Why should I buy a camera from JapanCameraHunter?
This is a mighty good question that I have been asked a few times recently. So, I thought it would be nice to fill you in on what I do and why I think I offer a good service.
Recently a few people have asked me why they should buy a camera from me. What makes me so special? And why shouldn’t they just buy a camera from e-bay? Well, that is a very good question actually. I am not here to tell you where you should buy anything, but hopefully I can give you some compelling reasons to buy from me.
1. I really really care about what I do
Now this may sound like a trivial reason for you, but this is my life. It is my full time job and for me it is everything. I love what I do and I love finding cameras or lenses for people. It give me a sense of satisfaction when I can find the thing they are looking for. And for me I would never buy something that I wouldn’t buy for myself. I want my customers to have the very best that I can get for their budget, and if that means sending something back or getting it repaired then that is what I will do. I will not see people unhappy with their camera. I know how it feels to get a camera and it turns out to be rubbish, and I don’t ever want one of my customers to feel that way.
2. I am good at what I do
Without trying to blow my own trumpet, I am pretty good at what I do. I have a lot of experience, but more than that I have earned the respect of my peers in Japan. This means that I can get access to the things that may not be available to everyone else. Simply put I can find things that are not always on the market. But not only that, I know my cameras. So I know what I am looking for and what the pitfalls are. I check every single item that I buy and if it is not good enough then I will not sell it.
3. E-bay is a crapshoot
It is a nightmare to deal with. The company makes it impossibly expensive for the sellers, so they often have to overcharge, as they are automatically going to lose 18% of their sale to fees. There are no end of dishonest sellers, who inaccurately describe items. There is no trust at all. You get ripped off on the shipping too, as people seem to think that is something they should be making money on too. And don’t even get me started on Craigslist and all of those. There are some good sellers on e-bay, but they are sadly in the minority. I get a lot of mails from people who have had a crappy E-bay experience and now want to use me to find something. Basically I offer a service that is completely unique and cannot really be compared to E-bay, I am a buyer and I make sure that I take care of each and every customer.
4. You get what you pay for
This old adage rings true, especially with cameras. I cannot deny that some people may find my service expensive, my service costs money. But, I offer a lot for that service. I source the item for you, in a foreign language. I buy the item, check it to make sure it is in good order, in some cases take pictures of it (a perk) and I ship it with the upmost care. I use my experience and knowledge to make sure that you get the very best item for your money. And my past customers have been very happy with what I have found them.
5. Because if you do I can keep on bringing you this site everyday
Yeah yeah, I know that is not really a reason, but if I had a full time office job or something like that I wouldn’t be able to bring you the site, with new bags and items everyday. It would be a part time thing. And I love bringing you all new stuff everyday. So support your friendly JCH and make sure that this site is always there for you :)
So, if you would like me to find you a camera, these reasons might make it a bit easier for you to do so. I am always open to requests and I really enjoy the unusual ones. I try to fulfill every request that comes through, but if I cannot I will try to show you where you can find what you are looking for. I believe in honesty and trust, on both sides. My customers often send me mails saying how satisfactory the service was, I hope you can find out for yourself.
