Q: What is the minimum parts shipment?
A:  Mihila International Co., Ltd. provides business to business parts service with bulk parts order. The miminum parts shipment is one container which can be combined with shipment of other stock in the same container.
Q: Why only bulk containerised shipments is provided by Mihila International Co., Ltd.?
A:  Cost of shipping parts in bulk by container is very low compared to cost of shipping the same parts individually. You can make more profit than other importers who try and import parts individually.
Also some parts due to their size or weight cannot be shipped individually. By shipping parts in containers they are safe and have less wear and tear.

Single parts might be lost during shipment while a container with all parts is more secure to be shipped.
Q: What are the different kinds of cuts available from a car?
A:  cars can be cut in the anyway you want but there are some standard cuts available as bellow:
Front Cuts, Front Clips, Half Cuts
These are the same cuts having different names in different markets. Cut on the A-Pillar just above the highest point of the dash (meter area) and through the floor just behind the transmission lever. All mechanicals are left intact and the propeller shaft and exhaust system unbolted.
Nose Cuts
As the name suggests, just the "nose" including all front bits with no dismantling and cut just behind the radiator support. i.e. bumper, reinforcement bar, radiator, condenser, headlights, grille, etc.
Side Cuts
These are typically B-Pillar Cuts with the B-Pillar and portions of turret and sill or "Sill Cuts" with the complete sill and small portion of the B-Pillar. These are used for repairing side crash damage.
Side Quarter Cuts
These are cuts typically cut through the floor in front of the B-Pillar and rearwards through the trunk, and through the roof inside of the edge. These are used for repairing rear side crash damage.
Rear Cuts
Basically "Long Rear Cut", or leftover part when you do a front cut. i.e. all the rear from the A-Pillar onwards. They take up a lot of space in a container, but can be packed out the trunk with small parts, and seats and small parts pack out well inside the car.
Roof Cuts
These are cut through the A, B and C-Pillars to get a "roof only" cut.
Q: Can I import new parts with your service?
A:  You can source new parts as well as used and import them in the same containers. However, quantities of new parts are usually restricted because of the policies of Japanese manufacturers.
