This is our 1993 Chevy 3500HD 4X4 we purchased from your company for the Hanover Township Emergency Management Agency. We have since added equipment (and 15 volunteers) necessary to respond to emergencies within the Township. The vehicle was what we expected and we drove it to our headquarters in Illinois. Everything worked fine.

I would recommend your service to anyone.

The rescue is working out great. It seems nice
to have a truck in the station that is less than 2 decades old! It was a
great find at a great price. Thanks again for the great connection and a big thanks for what you do for all us poor small tax paying volunteer fire departments!!!!!!!

Barb and Jen,

Thank you ever so much with with your assistance in our efforts to market and sell our two apparatus. We feel that they have found "good" homes and are very satisfied with the prices we recieved. We never could have realized the same ammount of money by trying to sell on our own. In fact we have highly reccommended you to another department.
Thanks Again!

John Tobiassen, Chief
Plotterkill VFC, Inc.

The process was very easy. The truck was well maintained by Fairfax County and was exactly what we were looking for. With a budget under $80,000 there is no way we can afford a new $400,000 engine. We have less than $100,000 in this truck and we anticipate being able to get atleast 10 years service as our first out engine

"Our truck committee realized early on that we would not be able
to accomplish our goal [of buying a new unit], due to the price of a new truck. That's when
we turned to Firetec to help us locate a Rescue Truck that would fit
our needs. In less than one month we had this lead and within two
months it was parked in our station. It was a pleasure working with
all of the Firetec staff, they were very professional and we will be
looking to them for locating our next truck Thank you.’

God Bless- Mark Cush

The advantage of Firetec’s service is the audience they get. It was great to be able to advertise with no risk. Firetec exceeded our expectations, they went farther than just a website and a catalog; working with the staff was a joy...the emails, phone calls, their personal attention... I wish all of my vendors were as easy to do business with.

Captain Mark Cush
Bolivar, Ohio

Thank you for your personal service and ability to meet our needs with the Rescue Truck we purchased through you. You knew our need for a specific configuration of truck and our budget and matched it perfectly. As soon as you found the truck, your quick notification to me allowed us to purchase the truck in record time.

It is my belief that if you are in the market to purchase, or sell, a piece of fire apparatus, Firetec is the only name you need to know.

Again thank you for your exceptional work and making this asset become a reality for our community.

I strongly believe in giving credit where it is due. I have nothing but great things to say about Firetec. It is a safe, secure way to sell fire apparatus. It was extremely convenient and simple to use. The fliers and website are of excellent quality also. When we first started, we looked at multiple fire apparatus sales services, but found yours most appealing. I can honestly say we made the right choice. The communications and professionalism were second to none. Thanks a million.

“I am still kicking myself for being distracted by other dealers, I should have asked Firetec to sell these trucks a long time ago! We received several qualified leads within the first week with Firetec and sold both units to the same department. This turned out to be a great deal for the buyer and our fire district got more than we would have if we had traded them in. It worked out perfecty! I am recommending Firetec to every other department in my area.”

We are very happy with and proud of our new mini and have attached a picture for you to see and post on your site showing another satisfied customer. If needed I would deal with your company again in a minute. Keep up the good work. You company is very much needed in a market where new apparatus is getting harder and harder to afford.

After a long trip back home, the truck from Cooleemee, NC is now in its new home in Whites Crossing, Carbondale Twp. PA. We have been looking for this type of vehicle on a limited budget for some time now, and thanks to FIRETEC, we were able to find exactly what we wanted at a price we could afford. Not only were you instrumental in helping us, but the friends we made in NC are invaluable. Brian, the Chief, and his members treated us like gold. Here's a few pictures of the truck and representatives from both departments taken this past Saturday just before our departure back to PA.
Thanks so much for the service you provide, it is definitely an asset to every fire agency. If it had not been listed with you, we surely would still be looking for a truck. Hopefully we will be able to use your service in future purchases and will definitely get the word out about our great experience!

Working with Firetec in finding a new truck for our department was easy ...
we gave Firetec Sales a list of our required specifications and they did the
rest. Working within our price range, Firetec Sales emailed several
photographs to us, enabling us to narrow down the choice to the unit we
ultimately selected. We would recommend Firetec to anyone looking for a
hassle-free buying experience!”

Thanks for your help selling our 1968 Maxim. It was important to the
department that the truck be sold to someone that was going to keep it
up and not let it rot in a field someplace. You found us the right
person. The Maxim is going to someone that appreciates well kept
vintage fire apparatus. We would not have made the connection without
the reputation and coverage of Firetec Apparatus Sales.

Attached is a photo of the same truck today – now in service in as a pumper/tanker with 1,500 GPM pump and 3,000 gal poly tank and body. We appreciate the great service and support from Firetec that made this possible (the Firetec purchase completed a 3-year search for the right truck on which to install our poly tank and body).

