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.

Friendly guy, called ahead to ensure he could arrive early, advised that my serpentine belt didn’t need to be replaced and installed a new alternator in an hour!

Nicholas was great. I was in a bind because my battery went dead in my work parking garage and it wouldn’t jump, and I couldn’t get a tow because the ceiling of the garage was too low. He was early, got right to work and knew exactly how to replace the battery in my car, which was under the passenger seat.


on September 25

On time 8am Sunday morning, which is impressive in itself. He was thorough and let me see what he was doing. Saved me money(at least $100) since he discovered the brake calipers did not have to be changed. He was thorough, and didn't let a stripped screw get in his way. Knowledgeable, courteous and professional. Great mechanic - I'd gladly book him again.

Nick arrived on time and was incredible! The labor he did on my car was no easy task and it was horribly hot an humid. He did a great job (with a smile) and I will definitely be using him again.


on July 09

Nicholas arrived early which I appreciate and thoroughly inspected the issue with my car. He showed and explained everything to me so I now know for sure what I am dealing with. He was friendly and polite and I truly appreciate the service your company provides.

Nicholas was on time and finished the job much sooner than I expected. He inspected my vehicle and gave me feedback on what items need attention to keep my vehicle running safely.


on July 27

Nicholas was 10 minutes before the appointment time, which I really appreciate. He was very knowledgeable and communicative. Gave me some extra pointers to get the car back safely on the road. Will be using his services again really soon for my other cars. 100% recommended!

Nicholass was timely, efficient, neat, considerate and great to work with. He answered my questions and was polite, courteous and friendly. I trusted him with my new (to me) Porche.

He arrive before time and was very easy to communicate. Extremely professional and knowledgeable. If I had a choice of selecting a Mechanic next time I would pick him

Nicholas performed an excellent job, inspecting not one but 2 Jaguar S types for me that I have been interested in purchasing. After informing me he was on his way, he got the inspections done early, which worked perfect for me, and showed me he really knew his stuff giving me detailed reviews on both cars.


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.


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 January 13

He was courteous and knowledgeable. He was careful when handling my car and its parts. He even cleaned up after himself. Professional service. I will choose Nicholas again if I need any other repairs.


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.

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 November 26

Nicholas is the consummate professional. He showed up on time; he completed the work quickly - very quickly; and made sure I was kept informed of his progress. An outstanding experience.


on July 08

Nicholas arrived early and was very professional and courteous throughout the service. While replacing my brake pads, he noticed that the brake fluid was a bit dark and recommended that it be flushed eventually. He had a quote prepared for me for that service at the same time. After the work was completed, we also discussed some future service (Tune-up) that I may want to have done on my vehicle and he said he could do that, as well. I will request that Nicholas work on my vehicle in any of my future service requests through Yourmechanic, if he is available.

Today was my first time using www.your mechanic.com. My appointment was at 8 a.m. and Nicholas Anderson the mechanic arrived early and was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. He was very honest in only charging me for the time he spend and not the estimated time give for the service when you book your appointment online. I would highly recommend Nicholas and will be using him as mechanic in the future.


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.

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.

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!!

Nicholas Anderson with My Mechanic came out to the house today at 7AM to replace spark plugs and perform an oil and filter change on my 2012 BMW X5 50i. Nick is extremely personable, very knowledgeable and extremely capable. He arrived promptly at the appointment time, completed the job in less time than expected, and left the work area clean. Great job. I highly recommend My Mechanic and Nick Anderson.

Nicholas arrived early, he was professional and performed the repairs in a timely manner. He was able to take pictures of other issues while he was under the hood and presented a quote as well as recommendations. I am very pleased with the service and his work.

I want to start out by saying that I really like this guy. He was prompt, courteous, personable, knowledgeable and took the time to listen and answer all my questions. He was very conscientious about keeping & leaving the area as clean as it was before he got there. Trans fluid service can be very messy, but you wouldn't know I had it done in my driveway! He took the time to go over my car and recommend some additional services I will be needing soon, and will certainly book Nicholas for them! He is also a really cool guy and enjoyed chatting with him while he was here. He's also a fellow vet! As a matter of fact, I had a friend at church that called me today asking for a recommendation and referred her to go on YourMechanic.com and request Nicholas.Thanks Nick!

This was my first time using this service. He was great! I had him check out a car at a small dealership to make sure it was okay to buy. I showed up late due to traffic and rain but I received a notice that he had arrived a minute early! By the time I got there he was ALREADY checking out the car. He had pictures ready to show me concerns on the car. He test drove it himself and let me know every issue. He was VERY professional and I was so glad to have him there. I know nothing about a car so when it comes to purchasing a used vehicle I had to make sure to have someone check it out first.


on November 14

Nicholas was great! He showed up a few minutes early (even though the appointment was at 7am) and got the job done. He was the first service person that has been on time to my house, so that was a definite positive. It has been two weeks, so it is safe to say he did the job right. I booked him for a rack and pinion job. I was having power steering problems and I noticed the rack and pinion was leaking after I replaced a pump I had on warranty. Turns out, the rack and pinion was only part of the problem, but before he left, he advised me that the pump was also likely bad. After I replaced the pump myself with a different brand (per his advice) all of my problems were solved. I will definitely use him again (even if I have to wait a few days for a spot to open) and recommend him to a friend or family member. It is hard to find a trustworthy mechanic, and Nicholas is one of those. Don't be afraid to book him! 2011 Chevy Impala - Rack and Pinion replaced.

Wonderful experience. Inspected vehicle completely and explained everything in a way I could easily understand. Will recommend Nicholas to everyone!
