I like to consider myself pretty handy, but when it comes to cars, I’m usually lucky if I can figure out where the hood latch is. Despite that fact, I spent an afternoon with Guy Beckwith at Guy’s Auto and tried to make myself useful, or at the very least to keep myself from slowing him down.
After 11 years in the auto mechanic field, the small garage in Plymouth has developed a steady clientele, and its owner has developed a reputation for being honest and fair, something that’s not easy to come by in the auto industry.
“We thrive on treating the customer right. It works for us, and it’s what they want too,” Beckwith said as he handed me a grease rag. Relying largely on word of mouth advertising, Beckwith said he has seen his business grow over the years. Currently, he and full-time employee Scott Will work on approximately 40 cars a week, working from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
