"The trucks were in tip top condition and the service couldn't have been better..."
Dave Marshall Transport
Redundancy for former Area Manager of a national parcels company, created a life changing opportunity for Dave Marshall.
Rather than trying to find a similar job, Dave decided that he really wanted to be at the sharp end in his next role
and was attracted by the 'Buy with Work' option at Secondhandtrucks.co.uk.
"I've held an LGV licence for the last seven years and I wanted to do a job which I really enjoy getting out of bed to do every day. The 'Buy with Work' scheme at Secondhandtrucks.co.uk suits me perfectly. I viewed a number of makes but opted for an '07 Volvo FH13 Globetrotter with I-Shift. The trucks were in tip top condition and I couldn't fault them at all. The service from start to finish couldn't be better either and I was able to drive the truck out of the depot to do my first job. I couldn't have had a better start."
"Secondhandtrucks.co.uk were more responsive, easier to deal with and were prepared to part exchange my vehicle too..."
European haulage specialist, Andy Parnham, needed a reliable truck as he spends part of the year on tour with pop superstar,
Madonna - one of a number of owner drivers that make up the road crew transporting the singer's outdoor stage around
"I needed to upgrade my truck from a DAF 4 x 2 to a 6 x 2 and chose secondhandtrucks.co.uk to supply my replacement vehicle, a 2007 ('07) DAF XF105 Superspace fitted with large fuel tanks. The wait on a new DAF was too long for me and whilst there were a number of dealers offering similar vehicles, secondhandtrucks.co.uk were more responsive, easier to deal with and were prepared to part exchange my vehicle too.
Apart from the exceptional service and their ability to deliver, I liked the fact the vehicles that secondhandtrucks.co.uk sell have only one driver from new and are meticulously maintained. A big thank you to Matt Heath and his team at secondhandtrucks.co.uk."
"We bought a great truck at the right price and we'll be back for more..."
Cornwell & Son
Cornwell & Son is a long established family business dating back to 1952. Based near Huntingdon, they specialise in farming
and general haulage. With a fleet of five trucks, the company engage in a mix of bulk tipping, tautliner and flat bed
trailer work travelling the length and breadth of the country.
"With the current economic climate and longer lead times on new trucks, we decided to opt for a used vehicle. Since 2000, I've been buying new and so with high driver expectations, it was important that we bought the right truck. We went for a '07 Scania 480 Topline retro fitted with an A Frame, visor spots and phone kit. The vehicle was sprayed in our colours too.
From start to finish this was a fantastic experience. The staff at secondhandtrucks.co.uk made me feel really welcome. I can't speak highly enough of Matt and his team and our drivers really like the vehicle too. We've got a great truck at the right price without the high cost exposure of new and we'll be back for more in the future."
"The service at secondhand trucks was brilliant and the truck arrived in perfect condition..."
With a team of four drivers and a little help from her truck operating brother, owner Helen Bond, has run a successful haulage
business in East Anglia for the last 13 years. The trucks travel all over the country pulling tautliner and fridge trailers
from Felixstowe and Harwich and so driver comfort is as important as price when sourcing trucks.
"We usually run our vehicles for three to five years. The fleet is primarily Volvo and I was looking to replace an older FH12 Globetrotter. I went to the main dealers for a late year identical replacement and eventually did the deal on a '07 plate with secondhandtrucks.co.uk.
Matt and his team were brilliant, we had no problems at all and the truck came in our livery in perfect condition. The truck, price and service was so good, my brother bought one for himself from secondhandtrucks too. I can't recommend them enough!"
"We're very impressed with everything they do at Secondhand trucks..."
TJ Hood Transport
Antrim-based general haulier, TJ Hood Transport, has run a successful continental trailer operation since 1972. The vehicles
go anywhere in Western Europe. Their drivers are away, up to three and four weeks at a time, so reliability and comfort
are essential in any vehicle purchase.
"We run a mixed fleet but our preference is now for Scanias for all round performance and reliability. We've bought new in the past but the price has got so expensive, so we are now opting for fresh, used Scanias.
