Client Reviews

Here's some feedback I've received from existing customers. They say more than I could ...

"The car is absolutely mint - thank you so much.  I knew I was on to a really good thing when the owner of the compliance workshop rang and asked me if I was interested in selling the car, because a number of his customers (presumably mostly dealers) who'd seen it in the workshop were asking about it.  He was very impressed, and asked for your details, and I guess he sees a heap of cars. I've lost count of how many people I've raved to about you.  I call you 'my man in Japan'! The process was really speedy at this end.

"Kevin rang me once I had sent him an initial enquiry. After years of conducting employment interviews I believe I am pretty good at judging people and he got a tick. By using Kevin’s professional service, the entire process of sourcing and purchasing the right vehicle and having it transported from the auction house in Japan to my local vehicle certification centre was dead simple. The hardest part was waiting for the car to arrive. Fantastic car. Great price. Thanks Kevin Dobbs, I’ll be buying off you again! “
Kevin Higginson - Napier, New Zealand

"This was my first time importing a car and Kevin made the whole process a breeze, his in-depth knowledge of the importing process and professionalism is second to none. I was extremely happy with the BMW he selected and the condition was exactly how he explained in our email correspondence prior to auction, top notch. I have suggested this service to many friends and family and am currently looking for a second car with Kevin as he made the whole process so easy and I appreciated his honesty, and friendly manner"
Sam Austin - Queenstown, New Zealand

"Hi Kevin, I just wanted to let you know the Nissan Dualis has now arrived. It flew through all the checks that were required and Elaine and I could not be happier with our purchase. We cannot thank you enough for your assistance. The process was foreign to us however your knowledge and help made the whole process seamless. We will be recommending you to our friends and colleagues without a doubt. Feel free to use my name as a reference we are extremely satisfied customers.”  
Grant Smith - Napier, New Zealand

"Kevin has chosen a great car for us, this comes from his careful attention to detail and ensuring we purchased a top car at a great price. He was able to advise us on the best model/year of the car we were looking for and the features we were after, with great back-up photos. This gave us the confidence we were looking for when choosing a car remotely. Kevin explained in detail the process of purchasing, importing and compliance procedures, these were followed and went without a hitch. We now have a very good car thanks to Kevin's careful selection and a desire to do things well on our behalf."
Brendan Jackson - Palmerston North, New Zealand

"We would highly recommend Kevin to anyone looking to purchase a car for their time in Japan. He made the whole process so easy for us and sourced a car that ticked all the things we were looking for at a great price. When our time came to leave Japan we then needed to sell the car and Kevin completely looked after that process too. Thank you so much Kevin.
Kerri Rawlings & Andy Friend - Canberra, Australia

"Kevin Dobbs was referred to us by friends when we made the move from New Zealand to Japan. He made the process so easy and gave us a range of quality vehicles to choose from. Our purchase exceeded our expectation. It suited our requirements and came at a great price. 
We would not hesitate to recommend Kevin for the hassle free purchase of a quality vehicle at a great price." 

Mose & Brooke Tuiali'i - currently residing in Iwata, Japan

"Thanks for our lovely car Kevin, you came through with the perfect car for us. This was our first experience of importing a car and we were very impressed at how simple and painless it was. We told Kevin what we were looking for and how much we wanted to spend then he did the research and hard work. Kevin's knowledge of the importing and auction systems also impressed us. Right from the start he kept us up to date with emails and phone calls so at all times we knew exactly what was happening. We didn't know Kevin before this exercise, but have come to appreciate his integrity, professionalism and friendliness and highly recommend him to others wishing to purchase their dream car." 
Joyce & Ian Wilson - Winton, New Zealand

"I was referred to Kevin by a friend who had successfully imported two vehicles into New Zealand himself. As a beginner I found the process extremely simple and would certainly look to do it again. Once I placed an order Kevin sent me details of a car that fit my criteria and gave me a rough guage on price. After expressing interest he viewed the car personally and sent me roughly 10 inside and 10 outside photos of the vehicle. Kevin provided clear advice on the quality of the vehicle such as it was likely garaged as opposed to being left to the elements and general overall quality. Throughout Kevin gave me good advice and prior to the auction even called for extra comfort prior to bidding. On receiving the vehicle it was exactly as described with no nasty surprises whatsoever. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for something special or looking to save a little money. Thanks Kevin."
Tim Wilson - Auckland, New Zealand

