New business owners Chris Sprague and Jen Garneau want to be known for doing quality work and for their customer service.
"We do help our customers from start to finish," Garneau said. "We're a one-stop shop."
As a registered repair and body shop, they work with all insurance companies, working with the insurance agent after the customer makes the original call with a claim. They work with the rental companies and will drop off customers who live in the area. They also detail every car they service.
Sprague and Garneau met when they were worked together in Marshfield. When he saw online that the shop in Carver at 78 North Main St. was for sale, he asked if she wanted to partner with him in a new business.
"It was always a goal to be my own boss and have people working for me," he said.
Sprague, of Halifax, has also run two other shops, in Abington and Marshfield, but basically, working on cars is all he's ever done for a living since he was 17. Before that, he'd work on cars with his friends for fun.
In 1999, he graduated from South Shore Vocational Technical High School, having entered a coop program in school.
"It's all I ever wanted to do," he said.
Garneau has been in the autobile industry for 20 years and shares an affinity for cars. She handles the books for the business. Crossroads isn't the Hanson resident's only business, either. She co-owns a print shop with her boyfriend, and they plan to open a satellite office right next door.
As Sprague and Garneau grow the business, they plan to hire new employees in addition to their production manager, Ed Whitmarsh, but for now Sprague is also working on cars, this time for his own business.
"It feels good to get back out in the shop," he said.
