Car Auction Tsukuba
If you are thinking about buying a new car, you might want to consider asking a dealer to attend a car auction on your behalf. Car auctions happen every day of the week except Sunday all over the country. They are only open to dealers, but local used car dealers may agree to attend the auction on your behalf if you give them specific guidelines of what you are looking for and how much you are willing to pay.
The closest car auction to Tsukuba is called “Car Auction Tsukuba” (CAT) and it is held in Tsuchiura (Nakamura Nishine 1111) on Fridays. (It’s quite common for events and sites in places around Tsukuba (but not actually in Tsukuba) to use the Tsukuba name, I guess because it is well-known and has good associations.)
I have never bought a car this way, so I can’t offer any advice. I wonder if any Tsukuba residents might be able to tell us about their experiences?