Thank you for all your help in purchasing the used snorkel from West Seneca ,New York.The Chief there said he had just listed the rig on your site, the first day I contacted him. We had been trying to find an aerial that would fit our needs for almost four years. We plan to replace our heavy rescue within the next 18 months, and I will strongly recommend to my board of directors to check with Firetec first. Thanks again !!

August 4, 2006 We recently purchase a snorkel truck, from West Seneca,NY with the assistance of your firm. We had been looking for a rig that would fit our needs for quite some time. I saw the snorkel on the web site a sent a inquiry, someone contacted me the next day. Which really shocked me! The lady gave me the contact numbers for the fire company in New York. After about a month we had the deal worked out with Reserve Fire Company.

The truck was was placed in service this past week and has worked perfect. Firetec will have our Business with buying or selling fire apparatus in the future.

Thank you for all of your help with this purchase .

John Lewis

"I believe I contacted Firetec around the week of October 10th, 2005. They sent me information and pictures of a prospective pumper that met our criteria of type, size and price within a day of contact. We learned from them that another company was looking at the piece on Sunday, October 16th, 2005, in the morning. We made arrangements to look at the engine that same day in the afternoon. It was absolutely perfect for what we needed. Fortunately the other company had difficulty getting their down payment right away and we had the funds available. I told Firetec that we would make an offer and send a downpayment on 10/19. On Nov 7 we had a meeting and the District voters granted us permission to purchase. Firetec facilitated the sales documents and we picked up the vehicle on Nov 20th. Super quick, painless and easy. I would use Firetec again in a heartbeat. Thanks Barb and Jennifer!"

Chief John Greene
Montague, MA

"Appreciate y'all, you really helped us out. It's just what we needed. Better than we ever dreamed. I've already recommended y'all for some pumpers. I liked talking directly with the other volunteer department up there in New York and we paid 50% less than what we would have expected to pay for a truck in this condition. It didn't need any work done, the department took great care of it. Feel free to quote me on that."

Jesse Kirk
Shady Dale, OK

"Barbara, I tried other marketing avenues with absolutely no success. Though the efforts of the Firetec staff we had several inquiries on the engine. As a result of these inquiries, Firetec was successful in finding us a buyer. I would recommend Firetec and their staff to anyone who is considering selling surplus fire apparatus. Certainly the next time I have a surplus piece of apparatus for sale, my first contact will be the staff at Firetec. You and Jennifer make this thing tick. I'm pleased and the guys at the station are pleased."
Firetec Note: Jack and the folks at Four Communities FD generously donated additional equipment to the department, including several hundred feet of hose, clamps, spanner wrenches, ' 6" hard suction, (2) diesel generators (one functional and one for parts) AND filled up the gas tank for the trip home. New owners of the 1991 E-One Protector, Chief Rowe and members of the Burkesville, Kentucky VFD, travelled over 12 hours each way to pick up their new unit. Chief Norman, left and Chief Rowe, shake hands following the transaction.

Just a note,to say that we are very pleased with the truck we bought from Hardy,Virginia. It has worked at several incidents and has performed great. Also we met some great people in their department. I still stay in contact with their chief and have sent them pics of the truck after we finished lettering it. We appreciated all your help in us finding and purchasing this vehicle.

Greg Church
Hinsdale, NY

"Firetec is very easy to work with on all aspects of selling/listing equipment. No pressure on you at all! When we sold this Engine they guided us through the whole process. We sold two units within six weeks listing them with Firetec and we were very satisfied on the selling price. As we found out there is a great market for quality used fire equipment. After both units were sold we were still receiving calls from all over the US on their availability.
Highly recommend to any department."

"Thank you for the excellent service - we never expected you to find a customer and make our sale so fast! It will be a huge help to have the cash up front as we sign the contract for our new rescue/pumper/tanker."

John Adams and three others, your neighbors in Vershire, arrived in Varna yesterday afternoon to take possession of their "new" Mack American Eagle pumper. I'm getting a couple of things together for our treasurer to document the sale and I expect he'll have a check in the mail to you early this week.
We have truly enjoyed the experience of working with Vershire Volunteer Fire Department to complete the sale. The preliminary transactions up until last evening were sealed with a handshake - quite unusual any more, unfortunately.
Thanks for finding them for us.”

"We are currently getting the truck equipped for full use. We have the (reflective) lettering complete, reflective warning tape on the rear and all doors, most lights are on........... Once all the lights are in place, and equipment on board, I'll be sending you photos.
Thanks for your help in this project."

"I appreciate your company's help in locating the tanker that we bought. I had been told by several dealers that I would never find a truck with the specs I had given them for the price I was willing to give [but we found one through Firetec]. I will pass your website along to other fire departments looking for apparatus."

Alan Dyke
Athens, TN

"Yes we are closing the deal tomorrow morning and get shipped Friday. I want to thank you and Barb for all the work you helped me with on this. You guys are the best! I know why you sell so many trucks a year now: great service and support in selling. Any other fire trucks we buy I will make sure to come to you for help in finding. Your web site is very good and easy to use. The best thing is that you have the price of the truck. All other sites you have to call to get the price and it takes a lot of time to see if it is even what you want. Your site has every thing about the truck. A BIG THANKS again."

