We started as a small shop and a family with Dave and Margaret Nelson’s ownership which eventually went to their son Ken and his wife Cathy. Under their expert guidance Nelson’s became known for outstanding customer care and being one of the most trustworthy shops in Carroll County. As with life change is inevitable and Nelson’s Service Center was purchased by the Steinbach family which has deep roots in the Finksburg and Carroll County area, Ken and his wife Diane having graduated from South Carroll and Scott and his wife Alicia having graduated from Westminster. As a part of the purchase, Nelson’s joins the Auto Clinic of Maryland brand which is also proudly affiliated with Caton Auto Clinic in Catonsville, MD.

The Steinbach family has owned and operated Caton Auto Clinic in Catonsville, MD since 1975 and have grown it to be one of the largest shops in Maryland while still providing excellent, award winning, service as Caton Auto was awarded the Service Shop of the year by the WMDA and is consistently ranked nationally by the WMDA. We look forward to continuing the high level of service at Nelson’s.

Our shop has plenty of room to work on your large and small vehicles while still having room for taking care of your snow blowers, tractors, golf carts, and other small engine needs. Our staff constantly trains to always be on top of their craft and ready to serve you! We can handle anything from an oil change to engine or transmission repair as no job is too large or small. We invite you to come in and see how we redefine your expectations of auto repair!
