People have different reasons for buying a golf car. Some want to have their own golf cart and use it when playing golf. Others are looking for a more convenient mode of transportation when running errands and going around the neighborhood (the vehicle is often referred to as a golf car when used in this context.) Whatever your reason might be for purchasing a golf cart, there are some factors you need to consider before making a purchase.
Permission to use a golf cart
Are you permitted to use a personal golf car on your golf course or in your neighborhood? Before you get too excited about buying one, you may need to check whether or not you can use it in your neighborhood. This is essentially the first thing you should do before purchasing one.
Keep in mind that there are golf courses that do not allow the use of golf carts on their courses and that personal golf carts are not permitted for use in some neighborhoods. If it is allowed in your neighborhood, you may want to ask about the rules, regulations and limitations of using personal golf carts. This may include where and at what speed are you allowed to drive it, as well as on which roads are golf carts allowed. A good place to start inquiring is with your home owners association.
Batteries and other parts
Unless you’re buiying a brand new golf car, you want to be sure that all of the parts are funtioning properly (particularly batteries and connectors) prior to purchasing. You should be wary about purchasing a used vehicle from a private seller unless you have some knowledge about golf car mechanics. At Best Golf Cars all of our refurbished cars are stripped down to their aluminum, rust-proof chassis, and all parts are removed and carefully inspected prior to being rebuilt. We offer warranties on all of our vehicles, as well as additional warranties on parts like batteries, so you can feel confident that you’re getting a quality golf car regardless of its age.
Test drive the golf car
To ensure you are buying a fully functional golf car, ask the dealer if you can take it for a test drive. Some of the things that you need to check when taking the golf for a test drive include switching the cart on, using the brakes, handling the steering wheel, and the performance of the wheels. You want to be sure that the car is in good working condition before deciding to buy.
If you’re looking for a used or refurbished car, we recommend purchasing from an authorized dealer only. At Best Golf Cars we thoroughly inspect every pre-owned car and rebuild it ourselves with new parts. We encourage you to come in and test drive any of our show room cars!
