What to know!
The big question when considering your used golf cart is to decide if a gas-powered or battery-powered vehicle would best suit your needs. You need to know first, how you will use the cart and if there are any restrictions in the location you will be using the cart. Some golf courses, churches or community HOA’s may prohibit or charge additional fees on the use of one type of vehicle or another. There really is no answer as to whether gas or electric is better. Golf cart manufactures make both and it comes down to personal preference.
Consider all the uses you will have for your golf cart. Will it only be used on the golf course? Will you use in to travel around a gated community or will you take it to the extreme and use it for hunting in a rugged terrain? Think also about how you will store it and what accessories you might need to keep the cart protected.
As with any vehicle or ATV purchase maintenance of your golf cart is essential. At Southeastern Golf Carts we provide services for the maintenance of your cart whether gas or battery-electric powered. While gas models are heaper to maintain, engines cost more then batteries. Electrical carts have to have batteries checked on a regular basis and replaced every few years.
Age of the Cart
If taken proper care of a golf cart can have a life span of 30-40 years from manufactures such as the Club Car sold by Southeastern Golf carts. Keep in mind that the older the cart the harder it may be to find parts. So finding a seller/dealer who has knowledge and experience in examining the condition and age of the cart is a great financial benefit to the buyer. They will ensure that what the used golf carts they are selling pass a thorough inspection of all the cartelements from the frame to the engine and circuitry. Southeastern golf carts provides a warranty on the purchase of all used golf carts.
You will need to consider and understand the wide range of prices in the used golf cart market. A golf cart with customization and accessories will cost more then a basic model.
