Hello, my name is Nick, owner and lead mechanic at Nelson's Automotive. As a client of our shop, you would work directly with me or one of my associates. I got into this business because I wanted to be here. I have been in the auto repair industry for more than 10 years and have expanded my knowledge and capabilities in that time. My pursuit of excellence in car repair began when I hung out at a neighborhood repair shop. To my surprise, the owner offered me a full-time job. I pride myself with keeping up with the latest technologies and old fashioned customer service.


We are a locally owned auto repair shop, consisting of professional and dedicated specialists.
