Reggie’s Motorworks’ concentration is repairing European automobiles.
But owner Reggie Stewart saw a need to serve other customers as well, so he recently opening Noble Auto Service, 1372 S. 10th St., next door to Reggie’s Motorworks, 1362 St. 10th St.
“It’s filling the void that Reggie’s couldn’t fill,” Stewart said. “A lot of people who have a Porsche or BMW also have a Honda or Toyota, and they are looking for the level of service we provide for that car, so that is what inspired the opening of Noble Auto Service. We’ll work on any car that is not European.
“We’re also equipped to work on diesel trucks or work trucks. Between the two shops, there is very little we don’t work on.”
A Noblesville resident and 1995 Noblesville High School graduate, Stewart started Reggie’s Motorworks in 2006 and moved to Noblesville in 2011. It previously was in Westfield for five years and began in Lawrence.
“I started out selling used BMW parts on eBay, taking apart old derelict cars,” Stewart said. “It’s evolved into a very high-tech European auto repair facility.”
Stewart acquired Jim Foote’s Hamilton Auto and Tire’s customer database when it closed earlier this year and is honoring the former store’s warranties.
“His business was very different than mine,” Stewart said. “I don’t know that all the clients are going to be an exact fit, but I’m honoring his warranties. We are probably providing a higher tech service than he did but the same type of ethics.”
Stewart moved two employees from Reggie’s to the new shop.
“They know our culture and system of processing and have added two people in the front office, a service advisor and customer service rep, and two mechanics,” Stewart said. “I also hired a manager, so I’ve hired five people thus far. We’re always looking for talented automotive technicians. There is a shortage in our industry.”
Noble Auto Service will participate in a program called “Brakes for Breasts” in October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
“We will be working with Advance Auto Parts to provide free brake pads to clients,” Stewart said. “We will then charge normal prices for the labor to install them, plus any additional parts like rotors or calipers. At the end of the month, we will be donating 10 percent of our revenue from brake service to Dr. Vincent Tuohy and the Cleveland Clinic Breast Cancer Vaccine Research Fund. Reggie’s Motorworks will also be participating in this event, and working with a parts vendor called WorldPac (wholesale-only company) for the free brake pads.”
