plans for the holidays and for my dad's death anniversary.

Hope God will grant my wishes!

Despiteful you

There's no way that you can please everybody. I've long accepted that,I don't get berserk or throw a fit every time I learned that people talk about me. Rumors will always be the preferred side dish among circles, for others it's even the main dish. One way or another people will always talk about other people. That's human nature and can still be classified as normal. But when do you draw the line? There are people who would cook up stories to indulge themselves. I don't have the license to say that they are mentally challenged but what type of person who would go at length spreading fabricatedstories. Surely, not someone whose sanity is balanced and stable.

What’s the objective? To solicit unwavering alliances; or simply mask her bruised pride and rationalize her shame. Someone will always leave somebody. It's inevitable. It's always painful. You can never hide the pain but you can always choose how to act on your emotion. You can move on gracefully or you can be the perfect face of pathetic or downright laughable. I've long been a victim of her nasty mouth. But I chose to let it pass for I don't make it my business to give anybody the satisfaction of getting the best of me. I also have my limitation. I get fed up.

Everytime I heard rumors that she had been stitching about me, my nerves tremble with anger. But there's nothing I could do about it. I couldn't make her stop; I couldn't take back what she said. I wouldn't go around telling people it was all made up, created by her deranged mind. Her illusions took over reality. Just thinking about it gives me cold creeps. I admit I also lie but fear always coats my heart. Fear of disappointing God. How can she make up strange stories without the fear of condemnation or even the slightest fear of being caught for her pathetic lies?

Rumors travel faster than the speed of light, but it came to me in installment. It may be old news, but I reached the corner of extreme annoyance. Her stories range from a simple lie to a destructive fabricated stories. Simple classified as-- I had been sending her messages.I don't want to be misquoted. We both knew what transpired, who texted who and who initiated the contact. Destructive--like your outrageous rumor about me being miserable. That was disgusting and too low. This one time, I can get low for you.

I never even doubted when you extended your friendship, later on I found out you were talking about me behind my back. I did things for you because I thought I owed it to you. You know what you asked me to do. I should've known where you were coming from. It was too late when I realized you were using me. And as always you twisted the facts. let it appear you were the victim. Did I ever open my mouth lashing you? I kept my mum. I let it go. Don't you feel ashamed of yourself for the things you were saying defaming me towards your good friends?

There were instance that you're so good to me but from the day i found out you're backstabing me again. I was disgusted with your wickedness. I hate you more for that. You unintentionally revealed your character, how rotten you are inside. You are so sick in the head. I was half in tears writing this because of anger with intense passion. I thought this over, multiple times, I debated whether to post this or not. This is not done on impulse. For my peace of mind I am posting this. You had this coming. You asked for this.

Years worth of your lies I'm summing my hatred and anger here. For years I've been praying for the anger that held a portion in my heart. That eventually I can reach forgiveness but I never got there yet. I'm not a coward to hide under faceless aliases. I can get my message across without using the traditional grapevine or creating a bogus face. You know who you are and there's no doubt this is for you. This will be my first and last entry about you, scheming $#@%*. I know it'll get to you.

I'm not writing this to erase other people's perception of me, the image you created for me, I'm writing this to let you know that we knew how spiteful you are. That's something you should really be ashamed of. You and I knows the TRUTH. And you can never escape from that.

The greatest proof of love is obedience. God I love you but it’s so hard loving our enemies.

Backbiting/stabbing is fleeting but character assassination is another thing.


Character assassination is an intentional attempt to influence the portrayal or reputation of a particular person, whether living or a historical personage, in such a way as to cause others to develop an extremely negative, unethical or unappealing perception of him or her. By its nature, it involves deliberate exaggeration or manipulation of facts to present an untrue picture of the targeted person.

Things to look out for when buying a used car

Usually when selecting for a used car, “essential factors” should be looked at first to ensure that you’re really buying your money’s worth.

1. Watch out for that lemon- Probably the danger in buying used cars is when you don’t know much about the history of repairs and cranks of the vehicle you got, without proper vehicle inspection, probably you’ll end up stuck on the road and spending hundreds or perhaps thousands of dollars on repairs. If you bought a lemon, your car’s better off at a local junkyard.

2. Odometer Readings – Be on the lookout for Odometer tampering. Perhaps you might like a car based on odometer reading, as you thought that the lower its reading, the better the chances that you’re getting a good car.

