How We Became Nate’s Garage
From the moment Nate learned that he could fix what was once broken, a natural mechanic was born. Born in Edina, MN with a brief childhood in Richfield, his parents made a life changing decision to move him, and his two siblings to the rural town of Northfield, MN. He was surrounded by corn fields, five miles from town, where boys find anything with a motor to have some fun. By the time Nate attended the Northfield High School, he had finally found the subject that he was the most interested in, the Autos Program. He spent the majority of his time down in the shop learning about automotive repairs, and began acquiring the skills to become what he is today.
Throughout his high school career, Nate started working in the local garage’s, from being the lube oil guy, up to an entry level technician. He decided that he was ready to pursue further education in the Automotive Industry, and enrolled at Universal Technical Institute in Avondale, Arizona. Nate excelled in the program, and shortly after obtaining his degree, he had the privilege to work for Eaton Motors, until he made the decision to return back to Minnesota.
Over the last five years, Nate’s hard work and dedication grew into what we now know as, “Nate’s Garage.” One of the most rewarding feelings that Nate has is the following of customers that he has had spanned over the last fifteen years of his career. Nate is a genuine, honest, and reliable human being -- mix that with being a natural born mechanic, and it gives you an idea of how Nate’s Garage has gotten to where it is today.
