It can feel like a trustworthy auto mechanic is a rare thing to find. That’s why we feel so lucky to have Chad Tanguay, the owner of Merrimack Auto Center in Merrimack and Nashua, to help us out whenever our vehicles need servicing. Merrimack Auto Center is the epitome of a family-owned business as Chad’s dad, Don, opened shop in 1977. His dad’s ability to keep the residents of Merrimack on the road and safe earned him a respected position in the town. In 1994, after serving in the US Army for 5 years, Chad joined Don in the family business. The greatest attribute he learned from his father - and one Chad is trying to instill in his daughter - is to treat every customer with respect. At Merrimack Auto Center, they strive to be considered a friend by everyone who walks into their shop - not just their mechanic. Chad prides himself in the fact that over the years, he has gotten to know every customer who has come through his doors and will greet them by name upon their next visit.
