Purchasing cars from South Korea: choose Auction Auto as your broker
South Korean cars are well-known worldwide mainly due to such giants as Hyundai and KIA. Renault Samsung and SsangYong are popular automakers too. Less than 10 years ago, Hyundai Motor Group also launched the production of a luxury vehicle division — Genesis. It was considered a very dependable car, along with other Korean brands.
If you dream of buying a car from one of the previously mentioned brands, pay attention to the Korean used car marketplaces or auctions. You can buy a repaired car in good condition for a reasonable price there. In addition, there is an opportunity to buy a vehicle produced specially for the South Korean market by other world-famous brands, for example, BMW, Volkswagen, Nissan, Honda, and many others. It is possible to find a car with a comparatively identical condition, mileage, damages, and other technical characteristics for a lower price in South Korea than in Europe.
South Korean auctions and marketplaces: where to buy a car from Korea?
The two main platforms we are working with are Encar and Lotte. Let’s take a closer look at each of them.
Encar is a trading platform where people can buy used vehicles. There are thousands of vehicles from leading automakers in Korea presented online. Cars from Encar are usually in good condition, even if they had some damage in the past. The description of each vehicle is presented on the Encar website.
Lotte is a closed auction that works mostly for the South Korean domestic market. It is not very popular among bidders worldwide because it is hard to join it. Auction Auto has access to this auction and can offer some good deals from this bidding platform.
We also have access to the Autowini wholesale marketplace. If you are interested in a car from there, we can help you to purchase it. However, we need to mention that vehicles from Autowini are usually in worse condition than those from the marketplaces we described above. Customers and brokers must be beyond careful in their car choice and inspection from Autowini not to buy a “lemon”.
