I've been an automotive technician since 2010. I was a diesel/equipment mechanic in the Marine Corps for several years and have worked on all kinds of cars, from imports to domestics. I specialize in power trains, drive trains, and electrical. I'm a detail-oriented problem solver and enjoy applying my training and skills to figuring out how to make your vehicle run well.

Firstly, he was punctual and that's a good thing. I can tell that he was a very thorough person when he checks something, no matter minor or major problems. He was also friendly and nice, so it was very easy to communicate with him. He took his time and made sure everything was alright and good to go.

He was early to the appointment which was definitely not a problem. He was knowledgeable and mannerable. He got straight to business. Awesome work Nicholas!!!!

EXCELLENT service and he arrived literally right before the appt so I was surprised. He gave me a bunch of pointers as well which I needed. I hope whenever I book with YourMechanic that it is Nicholass that comes to do work on my car. 5 stars!

Prompt and honest about the work required. What more can you ask from someone who will drive out to your home and do repairs onsite?

Nicholas was very thorough and informative. We needed a Starter replaced and he did just that. He noticed another severe issue with the car. It wasn't great news but I'm very glad he pointed that issue out that plenty of other mechanics weren't "aware" of. He was very helpful and Knowledgeable with what we should do next.

Nicholas was on time, very communicative and educational about the needs of our vehicle. He worked diligently and wrapped up as promised. He is someone who really values the quality of his work. We would like to now keep him as our preferred "MyMechanic" mechanic. Thank you.

Nicholas had a very detail oriented and skillful approach. He highlighted all the problems that were with the car and also recommended how severe or detrimental they were to the car. He was very knowledgeable as well. I would highly recommend him for any kind of automotive service.

on September 08

Nicholas showed up almost an hour early. After trying a few times to get my belt off, he thought we may have to replace the tensioner, but he managed to get it off without further problems. After getting the belt off, we found out why the belt was so worn in the first place. Now he's booked to come back tomorrow to fix that problem. He thought the part wouldn't be available anywhere but through the dealership, but after I called the auto part store and was told they could have it today, he spoke with the lady there to ensure we were getting the correct part. Overall, he was very professional and courteous. Yes I'm upset my car is currently not driveable, but that's not his fault. Glad we found the problem in the driveway and not out on the road.

Nicholas was prompt and professional. He accurately diagnosed why the belt broke (Drive Belt Tensioner froze). Would certainly use him again as well as recommend him to friends.

on August 29

Nicholas was punctual and in fact showed up 5 minutes early even though my appointment was 7 am on a Sunday morning. He was very polite and professional. He completed the work in a timely manner and made other service recommendations for my vehicle. Would definitely recommend using this mechanic and this company.

on August 20

Awesome service. He showed up 10 min before the appointment, and was polite and knowledgeable. He repaired the problem I requested without having to replace any parts. I was thrilled since I had been quoted $1000 for replacement by another shop. He then verified that the noise I was hearing was not from the exhaust manifold (what the other shop had diagnosed) and was in fact from my transfer case. I will definitely use him again.

Nicholas is awesome very professional, and patience when answering a ten million questions. I would recommend Nicholas to anyone.

Nicholas gave a call 10 mins before reaching home. He is 10 mins early than scheduled time. He listened what i have to say about the issue. He checked the car and he knows exactly what he is doing. He Spot on fixing the issue. He answered all my questions and he explained very well. He loves what he is doing. I definitely come back to YourMechanic on my future needs. Thank you again !!!

on August 18

Our new go-to mechanic for Houston! Nicholas arrived on time and was incredibly knowledgeable as well as personable. Even though we scheduled him for an alternator replacement, we ended up only needed to replace the serpentine belt so the cost was less than expected and we purchased the parts necessary at a local store. It was pouring rain almost the entire time Nicholas worked on the car, in an uncovered spot, but he was upbeat and positive throughout the duration of our appointment. Needless to say we were all drenched by the end, despite the four umbrellas, and my husband and I are both truly grateful for a trustworthy and cost-effective mechanic.

Nicholas provided perfect customer service..friendly, knowledgeable, and took care of my car in a very timely manner..he took time out to explain exactly what he was doing and walked me through the benefits of servicing my car on a regular basis..I would 100% recommend Nicholas Anderson to any and everyone I know..thanks Nick!!

I purchased a pre-purchase inspection of a vehicle in Houston. Nicholad did a thorough job and was on time! The only thing I was not impressed with was the lack of detail provided about each issue or problem area. This may just be standard yourmechanic procedure. I called him and was able to speak to him on the phone about some of the issues so that was helpful and I was appreciative of his time.

My boyfriend and I had been trying for two days to get my old battery out and replace it with no luck, fed up, we researched mechanics and found yalls website. Nicholas was out the next day and worked his magic getting the stubborn battery out of my car. He did a great job and let my boyfriend watch him to learn a few things. Nicholas really was a life saver, he was knowledgeable and professional and now after days of headaches my car works!!

Very friendly and professional, had no trouble understanding what my car needed and got the work done as if working on his own car. I would highly recommend him!

Nicholas was great. Even drove around with me for an hour because i lost my key to my rim locks. Work was excellent and haven't had issues with the repairs he completed. Happy with his service and will only book him for now on.

on July 04

Nicholas was very pleasant and helpful. He knew exactly what he was dealing with right away. You could tell that he had prepared for the repair. He was very willingly to explain to me and illustrate the problems I had with my A/C-Heater Blower.

on July 08

Nicholas called us ahead of time about the appointment and came to work on time. He completed work on the brake system and it is working fine. He is a professional and answered all the questions. For the the future maintenance we will contact Nicholas.

on July 05

Nicholas was wonderful! He came early (with approval), was very respectful, and was very personable. He talked with us about our vehicle and our options. He was exactly what you want in a mechanic.

Nicholas did a great job replacing the alternator and drive belt on my car. He showed up early for the appointment, was very professional, and explained the necessary steps for the repair. While doing the repair he pointed out things to keep an eye on which might be of concern down the road. He was all around very knowledgeable about the mechanics of cars and I will use him for repairs in the future.

on June 24

Nicholas arrived early (and we had an early AM appointment), which was a very pleasant surprise. He was very polite, professional, and easy to work with. We were very appreciative of his recommendations and have already booked Nicholas to come back to replace the fluids he recommended be changed.
