"The whole process from start to finish was fantastic and the service provided was really excellent!"
Paul Moir Haulage
"Being a new company it's always important to find the right vehicle to ensure your business gets off on the right foot. Having seen adverts for the vehicles Maritime offer for sale, we thought they were what we wanted and so seeing their stand at TruckFest was the ideal opportunity to have a face to face discussion" explains MD Paul Moir.
"The whole process from start to finish was fantastic and the service provided by both Matt and Mike was really excellent. We're really impressed with the vehicle and would have no hesitation to return for another when the time comes and will be recommending them to others looking for quality used vehicles."
"We purchased our truck following seeing Maritime at TruckFest, the truck was spotless when we collected!"
"After seeing Maritime's very impressive stand at TruckFest, we got talking to Mike and following these discussions we agreed a deal on a Euro 5 FH13 Volvo. Mike dealt with us through the whole process and was brilliant.
The truck was spotless when we arrived in Tilbury to collect it and I would have no hesitation in recommending Secondhand Trucks to anyone looking for a quality used truck."
"I cannot fault the condition the truck was presented in and I would definitely buy again!"
J & B Drivers
Having been employed drivers for the past 3 years, the time was right for Greg Borowski to start his own company.
"I applied for my O Licence and started looking for both a vehicle and work. It was then that I came across Maritime and I soon discovered they could offer me both", explains Greg.
"Marion was great at explaining the work side and Mike really looked after me when it came to choosing the right truck. The whole process was very smooth and the advice nice and clear.
I cannot fault the condition the truck was presented in and I would definitely buy again."
"The whole experience from start to finish was nothing short of exceptional!"
Cleveland Transport Ltd
Having been involved running his own Driver Training School, Dan Wilcox of Cleveland Transport Ltd soon realised he could
use the drivers, once trained, by putting them to work himself in trucks.
With this in mind he came to Maritime Transport to discuss the Buy with Work on offer and then decided to take a look at the trucks for sale.
"The whole experience from start to finish was nothing short of exceptional, Mike handled everything with urgency, efficiency and fully explained how it worked before we committed", says Dan. "We agreed a deal for 6, FH13 Volvo's, all of which have been put to work with Maritime.
Would I buy again from Secondhand Trucks? Well, I can honestly say the whole experience has filled me with so much confidence I already have and am now awaiting a further 3 Scania Highline's to be delivered which, again will be put to work within the Maritime operation.
I would recommend Maritime and Secondhand Trucks to anyone without a moments hesitation."
"Over the past 5 years I've purchased numerous vehicles and I have to say, the attention to detail shown by Secondhand Trucks is second to none!"
LGS Transport Services Ltd
Having owned and operated a small fleet of tippers for the past 5 years, Leo Stickley, MD of LGS Transport Services Ltd was
looking at opportunities to grow his business. Leo explains more.
"I came across Maritime and made enquiries. After discussing the work side of things with Tom Cole, I was passed on to Mike to discuss trucks. Having looked into the figures, opportunities and the ability to expand, I'm pleased to say with the professionalism of all parties I spoke with made me decide that Maritime was the company I'd been looking for.
After brief negotiations with Mike, a deal was struck for a Volvo FH13 Euro 5 unit and two weeks later it was ready for collection. I was stunned at both the standard and cleanliness of my new truck. Over the past 5 years I've purchased numerous vehicles and I have to say, the attention to detail shown by Secondhandtrucks is second to none!
The whole experience has been exceptional and I will most certainly be back for more as I look to grow my business alongside Maritime going forward.
Anyone looking for a quality truck in showroom condition will be pointed in their direction."
"Matt and his team are very easy to deal with, their knowledge and advice is always a huge benefit when trying to choose the right truck!"
Having purchased from Secondhand Trucks in 2012, Paul Beatty, MD of Beatts Haul returned for a second truck, a Volvo.
"I initially came to Secondhand Trucks as I needed a clean, reliable truck. I came back for more of the same", explains Paul.
"Matt and his team are very easy to deal with, their knowledge and advice is always a huge benefit when trying to choose the right truck and I was kept informed and updated by Mike, throughout the whole process. They even arranged the transfer of my cherished private number plate.
I will definitely be back when the time arises and have already pointed others in the direction of Secondhand Trucks."
"The whole experience has been fantastic and all the team at Secondhand Trucks are such nice people and easy to deal with!"
Rosia Mihai Ltd
Trading since 2010 and looking to expand the business into new avenues, Rosia Mihai Ltd started looking for both a tractor
unit and work. They found both at Secondhand Trucks.
"We heard the trucks were in great condition with low mileage and the fact we could benefit from the
guarantee of work & earnings only added to the appeal", says MD, Mirabela Rosia.
"We settled for a Volvo FH and we havent looked back since. The whole experience has been fantastic and all the team at Secondhandtrucks are such nice people and easy to deal with.
We will most definitely be back for more of the same and wouldn't hesitate in recommending to others."
"I would certainly be back to Maritime to buy in the future and would happily recommend anyone looking for quality vehicles!"
Sorin Transport Services
Sorin Trans was looking to grow his business and came across Maritime's Buy with Work scheme.
"I liked the idea of what Maritime were offering as well as the independence it would allow me" explains MD Sorin Gogu. "After speaking with Mike, who was very helpful, it all seemed very straight forward and after further discussions I settled on a Volvo, complete with white cab".
I would certainly be back to Maritime to buy in the future and would happily recommend anyone looking for quality vehicles and work if required to make the call.
"I can't praise the scheme that Maritime run highly enough and coupled with the "nearly new" vehicles Matt and his team supply it really works very well for me!"
Bison Transport Ltd
Set up in late 2014, Bison Transport Ltd has grown to now operate a fleet of 14 Daf XF105 all of which, we are proud to say have been supplied by Secondhand Trucks.
"I was looking to expand my business", explains MD, Harbinder Singh "and we were already running a very successful agency business supplying class 1 drivers to a number of blue chip companies. I wanted to own my own trucks and started looking at the Maritime Buy with Work offer.
After meeting with Matt and then going away to crunch the numbers, it soon became clear that the contract I would be placed on would allow my dream to become a reality. So after further discussions we purchased 4 Daf and put them to work with Maritime. 18 months later and we have just taken delivery of vehicles 10-14 all of which have been put back into the Maritime fleet. The work keeps my vehicles working round the clock and the weekly payment means cash flow is never an issue.
I can't praise the scheme that Maritime run highly enough and coupled with the "nearly new" vehicles Matt and his team supply, it really works very well for me and I am already looking at returning to further expand my fleet.
Anyone looking to make their dream a reality should look no further than Maritime and their Buy with Work."
"We chose secondhand trucks because they gave us the best deal on the trucks we wanted and great service too..."
RF Martin Haulage
Together, brothers Nigel, Tony and Andrew Martin run RF Martin, the general haulage business their father started in 1966.
While much has changed since then, the values that were part of the Company from the very beginning remain as strong
as ever today. Having a simple philosophy of buying and owning everything, like the two '07 DAF XF105 purchased from
secondhandtrucks.co.uk, RF Martin has weathered even the toughest of recessions over the last 44 years.
"We run an all DAF fleet and in the past we have always bought new. However, the price of new trucks made us look at used vehicles for the first time. We approached a number of companies, including secondhandtrucks.co.uk. In the end we chose secondhandtrucks.co.uk because they had the right trucks, the best deal and Matt and his team backed it up with great service too. We'll definitely be back to buy more from secondhandtrucks.co.uk again!"