"Having viewed TradeMe and had a good look for cars in New Zealand, we decided to see if we could source a higher quality car with a cheaper price from Japan. We weren't disappointed. We bought an Audi A3 Sportback with very low kilometres and it was in prestige condition. The equivalent in NZ would have costs us thousands more. We would have no hesitation in recommending Kevin at Tokyo Euro. His service was outstanding only scouring for the highest quality cars, providing personal inspections with frequent liasons updating us on future auctions including pictures along with results. The import process with customs clearance and compliance was very simple." 
Glen Marsh - Auckland, New Zealand


"Kevin, I greatly acknowledge the work you have done for me - it's very much appreciated. The condition of the cars are even better than the photos. Your service is excellent and makes the buying process most enjoyabe. I have no hesitation in recommending your name to other New Zealanders wanting to import a car from Japan" 
Brian Sampson - Napier, New Zealand

"I imported a Toyota Harrier to New Zealand through Kevin at Tokyo Euro and couldn't be happier ! The car is even better than we had hoped and the dealings through Kev were easy and helpful ! I would and will recommend this to all my friends looking at buying a car !."

Tim Bateman - Christchurch, New Zealand

"Hi Kevin. Thank you very much for everything you have done for me. The BMW is even better than my expectation from the pictures. It is like brand new!"
Julian Zheng - Napier, New Zealand

"Kevin was referred to us by a friend who highly recommended the service they were provided when importing to NZ. Other than being incredibly well communicated with during the process of finding the right car, we have been very impressed with the end product. Our mechanic stated that the car Kevin found was the best example of an Audi import he had seen. The motor and body condition was "as new" with no signs of oil leaks underneath. We will continue to use Kevin for all new car purchases we make." 
Alex Lemon - Christchurch, New Zealand

"Couldn't have been easier. I picked out a car I liked from photos provided and Kevin organised everything, even delivery from Tokyo to Fukuoka. I was in and out of Japan at the time too and the process ran as smoothly as I could have hoped for."
Shaun Webb - Fukuoka, Japan 

"When we approached Kevin about purchasing a vehicle it was a new experience for us as we had never bought through an auction wholesaler like this before. However his knowledge and expertise in the local market and ability to get us a car that suited our needs at a great price far exceeded our expectations. When we needed a second car it was easy to decide who to contact. I would recommend Tokyo Euro to anyone interested in buying a high quality vehicle at a great price - without the hassle !!!"
Reuben & Kate Thorne - Christchurch, New Zealand

"Kevin was recommended by a family friend. This must have subconsciously helped, but after speaking to him several times and photos back and forth I had no hesitation to purchase.He is one of the most professional people I have ever had to deal with in any circumstance. For me I don't like looking at cars, probably because would I even know (really) what it is mechanically I am looking at? Kevin is way more qualified than I am to check out a car. WHY, WHY, WHY, WOULD I WANT TO SPEND ANY OF MY FREE TIME LOOKING AT CARS ON CAR YARDS!! Kevin - the car angel did it all for me and even sent it over here. It was like having a Christmas present to open. You are in control of what you buy - it's like shopping online - ok it's a slightly bigger purchase than a toy or a sweater but the principle is the same. It's about trust and I trust him implicitly. WHAT A STAR! "
Chrissy Henderson - Auckland, New Zealand

"Thanks for the simple, effortless purchase of Jen's new car. You really exceeded our expectations in finding exactly the car we wanted, quickly, and at less than the cost you initially indicated. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family; in fact we already have! If you are looking for a quality car, to your spec, and at a better price than you find here in NZ then look no further than Tokyo Euro"
Steve & Jen Lancaster - Christchurch, New Zealand

"Thanks very much for finding the vehicle we wanted and also at the right price. The importation was straight forward and everything happened as you described to us. We have no hesitation in recommending you and we will be back for our next vehicle"
John Taylor - Lake Hawea, New Zealand

"After living in Tokyo, Japan and knowing Kevin personally, we decided to bring a car to New Zealand. The process was seamless. A great quality car at a wholesale rate. Why use the middle man! We are stoked! Arigato Tokyo Euro!"
Scott & Jane Robertson - Sumner, New Zealand
