Why you should import with East Africa Motors

Below are the some of the advantages of importing your vehicle via East Africa Motors Ltd

End to end process

We handle import process end to end i.e. from sourcing of vehicle in Japan and the UK auctions, shipping, clearance in Mombasa and transport of vehicle from Mombasa to Nairobi.

Flexible payments

Payments are made in 4 instalments spread over the 45 days import period. You make the last payment after you have received vehicle in Nairobi and confirmed that it is as ordered.

Mombasa storage facilities

Your vehicle will be received at Mitchell Cotts storage facility in Mombasa (MT2 CFS). This facility is inside the port and just about 300 metres from where the ships offload the vehicles. The facility has a shed and 24 hours CCTV surveillance hence you vehicle is very safe. Most importantly, we have an arrangement with MT2 for 45 days of free storage just in case you need more time to make arrangements for import duty payment.

Genuine vehicle condition ratings

We only recommend importation of vehicles rated as condition 4 upwards and will share the vehicle’s auction sheet with you. An auction sheet is a document filled by a vehicle inspector as they inspect a car in a Japanese auction. The document objectively describes in detail the condition of the car, its options, accessories, odometer reading and any defects.

Low prices

We source our vehicles by participating directly in Japanese car auctions hence you are assured of low prices as compared to sourcing of the same vehicles via Japanese car dealers / websites. With this good pricing, you will be able to resell your vehicle after several years without making a loss (Many of our clients are actually able to resell their vehicles at a profit).

Proven track record

We have more than 10 years of experience in import of vehicles from Japan and the U.K. We have very reliable sourcing networks in both countries. Most of our sales are via referrals from previous clients and we will be glad to share contacts of our clients who you might know so that they give you feedback about our services.