3. Vehicle Ownership history- This one has got to be the worst. Suppose you got a car that you thought was good and you drive it, then suddenly you get pulled over and cuffed by the cops, then too late, you found out that the vehicle you’re driving is a “hot car” or stolen one! It’s much better that before you buy the car of your choice, you should be acquainted with its qualities in or out. That way you’ll have worry- free driving!

4. Purchase only from reliable dealers- Perhaps the best part of them all, is buying your car from a reliable dealer. You see, a good dealer will always see to it that the best service is given as possible according to the satisfaction of his customer in order to protect his name and reputation.

With a whole field of dealers to choose from nowadays, seeing this part thru may come as quite a burden; but with used car dealers like you can worry no more as their vehicles has passed the most stringent of inspection services plus more to make sure that you’re getting your money’s worth and to your satisfaction.

:: xmas season ::

Yesterday in the office (11/26 -- i made the draft 11/23), we launched the christmas season by decorating each department corner - titled "Deck Thy Halls". Each departments are tasked to decorate and @ 530 pm the initial judging started.

My team decided our corner to have a indiginous xmas tree. So last week, I gathered some of the materials (ginit - bamboo leaves - unused papers & ribbons -- unused xmas wrappers) - we used for our xmas tree. See image on the left side for the unfinished tree we made.

It was fun putting all together our decors. Oh! by the way, we also individually accessorized our pc with accents. Hope we'll win the first prize.

my 2am madness

It's been almost 3 months that exactly 2AM i usually woke up for no reason at all. Last year, for several months before my dad passed away, it used to be 3AM - i know it sounds so weird but it's true. Upon waking up I directly looked in this certain area in our house coz i let my door wide open when sleeping - i don't know why but all i know someone is looking at me while i'm sleeping. Last night, again i woke up. Had goosebumps where i don't usually felt it from my previous experiences, so i got up then before i went down to get some water - again for quite sometime i kept staring on that certain area. I'm quite bothered of what happened last night. Huh!! i really don't know what's in there, im hoping i can see it soon, hoping it will be my dad. *sigh*

The AutoTerminal Experience

Buying used vehicles straight from Japan has become the best and most logical choice for someone aiming to own a pre-owned car that still looks, feels, and drives nicely. Japanese used cars have relatively low mileages and are free of abuse as a result of, among others, the country’s stringent speed limits and well-maintained roads and highways. Thrown in the usual standard equipment features, such as power steering, electric windows and retractable mirrors, climate control, ABS and airbags and you’ll get the general idea.

Today, it’s so easy to look for quality Japanese used cars as there are so many available in the market. However, it may still be a risky and intimidating process considering the unbridled proliferation of fraud, but with laws regarding the buying and selling of used cars you know that you’re making a very wise choice anyway.

And with such an insanely wide selection of Japanese used cars that are available customers don’t have to stick to one or two makes or models, they really can have their pick of quality used vehicles and know that they are paying the right price for the right car. I guess the only important decision customers have to make is to choose which used car dealer to go for out of a choice of literally tens of thousands available across Japan.

And that’s where the experience comes into play. is the regional sales, service and distribution center for IBC Japan, a provider of quality Japanese used vehicles all over the world since 1988, is one of Japan's leading and largest vehicle exporters. Below are just some of the cool features that separate from other competitors on the market:

  • Customers can sign-up for an account, without any membership fees, to browse and IBC Japan’s massive inventory and search for specific makes, models, price ranges and other distinctive criteria to suit their taste, style, and budget. Quality Japanese used cars (Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Honda, Isuzu, Daihatsu, Subaru) and all original direct-sourced European and US car makes, are available from inventory.

  • All vehicles included in the and IBC Japan inventory have undergone full ownership history checks that are confirmed through suppliers and the official Land Transportation databases in Japan.

  • allows customers anywhere in the world to participate in online auctions held in Japan and bid daily for quality used vehicles at competitively low prices. Since participates weekly in more than 150 auctions throughout Japan, customers can be sure to avail of the best deals available.

  • With distribution centers located in the Americas, South America, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, and Africa, takes company accessibility to the next level. Customers are now able to visit an AutoTerminal branch near their area and check out the various makes and models available on display, without having to worry about shipping. Obviously, customers get the vehicle they ordered a lot faster than when ordering it directly from IBC Japan. caps it all off with an excellent in-house 24/7 customer support service that is readily accessible through email, phone chat, and, yes, even Skype. Visit immediately to experience why it’s the best, if not only, place to satisfy your quality Japanese used car needs.
