Josh & Hunter - Partners

865-379-9993 -

Let's go ahead and address this head on: yes, we're young. Both of us are in our thirties. You may be thinking that we had things handed to us. We didn't. Our childhood home was a doublewide trailer with a hole in the floor and a hole in the roof. And that was okay with us. Our Dad worked two jobs in order for our Mom to stay at home and raise us. One of those two jobs Dad worked involved fixing up cars and selling them. His other job was in city government. He stayed there for over 20 years, finally saving up enough money to open his own shop, pursuing that second job he loved so much, but this time for real - full time, with a building, and hats with our company name on them. It was the little things. With us boys grown, Mom had the time to go back to work, right alongside her husband. They grew the business together, the right way, for years, showing us how to work hard and treat people right. The more successful we got, the more they reminded us to never get too big for our britches. We both watched them closely, observing a change in their tax status but never in the way we lived, nor the way we treated others. After doing this for many years, they made the decision to retire from the business. They passed the torch to their boys, but not before watching us work in the detailing department, the service center, the auctions, and in sales. They even fired us a time or two along the way. We've grown since our humble beginnings but we never lost our family feel. We make sure our staff passes that to you as well. Our cars aren't perfect; but we try. Our business model isn't perfect; but we try. We aren't perfect; but we try. You'll get honesty from us. You'll get respect. You'll get our best. It's the little things.

Josh and his wife have been married nearly 10 years and have three children: Barrett, Tirzah, and Archer. He enjoys hiking, fly fishing, reading, vinyl records, and writing short stories. He is a graduate of the University of Tennessee and a finisher of the Knoxville Marathon. 

Hunter lives with his wife and three daughters. He plays bass guitar on Sundays at church and sings lead vocals for a hard rock band on the side. His desire is to provide quality cars for quality people.

Chuck - General Manager

865-379-9993 -

Chuck was asked to list his hobbies as well as what he enjoys about working at Auto Solutions. Instead, he responded with the lyrics to a Hank, Jr. song. In his defense, this sums him up pretty well. Here they are:


I live back in the woods, you see
My woman and the kids, and the dogs, and me
I got a shotgun, a rifle, and a 4-wheel drive
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive
I can plow a field all day long
I can catch catfish from dusk 'til dawn
We make our own whiskey and our own smoke, too
Ain't too many things these old boys can't do
We grow good old tomatoes and homemade wine
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

Nicki - Internet Manager

Nicki has experienced a meteoric rise through the ranks of Auto Solutions in a short time, entirely due to her work ethic and can-do attitude.
