The best way to mitigate the risks involved with purchasing a Parallel Imported car is to turn to a reputable and established company. Here's a few of them.
Category: Car Buying Advice
If you're thinking of getting a Parallel Imported car, one of the safest things to do to help you with your decision-making process is to shortlist established Parallel Importers in Singapore. Established meaning how long they've been in business. The longer they've been around generally can be equated to said Parallel Importers doing something right and making their customers happy - because, without customers, the business would fail obviously.
Before you rush off to check every single Parallel Importer's registration date on ACRA, I need to warn you that it's an extremely tedious task. How do I know? Because the team and I did the research, so you don't have to. You're welcome!
