Q. Aside from personal preference, which is better for Bermuda’s driving conditions automatic or standard transmission?
Bermuda’s unique driving conditions such as stop and go driving, narrow roads and low speeds make automatic transmissions an excellent choice. They are also simpler, safer and easier to handle for first time or inexperienced drivers.
In our hot summers, we find that lighter coloured cars generally stay cooler than darker coloured vehicles, which tend to absorb more radiant heat.
When we import vehicles to Bermuda we bring them in fully loaded with options that are available to Bermuda. The only option to consider at time of purchase is rust proofing which is highly recommended because of our proximity to the ocean.
Yes, but all personalized plates are dealt with through the Transport Control Department (TCD). Their website can be accessed via the Bermuda Government Portal at www.gov.bm in the Transport Control Department section. Any personalizations other than this are not legal in Bermuda.
Yes – no problem! When all of the formalities have been completed we would be delighted to deliver your new vehicle.
Yes, in fact any unused portion of your license, registration and insurance fees can also be transferred to your new vehicle. Your Auto Solutions Sales Professional will be glad to assist you in this process.
Unfortunately we are not able to offer a trade-in service at this time. There are only 2 options to pursue with your old vehicle. You may sell it privately which involves transfer testing at TCD and selling (or giving) it to a new owner. The new owner must register the vehicle in their name at TCD to allow you to be able to purchase another vehicle. Bermuda only allows one vehicle per household. Or, if your old car is at the end of its useful life we can take possession of it, cut it, issue a write-off certificate and dispose of it properly at the dump.
From the time your decision is made it will take approximately 2 days for your car to be prepped and ready for delivery. If bank financing is required, this may take several days depending on your chosen bank and personal situation.
The forms required for insurance are available at Auto Solutions. Your Sales Professional can assist you in filling out the form for your chosen insurance company at time of sale. However, you will be liable for all information that is required to complete the form.
It really depends on personal preference. We deal with all of Bermuda’s insurance companies and find that they provide similar services and offer competitive rates. If you have existing insurance on your old car you can transfer the unused balance to your new vehicle and keep your existing discount.
Besides personal identification (Name, Address, Contact info etc.) and the vehicle information (we can supply this information), your driving history is the most important data. You must be prepared to provide details of accidents, traffic offenses (not parking tickets) and insurance claims for the last 5 years. This information has the greatest influence on the rate that you will be quoted. It is very important to be honest here! Remember, you will be liable for all information that is required to complete the form! If the insurance company discovers that you have not accurately disclosed this information then insurance claims may be denied! If you are new to Bermuda, a letter from your previous insurance company may help you obtain a better discount rate.
In addition to your insurance paperwork, for vehicle registration there are three main forms that you will need to submit: the Vehicle Registration Form, Application to License a Private Car and the Assessment Form. Since Bermuda only allows one vehicle (car) per household, the assessment form links your vehicle to your dwelling and must be signed by the owner of the dwelling. This means that if you are not the owner you must have this form signed by your landlord. The Assessment number of your dwelling is also required and your Auto Solutions Sales Professional can help you determine this number. A great reference for information regarding licensing procedures for vehicles in Bermuda can be found on the Bermuda Government Portal web site at www.gov.bm in the Transport Control Department (TCD) section.
We do not provide financing at Auto Solutions Limited, however, we can assist you through the process of obtaining financing through the local banks. All of the required paperwork for the local banks is available at Auto Solutions Limited for your convenience. Normal turnaround time varies but financing usually involves at least 48 hours to complete.

In most cases yes we can. Rarely manufacturers stop producing parts if a vehicle has been out of production for several years and there is insufficient demand for that part to make it economical for the manufacturer to continue to supply it.
There are some variables that determine the length of time special order parts take to come in such as where they are being shipped from, whether the manufacturer has them in stock, the size and weight of the part for example. However, we average about 15 working days to get special order parts here.
The short answer is demand. If there is constant demand for a part or accessory we will carry it in stock. We carry all service and consumable parts such as oil filters and brake pads for all the vehicles we sell. We also have a large inventory of collision parts for our vehicles.
Yes, we will take returns on all parts EXCEPT electrical and electronic parts. Please see our returns policy posted at the service counter.
Frequently with electrical problems the fault is not successfully diagnosed and the new electrical/electronic parts are destroyed as result. The client is often unaware and assumes the new part was not required as the fault is not rectified and returns the destroyed part. For electrical faults we strongly recommend you bring your vehicle into our Service Centre and let our highly trained technicians resolve any issues.
