"The whole process was completed within 2 weeks and the truck is in excellent condition!"
After gaining his Operators Licencen Paolino Pes then began looking for his first truck and work. He found both with Maritime Transport Ltd.
"The whole experience from start to finish was fantastic" explains Paolino. "Both Matt & Mike were very helpful and even arranged for their finance broker to call me to arrange funding.
The whole process was completed within a two week period and the truck is in excellent condition, I'm really very happy with it.
I will definitely recommend them to others and I am already planning on returning later in the year for my second."
"Matt took the time to find out my exact requirements and was really positive which was refreshing to deal with!"
Trading since 1984 operating a bulk tanker fleet, the time had come for SPB Transport to upgrade one of their trucks.
"After receiving a mailshot earlier this year & speaking with Secondhand Trucks I was really interested in what they had to offer but the time wasn't quite right for me to commit however, once I had decided to change, I gave them a call", explains MD, Simon.
"Over the years I've dealt with many dealers & salesmen, Matt took the time to find out my exact requirements & was really positive which was refreshing to deal with as I felt I wasn't being given the hard sell!
I will definitely be recommending them to others and when the time comes for me to replace another, I will be giving them a call."
"I had spoken to Matt in the past and kept coming back to their trucks due to their reputation, condition and top spec!"
Mark Evans Transport Ltd
Owner Driver Mark Evans runs a bulk tipping operation and had been looking for some time before deciding where to buy his pride and joy from.
"I had spoken to Matt in the past and I kept coming back to their trucks due to their reputation, condition and top spec.
The deal they put together for me including PTO and Kelsa bars with beacons & Alcoa alloys was really great and the addition of my livery really sets it off!
I will definitely be back for more of the same when I need my next truck."
"When I started looking at the vehicles on offer at Secondhand Trucks, the main dealers just couldn't compete with both quality and spec!"
S Brookes Ltd
Having run a bulk tipping operation for the past 10 years Steve Brookes was in need of an additional truck.
"Historically, I've bought direct from the main dealers however, when I started looking at the vehicles on offer through Secondhand Trucks, the main dealers just couldn't compete on both quality or spec.
I added a PTO and roof mounted beacon unit and the attention to detail was fantastic, they really looked after me.
People comment on the truck and my personal plate really sets it off. I will definitely be back when I next need a truck for my growing fleet!"
"I will be recommending them to everyone and look forward to continuing my working relationship with Maritime as a valued Sub-Contractor!"
Being an employed driver with Maritime Transport, Krzystof knew the truck and work very well and so when the time came for him to realise his dream of owning his own truck, there was only one place he went to make his dream come true.
"Having been a driver for Maritime, I knew the trucks, how well they were maintained as well as the work side, so for me the decision was easy explains Krzystof. This gave me the confidence to start out on my own and knowing I could get a truck in excellent condition as well as the guarantee of work was a no-brainer.
The team at Secondhand Trucks were very helpful and even arranged the fitment of a bespoke tool box to my truck, they helped me throughout the whole process and I'm now the proud owner of my own truck and being my own boss. I will be recommending them to everyone and I look forward to continuing my working relationship with Maritime, only now as a valued sub-contractor!"
"My Daf was like new when I collected it and the whole team were friendly yet professional!"
Keri Jones Road Haulage Ltd
Having been involved in road haulage for the best part of 20 years, Keri Jones decided the time had come to go it alone.
"A friend of mine told me about the Maritime scheme where you could buy both your truck and benefit from guaranteed work. I put a call into the guys at Secondhand Trucks and liked what I heard and the whole thing suited my needs very well.
My Daf was like new when I collected it and the whole team were both friendly yet professional. The driver trainer at Maritime took me through everything when I collected my truck and was a really great help in explaining what was required.
Anyone looking for a really clean, well maintained truck with work, should give Maritime a call."
"The level of service and attention to detail was exceptional and I am extremely happy!"
Kozial Trans Ltd
Having initially worked for Maritime Transport as an employed driver, Matt Kozial knew about Secondhand Trucks and the offer of guaranteed work and decided this was for him.
"I liked the company and knew the trucks were of a high spec and well maintained and so I put a call in to the sales team. The level of service and attention to detail was exceptional and I am extremely happy.
I'm hoping to expand to expand my business in the very near future and will be putting another call in to Matt and his team when the time comes."
"The quality of my Volvo is excellent and would recommend Matt and his team without a moments hesitation!"
S G Limburn & Sons Ltd
Having been an owner driver for the past 20 years, there's little Steve Limburn hasn't experienced when it comes to buying or running trucks.
"Given the time I've been in and around trucks there's little that surprises me these days. However, I have to say that when a colleague told me about Secondhand Trucks I wasn't expecting the level of service I received.
I have purchased from main dealers previously but found the whole process from the first call through to collecting my truck to be far easier with everything I asked for being taken care of without any problem whatsoever.
I must say the quality of my Volvo is excellent, just like picking up a new truck. The roof beacons, chain tray, tool box and alloys I had fitted followed by my own livery just added to the whole experience and I could put the truck to work from the day I collected it.
I will definitely be calling Secondhand Trucks again when I need another and would recommend Matt and his team without a moments hesitation."
"Once again, the guys at Secondhand Trucks have provided me with a truck that with a private plate, you would think it's new!"
AK Transport Ltd
"I purchased my first truck in early 2016 and took the guaranteed work option from Maritime as well. I have been that impressed with the whole package I returned in early 2017 to take delivery of my second truck, this time a 2013 Volvo.
What Maritime offer is a long term relationship that allows you to grow your business alongside their own. They pay you weekly, supply a trailer and fuel cards and above all else, the work is guaranteed!
The trucks are like new leaving me the confidence they will be on the road each day and once again, the guys at Secondhand Trucks have provided me with a truck that if I put a private number plate on it you would think it's new! I couldn't be happier.
I have recommended then to a number of people looking for trucks, I just hope they have some left for me when I return for my next one!"
"I would happily recommend Maritime to anyone looking for a really great truck matched with a great service!"
After working in the family business William decided the time had come for him to set out on his own. After seeing the Maritime trucks loading in his fathers yard he made contact with us to find out more about getting his own truck and work.
"The was a big step for me and so being able to buy the truck and benefit from the guarantee of work is something no one else could offer and gives me huge peace of mind knowing I will be out working every day.
I've been very impressed from the start and the whole process was straight forward and uncomplicated. Mike was very helpful and the best sales guy I have ever dealt with. I would happily recommend Maritime to anyone looking for a great truck matched with a great service. As for the work, well that's just the icing on the cake."
