Terms of Trade
For an import order to be made, a 10% deposit based on the current total Australian cost of importing the particular vehicle must be deposited with us. This is to ensure only genuine orders are taken and this amount is refunded if an order is cancelled before the vehicle has been purchased from Japan.
Once an order has been filled a proforma invoice will be sent to you advising that the requested unit(s) have been purchased.
The following procedure is carizma’s payment system:
- Buyer pays Carizma a $1,100 Deposit
- Once a vehicle is purchased, the buyer pays the FOB cost of the vehicle.
- As the car arrives in Melbourne, the buyer pays shipping/customs/taxes for the vehicle.
- Upon completion of compliance, the buyer picks up the car and makes final payment for compliance and any other outstanding balance.
Once the particular vehicle has been purchased from Japan the deposit is no longer refundable and is forfeited if the order is cancelled from this time onwards.
However if the vehicle arrives in Australia and it is significantly different than what was stated in the contract or has been damaged, CARizma will accept full responsibility and either refund the deposit or repair the damage.
