Sid Phillips - Dealer For YOU!

304-472-1101 -

Sid Phillips founded Number One Auto in 1995 and is the owner and President.  Sid grew up on the floors and in the warehouse of Shannon Hardware in Buckhannon.  His father Bill owned and ran the business and put Sid to work at a young age, teaching him old-fashioned customer service, a strong work ethic, and values of integrity, all of which he has since passed on to his son, Shea.  To Sid, his customer will always be Number One, and he will do anything in his power to make them the happiest customers in the world.  When he's not at work, he enjoys spending time with his family, especially his two granddaughters, fishing, traveling, and watching college football and basketball!
