About John Cunningham

Hey, I’m John Cunningham, and I’m a Red Seal Qualified Service Technician with over twenty-five years of experience.

As a kid, after school and on my summer holidays, I worked with my uncles and my father in the family business. My father ran his garage, which included; Gas station; Car retail showrooms; Auto collision repair shop; Paint shop; Parts retail; Auto servicing; Auto detailing, Classic car refurbishing.

The workshop was an exciting place, always something new going on, always great characters around staff and customers. As a kid, I thought this was magic. I knew from about eight years old what I wanted to do, “I was hooked.”

I worked in all parts of the family business, but I liked the mechanical side the most. A workshop in those days was full-on, engines and transmissions were rebuilt, not replaced.

In 2013, I was offered an opportunity to work for GM Canada, and since I’m a gearhead and love traveling, I jumped at it. I worked with GM for a few years and have hours and hours of GM technical training.

I also as recently as 2014, sat the Automotive Service Technicians Exam (Canada) – “Red Seal Journey-person Certificate of Qualification” and passed, scoring over 90%.

Over the Canadian winters, I learned how to build websites, and lawnmowerfixed was born.

I’ve since built two additional sites in the mechanical “How to” space, an ATV/dirt bike repair site and a car repair site.

If you have comments or questions, I’d love to hear them.

Thanks for stopping by, you can always reach me by dropping me an email.
