How we compare 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:
- We purchase the competitor vehicle through authorized channels, usually a dealer, specifying standard equipment and asking for quotes on appropriate upgrades.
- 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.
- 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.
- We frequently check to see if anything has changed. If it has, we change the comparison. Or if the competitor informs us, as Taylor-Dunn did, that something has changed, we change the comparison. In that case, Taylor-Dunn had introduced a two-year warranty, but the change hadn’t been reflected in their published materials.
- 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.
