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.

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.

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.

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 was professional, friendly, and showed up on time. I was very satisfied with the work that was done. He was knowledgeable and answered all my questions while he was working. I highly recommend Nicholas and will use him in the future.

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.

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!

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.


on November 03

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.

Arrived slightly early (for a 7:00 a.m. appointment on a Sunday, which is a good sign) and performed his work efficiently and professionally. Personable and professional. Will use again and recommend to others. I'm sold on Your Mechanic. The convenience and quality of the mechanic I was sent to work on two vehicles, while I got to watch Sunday morning news and do yard work, is a paradigm shift for me--I'm never going to a waiting room again or waiting for a shuttle.

This is my second time within a week using Nicholas and I am still pleased. Will be using him again in about a week or so. He really gets and make sure your car runs smoothly.

Nicholas was prompt and early for my appointment. He was very honest in his findings regarding the work needed to be done to the vehicle. He took great care in his work and perform the service in a timely and efficient manner. I would seek Nicholas's service for any future service I need done to my vehicle.

Nicholas was on time, quick, honest, professional, and sufficient. He found the problems immediately and we collaborated the solutions. Looking forward to having him always service my vehicle.


on October 16

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.


on September 15

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 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 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.

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 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 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.
