Need a Golf Cart? Five Things to Consider Before You Rent

Posted in Golf Carts

Golf carts or utility carts are not just for the golf course anymore. Event planners, commercial enterprises and recreational enthusiasts often find themselves in need of a golf cart for the day or weekend. Renting a cart or several is a great way to facilitate your occasional need for convenient transportation without the expense of buying or maintenance. But before you rent a golf cart for your next sporting event, wedding or party, here are five things to consider.

  1. Gas or electric? Most golf carts come in both electric and gas models. Electric models are great for short trips over a few hours; however, longer trips or extended use may require a gas model.
  2. Size. Golf carts come in a wide variety of sizes, from small two-person models to large utility carts that can carry six or more people.
  3. Weight limits. Are you hauling luggage or equipment as well as people? Ask your golf cart rental store about weight limits on your cart and whether they have carts with cargo space.
  4. Street legal. Do you plan on using your cart on the road? Check the laws where you plan to use your cart and make sure you rent a model that has a street legal kit.
  5. Quantity and types. You don’t have to rent just one type of golf cart. Consider getting different sizes and types of carts to cover all your needs for your event.

Not sure what kind of golf cart you need? Call your local golf cart rental store to find out what models are available and explain your needs. They can match you with the right cart for every situation.
