The Road Legal Right Hand Drive Vehicle or RLRHD for short, are vehicles that are old enough to be exempt from EPA and Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. These vehicles are legal to drive wherever motor vehicles are permitted. They still have standard safety belts, head-rests, reinforced doors, DOT safety glass, and roll-over protection, but they do not have over 100 sensors that are required on new vehicles.
RLRHD vehicles are sold with a Michigan title, invoice and odometer certification statement along with the purchase agreement that shows all of the features of your vehicle. If you live in a state that does not have a sales tax we will not charge you for it.
Sales taxes can be confusing, but I will tell you, you will only pay tax if your state assesses one and you will not pay a penny more than whatever your state assesses for the sales tax. If you pay any part to the State of Michigan it becomes a credit that you use to offset dollar for dollar any amount owed in your state.
Yes, we allow the same credit against your sales tax due as your home state. You pay or don’t pay whatever sales tax is in effect in your home state.
We inspect everything from the top to the bottom starting from when we buy it. Any used vehicle purchased from us will be freshly serviced with new oil and filter, air filter, brakes if they are 1/3 worn, tires same, belts hoses, plugs, we make sure you do not have to do anything to a vehicle you purchase from us. If something comes up that we miss, please call us and let us know.

We ship any vehicle to your dock or door for $494. Alaska and Hawaii are a bit more.
Absolutely, we will pick you up at the Detroit Metro Airport and drive you to our place about one hour away. Please let us know what time to be there so you are not waiting long.
Well, we look at about 150 to 200 cars for every one car we buy, so we are fairly picky. In Japan the roads are all in good condition, but driving a car is expensive. Highways have electronic tolls and just parking is expensive so you find some families need a car for crucial moments of their week, and other times they use the trains to get where they are going. This means there are a few cars that are used regularly but rarely.
The train and train system in Japan is really amazing. The track ties are cement so they do not need to be replaced and the tracks are welded together so you do not hear a clack-it-tee-clack as the wheels move over the seam. They are almost always on time, quiet and air conditioned.
The cars found in the families that use them every once in a while are in exceptional shape. We find cars 25 years old without a spot of rust. This means they can be used easily another ten years.
No trouble at all, we stock most parts, but if we do not have it in stock then it is only 10-14 days away.
One of the largest advantages is the driver’s door opens to the sidewalk side of the road. You will not have to get out or get back into the vehicle through traffic. If you have ever delivered mail you can appreciate having a vehicle that is a factory Right Hand Drive vehicle. These RLRHD vehicles are also equipped with standard comfort features such as AC and heat. When you get it from us any necessary service has already been done and all you do is put it to work. All of our right hand drive vehicles are factory right hand drive.
Factory right hand drive means the vehicle was manufactured with the steering wheel on the right hand side. It is not a right hand drive unit that uses a conversion process with belts and pulleys and other added levers. It is exactly the same as a standard left hand side unit except the steering wheel is on the right side.
Like anything, it depends on whether you are pitching or catching. You can buy from any number of people who import to the US. That is the easy part. The hardest part is, if they miss something before it gets to you. Do you have any recourse against someone that is thousands of miles away? Or on the flip side of that, why would they work hard to keep you as a customer when you are going to buy one car every ten years. Typically, once your transaction is processed, you are pretty much done. I have met many good people from faraway places and I have also met a few criminals. The criminals don’t tell you upfront they are going to stiff you on your shipment, they wait until you figure it out yourself. Usually you do not meet the person who is handling your transaction and many times you do not even speak to them. Your communication may simply be a series of Emails that concludes with you getting or not getting what you paid for.
I would say there are a million ways to lose the profit we add to our products when you decide to do it yourself. For example, you can lose it by paying too much for the product. I used to think, before I became an auto dealer, that there is no way you could pay too much for the product because you are bidding against another dealer that certainly will not pay too much. Now I know some dealers reading this are already laughing and chuckling to themselves. The reality is, you may be bidding on the car that is owned by the dealer bidding against you. He may be buried in the product and if you do not know what to pay, you will pay too much. If your bidding is done in person, you will find the other dealers can sniff out a new guy from a mile away and will spare no expense to teach you a lesson on how to buy.
You can lose our profit markup by buying a product that is not a good product. Easily this is the most common way to step on your . . . . toe. Actually, it is the worse way too. If you get a good product and you pay too much, you still have a good product. If you pay too much and you do not end up with a good product you get a double whammy and you have nowhere to go with the product. No one wants a bad product, you will be lucky to give it to someone.
Another way some people fail to see the forest for the trees. They may spend countless unpaid hours researching and become very confident in their results and all the while they do not realize the internet gives them plenty of information, but no knowledge.
They are not governed for speed so the standard automobiles will travel as fast as you dare.
Most people considering a right hand drive vehicle are choosing one because they have some sort of delivery or repair service. Perhaps they deliver mail, which is impossible to do as easily in a left-hand-drive vehicle. They may do parking enforcement or read water or utility meters, or deliver newspapers.
People also buy RHD vehicles because often they can get a lower price and accumulated mileage for the same type vehicle. They also know once you have driven a right hand drive vehicle for a few weeks you really don’t think of being on the wrong side, but rather on the right side.
