Time to market is critical
An improved reconditioning process decreases time-to-market, reduces holding costs, and increases profitability for dealerships. From customized in-house staffing programs to "one-stop" mobile services, AutoFX has your solution.
AutoFX is an automotive reconditioning solution company
We specialize in S.M.A.R.T (Small to Medium Area Repair Techniques) reconditioning to reduce repair time and cost for our clients. Our leadership and technicians have decades of industry experience and are committed to innovation, quality, and exceeding client expectations.
Currently, we offer mobile services and "one-stop" reconditioning programs for car dealers in the Midwest. In addition, we offer our industry leading techniques and services direct to retail consumers at limited retail locations.
Our philosophy is to provide a quality service to our customer while also preserving our environment using innovative repair processes combined with new technology.
We stand by the following approaches:
- We repair damaged parts on a vehicle instead of replacing them. Unlike the traditional body shop method, this conserves resources that go into the manufacturing, transporting, and painting of replacement parts, as well as keeps damaged parts away from our landfills.
- We recycle and reuse our paint solvents.
- We aim to repair vehicles with many water-based products.
- We offer Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) as an alternative to remove many dents, which saves paint and other chemicals used in traditional body repair.
- We specialize in keeping the repair area small and using as much factory finish as possible to conserve materials and waste.
- We are constantly working with our suppliers to find products with the least impact on the environment.
