Josh - Owner

865-379-9993 -

Hey, my name is Josh. Thanks for visiting our site. I'm assuming if you've reached this page you've either done business with us or are considering it now. And I want to say thank you. I grew up going to auctions with my dad and spent many hours helping him do body work on the cars he bought there. This initially was a second job for him on the side. But, one day, after twenty years in city government, he and my mom decided it was time for a change. They started Auto Solutions 19 years ago. Initially, they were the sole employees. It didn't take long for the company to grow and soon they had a family business on their hands. My brother and I started out washing cars, or pulling weeds, doing anything we thought they would pay us for (and some pro bono work as well). Eventually, they retired from the day to day operations and handed the reins to my brother and I. We watched them closely throughout the years and tried to replicate the things they did best. What we found, was surprising. It wasn't anything related to cars or mechanical workings or business ingenuity that made them successful. It was the relationships. How they treated customers. How they treated employees. In an industry where things tear up and people lie, we want to stand apart. Not that our cars are any better than anyone else's. And they are just that: used cars. They can be unpredictable, but we won't. We promise to be honest and transparent and run this business with integrity, and our employees do the same. Many of them are long-tenured, some have been with us for over a decade. They started as employees, graduated to friends, and now are family. And we will treat you just the same.

Facts About Me:

Are you an early bird or a night owl?

Both. Early bird gets the worm but second mouse gets the cheese.

If you could have authored any book in history what would it be and why?

Treasure Island. Robert Louis Stevenson wrote it for his son but it was so incredible the public took notice and it became one of the best-selling books of all time.

What is your favorite album?

I don’t know if I can pick just one. Can I give my top 5?

In Rainbows by Radiohead. Revolver by The Beatles. Born in the USA by Bruce Springsteen. AM by Arctic Monkeys. Rumours by Fleetwood Mac.
