Frequently asked questions

Product questions

Why are the oils in ATO24 significantly cheaper than in workshops?

Due to large order and sales quantities, we buy the products at good prices. We would like to pass this price advantage on to our customers and therefore offer our products at lower prices than in the workshop.

My desired item is sold out. What can I do? Is there an alternative product?

We constantly keep an eye on our stock. Even before an article is sold out, we take care of the reordering. Since some articles have to be imported, we cannot name a flat-rate waiting period until an article will be in stock again.

As our range of products is constantly changing, it is unfortunately possible that we will no longer offer products in the future. However, there is a very good chance that we will be able to offer you an alternative product in this case. We will gladly advise you!

You can reach us by telephone (+49 5203 290) or via our contact form.

What do I do if I do not know which oil filter or oil is suitable for my vehicle?

To find the right oil for your vehicle, you can easily use the oil finder, which we have linked for you here www.ato24.de/Oilfinder. Alco offers a finder for the right oil filter: ALCO Oifilterfinder.

If you should not find a suitable product, we will gladly help you by telephone (+49 5203 290) or via E-mail (service@ato24.de). Please have either the key number (fields 2.1 and 2.2 of the vehicle registration document) or the information on the vehicle model, engine and year of manufacture ready.

Alternatively you can also send us the data via our contact form. We will contact you as soon as possible!

As soon as we have received the goods, we will credit you the corresponding value. If you have purchased by prepayment, we also ask you to provide us with the bank details of the account to which the refund is to be made.

Do I have to pay for the return shipment?

If an incorrect or damaged item was sent to you, we will of course pay the return costs. Please contact our customer service (service@ato24.de), so we can send you a return label.

If you have ordered the wrong or too many items, you will have to bear the costs of the return shipment (please see our cancellation policy for further details). Please note that the offer of a free return shipment always affects the price calculation. Instead, we would rather offer you permanently low prices!


How can I cancel my order directly after the purchase?

Simply send us an e-mail as soon as possible (service@ato24.de) or call us +49 5203 290. We will then immediately cancel your order.

If the goods have already been dispatched, we no longer have the possibility to cancel the order immediately. You must refuse to accept the parcel upon delivery and at the same time declare your revocation (for further details please see our revocation policy). We will then credit you with the total amount.

I have completed my order, but would like to add an item.

No problem. You can call us (+49 5203 290) and we add the article to your order or you order the article separately and inform us immediately by e-mail (service@ato24.de) so we can ship everything together as one package.

If the parcel has already left our premises, we can no longer combine the goods under one order. In this case, a new order must be placed with the required goods. Forwarding expenses result therefore under circumstances again.

I have completed my order, but would like to remove items.