Gary Reeder
Wapanucka, OK

"We were not sure we would be able to sell our truck at all! We tried other brokers and tried ourselves-- only Firetec could sell it. We are very happy with the outcome.
The department that got our tanker really needed it. Your ability to get transportation for our buyer made the deal feasible. It was really nice doing business with you. If we ever have another truck to sell, I'll be calling you."

Bob Beattie
Nescopeck Twp.

"We are very happy with our vehicle and happy you were able to sell our old one. We tell everyone about you. Thanks again."

Thank you again for your help with coordinating things and enthusiasm towards our truck. Firetec was very accommodating through this entire time and the Members of our Department appreciate it greatly!

"We took delivery of Neola's truck yesterday; it was just what we were looking for......... we would still be buying used Department of Transportation utility trucks if we hadn’t found the truck on your website. Thanks again for your help!"

Michael Grant
City of Hollowell FD

"Well, after all the 'crazies', the buyer was an absolute pleasure to deal with- and so were you guys! Thanks!"


"It was a pleasure dealing with Firetec. They were very helpful from beginning to end in the sale of our fire truck and resulted in us receiving the best price ever for one of our used trucks. It sure beats the heck out of trying to sell locally. Firetec personnel gently urged us to set a fair price and resulted in a quick sale. Thanks Firetec. We will keep you in mind for the next one and I would urge anyone selling a piece of apparatus to use you folks."

"Our department has been in the market for several months for a used aerial truck. After many months of keeping our eye on a possible used apparatus through Firetec's advertising in the Fire Apparatus magazine, and working with their fine staff, we were able to locate a '85 aerial that we felt would be suitable for our needs.
We found the folks at Firetec to be extremely helpful, willing to do what we needed, and a key player in making our dream of a "first-ever" aerial ladder truck for our department become a reality!
Thank you for your help and assistance. It is greatly appreciated.
The truck has been a huge hit in the community and within a few weeks, once training is completed, the truck will be put into service."

Dave Frederick, Lt.
Yale, MI

BUYER, April 2005: "We are very pleased with the truck we bought from Hardy,Virginia. It has worked at several incidents and has performed great. Also we met some great people in their department.

Fulda Firefighters Find Ford Rescue Through Firetec

From March 2005 issue of Fire Apparatus

By Ed Ballam, used with permission of publisher.

FULDA, Minn. - If you ask the Wieskus brothers, they'll tell you the best place to buy used apparatus is through Firetec, the nation's largest used apparatus broker. As fire chiefs of their respective departments, the brothers Wieskus bought two rescue trucks, years apart and miles apart. They say it's a testament to the kind of service Firetec gives its customers.

Dan Wieskus, the fire chief of the Fulda (Minn.) Fire Department, recently bought a 1993 12-foot rescue, built by National on a Ford F700 cab and chassis. That apparatus came from the Grand Traverse Rural Fire Department, in Traverse City, Mich.

Just about two years ago, Dan's brother bought a 1992 Horton walk-in rescue in his capacity as chief of the Garretson Fire Department, Garretson, S.D.. That unit was bought from the Woolrich Fire Department in Swedesboro, N.J. "Firetec was a great help in an easy transfer of this unit," said Dan Wieskus of his new rescue in Fulda. "Everyone is pleased with our purchase."

The 1993 Ford rescue was driven from Traverse City to Fulda after the truck committee flew to Michigan on Jan. 28, on a private plane, flown by a pilot who donated the flight to the department. After inspecting the rescue and completing the transaction, the crew drove straight from Michigan to their station in Fulda, arriving the next day at 6 a.m. with no problems at all. On Jan. 29 they "changed things over from our old rescue van and put this one in service," Wieskus says. The members of the Fulda Fire Department were among 51 potential customers for the $42,000 rescue.
It is powered by a Cummins 190 hp 5.9 liter engine and an Allison AT545 transmission. It's equipped with a 15,000-watt pto generator, four 500-watt pole lights, two 1,500-watt scene lights and a reel with 250 feet of power cord. It also has a crew compartment for four with SCBA seats, a coffee maker and a refrigerator. Other equipment includes a 12,000-pound winch, two light boxes, low-band and high-band radios, warning lights, siren and a light bar. A special feature is an isolated 12-volt electrical system designed specifically to supply clean power to electronic equipment with a 190 amp Powerline alternator.
For Wieskus, the deal couldn't have been easier or gone smoother, to the credit of Firetec. "We would do business with them anytime," Wieskus says.

“ Barb, Firetec is very easy to work with on all aspects of selling/listing equipment. No pressure on you at all ! When we sold this Engine they guided us through the whole process . We sold two units within six weeks listing them with Firetec and we were very satisfied on the selling price. As we found out there is a great market for quality used fire equipment.. After both units were sold we were still receiving calls from all over the US on their availability.
Highly recommend to any department.”

Another unit which sold in the predicted price range. We will always give you an honest assessment! -Firetec
