"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."
"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!"

"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."
