Customer Testimonials – Used Sales
Rich Abram, LGV Training Bristol
“Please can I express my appreciation to both Keltruck and in particular one of your employees from Newark, Mr Russell Barnes. I have worked in both customer service and the transport industry throughout my entire working life. On many occasions I have been pleasantly surprised at the level of service I have had. However, never have I received such a great service like I recently received from Russ.
“Just recently I decided to go self employed and start a driver training company in Bristol. After making the decision to purchase a Scania to start my business (as I know from previous experience there is only one manufacturer that it is a cut above the rest) I proceeded to search the market place for my ideal truck but to no avail. This is where Russ came in and took over. After one phone call to him, with the details of the truck I required, he has gone above and beyond to supply not just a truck, but also found the exact box I required and arranged fitting, sign work, re registration and numerous other details that I hadn’t even thought about. This may seem like it should all be in a days work! No, Russ was keeping me informed of the progress right from day one, even throughout his holiday. He took pictures at every stage of the build and even these were being sent to me at very late times of the evening. I don’t think he actually stops working. His work ethics are second to none.
“Being a novice at buying a truck, I cannot thank Russ enough for all the help and support he has given me, (and still is) right through the process. Please can you pass on my gratitude to him for all his hard work, and I can assure you that when I am ready to purchase my next truck, there is only one person that I will be in touch with.”
John Wade, Wade Group
“As our company grew, so did its haulage requirements. Stepping up from 7½t trucks we bought a used 6w hook lift truck from Keltruck. Within a few weeks the truck was delivered ahead of schedule and to a standard that impressed with a full chassis blast and paint. Buying from Keltruck was hassle free, cost effective and all with peace of mind that we are buying from the best used Scania dealer, backed with warranty.
“12 months down the line we were on the hook again with a heavier haulage requirements as the company continued to grow. Again, after setting the bar so hight with the last truck, Mitch Gough at Keltruck delivered in every sense of the word with a brute of an 8w hook lift truck. I would say we are well and truly hooked by Keltruck!”
David Iddon, Iddon Transport
“I’m well made up with the service you have given me! I will be purchasing my second truck from you because it has been a pleasure.”
Chris Sanderson, Stephen Sanderson Transport
“They just keep going and going.”
Jacob Cobley, Richard Cobley & Sons
“We’ve been buying used Scania trucks for a number of years now but this is the 1st from Keltruck but it won’t be the last.
“We explained to Used Sales Executive, Rory Kelly, that the truck was to be our flagship, a little different to our other trucks and he’s certainly helped make this happen. We are over the moon with it! Everything Rory said he would do he’s done. Very, very impressed with the service from West Bromwich depot.
“We’ve also used Keltruck’s Scania recycling department recently – again very impressed with the prices and the service. The whole team get a thumbs up from us. We look forward to doing business with yourselves in the future.”
Simon Williams, S & J Williams Contracting
“May I take this opportunity to say thank you for the great service we received when purchasing the outstanding and very recognisable truck that we are now the proud owners of. The no fuss approach to business is a rare and exceptional thing these days and it suits the way I do business perfectly. The truck is a great advert for our business and every customer is proud to have it on their site as it also makes their business stand out. I will not hesitate in coming to Keltruck in the future to source our trucks, either used or new. Many thanks again.”
James Spooner, Staffordshire Builders’ Supplies Limited
“The morning the vehicle arrived it looked brand new, the paint work and sign writing were fantastic. The vehicle had been well serviced and supplied in a first-rate manner. Vehicle servicing and maintenance is well organised with just one phone call.”

“I purchased my first Scania from Keltruck account manager Alan Hill three years ago so I contacted Keltruck again when a quick turn around was needed. Our latest contract, delivering housing to the MoD and Premier Inn Hotels for Corus Living Solution, required us to start ASAP. As I already own Scanias, it was the obvious choice for the extra vehicles required. Their reliability and the fact that Keltruck is close to my operating centre and operate 24 hours is a big bonus. The two new additions, both 2003 Scania RT124LA 6×2/4 NA420s, were prepared by Keltruck Burton and given 12 month MOTs, had roof beacons fitted and were livered in my colours. I asked Alan for the vehicles to be ready for Tuesday 21 July which didn’t leave much time to turn them around. It turned out that both vehicles were ready three days before and I collected both on the Saturday morning.”

“Does the answer lie in the soil? Well it certainly helps! And there is no fertiliser better than the master’s foot (just ask Chris Kelly, Keltruck’s founder)! But seriously, the excellent soil here in Staffordshire produces a superb quality product & we purchase the best trucks to deliver our goods including our latest Scania P230DB4x2NA with a curtain sided body which carries a payload of around 10 tonnes. We’ve had 4 or 5 in recent years and for tractor units we usually purchase pre-owned Scanias at about 3 years old from Keltruck and then run them for 3 years which has proved very successful and cost effective with Keltruck Burton providing service and maintenance.”
Dennis Doherty, Managing Director, Doherty Waste Limited
“We have been buying the Scania product for a number of years now so when I was looking to buy a second hand tipper grab, there was only one choice as far as I was concerned. I have always been happy with the reliability and back up offered by Keltruck and the Scania network.”
Iain Lees, Group Finance Director, OSS Group Limited
“The Group had recently purchased a number of new Scania vehicles and been extremely impressed with the service received and the quality of the vehicles supplied by Keltruck. I required a truck suitable to build a fully specified 5 horse box and, as such, didn’t hesitate in contacting Mike Kelly who then worked with the box provider to identify and source exactly the right vehicle for the job.
“The vehicle, although used, was in excellent condition, well presented and finally delivered by Keltruck on my behalf with little involvement from me. Keltruck did it all and in a short time frame as we were very keen to start the build and get the finished box.
“The truck is great – just what was needed! Many thanks to the team at Keltruck.”
Mark Gillespie, M.D., Midland Brick Fabrications Limited
“We had been looking to replace our current 7½ tonne Iveco with a larger vehicle as the business has grown. We had been looking at various options and after talking to other people in the trade who operate larger vehicles we came to the conclusion that Scania was the way forward. Our 7½ tonner has served us well but as work has increased we have found that we needed to go larger. This is our first 18 tonne vehicle and our only vehicle; this means that it was a very serious decision to make.
“We are delighted with the product & service given by Keltruck Scania, Lorry delivered on time to our specification, easy to deal with from a good efficient company. Keltruck staff, including the service team, have made the purchase of our new lorry easy and stress free!”
Jason Brooks, B & G Transport (Dudley) Limited
“Just a note of thanks regarding our new trucks. Returning to Keltruck Scania after six years has been an absolute pleasure. After choosing the right trucks for our operation from your vast stock the deal offered was too good to miss with the trucks being delivered before promised and all requested work carried out. A special mention to your paintshop for an outstanding job with the livery.”
