A New Cart for a New Year 2014 is coming to an end. Start fresh in 2015 with a new addition to your home or fleet. Buying a new cart is no easy purchase. There are many questions you should be asking yourself; What do you look for? How do you know that you’re making the right decision? Gator Golf Cars is helping you determine which cart is the one for you!

The first thing that you’ll want to consider is why are you purchasing a golf cart. Is it for the golf course? Are you looking for a sustainable step in your transportation? Deciding what purpose you want the cart to serve will determine which vehicle, model, and style will best serve your needs.

Used vs. New

Purchasing a used cart can be a real money saver but be smart about it. Older carts may cost that saved difference in new parts or consistent maintenance. Always ask questions; the cart’s history, its age, any current issues, and why it’s being sold. If you want to skip a potential headache and start fresh, a new cart is the way to go. Gator Golf Cars offers finance plans to make carts affordable.

Check Those Batteries

While you’re checking the cart, used or new, don’t forget to check the battery age of the batter. A golf cart’s battery is the beating heart of the vehicle. It can also be an expensive one. Before making your purchase, inquire the age. Anything over two years old may need replacing. A dead or damaged battery however, is what you should really keep an eye out for. While you’re at it, ensure that your cart comes with a charger. Purchasing a separate charger can cost as much as $450!

Test Drive

As with anything, a test can’t hurt! Test drive your vehicle before making the final purchase. Your considered cart should ride smoothly, that means no jerking, stuttering, or hard stops or starts. Don’t be afraid to ask questions! Buying a new cart is a big decision and should be treated as such.
