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.

 

A Note Regarding Motrec

On August 17, we were informed by a third party that Motrec had posted a release on their web site that accused Pack Mule of showing misleading information in its comparison pages. The release said that they had informed us of changes in their specifications, and we continued to show the older specs. Because we make every effort to provide accurate comparisons, we found the Motrec accusations very troubling and, we believe, untrue. Our response is:

  1. The specifications in the comparisons were accurate according to the Motrec website at least until mid-July.
  2. We were told of the Motrec press release on August 22, 2017, and we completed the updates on the comparison on August 25.
  3. Contrary to the release, we have no record of being informed by Motrec about changes in specifications. In an email to the Motrec CEO on August 28, we asked Motrec to advise us when and how they had communicated the changes. As of September 24, 2017 we have not received a response.

 

Our Comparison Methodology:

We go to great lengths to make sure that our comparisons 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 competitor vehicles from time to time 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.
  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, in the quote we received from their authorized dealer or published in their user manuals.
  4. We frequently check to see if anything has changed. If it has, we immediately change the comparison, as we do when the competitor provides us documentation of a change.
  5. We offer to back our comparisons 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.
