Meet The Auto Body Professionals

TommyTom Hardiman-started in 1977 at Tom’s Auto Repair in North Providence. The business started out fixing wrecked cars and selling them in the neighborhood. When the customers got into accidents, they came back to Tom to have their vehicles fixed and so the business of auto body repair started. After 10 years, his business grew so large that he moved to the current location on Railroad Ave in Johnston, where he has been ever since. Tom lives in Foster with his wife Barbara and their 2 children Sean and Ashley who are both in college.
