Got my 1999 U14 SSS bluebird in 2001 for 56,000.00 from a "Bring it in for yuh and you do all the wuk" kinda guy. Was shidding bricks after my first payment to the fellah but he came through. Was probably the best investment I ever made in life.

Nah SBT is legit...but this sales agent is the smartman...lying and saying the vehicle ship so that we could pay the remaining balance before it actually ship...as for the guy who said he couldn't find the vehicle on the website...sometimes another agent will reserve it and it is taken off the website.

No. we agreed to pay 60% up front and then other 40% when he scans a copy of the bill of lading. that's how most people in Trinidad do it with SBT. At least, that's how smart people do it. We sent the 60% as agreed and now he pretending the vehicle ship so we can pay the rest...but when we contact the company he never even booked it to be shipped.

2 months? 3 months to receive vehicle? All vehicles shipped must now be manufactured in 2010?
Any chance of getting diesel?
And is the mileage correct as stated on the website before or after they tell you $100USD to roll back? Lol.

PS: remember all the damage may not be the responsibility of the company you purchased from. Have experiences where a lot of our vehicles actually get damaged in transit (when the ship moves; rough seas etc. and vehicles bump into each other)

Someone told me that sbt and other companies "adjust" your invoice so that customs here won't charge you a whole lot. Only if you ask your agent who sending the car for you...is this true? They also said that most if not all dealers use this technique and don't pay a lot of import taxes. And they still bussing we head with roro prices. True or no???

Yes is true that's why them so call importers making money.

They do 2 things
Increase the value just to show you how much the vehicle worth to rob u your money and behind your back they tell the japan sales man to mark up the cost so the importer will pay less taxes and then still robbing ya plenty money in taxes. Trust me I know about this. Plenty thief head thing out here

Hey folks I'm looking for a little info here. I was lookina at SBTJapan a while, and coincidentally a friend of a friend brings in cars and uses this site as well. I noticed a couple things that have me a little weary. I also look for cars on japan-partner... I noticed that sbt prices are very low.. but I see above ppl talking about marking up of prices and so forth. But on sbt I don't see the sheet with all the defects like i do on japan-partner.Also a lot of the cars on sbt are dirty, all inside dusty...looking like they parked up for ages... so it makes me wonder about the condition of the mechanics... can anyone elaborate.. thanks much

I know several people who have purchased from SBT and they have had no problems. If you read through this thread you will get an idea of what to avoid and what to do.

One person told me to make sure and get pictures of underneath the cars. I believe the mileage shown on SBT just like Japan-partner is more or less real. It only changes when the TT foreign-used auto dealers want to con Trinbagonians.

SBT is more reputable and realistic with their stock, as compared to others, like ICM for example...

I imported vehicles from ICM before. Very good quality, HOWEVER, they don't actually have a large stock or variety to chose from, as compared to SBT. They require pre- downpymts to go into the auctions for purchasing your required vehicle.
They utilize "Bait & Switch" method, whereby they show you a sample pic of a vehicle & sometimes don't indicate.

I have never succumb to any of the above, however I was sent a plain white tiida instead of a Pearl white tiida (which we paid for) & I recently landed a new model Xtrail, with numerous and very costly front suspension repairs to be done. I currently have both under query with them.

If purchasing from ICM, be very wary & insist upon inspection sheet, under carriage & actual pics of vehicle... All in all, SBT is a better choice.
