Nelson's Auto mechanics 


We like to keep up with current auto techologies and trends, but our level of experience also allows us to tap into traditional and classical repair service fundamentals as well. We love all types of car models- from foriegn to domestic. We apply this knowledge of cars to every auto repair job that we do.


Why are we different

We are a Locally Owned Auto Repair Shop, consisting of professional dedicated specialists. The Minneapolis and Twin Cities Communities are very important to Nelson's Auto Repair, and we give back by giving discounted and limited free services to help ease financial worries.


What's in a name

For more than 10 years, I've had an interest in providing the highest level of car mechanics. This is reflected in our company values as well. Pioneering, hard working, and integrity are words that describe how we would like to be remembered.



Hello, my name is Nick, owner and lead mechanic at Nelson's Auto Repair Service. As a client of our shop, you would work directly with me or one of my associates. I’ve put together an outline of my history and how I’ve come to start this local repair business. Hopefully it will give you an insight as to how we stand out in a sea of auto repair shops.


I got into this business because I wanted to be here, not because I had nothing better to do with my life. I have been in the auto repair industry for nearly 10 years and have expanded my knowledge and capabilities in that time. My pursuit of excellence in car repair, however, began when I hung out at a neighborhood repair shop. To my surprise the owner offered me a full-time job. Things have moved on and since then, I pride myself with keeping up with the latest technologies, and old fashioned customer service.
