20 Years of Exotic Imports

About CARizma

Carizma has for over 20 years been helping customers source and import quality cars safely, cheaply, and with a huge variety to choose from. To date Carizma  has brought in well in excess of 2,000 vehicles for customers located all over Australia. The majority of our business comes through word of mouth – friends of previous customers, or simply happy returning customers when they are ready to buy another vehicle.

Carizma’s History

Carizma was established in 1995 by owner/operator Jon Meertens to cover a niche market – at the time Japanese Cars were relatively new to the Aussie market and not many dealers in Australia were specialising in these vehicles.

Jon lived in Japan for over 4 years working for one of Japan’s largest used vehicle exporters where he learned how to read, write and speak Japanese while exporting Japanese vehicles all over the world.

This unique insight into the world of exporting from Japan and Importing to Australia gives Carizma an advantage on how to avoid all the pitfalls and traps when it comes to buying cars.

Recently, the demand for US imports has grown and Carizma has spent time understanding the unique needs for US imports, in particular the Right Hand Drive Conversion process which our specialists perform in house.

Sourcing vehicles to individual specifications is our speciality, so if you can’t find what you’re after on the local market or you want something a bit cheaper than what is being offered by the local market please contact us and we can advise you on how we can help find what you are looking for.
