Not long ago, US Customs and Border Protection agents raided a local Japanese automobile import and parts shop. They seized a bunch of laptops and documents after authorities became aware of a 1996 Nissan Skyline concealed within a shipping tote headed for the dealer. That particular automobile is banned under the US import laws and really shouldn’t be for sale. An arrest affidavit stated that in 1 month alone, this store shipped nearly numerous transmissions, several cars which are not allowed into the US, and that the shop understated the value of the shipment by over a hundred thousand dollars. What makes this case uncorrect is that although the shop was conducting illegal activities, consumers can undoubtedly go online and find a shop in the US willing to sell a range of vehicles banned under the import law. Shoppers can also cross the border in Canada and bring an illegal automobile back. Many shops follow questionable importing sales strategies that mislead consumers. The cars are imported from Japan are normally disassembled, shipped over to this country and reassembled, which isn’t exactly legal. This is the way it’s been done for several years, but it can set uneducated clients up for immense issues, expense and disappointment. Sometimes these high-end imports get seized from the new owners and crushed. The situation harms legal importers and the whole import community. There is a lot of confusion and people become fearful and reluctant to tackle the import process. Legitimate import companies need to explain to clients that there are certain cars that cannot be brought into the country. While late 1990s and early 2000s Skylines are a popular item on the wishlist, they are no eligible for import until they are a minimum of 25 years old.
