Why Toyota Corolla is so popular in the world

Toyota Corolla is the best sold vehicle in the world, it is more than fun to drive. It has a simple yet attractive style of its own that speaks for itself.  This car has little of something for everyone.  Toyota Corolla has been winning 5 stars for safety throughout the years. This vehicle is popular because of its simple design, affordable price, fuel efficiency, ample luggage space and its comfort. It is the best choice for office workers who drive cars from one point to another, taxi drivers, rent-a-car companies, but in particular for housewives due to its just-the-right-size.  It is often called a Chick Car.

Types of Toyota Corolla

There have been several models and styles introduced in Corolla over the years which has earned this vehicle a huge popularity all over the world.  It comes in sedan, hatchback, van, station wagon, 2wd and 4wd, and different fuels like diesel and petrol and now the hybrid. Some popular types of Corollas in the past and the present are Corolla II, Corolla Runx, Corolla Spacio, Corolla Rumion, Corolla Fielder, Corolla Van and Corolla Axio.  Toyota Corolla Axio remains the most wanted car in the world.

How to Import Toyota Corolla from Japan

There are many legitimate used car exporters in Japan but we suggest you deal with JUMVEA member companies for authentic deals and to avoid any unexpected surprises or a car fraud.  Once a JUMVEA member, you are rest assured that your money is in the safe hands.

Buying a Toyota Corolla is easy.  Your exporter will buy it directly from the used car auction or through a Toyota dealer who trades-in old cars when he sells a new car.  We suggest you should not buy a car previously owned by a leasing company or a rent a car company. Such cars not only have very high mileage but these cars are roughly used and most of the time have a dirty interior, nearly blown up engines and rust under the hood. 

Good thing is that Corolla cars are in abundance in auctions and your car exporter can choose the very best for you from the heaps available for sale.

Once the car has been purchased, it will require a pre-export inspection depending on the destination because some countries require the car to be inspected before shipping. For other countries shipping is not required. From this point, the car is delivered to the port with an invoice to the shipping agent, booking is done by the first available ship and car leaves for your destination in one week, two weeks or a bit longer, depending on how many ships sail to your destination.

Right Hand Drive Cars in Jamaica

Jamaica is an island country. It was a British colony before it got independence in 1962. Because it was an Overseas British Territory, people drive cars on the left side of the road just like people do in the United Kingdom. This means that most of the cars have steering wheels on the right side of the car, we call it right hand drive cars. Import of left hand drive cars is also allowed in the country, but it is difficult and unsafe to drive such cars.

Japanese Used Cars


Japan is also a right-hand drive country so it makes Japanese cars very popular in Jamaica. Another reason for the popularity of Japanese vehicles is their low cost, low fuel requirements, and long-lasting life. Japanese cars come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and buyers can choose the type that best suits their needs.

Demand of Used Cars in Jamaica

Jamaica is the 35th most densely populated country in the world. Public transportation is poor and consists of busses, minibuses and taxis. Transportation by buses is over crowded and not safe.  Taxis are expensive but still very popular because of the rise in tourism in the country.  Jamaican government took strict measures to severely punish crimes against tourists and this made Jamaica a safe place to visit. Tourism business is booming in Jamaica and this means more demand for buses, mini-coaches and cars from Japan. Economic conditions and standard of living is improving which means Jamaicans can afford to import their own cars from Japan. Road conditions have improved a lot and this enhanced the accessibility to far places, specially in the mountain areas, this means more need to import used cars.

Axio is a choice whether one drives locally inside the city or uses it for a long drive.

Toyota Probox

Probox Van is a 5 seater station wagon with extended space for luggage in the back. Its second row seats are foldable and this creates more space for luggage when extra space for goods is required.  This serves the purpose of a passenger car plus a commercial vehicle. It is popular among medium sized traders and shop owners to bring or deliver goods. It can also be used for rent-a-car or taxi purposes because tourists come to Jamaica with huge luggage and a Probox van can be the best choice for such tourists.

Japanese Used Car Imports to Jamaica

Situated in the Caribbean Sea, Jamaica is an island country. Kingston is the capital and the largest city. Jamaica is a right-hand drive country and people drive cars with steering wheels on the right side and they drive their cars on the left side of the road.

Japanese cars are very popular and Jamaica imports a considerable number of used vehicles from Japan. Cars must be inspected for quality before export. Import of used vehicles in the right hand drive are allowed as long as the cars are not more than 5 years old.

But some car dealers own special permits that allow them to import cars not exceeding 9 years.

From Japan to Jamaica, cars can be exported by Roll-on Roll-off, or via containers. The most preferred method is Ro Ro. Container vessels to Jamaica are available on the weekly basis. Ro Ro ships sail every 15 days. Most common destination is Kingston port but some prefer the Montego Freeport in Montego Bay.

Popular cars in Jamaica

Popular imports are Toyota Axio, Toyota Premio, Toyota Wish, Toyota Mark X, Toyota Probox, Honda CR-V, Mazda Demio, Nissan X-trail, and many more. Although many car exporters in Japan also deal in pre-damaged and repaired cars, it is advisable to deal in clean vehicles with no damage history, no rust, and perfect engine and mechanical condition. Pre-shipment Inspection for ro4 Jamaica is very strict and unless the car is not in mint condition, one ends up in huge costs in repair and re-inspection costs, not to mention the time loss.

Exporting used cars from Japan to Jamaica is easy if the exporter is familiar with all the export rules. Once the car is purchased from Auction, it is sent to the Inspection center for testing. A good quality car should have no problem in clearing the test. It takes less than 30 minutes to get the car inspected.

Japanese Used Car Imports to Turks & Caicos

There are two Island groups situated in the Northern Atlantic Ocean. One is called Turks and the other is Called Caicos Their largest source of income is tourism and these Islands have no significant railways so people largely depend on cars, vans and, buses as means of transportation.

Turks & Caicos are British Overseas Territory and just like the UK and Japan, people drive cars with right hand drive.  This makes Japanese cars highly desirable. Because of their durability, low price and low fuel costs, used Japanese cars have huge demand in the country.

Cars Import Age Limit

There is no restriction on bringing any age of vehicle to the country and one can import any year vehicle and there is no pre-export inspection required either.  Cars can be shipped by Containers from Japan to Turks & Caicos Islands. Container ships sail every week from Japan.  Cars can also be shipped by Ro-Ro and there are 2 to 3 ships available each month from Japan.  It takes 4 to 5 weeks for the ship to reach the country once it departs from Japanese port.

The main port is Providenciales but cars can also be shipped to Grand Truck and Cock Burn Harbor.

Used Japanese Cars for Turks & Caicos Islands

Toyota Hiace Van, Toyota Vits, Toyota Corolla Axio, Toyota Landcruiser Prado, Honda Fit are some of the most popular vehicles in Caicos & Turks Islands.

As mentioned previously, there is no pre-shipment inspection required for vehicles exported to Turks & Caicos therefore it is very important to ensure one deals with quality car exporters from Japan. It’s a pity many exporters would send the seized engine cars, or vehicles with rust or other mechanical problems. This will be a huge loss to the importer. It is necessary to choose the right exporter in Japan who physically inspect the vehicle before purchasing for export. Depending on the year of the vehicle, sometimes the repair costs can exceed the car buying cost. We suggest no previous collision cars with no rust and low mileage to ensure they last long after one imports it to Turks & Caicos.
