Do you need to change ownership of your vehicle in Japan??

 

Do you know what to collect?

Do you know where to go?

 

…No, probably not.

Let’s say “good-bye” to waste of time!

 

We, Cutbell International Legal Affairs Office, will take care of all of your paperwork for the procedure and minimize your time and money!

 

All you need is preparing only a few documents in accordance with our kind instructions in English and just sending them to us!

 

Cutbell consists of experts of procedure for vehicle as well as handling documentations for overseas.

 

When you buy or are given a vehicle with a license plate, you need to transfer its registration within 15 days in order to change the ownership of the vehicle.

 

This procedure, however, is very complicated for even Japanese people. Due to that all required documents for this procedure is in Japanese, it should be too much trouble for people from overseas.

 

If you try to do it by yourself, you need to visit offices at least twice on weekdays during the office hours. You could cut down on unnecessary time and cost by contacting Cutbell.

 

In addition, when the vehicle transfer occurs across different jurisdiction, you are also required to change the number plate. Originally you should have to go to the Branch Office of the Transportation Bureau to change the number plate, which is also a much trouble for you.

However, there is an only way that you do not have to visit the Branch Office to change it!!

The system is called “Shuccho-Fuin”, written in Japanese「出張封印」. And Cutbell provides this service.

Only qualified agents such as Gyoseishoshi Lawyers in Japan are allowed to travel to your parking space and do the procedures on your behalf. To put it more clearly in perspective, it is an “on-site service” of attaching and sealing automobile registration number.

*Please see the note of caution below for your information.
