Pre-shipping requirements

Before a vehicle can be exported out of Japan for Tanzania, the vehicle must undergo a JAAI test and pass it. After putting many hundreds of vehicles through this test, Provide Cars has a good understanding of vehicles from the auctions that will pass this test, saving you money.
