Pack Mule will configure the vehicle to your specs and get it to you.

Might provide a demo of a standard vehicle through a dealer

The best place to compare vehicles is in your own work environment. We make that easy by providing the vehicle, configured to your specifications, and letting you use it for a week. If our competitor will do the same, you can compare them side by side.

Delivery Time/Configured to Order

As little as 48 hours. Up to 3 weeks on larger orders.

Standard products are often available at the dealer’s, but special configurations are another matter.

Responsiveness is a basic part of our customer service. We can get you your vehicle quickly. The same is true for parts.

 

How we compare the Pack Mule to the competition.

We go to great lengths to make sure that the comparison between Pack Mule vehicles and others are as fair and accurate as possible. It doesn’t serve anyone’s interests for those depending on the comparisons to be disappointed. Basically, here’s how we do them:

  1. We purchase the competitor vehicle through authorized channels, usually a dealer, specifying standard equipment and asking for quotes on appropriate upgrades.
  2. The competitor vehicle is tested alongside the Pack Mule in our plant. It may not be exactly like your environment, but it’s a lot closer than relying on ad copy.
  3. Wherever possible, we use the specifications on the machine we purchased. When we need additional specs, we use the ones published on the competitor’s web site or published in their user manuals.
  4. We frequently check to see if anything has changed. If it has, we change the comparison. Or if the competitor informs us, as Motrec did, that something has changed, we change the comparison. In that case, Motrec had introduced a two-year warranty, but the change hadn’t been reflected in their published materials.
  5. We back the comparison up with on-site demos. If you’re currently using another manufacturer’s electric industrial vehicle, we’ll provide a Pack Mule for you to do your own comparison.
