To Our Valued Customers:

Cousins Automotive is excited to officially announce the recent expansion of our business! We have moved to 9 Safford Street Ipswich, MA.

Some may ask, "wait, where's Butch?" Well, to put it simply, retired! But don't worry — Butch plans to work on a part-time for Cousins Automotive for the foreseeable future. Cousins Automotive has been working closely with Butch's Auto for over a year now. Butch Taves has not only sold his business — but trusts Nate Cousins with taking over Butch's Auto, and expanding Ipswich’s favorite automotive service to the rest of the community. Cousins Automotive plans to continue to provide excellent, high-quality auto repair services to local residents and businesses — and your neighbors agree!

"What a wonderful auto body shop! I had to reschedule and they were so accommodating and friendly! I’ve never had customer service like Nate and Butch! It’s so nice to finally have a mechanic I can trust and get great service from. I’ll be going here from now on, what a great little find! Highly recommend them!"

"As a car enthusiast, it's tough to find someone you trust to work on your cars when you're not equipped to handle a certain repair. Nate is a very professional, fast and good mechanic. Very good work and doesn't cut any corners and seems to have the right tool for every situation. Highly recommend."

M Review by Dan O Ipswich, MA
"I’ve used Nate and his company Cousins Auto repair many times now for help in my own repair garage when things just get to busy. I find Nate and his shop assist program extremely beneficial to me and my business and would highly recommend him and his services. Very professional and dependable and hasn’t let me down at all. Works efficiently and skilled to do any job."


g Review by John K Ipswich, MA
"Went to Cousins for an estimate for work. They were friendly, knowledgeable and fast. When the estimate came back with a warranty issue, Nate called my warranty company to make the claim. The warranty company would not cover the whole cost, and Nate worked with me to find the best solution. Great customer service, great work, great company."

"Dropped our car off for an oil change and brake inspection. As suspected, we needed a brake job which was completed that afternoon. They did a quality job in timely manner and at a fair price. I’m also impressed with Nate’s use of technology for communicating and enhancing the customer experience."
