Parallel Importer Singapore
As a parallel importer in Singapore, we import cars and other vehicles directly from the country they’re from. After all, when you think about it, a parallel importer is nothing more than a reseller, similar to the authorised dealers like Kah Motor or Borneo Motors. We bring in the vehicles from the same source, whether it is from a factory in Japan, Korea, or Europe.
That being said, there are smaller parallel importer companies in Singapore that buy their cars from other bigger companies. Making them a reseller of a reseller. This is usually because they lack the capital to order the vehicles directly themselves. Because for certain countries, when it comes to parallel import cars, there is a requirement on the car dealer’s part to commit to a bulk order, imposing a greater financial strain on the smaller dealers.
The issue? These companies may choose to take extreme actions or riskier choices just to close the sale.
At Vins Automotive Group (VAuG), we focus on providing you with a long term solution as our goal is to grow with our clients. And it is to this extent that we continue to provide our clients with a wide range of automotive solutions, effectively making us a one-stop solution provider for all your car needs.
Why Our Clients Trust Us To Always Be Reputable & Reliable
At VAuG, we import our vehicles directly from Japan and we can prove to our clients that at any one point of time, we have at least 100 vehicles in our pre-order list. This puts us in a similar position as the Authorised Dealers as we can deliver your car in just a few weeks once it passes inspection.
And because of our greater economy of scale, you’re likely to get a much more competitive price for the car of your choice.
Over and beyond that, because we also have our own in-house car workshop, you’ll be getting your parallel import warranty directly from us. This gives our clients the assurance that we’re here to stay for the long run. The relationship we have with our clients goes over and beyond from just receiving your car but with every servicing and maintenance that you complete with us.
Our Parallel Import Assurance
Whenever a car dealer in Singapore imports a vehicle, they will receive a few critical details about the car. To first time buyers, this may not seem important, but we recommend you to challenge your parallel importer to produce the chassis and engine numbers of the car you’re buying. In fact, ask them to show you proof of shipment of the vehicle while you’re at it.
It may not seem like much, but it does give you a greater peace of mind when buying a new car, as you know where your car is.
After all, whenever we import a vehicle, we receive a Surrendered Bill of Lading that tells us the day of arrival of the vehicle our clients ordered. Our clients will have the assurance their car is on its way and they know exactly what to expect.
Smaller parallel importers unfortunately tend to buy their cars off a third party and will never have on hand access to this information. Worse, because they are competing with other parallel importers to buy the exact same car, there’s no guarantee they would get it first.
This puts your purchase at that parallel importer at a greater risk as it could get delayed or you might even lose your deposit if they’re forced to fold.
