There is a lot that goes into buying a new cart. You don’t want to skip a few steps and end up with a cart that becomes more effort than its worth. To ease the process, Gator Golf Cars has put together this comprehensive list so you cane make an informed decision.

The Choice: 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.

Batteries, Batteries, Batteries

While you’re checking golf carts, used or new. 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.

Don’t Be Afraid to Test Drive
