"Having never used Secondhand Trucks before I called them to discuss purchasing a DAF truck", explains Michael Smith. "Having agreed on a price, we placed an order"
"Dealing with Secondhand Trucks was very easy. We wanted some extras including light bars and a private number plate, which were both dealt with extremely efficiently and did not delay the delivery. When the truck arrived myself and most importantly the driver was very happy with the condition of the truck - It looked like new!"

CAAP Solutions Ltd
CAAP Solutions Ltd was founded by Paul Andrews three years ago where they began doing plant hire and road haulage consultancy work. As the business grew they evolved into plant and agricultural hire which led to their first truck purchase. They now have two trucks and do a mixture of container, fridge, and low loader work and expect to double their fleet over the next six months.
"I had never dealt with Maritime before and after the whole experience I regret not buying my first truck from them" explains Paul. "We purchased a Scania R450 Topline and I have to say that Matt and Paul were absolutely spot on."
"The service from start to finish was flawless! We asked for full customisation of the truck and upon collection of the truck I was absolutely blown away by how good it looked, especially the pearlescent paint job and metallic chassis! The truck looked brand new and had been looked after at no cost spared."
"All I can say to anyone needing a quality truck is that Paul and Matt are the lads to sort it. I now have one very happy driver and I will definitely be back for another in the New Year!"
"When I come to buy my next truck I will definitely be choosing Secondhand Trucks!"
MK Shipley Freight Services
MK Shipley Freight Services was founded by Martin Shipley 15 years ago. After starting his driving career at 25 years old and 20 years as an employed driver doing European work he became an owner driver. Ten years ago he bought his second truck and he now decided it was time to buy his third.
"I already have a truck working for Maritime which has been on their books for three years now" explains Martin.
"I spoke to Matt who didn't have the truck I required for sale at the time but he said he would call me back as he did have trucks to my working spec. Ten minutes later Matt called back and had found me just what I wanted and at a fair price! I bought the truck unseen as I was aware of Matt's exemplary reputation."
"Matt and his team did a great job and I was very pleased with the paint job and the interior of the truck which looked brand new. I wanted a top spec truck at a fair price and that is exactly what I got. The whole process was very easy, stress free and all ran to time. When I come to buy my next truck I will definitely be choosing Secondhand Trucks!"
“This was my first purchase from Secondhand Trucks and I have, and will continue to recommend them to other Haulage firms as well as customers of our own based on my experience!”
SMH Tyres Ltd
SMH Tyres Ltd was founded by Shaun Hodson who originally ran a small independent tyre company. Three years ago he decided to branch out into haulage and purchased a second hand Scania which was coincidently an ex Maritime truck and things took off from there.
"I had a look around your stand at Peterborough Truckfest about two years ago and was very impressed with what I saw" explains Shaun.
"This year I made a beeline to the Secondhand Trucks stand and had a brief conversation with Matt where we discussed my requirements. A week later I spoke to Matt again on the telephone and he was more than helpful as he had been throughout the whole purchasing process.
This was my first purchase from Secondhand Trucks and I have, and will continue to recommend them to other haulage firms as well as customers of our own based on my experience!"
"My driver and I are both extremely satisfied with the truck and I would definitely buy another truck from Secondhand Trucks in the future!"
Phillips Haulage was founded by Josh Phillips in 2013 which is when he got his first two trucks. Starting off doing container haulage, the company then expanded into tilt trailers and today do a mixture of the two.
"My experience with Secondhand Trucks was really good explains Josh. I met Matt a year ago when I was visiting with Paul Colman who was buying a Volvo from him. Matt answered all the questions I had while I was there and a year later I decided to upgrade one of my trucks and give Matt a ring.
The whole process was very easy and everything was sorted over the phone. My driver and I are both extremely satisfied with the truck and I would definitely buy another truck from Secondhand Trucks in the future!"
"This is the way to buy trucks! Trust me!!"
Chris Bowen Specialist Transport
Chris Bowen specialist transport was founded in 1999. With a high quality and versatile fleet they specialise in abnormal loads ensuring all their customers are represented in a professional way.
"Once again buying from Secondhandtrucks was totally stress free, explains MD, Chris Bowen.
I discussed what truck and extras I required over the phone. Half an hour later Matt came back with the finished price.
As with my previous purchases everything was arranged over the phone. I never had to leave the office as I was once again assured it would be a quality truck.
They also assigned a private plate for me as this was to be our company flagship vehicle.
When collecting the truck hand over took just half an hour and the vehicle was perfect. It looked better than brand new! I am not exaggerating, the finish is amazing! My driver and I are over the moon.
This is the way to buy trucks! Trust me!!"
"My experience of buying the truck on this occasion was, as last time, absolutely faultless"
S L Wood Transport
Starting in 2007 to focus mainly on accompanied continental traction, SL Wood Transport changed tactics in 2013 to concentrate on the UK to Ireland unaccompanied market which they still do today.
“My first truck, which was also a Daf that I bought from Matt, gave excellent service and travelled all over Europe doing high mileage without a single mechanical issue for the 4 years that we had it explains Simon.
We are now onto truck number 5 and having had a good look at what was out there in the nearly new second hand market, I found myself back again at secondhandtrucks to purchase a Euro 6 Daf.
My experience of buying the truck on this occasion was, as last time, absolutely faultless. All the information I requested was met with prompt and seamless replies and Matt has a very relaxed and hassle free approach which is exactly how I like to do business.
The truck itself is an immaculate example and both myself and my driver are very happy with it.
I have had complimentary responses from everyone that I deal with that has seen it and have had no hesitation in telling people that we purchased it from Matt at Secondhandtrucks. I would recommend the vehicles to anyone.”
"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!"
