We make mobility easy
and sustainable.

With our services, we want to make sure our customers can get around reliably with their car, motorbike, or truck.

Individual mobility is a cornerstone of a modern society. We are committed to ensuring our customers' mobility and making their vehicles usable for longer. This conserves resources and, thanks to our services, is convenient and cost-effective. Our comprehensive range of car parts offers our customers a huge selection at attractive prices. Our tips, video tutorials, and expert chat support also help them to carry out minor repairs themselves. For more complex repairs, our partnerships with selected garages ensure transparency and fair services.

Our values

Our values are the basis for everything we do at AUTODOC. Browse over the images to learn more about AUTODOC's values.

Customer centricity

We offer high quality products and services that exceed our customers' expectations. We achieve this by understanding and anticipating our customers' needs – regardless of how much they know about car repair.

Collaboration

We can only achieve extraordinary things if we work as a team towards a common goal. In doing so, we acknowledge people’s different needs and value the contribution of each individual, whether from colleagues or our customers and partners.

Inclusion

Diversity and variety are in our DNA: AUTODOC was built by immigrants with limited resources. We recognise the value of individual differences and the cultural diversity of our colleagues, customers, and partners and create an open, respectful, and inclusive working environment. We implement this on every level – locally, globally, internally, and externally.

Empowerment

Everyone at AUTODOC has the opportunity to make decisions that make a difference. We encourage, inspire, and support each other to grow and succeed together.

Our story
A focus on the customer

In 2008, when Vitalij Kungel had to replace a bulb in the headlight of his Citroen Xsara, the garage charged him €60, even though the bulb itself cost less than €5. Vitalij had a literal lightbulb moment and a business idea was born. Together with his friends Alexej Erdle and Max Wegner, Vitalij launched an online shop for car parts (pkwteile.de). The first product sold was of course a bulb, costing just one euro.
Helping customers is what drives us to this day: we make mobility easy, transparent, sustainable, and affordable! The market for car spare parts and car repairs is not always easy to understand. Making the best value choice for car repairs can be an art in itself. That's why around 5,000 employees from over 50 nationalities in six countries work to make vehicle repair as easy and convenient as possible for you, regardless of how much money, time, or know-how you have at your disposal.
Repair your car yourself – it’s easier than you might think.
Everyone will find what they’re looking for in our online shop: we stock a wide selection of great value products for cars, trucks, and motorbikes from numerous brands and in every price range.
