Hi, I moved here from the west coast and am having a problem finding a good repair shop. I am having some tranny problems right now. I have a 93' Ford Explorer XLT. I have done some mod's to it myself. I have never really trusted shops...being a girl does not help when dealing with some guys in the East. I am just looking for some info on shops, parts stores and a few junk-yards around the area. I like to work on my rig...that way I can only bitch at myself if something goes wrong but being honest some things I can't get a handle on...like the tranny work. Thanks for any input you folks give and hi.
I too live in Nashua and although my '02 Ranger has had little need for a mechanic, I've taken all my cars to Lowell St. Automotive for the last 10-15 years. Steve and Scott (father and son team) do a great job and I don't know if you could find a more honest, hard working bunch. Their work is excellent and they are both "Ford guys." Steve drives an F-150 and Scott has a Ranger that he's thinking of trading for an F-250. You can mention my name (Bob Dufresne) but I don't think it'll get you anything! They give great service to all their customers and as far as being a woman is concerned, my wife says they treat her very fair. There aren't many junk yards around that I can think of... there is one in Merrimack across from the American Legion Hall, but the name escapes me. Good luck and welcome to NH!
I just wanted to write "Thank you" for all the info recieved about place's to check out about my rig. I have nothing but good things to say about the people of Nashua. The town is a very welcome place and I am happy that I decided to move here. I am starting to become a "Fan" of the area. Thank you all for the help.
Hey, I'm from Nashua too. I bought my truck at Gladstone in Derry, on route 102. I trust them and they actually have a truck shop separate from the main shop. And if your up for a drive, there are some good pick and pulls down towards Worcester, MA (pronounced Woosta). and there's one that I know of in Derry, NH too.
Welcome to NH.

Rover, are you thinking of Majestic? Prices there are pretty high. There are several yards in Billerica and Lowell, too. Then there is Brandy Brow on the Haverhill/Plaistow line. They are open all day on Saturday, and until 3:00 on Sunday.

there are a whole bunch of places around the area. gladstone is the only dealer in the area that i would trust as for bone yards you have heberts which is decent the wilsons is also a good yard to find stuff in. if you don't mind the travel jack's is ok as well. i'm in brookline nh but originaly from hudson.
