"Being able to own my own truck and having the guarantee of work on a daily basis was perfect for me"
Paul Cordiner Ltd
Owning and operating his own truck has always been a dream for Paul Cordiner and in March 2018 this dream became a reality opting to buy a Daf XF from us as well as become a dedicated sub contractor to Maritime Transport.
"Being able to buy my own truck and having the guarantee of work on a daily basis was perfect for me explains Paul. After a couple of conversations with Matt I opted for a Daf XF105 and I have to say I found the whole process very simple, straight forward and easy to purchase from Secondhandtrucks.
The communication was brilliant, Matt was always honest and understood what I wanted from my trucks, all my requirements were met and within the time scale agreed.
When it comes to needing my next truck I will definitely be back for more of the same."
"We find dealing with Matt and his team to be very easy, communication is excellent and the trucks are always in great condition!"
Having purchased their first truck from Secondhandtrucks in March 2018 Arthur Brothers have since returned for additions to their fleet in April and again in June.
"We run mainly flat work including an element of construction loads which tend to be wide, heavy and long explains MD, Martin Arthur.
We find dealing with Matt and his team to be very easy, communication is excellent, the trucks are always in great condition and the fact that they come with a full years warranty and can be delivered just makes it effortless for me. It's almost too easy!"
"Everything Matt said he would do was done and the trucks were received in showroom condition".
Started in 2004 CM Transport today runs a fleet of 35 trucks and 50 trailers on distribution work for some blue chip supermarket chains.
"We were looking at increasing the fleet and so gave Matt a call to see what he could offer us explains MD, Liam Browne. We agreed on 2 x Scania Topline's including delivery to the UK port for onward shipment to Ireland.
Everything Matt said he would do was done with no issues and the trucks were received in showroom condition. We will have no problem dealing with Matt and his team in the future and when we're next in the market for some further trucks, Matt will be our first call".
"The service I received from both Matt and his team as well as the lads running my trucks is fantastic and I'm already up to 7 Trucks!"
Lynx Transport Ltd
Working as an employed driver of Maritime Transport is enough for many however, for some, owning their own truck is the only option and this is exactly the case for ex Maritime driver, Marios Savvidis.
"I had been driving for Maritime for some time and have a really good relationship with my operators in Southampton but for me, owning my own truck was something I had to do explains Marios.
Having driven the trucks I already knew the quality of what Maritime could offer me was perfect in terms of age, mileage and specification. The fact I could also put my trucks back in to the Maritime fleet as a dedicated sub-contractor with both guaranteed work and earnings was the icing on the cake.
The service I received from both Matt and his team as well as the lads running my truck is fantastic and I'm already up to 7 trucks and looking to increase in the near future.
Anyone looking to own and operate their own truck should look no further than Maritime Transport and Secondhandtrucks! I will definitely be back for more!"

This is our first time of using Secondhandtrucks and we have to say the service has been first class in every aspect from start to finish. The quality of the truck is very good and I've already been back on to Matt asking him to quote on further trucks.
We had one small issue develop on the first truck and this was dealt with very swiftly and without question, we will definitely be recommending them to others and are very happy".
