We do not currently offer insurance, on storage options. What we are offering is just storage and transport when requested. Customers can take out their own insurance, or Apexmoto can quote on insurance on a case by case basis. Apexmoto staff are licensed to sell insurance and we are agents for Mitsui Insurance.
Payment must be in advance in blocks of 6 months. We accept credit card, PayPal, PayPay, bank transfer or cash. We do not do refunds on early termination. Where storage fees are in arrears for more than 1 year, interest will be applied at 10% per annum. Where storage fees are in arrears for 2 years or more, the good will be disposed off to cover costs and the balance made available to the owner. Before any action is taken re fee recover, we will endeavour to contact you to avoid loss of goods. Where the arrears has been caused by hardship, we will do our best to work with you to achieve a solution that does not add to said hardship.
Apexmoto can transport your good to our storage facility and store and we provide a quote based on the type, size and weight of the items or volume.
We can also transport your goods back to your new address on your return. Reasonable transportation and handling fee apply.
For some SOFA personnel, this opens the door to purchasing newer model Japanese sports cars. You can purchase, use in Japan during your tour, have us pick up and store for X years, then we will drop the vehicle to an exporter ( separate cost ) when it is is 25yrs old ( exportable to the US ). You deal with the exporter to have the car shipped to a port in your country of residence or negotiate with another SOFA personnel to have the car shipped with them as household goods
Effects Of Storage
Mould, corrosion & mechanical or chemical degradation are issues that need to be considered for long term storage. For cars stored over 1yr, mould becomes an issue. Brake disks can corrode, batteries can go flat & tires can crack. Mould can be mitigated to a degree though use of dehumidifiers ( chemical or electrical ). Apexmoto is not responsible for any effects of storage, nor remediation.
