"The deal was done over the phone and they took my existing truck back in as part exchange. Perfect!"
Avvix Ltd first purchased a Volvo from Secondhand Trucks back in 2010 and, we're proud to say they've been running it problem free for the past 7 years.
"I could not fault the first Volvo I bought and so when the time to upgrade it was an easy decision to pick up the phone and speak to Matt" explains MD, Stan Schofield. "The deal was done over the phone and they took my existing truck back in as part exchange, perfect! I didn't see my new truck until the day I collected and once again, I was not disappointed. The custom livery they applied for me was fantastic and the condition was exceptional. I haul for the BBC and so reliability is a must for my business and I have to say, I have every confidence in the product Matt and his team supply.
I'm hoping to expand further this year and will definitely be giving Secondhand Trucks a call when the time comes.
I had heard they were in good condition however, it was hard to believe they weren't new!
Running a fleet of vans for several years the time had come for Domse Ltd to grow the business with the addition of a tractor unit.
When I started looking I noticed that I could get both tractor unit and the guarantee of work from Maritime and so gave them a call to find out more explains MD, Plamen Stefanov. After initial discussions it was clear the opportunity was too good to pass up and so I went along to view the trucks. I had heard they were in good condition however, nothing could of prepared me for just how clean and tidy they were, it was hard to believe they weren't new!
Being able to view the comprehensive service history of my truck as well as discussing the operational side of the business with the sales team was very beneficial to me and I was impressed with both their knowledge and their honesty. I am now the proud owner of a Scania and I very much look forward to working alongside Maritime and growing my business further in the years to come. I will be recommending them to others as I feel the whole package is a fantastic opportunity for anybody looking to get in to or, grow their existing business.
What Maritime offered was exactly what I was looking for coupled with excellent service. They arranged everything for me, from livery, light/beacon bar, PTO fitment as well taking in my Part Ex.
Steve Woolston & Son Ltd
Operating since the early 80’s and started by Steve Woolston, the business is today run by his Son, Stuart who was in the market for a replacement Scania Topline.
I was looking for a truck with right level of spec, mileage and condition for our bulk tipping operation. We work our trucks hard and so finding the right one is crucial to our business explains Stuart.
What Maritime offered was exactly what I was looking for coupled with excellent service. They arranged everything for me, from livery, light/beacon bar, PTO fitment. They even took in my old truck as part exchange, removing the need to sell it privately.
We have had many people ask us where we got the truck and we have no hesitation in telling them, we will definitely be back for more of the same when the need arises.
"Our whole experience from start to finish has been extremely good, all the staff have been very helpful and attentive every step of the way"
ASQ International Ltd
Established in early 2016, ASQ International first came to Maritime in the October to discuss the opportunities offered within their Buy with work.
Upon speaking with the team at Secondhandtrucks, it soon became apparent they could deliver what I was looking for in order to further grow my business explains MD, Stefan Sulkiewicz.
Our whole experience from start to finish has been extremely good, all the staff have been very helpful and attentive every step of the way. I would recommend Secondhandtrucks to anyone looking for both quality vehicles and guaranteed work. Based on the quality of what I have, I will definitely be back for more.
"As soon as we walked on to the Maritime stand at Truckfest, we were immediately taken aback by what was simply put, a thing of real beauty!"
EM Transport Ltd
Historically a buyer of new equipment however, the quality the team at Secondhandtrucks were able to achieve meant this used option was too good to turn!
“Normally we buy new but when we saw the quality and attention to detail Maritime had achieved with the Volvo on show at Truckfest 2016, it was a no brainer” says Matt Noon, MD of EM Transport. “As soon as we walked on to the Maritime stand we were immediately drawn to what was simply put, a thing of beauty! The truck was already in our colour scheme and the quality of the paintwork, alloys, new tyres, light bars & fuel tanks made it hard to believe it wasn’t a new truck! My Wife then made the decision there and then, I had to buy it!”
"Dealing with Matt and the team is a pleasure. I only have to pick up the phone and the truck is being sorted out for me."
Owen Evans Transport
Trading since 1972, the present MD, Richard Thomas, has been a long standing customer to Secondhand Trucks for the past 5 years, with Volvo being his truck of choice.
"I first purchased a truck from Secondhand Trucks in 2012, the presentation of their vehicles is as good as new and in all the years I've been dealing with them I have never seen it until it turns up in my yard.
Dealing with Matt and the team is a pleasure, I only have to pick up the phone the truck is being sorted out for me. I may get cheaper elsewhere, but I have the peace of mind of knowing the quality will be perfect for me. On the rare occasion I have had to use their aftersales, it has been handled swiftly and
without fuss, you couldn't ask for better."
"The staff at Secondhand Trucks have been very professional, always courteous and willing to go that extra mile!"
Boban & Son Ltd
When the time came for Boban & Son Ltd to grow their business, they wanted to benefit from not only a quality truck
but also the work to go with it. Maritime provided the answer to both!
"When I started looking, it was clear there was only one real contender", explains MD Bogdan Balmas. "The idea of a quality truck and the peace of mind that it will be out earning every day was for me, a no brainer.
The truck was presented in a like new condition, the specification allows my driver to live away all week and I can know he will be back Friday or, Saturday having had 5/6 full days of earnings.
The staff at Secondhand Trucks have been very professional, always courteous and willing to go that extra mile to ensure you all the relevant information to allow you to make the right decision for
I will definitely be recommending others to Secondhand Trucks and will be back to buy again in the very near future."
"I know the truck will be sorted, exactly to our specification including livery and will be in brilliant condition!"
Holchem Laboratories Ltd
A family run company operating since 1982, specialising in Hygiene and chemical manufacturing Holchem Laboratories first
purchased from us in 2013 and we're proud to say, they have returned every year since.
"We first came across Maritime when one of our drivers noticed they ran the same colours as us and how clean their trucks always looked on the road", explains Holchem Transport Manager, Paul Power. "I put a call in to Matt and we have not looked back since. Our drivers rave about the trucks and how immaculate they are, just like a brand new truck!
We find dealing with Maritime very easy, you put a call in to Matt and I know the truck will be sorted, exactly to our specification including livery and will be in brilliant condition. They're very thorough, proactive and we never have to chase anything.
Of course it goes without saying we will be back for more of the same and always recommend them to others looking for top quality trucks."
"I would 100% recommend Secondhand Trucks to anyone looking for their next truck and I will be back for more of the same in the near future."
Chris Bowen Specialist Transport
Operating a 10 vehicle fleet specialising in abnormal loads, Chris Bowen first came to Secondhand Trucks in 2014 after we
were recommended by a friend of his. Two years later and MD, Chris Bowen was looking for a flagship truck to add to his operation.
"I came back to Secondhand Trucks after the first vehicle I bought in 2014, a Daf XF105 served me so well and the spec of the trucks is exactly what I require for my drivers. After some initial discussions with Mike, I settled on a Euro 6, 2013 Scania Topline complete with custom metallic paint including rear wings and side skirts, chrome graphics, light bars and alloy wheels.
I wasn't sure of the paint code and so I left it up to the team at Secondhand Trucks and I have to say I couldn't be happier! The help and advice they've given me during the whole process has left me with a truck that's a real head turner! I'm still amazed it took just four weeks from the first call to collection!
I'm absolutely amazed at the service, the truck is like brand new, in fact the finish on her is even better than new!! I would 100% recommend Secondhand Trucks to anyone looking for their next truck and I will be back for more of the same in the near future."
"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."
