"Matt was spot on & kept me up to date every step of the way, it's in excellent condition and I really cannot fault it!"
Colin Walker Transport
Working as an owner driver for the past 22 years, Colin knows what he wants when it comes to buying a truck and knew exactly what he was looking for when he came to Secondhandtrucks.
I wanted an Air-Con Pod, Alloy Wheels, New Tyres and some additional lights explains Colin. Rather than buying them all myself and fitting afterwards, I thought it easier if they could be fitted before I took delivery.
Matt was spot on & literally sorted the whole lot for me. He kept me up to date every step of the way sending photos of each stage of the process, double checking everything with me & then arranged to have the truck delivered.
I was slightly apprehensive given the first time I'd seen it was when it pulled in my gate however, I had no reason to be concerned as it's in excellent condition and I really cannot fault it.
I will definitely be going back when I need my next truck.
"Time is so important in this industry and so dealing with Matt makes the whole process so easy!"
Owen Evans Transport Ltd
Formed in 1972 and operating a fleet of mainly bulk & refrigerated trailers, we're proud to be able to say we have supplied Owen Evans Transport Ltd with a number of vehicles over the years.
I only have to make a call to Matt and know he will have exactly what I want says Transport Manager, Richard Thomas. Time is so important in this industry and so dealing with Matt makes the whole process very easy.
He arranges for the truck to be delivered & there have never been any issues which always gives me the confidence to keep going back.
"Mike was extremely helpful and gave me the confidence to do the deal!"
Tony Barker Transport Ltd
Being an owner driver for the past 8 years, Tony felt the time was right to upgrade his truck.
Following 7 months of extensive research, Maritime came up as the best option for me in terms of spec, price, mileage, MPG etc. Plus with Maritime you know you're getting a VERY clean truck explains Tony.
Mike was extremely helpful & gave me the confidence to do the deal. He chose the Cab colour for me & I also opted for Lights Bars, Air Horns & Livery. The truck looks really great and is getting plenty of attention wherever I go. I've even had a Scania dealer tell me how good she looks!
My aftercare service has also been excellent, Matt has dealt with a couple of minor things for me without hesitation and got it sorted really quickly and smoothly.
I am already thinking of my next purchase from Secondhandtrucks in the next 12-18 months.
"The truck is in excellent condition and the attention to detail really shines through!"
S W Tyrrell & Sons
Working for himself is a way of life for Sean Tyrrell having been trading for the past 20 years.
"Historically I have purchased from main dealers and had been thinking about a replacement truck for a while explains Sean. It was whilst at this years Truckfest I visited the Maritime stand and had a conversation with Matt.
I found him to be very helpful and soon realised he could facilitate all my requests of Metallic paint, Chassis paint, Light Bars, Livery, Additional tanks, painted Rear Wings, Alloys, New Tyres etc keeping it in line with my existing truck.
We agreed on a deal there and then and the whole process from start to finish was smooth & hassle free. The truck is in excellent condition & the attention to detail shines through, along with all the extras it really is a lovely truck.
I intend to keep this for a while but when the time comes for me to buy again, I will definitely be going back to Secondhandtrucks".
"The truck is even better than I could've hoped for and would buy again without a moments hesitation!"
PAC Transport Ltd
Having been an owner operator since 2014 pulling both containers and tilt trailers, it was time for Paul Coleman of PAC Transport Ltd to source a replacement truck.
"I'd heard of Secondhand Trucks through ads, CM etc so when my truck started to get unreliable, I decided it was time for a change. I knew Maritime were at Truckfest and so took a trip and met Matt on their stand. I was really impressed and pretty much decided to buy from them a few weeks later following a second meeting, this time with Mike, in Tilbury.
I agreed on a deal for my Volvo FH4 including infill ears and new tyres and the while process was easy for me with both Matt and Mike going out of their way to help me.
The truck is great, even better than I could've hoped for and I would buy from Secondhand Trucks again without a moments hesitation."
"I found dealing with Matt both professional and hassle free and will definitely be back for more!"
Trading since 2014 KB Haulage has steadily grown to operate 4 trucks delivering timber from Tilbury docks.
"I saw the show truck that Maritime did for last years Truckfest Peterborough and was really impressed" explains MD, Kevin Bemrose, "and so this year I decided to call in and see what they had planned for this year."
"On arrival I saw the Scania nearing completion and after discussing with Matt, we struck a deal.
Everything on the truck from the metallic paint, alloys, bespoke catwalks and fuel tanks to the light bars has been done to an exceptionally high standard and my driver is getting plenty of attention wherever he goes.
I found dealing with Matt both professional and hassle free and will definitely be back for more as well as highly recommend them to others."
"I was kept up to date throughout the prep process with photos and both Matt and Mike were extremely helpful!"
"Being an owner driver for the past 8 years, it's always a bit of a minefield when the time comes to replace your truck" explains Matt, MD of MG Transport.
"I saw the Maritime ad in CM and gave Matt a call. He dealt with my request of cab paint, alloys, new tyres, roof mounted beacon bar, grill strobes, livery and private number plate without any issues.
I was kept up-to-date with photos throughout the whole prep process and both Matt and Mike were extremely helpful. I'm very happy with my new truck and will be recommending them to others. I also know where I'll be going when the time comes to change again!"
"The gift box in each cab was a very welcome touch too!"
Essex based Scott-Hire Ltd have recently taken delivery of 4 of our 2014 Daf XF105.
"From the moment Mike put the call in to us we found the whole process very straight forward and informative" explains MD, Donna Beauchamp.
"We had the cabs put to white and they all arrived as promised and in very good condition. The gift box in each cab was a very welcome touch too.
We will definitely buy from Secondhand Trucks again as well as be recommending them to others."
"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."