Secondhandtrucks.co.uk has been able to meet all our requirements on availability, quality and value and we're very impressed with everything they do. The '57 plate Topline R480 480bhp is working really well and secondhandtrucks.co.uk will be our first call for our next purchase."
"Go to secondhandtrucks.co.uk for a quality, used vehicle at an affordable price..."

to strength with one customer relationship now over 36 years old. Today, Terry is 70 and T&C Transport is a family
affair with sons Ian and Lee, daughter Claire and son-in-law, Gary, all playing their part.
"Our vehicles are workhorses and we need reliable trucks to perform for us at all times. We bought a '56 plate Scania Topline in our livery from secondhandtrucks.co.uk in a part-exchange. We went to secondhandtrucks because we wanted a quality, used Scania at an affordable price and that is exactly what we got. Our driver loves the vehicle and we're very happy with our purchase. I can't wait to drive the vehicle myself!"
"Secondhandtrucks made our experience effortless and we'll definitely be back to buy more in the future..."
DJ Fraser Transport
Essex-based DJ Fraser Transport has been trading for nearly 20 years, operating a successful low loader/bulk transport business
alongside a working farm. Owner, Duncan Fraser, was looking to replace one of his four vehicles to become LEZ compliant
and in the end was persuaded to buy two, the deal was so good.
"I operate a small fleet of Scanias on tramping work through the UK. Initially I had planned to replace one of the trucks. I came across Secondhandtrucks.co.uk in a web search on the Internet. After seeing the trucks, I bought two 480 bhp '56 Plate Scania Toplines fitted with A frames and tipping gear and they were presented in my livery, in mint condition.
In all my years of buying trucks, this was by far the easiest purchase I have made and I can't praise Matt and his team enough. Whatever I asked for wasn't a problem and they even delivered the trucks to my door. You can see the trucks for yourself at Truckfest in Peterborough."
"The support the whole way through has been excellent and the truck was in pristine condition..."
Mulholland Construction and Transport
Northern Ireland-based haulier, Mulholland Construction and Transport is a family business dating back to 1970 when owner,
Hugh Mulholland first started in general haulage. The business branched out into construction haulage with a small fleet
of tipper trailers in the 1980's and through Maritime Transport is diversifying even further into containers.
"A hotelier as well as a haulier, Hugh has built his business portfolio up over 41 years by adapting to market requirements and a lot of hard work and he knows a thing or two about delivering a high quality service. So when he came to Secondhandtrucks.co.uk, Hugh wasn't just interested in the trucks for sale.
I was really impressed with Secondhandtrucks.co.uk. This is a very professional company and the service I received was top class. I bought a '07 plate Scania Topline R480 in pristine condition and from my initial enquiry, the support the whole way through has been excellent. I've been very pleased indeed."
"I bought two trucks in top condition and was really impressed by the way I was looked after..."
W Humphreys Transport (London) Ltd

a range of services including bulk tipping, maintaining a wide offering to ensure that the trucks are kept busy throughout
"Bill approached Secondhandtrucks.co.uk to source two additional vehicles to increase his fleet up to 14 artics. I was looking for a couple of good quality trucks that were in top condition and reasonably priced too for our bulk tipping operation. I opted for '56 plate Scanias. I was really impressed by the way that Matt looked after me and the trucks were handed over in great condition too. Overall, it's been a great experience and I'm looking forward to putting the trucks to work."
"I was really happy with the quality of the trucks for sale and the attention to detail at secondhandtrucks.co.uk..."
A&K Transport UK
Alexei Samoenk started driving for Express Freight in 2003 and then, following his ambitions to run his own transport company,
bought his first truck and became a sub-contractor for the same company five years later. When Alexei decided to add
another truck to his fleet, his requirements were straight forward - a nearly new MAN and secondhandtrucks.co.uk had
just the vehicle for him.
"I like the look of the MAN TGX. It's spacious inside, returns good fuel economy and in my experience, has been really reliable, so I was keen to find another top quality, truck to expand my business.
I looked on the Internet and came across secondhandtrucks.co.uk. When I contacted Matt and his team, they were brilliant. They were extremely helpful and handled everything really well. I got a great deal on an '08 MAN TGX and the truck was presented in perfect condition on collection."
