"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!"
"The trucks were new apart from the km's on the clock. I can't sing the praises of secondhandtrucks enough..."
Logicraft owner, Russell Fielding, has worked hard to improve the quality of his trucks and to carve out a successful brick
and block transport business in the construction industry. His vehicles have to work hard for him too and for Russell,
making a living is all about uptime of the trucks.
"I prefer the Volvo FH13 I-Shift automatic which is why I bought two 2007 ('07) Globetrotter XL's from secondhandtrucks.co.uk and extended the R&M packages with Volvo.
I speak as I find and I'm also the first to have a moan, but I can't sing the praises of secondhandtrucks.co.uk enough. Nothing was too much trouble. The trucks I purchased were new apart from the km's on the clock and they haven't let me down once. Dealing with secondhandtrucks.co.uk was genuinely a great experience and will be my first call when I am looking for another high quality tractor unit."
"The best deal for my money, hassle-free service and a first class truck at Secondhandtrucks.co.uk..."
One Step Beyond
Conference and exhibition specialist, 'One Step Beyond' transports stage and exhibition kits for major events all over Europe
and beyond. They also work for theatre companies and ensure that the sets for the film premieres of some of the biggest
Hollywood blockbusters arrive on time for the launch. Owner, Darren Jackson, decided to go out on his own three and half
years ago, having worked as a driver in the industry for over 17 years. Today, with five of his own vehicles, Darren
has established an enviable reputation for quality and reliability by going that extra step.
"I was looking to extend the fleet, but because of LEZ regulations in London and now in many places on the Continent, I wanted a Euro 5 compliant truck. Having spoken to a number of dealers, I got the best deal for my money and hassle-free service from Matt and Sarah at Secondhandtrucks.co.uk. They really took my enquiry seriously and I ended up buying a '07 plate DAF XF105 on the forecourt because it was immaculate and ready to drive away. With secondhandtrucks.co.uk you can guarantee that the vehicles have been properly looked after from the moment they go on the road. Although I spend most of my time in the office these days, I plan to drive this truck until the novelty wears off. And if my work ever falls off, I know I can get work through secondhandtrucks.co.uk too!"
"Secondhandtrucks.co.uk bent over backwards for us and helped us every step of the way to get our business up and running..."
When Malcolm Stevens decided to go out on his own, there was only one company he was going to buy a used truck from. Persuaded
by his wife, Suzanna, Malcolm purchased a 2006 ('56) Volvo FH13 Globetrotter and took advantage of the 'Buy with Work'
"I had wanted to become my own boss for some time and Suzanna, my wife who is the driving force behind MR Stevens, helped me to make the decision. Secondhandtrucks.co.uk was definitely the right choice for us and we can't say enough about them. Matt and his team bent over backwards for us when we bought our truck and have helped us every step of the way to get our business up and running. Throughout the whole process we were never pressurised and the whole experience was a pleasure."
"Secondhandtrucks.co.uk was the obvious choice to supply our next truck having had such a positive experience before..."
Andrew Stephens Limited
When it was time to trade in their 2003 registered Scania which they bought from secondhandtrucks.co.uk, Andrew Stephens
Ltd. went for another Scania from Maritime's fleet.
"Our time is split between farming and transportation around the country. We are always looking for new opportunities to expand the business. Therefore regularly change our vehicles and our positive experience of the first truck from secondhandtrucks.co.uk made them the obvious choice to supply a replacement vehicle. The team at secondhandtrucks.co.uk are extremely helpful. The 2006 ('06) Scania R470 Topline we purchased was spotless and we got a great part exchange deal on the truck we were trading in too. Matt and his team really looked after us again."
"Secondhandtrucks.co.uk has the vehicles we want to buy, at the right price and when we need them..."
General haulier, SA Transport, a well run family business, looks after its drivers with top quality artics, choosing secondhandtrucks.co.uk
as its preferred vehicle supplier.
"We really like the quality of their vehicles and that is why we buy from secondhandtrucks.co.uk. Our latest purchase, a 2008 ('08) plate MAN TGX has been absolutely superb. Secondhandtrucks.co.uk has the vehicles we want to buy, at the right price, when we need them. The service we receive from the staff at secondhandtrucks.co.uk is equally impressive too. The truck is in our livery and customised with a personal plate on it with our driver's initials. It's is our driver's pride and joy and has already been on display at Truckfest."
"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."
