If you need an auto body shop, you’re probably already frustrated and tense. Relax! Take it to JT’s Paint and Body Shop and trust their experts to fix it right the first time.

JT Richardson started the body shop in 1978, and 40 years later the business has an A-1 reputation. Located on Bacon’s Bridge Road about a mile from Dorchester Road, the business is now operated by JT’s children, Trish LeMay, Sharon Ziegler and Greg Richardson.

Carrying on the family tradition of excellence is a job they all take seriously. The shop offers a lifetime warranty on all work, which is performed by certified body and paint technicians. Shuttle and delivery service is available, and vehicles are cleaned inside and out and test-driven before being released.

Trish started working in the shop at age 23, back in 1981.

“It’s all I’ve ever known,” she said. “My dad asked me to come work with him and it was a good opportunity.” Today she works with customers and doubles as a damages estimator.

Sharon started working at her dad’s business in 1988; today she handles the financial end. Greg does paint and body work and is also an estimator. He started in 1989, at the age of 15.

JT’s works with all insurance companies—and LeMay made an important point: Vehicle owners are allowed by law to pick the body shop that repairs their cars.

“Your insurance company might tell you, ‘We work with this body shop,’ but you can pick the one you want your car taken to,” she pointed out. We will match any warranty.”

With a comfortable lobby area, clean restrooms, dedicated workmanship and friendly employees, JT’s offers a stress-free, personable experience.

“Were like a mom and pop shop. We have a reputation of doing quality work, and everyone says we’re the friendliest shop in town,” LeMay said.
