Just thought I would drop you a quick note on behalf of the
Breckenridge fire dept to say thanks again for all you did we had our
annual party at the fire hall with the firemen and their employers and
all the retired firemen from Breckenridge last night and they all were
very impressed with the truck. Nate and I also want to personally
thank you again for your time we spent with you in Texas and for
taking care of all of our concerns with the truck as you prepared it
for us as it arrived exceeding our expectations in breckenridge. Now
that i have been through this process once I look forward to hopefully
doing it again sometime as we are hopefully going to replace our 1977
pumper in a few years

I read through some of the feedback from many of your customers and they all say the thing that to me is the most important,dedication and commitment.When you and I first talked about the Pierce aerial I thought how hard can it be! Well as all of the people involved know things weren’t quite as easy as it sounded,(due to N.J.laws) but all turned out great.
Erik I have to say all the times we talked and kept in touch it all payed off, the Chester Vol. Fire Co. are the proud operators of a 1999 Pierce 105′ ladder.
Well for all the times we were comunicating in one form or another I can’t wait to meet you someime in person because you are the type of person that makes me feel that you are a CLOSE FRIEND.

Thank You From Byerley Farm and Ranch
1971 Boardman Pumper
Thank you so much for helping me on the pumper truck. Many people would have ignored me because it was not their BIG SALE. PEOPLE LISTEN TO ME, this is one GREAT GUY!!!! This was an old retired truck that was better than described and Erik was great and very helpful the whole time. I am in Central Texas and have been in a terrible drought for several years so I bought this truck for fire protection for my ranch. I deal with lots of folks everyday and it’s really refreshing to run across a guy like Erik.
Thank you again,

Hey Erik, We made it home with the 96 PIERCE Truck we both through you; IT WAS Just as you explained only nicer. When we got to the station to pick it up the other guys with me could not believe how nice it really was and said that the pictures did not really do this truck any justice, as it was by far nicer than they thought. The process in which we went through you from start to finish was one of the smoothest transactions we had in a long time, and will recommend you to anybody that was in the market for a Fire Truck.
A Big Thank You From The Fessenden Fire Dept.

Well just wanted to touch base with you and let you know we are very pleased with the truck it has met or exceeded our expectations in every way.

Erik, This is the white truck we got from you. As you can see we have done a little work on it. We hope to put it in service Monday. We are extremely pleased with it. Runs and pumps GREAT and with the “face lift” we gave it, from 10 feet away it looks like a brand new one. We have had a lot of compliments on it and have passed your web address on to several.

Erik, It has been a pleasure doing business with you again. It was cool hearing that our department purchased the first piece of apparatus you had ever sold. Well, another job well done on our purchase of our latest apparatus. I think this was the quickest we have ever purchased anything. It is good to know that I can fully trust your opinion in the fire truck market. I will keep in touch because you never know what you will run across.

Erik, It’s been a number of months now, since we first started this deal on the 2001 Pierce we purchased from your company. Texasfiretrucks has been a pleasure to work with. I am sure when we are looking for our next pumper, tanker or rescue you will be our first contact. I’m only sorry I didn’t have more time to spend in Texas when I was down. The truck looks even better than when I saw it five months ago. We are very proud of our purchase, no one believes the truck is five years old. For a small rural department, this is definitely the way to upgrade your apparatus, while operating on a tight budget. We will be showing off this truck every chance we get and letting others know where we got it. Once again Erik THANKS for everything you have done for us. I will be staying in contact with you and your website.

I would like to take this opportunity to tell you about a salesman named Eric that went above and beyond the call of duty. Eric works for Texas Fire Trucks and we purchased a truck from his company. Eric not only worked with us for the sale of this truck, but also worked liked he was buying this truck for himself. He is one of the most considerate salesmen that I have ever had dealings with.
Thank you and God Bless:

Thanks for all your assistance in selling our 1988 E-One Pumper. We sold this truck much quicker than we expected and received a very good price. I would recommend anyone selling a fire apparatus to use Texas Fire Trucks. This proved to be easier than we expected. Any Fire Dept. in the market for a used fire truck should first look on texasfiretrucks.com. for some of the best used fire trucks in the nation.

