Tips For Buying A Used Golf Cart
Buying a golf cart is a big decision that you don’t want to undertake lightly. Golf carts can be extremely practical both on and off the golf course, as an easy means of transport within gated communities, at the beach, on a campus or elsewhere. If you’re on a budget and looking to buy a golf cart, you should look into buying one used. There are a number of reasons why a used golf cart is a smart purchase, and this list of tips by Golf Cars of Arizona in Tucson should help you make the right decision.
Why Buy Used?
Buying a used golf cart will save you hundreds of dollars right off the bat, because you’re not paying the sticker price that the original buyer paid when it was fresh off the lot. Like any other vehicle, golf carts depreciate in value after purchase, so buying used is a smart choice if you’re on a budget, but you still want a great golf cart for use on the course or as quick transport within a small area.
Used golf carts are also generally just as good as new models, since the technology on them hasn’t changed much and they last a very long time. Even a golf cart made ten years ago will be as good as this year’s model, provided it was stored and maintained properly by its previous owners. Just make sure that you can find someone to help you maintain and get parts for the model you choose; a very old model might not be worth the cheaper cost if you have to source expensive, rare parts for it.
You also might be able to take advantage of any modifications a previous seller made to the golf cart, like added cargo racks or other features. This saves you money on aftermarket upgrades since you won’t have to do this work yourself!
Do An Inspection
Any reputable dealer or seller will let you inspect the used golf cart they’re selling and even test-drive it, so make sure you take advantage of this opportunity. You’ll want to make sure that everything functions as it should. If you’re buying a gas golf cart, you’ll want to check the oil and make sure the engine starts well. If you’re buying an electric golf cart, check the battery to see that it’s not corroded and that all the connections are good. Try out signals and brakes and listen for any strange sounds while driving. Get a feel for the steering and general handling, including how well the golf cart accelerates. Ask the seller how long they’ve had the golf cart and get ahold of any papers regarding ownership and maintenance that was performed on the cart. Having plenty of information will help you to make an informed and smart purchase.
