Auction sheet verification has been a hot topic since cases of auction sheet fabrication started to surface in abundance. Car dealers tend to replicate auction sheets to hide the original condition of their cars to demand high selling price. In such cases, the verification of auction sheet becomes a necessary job. In my previous article in car import guide, I tried to explain what exactly auction grade on the auction sheet means. For a better understanding of auction sheet and auction sheet grades, you can refer to our articles i.e. “Japanese Car Auction Sheet Explained” and “Here Is What Your Japan Import Car’s Auction Sheet Grades Mean in Pakistan”. Let’s now get started with the process of auction sheet verification.

First of all, you need to know that how auction sheets are verified. When a car comes to the auction house, all its necessary details like manufacturer, make and model, chassis number and lot number are recorded in the Japan servers for auctioned cars. To verify your auction sheet, all you need is the access to those servers through a some website, chassis number of the car and lot number (on the top left corner of your auction sheet) of the car. Let me show you how it is done.
There is a Russian website through which you can verify your auction sheet by entering the required details.
Enter this website and you will see a page as shown below:
This page is currently in the Russian language. Select ‘eng’ (English) from the top right corner of the page. Enter ‘arsenal’ in the name text field and ‘motors’ in the password text field and click sign-in.
Select ‘Japanese Auto Auctions Sold Prices’ from the top bar. And the next page would ask you to fill in the required details.
Let’s say I select “DAIHATSU’ as maker with the model ‘Daihatsu Mira ES’. Select ‘All lots’ in the results text field and check all the check boxes as done in the screenshot below. Enter chassis number and bid number (LOT number) of the car. In case you don’t know the date of auction for your vehicle, select all months from January to December with the year as that of import year.
In that case, try entering some of the details while omitting the rest of them. Let’s enter the Bid number (lot number) and omit the chassis number for a moment. Now the search result displays two Daihatsu Mira cars of the same lot:
