We stand behind our work
Hi! I'm Alan McMorran, Owner of the Smith Nielsen and Transmission Shop of Brooklyn Park. I have been in the automotive repair business for 40 years. I started by attending Dunwoody Industrial Institute for automotive repair. I have worked for and owned Smith Nielsen and Transmission Shop for 35 of those years, starting as a transmission rebuilder, then as a store manager, and finally as a store owner in all this time, the philosophy of treating the customer, as you would want to be treated has helped take Smith Nielsen from one shop into a growing organization. Cars have changed a lot in the last 40 years but you can be sure that Smith Nielsen will still treat you like we did at the start.
"Thank you from a stranded traveler."

I started out in the automotive field in 1988 as an oil lube tech. I gained my ASE certification in various aspects of automotive repair. When I was given the opportunity to work for Transmission Shop Inc. in 1998, I jumped at the chance and have never looked back. I discovered that Transmission Shop Inc. and I share the same philosophy: follow the Golden Rule. This has played an important role, both in my personal life and the career I have chosen.
The goal at TSI is to get the customer back on the road
without added headaches and hassles that can accompany car repairs.
Working quickly and going the extra mile for the customer has given TSI a reputation for being the "good guys."
Putting customers first starts with TSI's employees, and is evident when bringing your vehicle in to one of our shops.
The TSI staff has always enjoyed working with people and solving their automotive problems. It's doing the extra little things that has created a very successful business from a small two bay shop in 1976 to several metro locations today.
As a customer at TSI, you can be assured you will be treated fairly, friendly and politely.
