About Auto Solutions
Auto Solutions are a well-established, East Midlands based car dismantlers, specialising in the collection and recycling of cars, vans, trucks and motorcycles. We have clean, modern, authorised treatment facility (ATF) premises that are just 5 minutes from Junction 25 of the M1.
Where We Source From
We provide salvage services to insurance companies and the private sector within the East Midlands. Dismantling thousands of vehicles direct from insurers, we have probably dismantled every make of vehicle, offering competitive prices for every make and model of vehicle.
We buy petrol, diesel or electric, cars, motorbikes, vans and trucks. We don’t even require keys, documents or for the car to be running. With a free collection service (within a 10 mile radius), 6 days a week, by one of our own drivers. We collect MOT failures, unfinished projects, accident damaged, we will consider any vehicle you may have, just contact us today on 0115 939 7500.
We always have over 100 damaged or repairable vehicles in stock, all our vehicles have been inspected by qualified engineers and have been passed as suitable for legitimate repair or ready for breaking. We operate in accordance with ABI guidelines, selling category C, N, D and S vehicles, but will only sell Category B vehicles to registered ATF businesses.
Our Site in Nottingham
We have invested heavily in modern, clean facilities and have qualified for status as an Authorized Treatment Facility (ATF) from the Department of the Environment. We have a professional staff and qualified engineers providing our customers with a reliable, quality service and expert advice.
ATF – Authorised Treatment Facility
Our company has over 20 years of dismantling and recycling vehicles. When you have the need to dispose of an end of life (ELV) vehicle, we urge you to consider the environmental consequences and to select a registered, Authorised Treatment Facility which is part of a system that enables compliance to recycling targets and working practices. Always look for the recycling compliance seal before you decide to buy or sell.
Combating vehicle crime
We actively seek to combat vehicle crime and to help this we require a valid photo identification (driving licence or passport) before we can buy from you. We do not pay in cash, only direct to your designated bank account, further reducing the ability for individuals to sell stolen goods. Auto Solutions are East Midlands agents for www.raw2k.co.uk auto-salvage, online auction site, collections and deliveries.
