At The Reefer Trailer Centre, we pride ourselves on our level of customer service and satisfaction. However, don’t just take our word for it. We are thrilled to be able to share the words of our customers.

Invaluable as a source of expertise

I have a long-standing relationship with Steve and SOR, which has proven truly invaluable as a source of expertise right from the initial discussion around placing an order. The SOR brand has consistently provided me with both high spec and bespoke trailers that are perfectly suited to our pharmaceutical based contracts. They offer excellent build quality and the aftercare is second to none with The Reefer Trailer Centre having an extensive stock of parts always readily available. We have also seen some industry leading residual values which has made buying SOR trailers a very easy decision.”

Right specification for our work

Pre Owned Trailers Ltd has a wide range of stock available coupled with trailers that are the right specification for our work, which in the events haulage industry isn’t always easy to find in the used trailer market. We sourced the trailers and agreed a deal within a day which made it all incredibly simple. The trailers have fitted into our fleet perfectly.”

Personable & flexible approach

We have now completed several deals with John at Barker’s Finance including a Brand New Volvo 8×4 Hooklift, a Pronar slow-speed shredder and most recently a New Multilift Ultima Hooklift for a Scania on our existing fleet. John has consistently provided us with both a personable and flexible approach to our asset finance needs which has been truly invaluable when we are buying lots of different types of assets, so this approach is exactly what we need for our business. Another highly valued element is the speed in which John deals with our questions & queries. As we all know, finance can become complicated but John is always on hand to answer these questions and offer any advice we may need. Finally, John welcomes all challenges and asset types for finance which is great for us as we are always looking to diversify and grow as a business.”

Truly superb job

The team at Reefer Trailer Centre did a truly superb job of refurbishing the used trailers that I bought from them. The paintwork was carried out to the highest of standards, all whilst being completed well within the agreed timeframe. There was clear communication from James including regular updates, so I could plan to collect the trailers with plenty of notice. The efficiency and organisation of the whole process gave me complete confidence in putting the trailers to work. I am now looking at purchasing some more trailers from the team as the first batch have gone down so well.”

John is our first port of call

“We have been dealing with John at Barker’s Finance for a number of years between sourcing and funding our skeletal trailers. If we are looking for asset finance, John is our first port of call, he knows our business and understands our needs which helps to simplify the purchasing process. He has also consistently offered us support and advice around the spec of our kit which has been very valuable.”

Over the moon with the final result

“Our business has recently purchased six used trailers from the team at Reefer Trailer Centre. These trailers have gone through an extensive refurbishment programme and we are over the moon with the final result. We were advised by Steve on the best route to take on the trailers for our work and nothing is too much trouble as when we needed a cover trailer whilst our six were in the workshop, the Reefer team went above and beyond and supplied us with a rental trailer to cover that shortfall. I am thrilled with the service and look forward to doing more business together in the future.”

All we can say is thank you for a GREAT JOB

“We were recommended by a friend to contact James at Reefer Trailer for our Paint job, the paint preparation was a big job and we were consulted at every step of the journey, we visited to see the preparation of the truck, we could clearly see hard work that was going on and we could see the detail and effort that was going into our truck, which gave us great confidence.

When the truck was finished we were invited back to inspect it and we were completely blown away by what we saw when we arrived, the truck looked like new, even the guys who were fitting the decals had the same opinion as we did.

All we can say is Thank You for a GREAT JOB.”

Ken Summerton – Technical Director

Excellent company to deal with

“Excellent company to deal with. The used trailer we purchased was ready in the time we asked for and ready to go fully serviced, MOT’d and looking great with some new paint and parts to make it stand out from the usual second hand examples and ready to use. Thanks to Ian for the deal and the top service to add to the lovely trailer.

Clear advice every step of the way

“The level of service from The Reefer Trailer Centre was matched only by the finished product in our new trailers. We have purchased six Multi-Temp Chereau fridges with many optional extras and Steve was always on hand to give clear advice every step of the way, which was very much appreciated. The friendly approach that the team offers made for a seamless process and one I would definitely recommend.”

One of the easiest purchases I have ever made

Buying a Boxvan from Pre Owned Trailers Ltd was one of the most straight forward purchases I have ever made. Ian was permanently on hand throughout the process to answer any queries I had and even helped me source the right finance deal by passing me over to John at Barker’s Finance, who expertly talked me through all of the options to ensure I got the best deal available. I was so impressed with the team that I am currently looking to buy a second trailer from them!”

The right deal at the right time

We have completed numerous deals with Barker’s Finance. They consistently offer us the right deal at the right time to suit our business’ needs. Most recently, we needed funding for two Brand New DAF Trucks to be added to our growing fleet. John came up with a bespoke finance package using an Operating Lease to tailor the deal to our exact needs. John’s friendly and helpful approach is key and he has become a trusted supplier for our business.”

Total flexibility on the trailers' specifications

The Reefer Trailer Centre offers us the perfect combination. We have taken a quantity of brand-new SOR Fridge Trailers, where we received total flexibility on the trailers’ specifications to ensure that they met our exact requirements. As a business, we have also been hugely impressed with the overall build quality of the trailers. In addition to this, Steve was also able to provide us with fast and accurate lead times which enabled us to pre-plan the changeovers to our fleet. We also received exceptional value on our part exchange trailers. Overall, we were truly satisfied when completing our dealings with Steve, James and the team. We look forward to doing more business together soon!”

John goes above and beyond

“As a business we have used John at Barker’s Finance for numerous deals to date. John goes above and beyond however, as he has actually helped us source the right vehicles as well as place the finance. We really do value this as the nature of our business means we buy various types of kit so another set of eyes is always of value. So far, we have financed Scania and Volvo Tippers, a Mercedes Vito and a JCB Wastemaster Loading Shovel. This level of variation has always been welcomed by John and we have always been more than happy with the rate he has achieved for us. John conducts himself in a warm, friendly and very approachable manner so we can definitely recommend Barker’s Finance to anyone.”

The perfect purchasing solution

“I recently bought a Schmitz Mega Box trailer from the Reefer Trailer Centre. This type of kit is extremely hard to come by so I was thrilled to be able to source the trailer. We managed to box off a deal quickly and easily which was a relief. The best part however, was when I said that I would be looking to finance the trailer, Ian mentioned that they could also help with this. Dealing with John on the finance was perfect. He offered me many options so I could pick the best one for my business. Buying the trailer and having the finance from one place made life so much easier and offered me the perfect purchasing solution.”

John took on the challenge happily

“Dealing with John at Barker’s Finance was incredibly straightforward which was a relief. Some finance companies were reluctant to fund something this niche, yet John took on the challenge happily and presented me with various options for funding that were designed specifically for my businesses needs. No other broker came remotely close. Thank you for your efforts John.”
