About Daunt

daunt's photo

I've been living in Japan for the past 12 years, and for the majority of that, I've been deeply involved with cars as a dealer, exporter, and detailer.

I was very lucky to be able to focus on the aspects of the business that I enjoy, particularly purchasing and detailing. I am far from a salesman, I just make sure that I only buy cars that I would love myself.

In recent years, I've been dividing my time between Japan and Canada, and now I'm back in my native St. John's, and have brought along my detailing skills and passion for improving cars. If you have a car that you'd love to have cleaned up, but don't have the time to do it, by all means, I'd love to take a look at it and give you an idea of what I can do.

About the auctions


Are you hoping to find your special car through an auction in Japan? This may decrease the cost, but more importantly, if you have a pro doing the search for you, it should get you a much better car for your investment, too.

With almost 60 years combined experience, we've bought literally thousands of cars over our careers. We have a small selection of them on display, if you'd like to take a look at some examples.

We are really interested in working with clients who are searching for excellent cars, as our respective experiences in this business have taught us that the best units are always a much better value than the least expensive ones. To do this, we look at literally thousands of cars per week and make sure that only ones that anyone on our team would be happy to personally own are chosen.

If you let us know what you're looking for, we'll be happy to give you a realistic ballpark figure for a very good to excellent example. You might be surprised at what your budget can get!
