“This was my first purchase from Secondhand Trucks and I have, and will continue to recommend them to other Haulage firms as well as customers of our own based on my experience!”
SMH Tyres Ltd
SMH Tyres Ltd was founded by Shaun Hodson who originally ran a small independent tyre company. Three years ago he decided to branch out into haulage and purchased a second hand Scania which was coincidently an ex Maritime truck and things took off from there.
"I had a look around your stand at Peterborough Truckfest about two years ago and was very impressed with what I saw" explains Shaun.
"This year I made a beeline to the Secondhand Trucks stand and had a brief conversation with Matt where we discussed my requirements. A week later I spoke to Matt again on the telephone and he was more than helpful as he had been throughout the whole purchasing process.
This was my first purchase from Secondhand Trucks and I have, and will continue to recommend them to other haulage firms as well as customers of our own based on my experience!"
"My driver and I are both extremely satisfied with the truck and I would definitely buy another truck from Secondhand Trucks in the future!"
Phillips Haulage was founded by Josh Phillips in 2013 which is when he got his first two trucks. Starting off doing container haulage, the company then expanded into tilt trailers and today do a mixture of the two.
"My experience with Secondhand Trucks was really good explains Josh. I met Matt a year ago when I was visiting with Paul Colman who was buying a Volvo from him. Matt answered all the questions I had while I was there and a year later I decided to upgrade one of my trucks and give Matt a ring.
The whole process was very easy and everything was sorted over the phone. My driver and I are both extremely satisfied with the truck and I would definitely buy another truck from Secondhand Trucks in the future!"
"This is the way to buy trucks! Trust me!!"
Chris Bowen Specialist Transport
Chris Bowen specialist transport was founded in 1999. With a high quality and versatile fleet they specialise in abnormal loads ensuring all their customers are represented in a professional way.
"Once again buying from Secondhandtrucks was totally stress free, explains MD, Chris Bowen.
I discussed what truck and extras I required over the phone. Half an hour later Matt came back with the finished price.
As with my previous purchases everything was arranged over the phone. I never had to leave the office as I was once again assured it would be a quality truck.
They also assigned a private plate for me as this was to be our company flagship vehicle.
When collecting the truck hand over took just half an hour and the vehicle was perfect. It looked better than brand new! I am not exaggerating, the finish is amazing! My driver and I are over the moon.
This is the way to buy trucks! Trust me!!"
"My experience of buying the truck on this occasion was, as last time, absolutely faultless"
S L Wood Transport
Starting in 2007 to focus mainly on accompanied continental traction, SL Wood Transport changed tactics in 2013 to concentrate on the UK to Ireland unaccompanied market which they still do today.
“My first truck, which was also a Daf that I bought from Matt, gave excellent service and travelled all over Europe doing high mileage without a single mechanical issue for the 4 years that we had it explains Simon.
We are now onto truck number 5 and having had a good look at what was out there in the nearly new second hand market, I found myself back again at secondhandtrucks to purchase a Euro 6 Daf.
My experience of buying the truck on this occasion was, as last time, absolutely faultless. All the information I requested was met with prompt and seamless replies and Matt has a very relaxed and hassle free approach which is exactly how I like to do business.
The truck itself is an immaculate example and both myself and my driver are very happy with it.
I have had complimentary responses from everyone that I deal with that has seen it and have had no hesitation in telling people that we purchased it from Matt at Secondhandtrucks. I would recommend the vehicles to anyone.”
"Being able to own my own truck and having the guarantee of work on a daily basis was perfect for me"
Paul Cordiner Ltd
Owning and operating his own truck has always been a dream for Paul Cordiner and in March 2018 this dream became a reality opting to buy a Daf XF from us as well as become a dedicated sub contractor to Maritime Transport.
"Being able to buy my own truck and having the guarantee of work on a daily basis was perfect for me explains Paul. After a couple of conversations with Matt I opted for a Daf XF105 and I have to say I found the whole process very simple, straight forward and easy to purchase from Secondhandtrucks.
The communication was brilliant, Matt was always honest and understood what I wanted from my trucks, all my requirements were met and within the time scale agreed.
When it comes to needing my next truck I will definitely be back for more of the same."
"We find dealing with Matt and his team to be very easy, communication is excellent and the trucks are always in great condition!"
Having purchased their first truck from Secondhandtrucks in March 2018 Arthur Brothers have since returned for additions to their fleet in April and again in June.
"We run mainly flat work including an element of construction loads which tend to be wide, heavy and long explains MD, Martin Arthur.
We find dealing with Matt and his team to be very easy, communication is excellent, the trucks are always in great condition and the fact that they come with a full years warranty and can be delivered just makes it effortless for me. It's almost too easy!"
"Everything Matt said he would do was done and the trucks were received in showroom condition".
Started in 2004 CM Transport today runs a fleet of 35 trucks and 50 trailers on distribution work for some blue chip supermarket chains.
"We were looking at increasing the fleet and so gave Matt a call to see what he could offer us explains MD, Liam Browne. We agreed on 2 x Scania Topline's including delivery to the UK port for onward shipment to Ireland.
Everything Matt said he would do was done with no issues and the trucks were received in showroom condition. We will have no problem dealing with Matt and his team in the future and when we're next in the market for some further trucks, Matt will be our first call".
"The service I received from both Matt and his team as well as the lads running my trucks is fantastic and I'm already up to 7 Trucks!"
Lynx Transport Ltd
Working as an employed driver of Maritime Transport is enough for many however, for some, owning their own truck is the only option and this is exactly the case for ex Maritime driver, Marios Savvidis.
"I had been driving for Maritime for some time and have a really good relationship with my operators in Southampton but for me, owning my own truck was something I had to do explains Marios.
Having driven the trucks I already knew the quality of what Maritime could offer me was perfect in terms of age, mileage and specification. The fact I could also put my trucks back in to the Maritime fleet as a dedicated sub-contractor with both guaranteed work and earnings was the icing on the cake.
The service I received from both Matt and his team as well as the lads running my truck is fantastic and I'm already up to 7 trucks and looking to increase in the near future.
Anyone looking to own and operate their own truck should look no further than Maritime Transport and Secondhandtrucks! I will definitely be back for more!"
"The quality of the truck is very good and I've already been back on to Matt asking him to quote on further trucks!"
William Walker Transport
Based in Aberdeenshire and founded in 1949, William Walker Transport is still a family run business.
"We run a fleet of Daf and Volvo units on both local and long distance work explains Director, Grant Walker. We were looking to add to the fleet and gave Matt a call to see what he could offer us.
This is our first time of using Secondhandtrucks and we have to say the service has been first class in every aspect from start to finish. The quality of the truck is very good and I've already been back on to Matt asking him to quote on further trucks.
We had one small issue develop on the first truck and this was dealt with very swiftly and without question, we will definitely be recommending them to others and are very happy".
"I gave Matt a call and he was really quick off the mark, finding a truck that met our needs perfectly!"
CJ Haynes & Son Ltd
Trading since 1974 and into it's 4th Generation, family run CJ Haynes & Son Ltd decided to add another Scania to their general haulage fleet.
"We decided to return to Secondhandtrucks as we've been so pleased with the first Scania we purchased from them 2 years ago explains Wendy Haynes. The service is great and it certainly gives us the confidence in the product.
I gave Matt a call, he was really quick off the mark and found us a truck that met our needs perfectly. We asked for quite a few extras & the requests were quite long and it had to be "Just So!".
From the paint, new tyres, alloy wheels, light strips through to adding the private number plate before finally delivering the truck, it was exactly as we had asked for.
See you in 2 years for the next one!"
