At Nick’s Auto Care, the story began when Nicholas, inspired by his father’s career as an automotive technician, ventured into the auto repair business. From a young age, Nicholas showcased his talent by innovating and reengineering toys, making automotive repair a natural progression for him. After majoring in Metal working and Automotive in high school, he went on to earn his Associate’s degree in Automotive from Clackamas Community College. It was there he befriended a few who later opened an auto repair shop. Having worked with them for five years, Nicholas saw an opportunity and took a leap of faith. Selling his beloved possessions for the initial capital, he bought one of their shops, marking the birth of Nick’s Auto Care on his 26th birthday in September of 2011.
No ownership changes have occurred since its inception. Nicholas has been at the helm, turning it into a trusted name in the Milwaukie community and beyond. With over a decade of leadership and 20 years of auto repair experience, Nicholas, an ASE Master-Certified Technician, guides our skilled team with dedication.
Our wonderful team embodies a familial atmosphere. Chaz, the manager, initially joined as a technician. Krysteal is our attentive Service Advisor, while our expertise is amplified with technicians Cody, Chase, Josh, and Raven.
What differentiates Nick’s Auto Care from others is our genuine approach to treating customers as friends. We focus on understanding your needs, maintaining transparency from start to finish, and ensuring you stay informed about your vehicle’s progress. Most of our business comes from loyal repeat customers, referrals from satisfied patrons, and the continued trust and encouragement from the Milwaukie community.
Outside the garage, Nicholas is a devoted family man. He’s been with his incredible wife, Heather, for 14 years, and together they’re blessed with two wonderful children, bringing joy every day. The family extends to a lovable fur baby, Tucker, an exquisite fish tank teeming with exotic species, and a backyard brimming with chickens. They’re also anticipating the addition of cows soon! A nature lover, Nicholas often takes his family camping, exploring the beauty of Oregon, and indulging in outdoor powersports.
