Tim’s Automotive Repair & Mobile Service has operated in the Nanaimo area for over 35 years; originally established as a mobile repair business in 1980, but most notably and recently, Tim’s Automotive Repair & Used Car Sales.
Tim Gagnon, the original owner, started with a 1978 Bronco and served the community at large until 2003. Then after, his sister Judy and her husband Al Schickerowsky bought it from him and continued the business as a mobile service for another 7 months. However, Al and Judy soon realized that times were changing and a stationary shop was needed. They operated Tim’s on Cliff St. for 1.5 years and then decided to move it to 1481 Bowen Rd, Nanaimo.
In May 2010, Al and Judy Schickerowsky decided to semi retire and sold the business to Dave & Elaine Seymour. With a focus on providing outstanding customer service, Tim’s has grown into a first class, full-service automotive repair shop and in December 2010, Tim’s Automotive Repair & Mobile Service expanded, providing used car sales to its long list of services.
Dave Seymour has been committed to providing the same quality service to all its customers that they have come to know and expect. The success of the Tim’s team has been recognized over the past 12+ years with 7 awards voted on by the business and Nanaimo community at large. However all good things must come to an end and it is finally time for Dave and Elaine to semi retire and pivot the business to Used Car Sales only. The location @ 1481 Bowen road is now permanently closed and will no longer operate as Tim’s Automotive Repair. The website will go by the same name; however the information will focus on vehicle sales only.
