Gas vs. Electric: Which Golf Cart is Right For You?January 28, 2016
Should You Buy a PreOwned Golf Cart?February 5, 2016
Buying a golf cart is really just like buying a car. You’ll visit the sales lot, look at the different makes and models available, pick out which vehicle fits your lifestyle and needs. There’s a helpful salesperson on hand to answer questions you might have, and — most importantly — you have the option to buy your vehicle brand new or to purchase pre-owned.
You may be wondering which of those options is the right one for you. After all, there are very good reasons to buy pre-owned and just as many good reasons to buy new. We have three ways to know if buying your golf cart new is the right choice.
#1: You’re Looking for Great Warranty Coverage
One of the top reasons to buy new is having access to warranty protection. We provide warranties on new purchases (you can learn more about that here), giving you important coverage for possible issues like brakes, body trim, bearings, fittings, and more.
If you’re worried about issues that might arise after you’ve signed the papers and taken your Cushman, E-Z-Go, or Bad Boy golf cart home, it’s important to buy new in order to have warranty protection.
#2: You’re Looking For a Golf Cart That Is Truly All Yours
Pre-owned golf carts tend to come with idiosyncracies based on years of already being used. Especially if you’re looking for a vehicle to take out on a farm or ranch or to use in wooded, marshy, or other non-paved areas, this kind of wear and tear can leave you fighting an older cart in a way that you simply won’t with a new one.
While the cost savings involved in purchasing pre-owned may be enticing, a new cart comes to you right after manufacturing. You take it home and start fresh. If you’re interested in a golf cart that hasn’t gone through possible hard use by previous owners, buying new is the way to go.
#3: You Want to Customize Before You Bring It Home
Pre-owned carts can also be customized and have extra parts or accessories added after the fact, of course — we pride ourselves on our quality customization and refurbishments of older carts (you can see an example a customer posted to our Facebook page here!). But perhaps you’re not looking to need to bring a pre-owned cart back in for extra parts, but to have it built to your specifications before you ever take it home.
In this case, you’ll want to purchase new. We have a list of parts and accessories that we’re able to provide to make sure your brand new golf cart works perfectly for your lifestyle, right from day one.
