My Experience Buying A 2014 Lexus GX460 On Manheim Through Kakakibuy by 222Martins(m): 11:45am On Jul 04, 2019
I was looking to buy a 2014 GX460 on Coparts and I decided to reach out to one of the trusted names on Nairaland that hasn't been called out for a dispute whatsoever “Kakakibuy.”

After a brief chat with him on the cool evening 01/07/2019, and reaching an agreement on his service fees and estimated budget for the car, the search began. Given the horrible state of the GXs listed on Coparts, i can't bring myself to drive such cars as i am safety conscious. So i decided to port to Manheim for a clean title, which i know will cost more. This thread was opened was record and transparency purpose. Initial commitment has been made in Naira and a first installment deposited in Dollars.

Oga Kakakibuy grin, over to you. Full disclosure permitted, but leave out details like names and account. grin grin grin grin

First, I'd like to thank you for the opportunity to deliver this Lexus on your behalf. There's nothing more satisfying than doing what you love and enjoy while getting paid in return.

There are 2 pathways to getting a car directly from the US - Salvaged (Copart and IAAI) and Clean title (Manheim and Adesa). If the budget permits, clean title is the way to go. I also understand that this is not for everyone. It's is what it is.

I can confirm that this vehicle has been bought, and we are now in the process of paying for it. Initial deposit which empowered me to bid on behalf of 222Martins was received (in Naira) and now since the purchase is successful, 1st Dollar instalment was also received and confirmed today.

Is this thread an advert or a sort of trumpet blowing? I don't know. It depends on how the reader interprets it. From my standpoint, it's important in life to document our actions, and when neccessary, share these with the general public. One person might learn a thing or two - and a prospective client may also decide to get started based on this.

If you mean concluded as in delivery to Nigeria, not yet. It's an ongoing process.

Status Update: A lot has happened since i last posted. Like i said in one of my replies to a thread; "you can have the money, find a good car dealer, find a good car at a fair price and shit will still go wrong." Now let's go over the timeline of this deal.

6th July 2019 - Made full payment to Kakaibuy for a GX460 after selecting one that meet my specification and the payment was confirmed by him.

9th July 2019 - Manheim confirmed payment for vehicle. So we wait for approx 2 weeks for document regularisation by Manheim.

9th August 2019 - We were yet to receive the title for the vehicle. Kakakibuy puts a call across to Manheim and was told their was an issue with the title, which was sent back to the seller to rectify. So we were left with 3 options:

1. Wait for the seller to correct and send the vehicle title
2. Open an arbitration and request a refund from Manheim
3. Choose another car from Manheim

After a little back and forth with Kakakibuy on the next step to take, I went with option 3 and the search for another car began.

21th August 2019 - We found another GX460 on Manheim and placed a bid for it and won.

26th August 2019 - Documents were regularised by Manheim and sent to Kakakibuy's US Address.

10th September 2019 - Kakakibuy confirmed receiving the Title.

18th September 2019 - Vehicle was picked up from Manheim's lot by driver, to be delivered to the port.

This is the current status quo of this deal. I will update as things progress.

A 222Martins rightly said a whole lot has happened since the last time a post was made on this thread. Everything that could go wrong administratively went wrong but we won't be here today, talking about the delivery of this vehicle (not the initial one but a replacement) without the patience, maturity, professionalism and understanding of 222Martins.

I am very grateful to have clients like you and I appreciate the way you have handled the delays and hiccups that came up in the course of this transaction. Thank you. I sincerely appreciate.

The timeline of events has already been posted above. The pictures of the vehicle are below.

One thing I have learnt from this deal is that in life, it doesn't matter what happens to you. Good things and bad things happen to us all. Disappointments are not special events reserved for the poor. It happens to us all. It's what we do about it that matters. And when a business transaction goes through this difficult phase, it helps a lot to have a business partner who understands. Personally, for me, this has been an amazing journey and I'm grateful to you, 222Martins for the opportunity to deliver this 2014 Lexus GX460 on your behalf.

Why not go to a dealership and buy, then ship?

I guess time doesn't mean much to you.

Buying from Dealership is more expensive. It may interest you to know those Dealerships buy from Manheim or Adesa Auctions and resell. These Auctions are only open to few peeps..

Status Update: Vehicle was impounded by customs today.............. I will create a new thread for this later as i believe a lot can be learnt from this development https://www.nairaland.com/5542822/beware-2014-gx460-cleared-adexfem/

Please for the record, KakakiAutos is not to blame in anyway for this. He delivered on his promise despite all the hurdles we experience during the buying process. There's no harm in recommending your client to another business that offers complimentary service. Na clearing agent wahala be this .....
