Should You Rent or Buy a Golf Cart
On 30A, golf carts are a part of the culture. People don’t just take them golfing. They ride them down the street, take them to the beach, and even go grocery shopping in their golf carts. It’s no wonder that many parking lots include specific golf cart parking spots. It’s less hassle and less energy is used than driving the car. The question is, are they worth the investment to own or is it smarter to rent a golf cart? There are pros and cons to both, and the answer will differ depending on your needs.
Buying a Golf Cart
Certainly, there are benefits for some to buying a golf cart. If you use a golf cart regularly, it may save you money in the long run to buy one. You won’t have to worry about waiting on the golf cart delivery or returning it. You can also decorate or customize your golf cart to your liking once you own it.
However, there are drawbacks, too. First of all, there’s the initial cost. While it may save you money in the long run, the average new golf cart is about $5,000, and if you’re looking for an electric golf cart, you could be paying as much as $10,000. Golf carts also take up space, so if you don’t have enough room in your driveway, garage, or carport, you may have to pass on this option. You’ll also have to take care of the maintenance for both gas and electric golf carts, whereas when you rent, the rental company takes care of all that.
So when should you buy a golf cart? Really the only reason to justify the investment is if you plan to use the golf cart on a regular basis, and you have the space and time to keep and maintain the golf cart. Otherwise, here are a few reasons you might consider…
