About Us

Nick Smith Motor Repairs (formerly known as Ian Knight Automotive) has been established for over 20 years with a reputation for quality repairs and honesty.

Having owned Ian Knight Automotive for 5 years we think it is time to put Nick's name above the door of our family business - therefore we've changed the name to Nick Smith Motor Repairs. The service, staff and garage remain the same and we can still be reached on the same telephone number.

Nick has 25 years experience in motor repairs and is a qualified MOT tester. We offer a full range of servicing, repairs and diagnostics for all makes of cars and light vans, and even provide free MOT text reminder service.

We are easy to find. Travelling from Rawtenstall, follow Burnley Road towards Crawshawbooth. Travel a further 50m after the Black Bull on the right and you will also see us on the right opposite the White Bull.
