It took Maxpro Pedicabs 5 years to develop the right techniques in cutting, welding, and building these rickshaws to make sure that the products we offer represent the highest quality and safety. And it's no wonder that fake Maxpro pedicabs are of very poor quality - as these are made by people with no experience in engineering or product development who simply copy the product as they see it, having no idea what techniques were used to build it. We've received a high number of calls from customers who bought fake Maxpro pedicabs - being unaware that they were buying an illegal copy - and after just a few months of usage the vehicles had signs of frame cracking and structural faults.
