Kirk says, “Our customers have been our advertising, word of mouth has kept us in business, we have a good honest reputation.”
Andrea works in the front office with her dog, Liete. She is professionally trained as a nurse, graduating from the University of Massachusetts in 1993. Currently, she attempts to keep the accounting and marketing in order and along with the shop dog she acts as the shuttle driver for Auto Mobile Detective.
