About Us

Hello, my name is Lachlan Carter and I am the owner and operator of Blue Line Exports. We are an auction buying agent and export company based in Tokyo. I am an Australian expat who has been working in the car export industry in Japan for over 10 years now.

I have extensive experience exporting cars all over the world. My main markets are New Zealand, Canada, Hong Kong, Germany and Poland, but I have exported cars to most countries before so feel free to get in touch and I will walk you through the process.




Blue Line Exports (Lachlan) helped me source my dream car after a lengthy search. All my questions were answered and I received a very patient service.




I have been using Lachlan for several years now and have imported many cars through Blue Line Exports. Translations are accurate and quick and I get lots of photos and a video from auction inspections which really helps give me confidence to bid. I am really happy with the service and look forward to importing more great cars in the future.




It is hard to get a good impression from only the auction sheets. Lachlan knows what is important to his customers and has always been very honest and patient with me. Lots of pictures are sent of important details. It was quite adventurous to buy the first car from Japan but Blue Line Exports has given me enough confidence to continue. From start to end everything is very clear. 




I have been working with Lachlan and Blue LIne Exports for the past few years and in that time have imported over 100 cars. Great service, inspections are top notch, lots of photos, video, accurate comments. I look forward to continuing to work together in the future.

This was my first import from Japan and I was a little worried about buying a car through the internet but Lachlan guided me through the process and made it all quite simple. The bidding, buying and export was all easy, paperwork arrived quick and I love my new car. Thanks!!
