Meet our team

We are a family run business with a passion for quality cars and excellent customer service. With a range of skills and combined experience in excess of 80 years, we are trying to dispel the usual way that car dealers are perceived to do business and bring integrity to all work we do.

Combining knowledge and enthusiasm, our Team will go that extra mile to make your experience of buying a car from us a positive one. All our Staff have passion, honesty and a drive to offer an exceptional level of customer service.

Find out a bit more about us here or come in and meet us in person; we would love to help you and offer you the 1BR experience.

Joey Wiseman - Valeter & Detailer

Joey has over 11 years experience of car preparation working with many of the main franchises in that time. He joined 1BR in 2012 and loves the difference that he makes as part of the 1BR Team: 'making something used look better than brand new'.

His particular skill is working on the interiors of a vehicle - it's more than just hoovering and polishing, it's attention to detail with every aspect of the car.

Outside of work, Joey's passion is for the Gym and Boxing (more spectating than participating these days!).