The Richmond Heights Fire Department was referred to Texas Fire Trucks through a neighboring Fire Department that was very happy with the service that this company provided in the sale of their pumper. We contacted Erik Petocz of Texas Fire Trucks on April 21, 2005 about possibly selling a 1986 Pierce Arrow pumper for the City of Richmond Heights. Erik was very helpful with what information would be needed to get our pumper on his web site. With in a few days Erik had color pictures and information on his web site about our pumper. By May 15, 2005, two different departments had contacted us about possibly purchasing our pumper. On May 20, 2005 our pumper was sold to Fairfax, MO. During the entire process Erik kept in constant phone contact asking if he could be of any further assistance and updating us on any contacts he had. If I had any questions, Erik would either answer them right away, our return a call with the answer in a timely manner. He also provided the contracts that were needed to complete the sale. I would highly recommend using his service. If I ever another truck to sell I would definitely contact Erik.

Thanks for all your help in selling our rather unique piece of apparatus in such a short amount of time. We were able to get the amount we were hoping to get for the truck. It could not have been a more simple process from start to finish. Thanks again and you can expect to hear from me next time we plan to sell another piece of apparatus.

My experience with you and your company was nothing short of excellent. You were very prompt in answering all questions and were very honest about the truck we purchased. You went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with the condition of the truck. When the need arises for us to purchase another piece of equipment you will be our first stop.

Our departments first contact with TexasFireTrucks LTD was in 2002. We were interested in a truck we seen on the web site (texasfiretrucks.com). After talking to Erik on the phone, we made arrangements to travel to Houston to look at the truck. It was all Erik represented it to be and more. We bought the truck that same day. Working with Erik is a breeze. He shoots straight and explains everything so there is no misunderstanding. Since 2002, we have purchased a total of three trucks through Texas Fire Trucks LTD. We have been so pleased with our dealings with Erik, when we are ready to purchase another vehicle, guess where we are going first? Right back to TexasFireTrucks!

Our experience with TexasFireTrucks.Com was painless. I was able to complete my day to day operations as an Assistant Chief in St. Louis County and not have the unnecessary worries of trying to get a fair price for our used trucks. Until I found out about your website I spent a lot of time trying to come up with a way to get better than “trade in value” and that’s exactly what TexasFireTrucks.com did for me. I look forward to listing with you in the future.

It has been a pleasure doing business with you and Texas Fire Trucks over the past few years. Our first engine purchased through Texas Fire Trucks was much more truck than we bargined for. We inquired about a truck listed on the website and after some discussion, Erik made us aware of a pending trade on some better, newer units. We ended up spending more than we had anticipated, but purchased a pumper much greater than we ever expected. We were looking at an early 80’s, off-brand, canopy cab pumper and ended up with a 89 Pierce Lance enclosed cab with low mileage for not much more. We had a very minor problem with this unit which Texas Fire Trucks took care of immediately. We feel the problem may have gotten overlooked because we were in a rush to get the truck. This truck is serving our community well and has not had any further problems. A year later, we were fortunate enought to be in the used truck market again. We contacted Erik first and he had a trade for 3 local trucks just developing. We purchased the oldest of the 3 trucks immediately after inspection. This truck was a 92 Pierce Dash with less miles than the previous truck. This pumper also continues to serve our community as our “First-Out” engine. As our community and department continue to grow, we will always depend on Erik and Texas Fire Trucks for quality, used apparatus. His up-front, honest demeanor and his willingness to work with customers has instilled great confidence in his service. We recently sold fire equipment through Texas Fire Trucks and the selling side is just as respectful as the purchasing side of Texas Fire Trucks. We keep Erik informed of our upcoming needs and future plans and he keeps us in mind on quality apparatus that may fit our needs. Thanks Texas Fire Trucks for dedicated and honest service.

Thank you for all you have done for the Ladue Fire Department. You made selling our pumper and ambulance so easy and I have not hesitated to tell other fire departments about your company. There is no doubt who the Ladue Fire Department will turn to next time we have a fire truck or ambulance to sell. Thank you for everything.
