Customers are not happy about the move.

 

“There is nobody that compares to them,” said DiPaolo. “We will all just have to drive a lot more cautiously … because we will definitely have a hard time finding a good auto body shop that will produce the same quality of workmanship as they did. We will miss their excellent work, but mostly we will also miss them as friends. They were always friendly and so helpful, and you were always completely satisfied with their work. We wish them all the very best and hope they enjoy their retirement years.”

 

Tom is not sure what will come next for him, and Dan’s short-term plans include cleaning out the Guy & Sons premises.

 

Dan noted that his father, Guy, “did what he wanted to do and he wanted to do it for us. This was his plan to make sure his kids got taken care of. I’m hoping that the sale will benefit my kids and Tom’s kids. That’s what we live for. It’s sad to say goodbye to so many of our customers. They’ve been stopping by. It’s almost like an old rock star going on a farewell tour.”
