Dale N
I began my career in a a small 1 man band garage and learnt the trade here before moving to an independent garage for 8 years where I worked my way up through the ranks to service manager. I also qualified as both an MOT tester & diagnostic technician. I moved to work for a Mercedes dealership 4 years maintenance technician before moving to do some commercial work for a few years. In 2017 I set-up my own business trading as Nicholson Auto Engineering. The business offers repairs to all makes/models and no job is too big or too small for the team.

Dale was very professional and did a fantastic job on my car. He arrived within the time window I was told and got straight to work. He knew exactly what to do with full knowledge of what needed doing. I highly recommend him.

Unfortunately I cannot leave a good review. My Grandma waited at home for two hours (the booked time slot), and only half an hour after the end of the time slot, I got a missed call to say he wasn't coming. He came the next morning, spent a good amount of time looking at car and was very punctual this time at least. Also found him very hard to contact as he never available on the phone, though seemed freindly when we spoke. Also I subsequently came to have a look at the car and within an hour discovered a blown fuse in passenger compartment. I changed it and solved the problem. However, mechanic diagnosis was immobiliser problem, so I think diagnosis could have been better too.

The mechanic carried out a professional and thorough inspection which both myself and the seller were happy with. A suspension fault was identified during the inspection and the mechanic took the time to explain the nature of the fault to the seller. The seller was happy to rectify the fault prior to purchase. This saved me significant expense and this one fault justified the cost of the pre-purchase inspection. Overall the service given far exceeded my expectations for a relatively small outlay.
