We're an actual battery company, that's all we do. We have trucks to pick up and deliver batteries. Investments you don't make if you're an internet or eBay re seller.
We install batteries in sit down and stand up electric forklifts. We can bring an extra forklift if you don't have one. You're completely on your own with many eBay and internet re sellers - good luck with that.
Our trucks are equipped all of the tools necessary to get the job done. Like roller stands, to roll out your old battery and roll in the new battery. Lifting beams and chains. Tools and lubricant to loosen corroded bolts. Someone selling import batteries on eBay as a hobby doesn't concern themselves with these details.
Battery importers can't build out of the ordinary sizes and models, such as EE rated or spark proof batteries, or any size that's not a fast seller. Unique configurations for special applications would take months to arrive, and are not offered. Try getting anything out of the ordinary from an importer.
We service what we sell AND what others sell. We sell and service chargers, batteries and battery handing equipment. If we sell it, we can fix it. We also wash down batteries on-site.
Our base price does not include a core credit, but we do buy cores and it can be factored into a quote. Unlike internet retailers, we have the necessary resources to transport and process scrap batteries.
Watch for sites using stock pictures of forklift batteries gathered from the internet. Sometimes they borrow a picture from a competing website and photo shop out their logo, like they did on this one. Several websites are using the identical borrowed or stock photos with impunity. Perhaps it's time to do a little research and call them out on it.
No pictures of one of their batteries, in or out of a forklift? One could assume it's because they don't have or come in contact with batteries. If they did, they'd take their phone out and take a picture of one.
Sometimes, what you see is what you get. No warehouse. No repair shop. No trucks or service vans with their name on them. NO TOOLS. That means no way of servicing a battery. Quality aside, this should mean something.
All of their batteries ship from the inventory of the same importer. When the importer is out of stock, everyone is out of stock, and YOU are the one waiting for the the next container to arrive. This could be an issue If you've already paid for the battery and your forklift is down.
As with any big purchase, we recommend doing at least a little research before sending thousands of dollars to the person with the lowest advertised price.
These are six examples of the most widely copied and plagiarized photos of import forklift batteries on eBay and the web. Everyone seems to be using these six pictures of their "product".
Search "forklift batteries" on eBay and you'll find dozens of sellers offering this battery. What kind of battery is it? Nobody knows.
Another import battery image that's coveted by eBay sellers. Nothing says "me too" more than including this image.
We've discovered through legal proceedings that some of these sellers are not incorporated, and in one case the corporation is suspended by California due to unpaid taxes.
Some of these re sellers mix images from our company and other manufactures in with the generic images to give the appearance they know what they are doing.
Any time we notice one of our images used without permission, the offenders and their web hosting company receive a Cease and Desist and the host is served a "Notice and Take Down", to remove the site and content. It's a weekly occurrence.
